Yes, its the 56m-high Claerwen Dam in the Elan Valley with a nearly sheer gradient of 72% and a surface of stone laid by the Italian stonemasons called in to build the dam in the early 1950s, it isn't a challenge which many vehicles could even attempt, but makes a perfect scenery for a foto of K bike.

My friend had the fortune to work with the MI battalions as a liaison in UK so learn a lot about the country learn also about Northern Ireland.
As for the knowledge for mine a new Greece or Bust trip Version II, can compensate it. Brian can be the leader and as for followers believe there will be some.

No way , my house and the one of my cousin (empty and only 50 yards away) will be hosting you. There is no way I can except that you all travel two thousand miles and not offer accommodation. You now that Brian and I don't take no as an answer. 8)
