    Not knocking your choice, but that front mudguard will soon fill up with mud

    I've had 2 days out on my new to me Sherco ST 250 Factory 2018 and really enjoyed it, a bit stiff the days after in all the wrong places, but every one has been so friendly and helpful, glad I didn't get a new one as I have put a few extra marks on already .

    Just a quick up date, all pre virus, I've got riding with a great bunch of lads, because I'm about 20 years older than most of them they call me Jurassic Steve but really look after me when they mark out a section they have an over 70s route lol. My son got the bug and bought a Montersa 4RT and of course we tried each others bike, I liked it so swopped a road bike for a 2014 4 RT and like it as much as the Sherco but for different reasons. If any one fancies a go at trials give it a go, I've got a new group of friends and trials riding gives me a really good work out even if I have the bruisers to prove it.

    They look special and I did think about one but the tubeless tyres of the Stone won it, if you do your own servicing and they are dead easy to work on I've got a spare pair of rocker cover gaskets you can have free
