This is an account of some biking trips I have done over the past few years
with my two best mates. It all started in 1995 when Patrick lent me
his Honda XR600 which he had bought a couple of years previously. He was living
in London at the time, and not getting to use the bike much off-road, so he decided to
lend it to me so that I would pick up the off-roading bug.
I was working in Spain at the time, and after a few months enjoying the XR's massive torquey grunt on the trails around Madrid, I bought myself a brand-new XR. Mark, never one to miss out on a good thing, got himself one too from the same dealer.
A few months later we decided it was high time to visit the Sahara..
