After passing my motorcycle test I was allowed to ride a motorcycle over 125cc as long as it was under 33bhp (23kw) so I eyed up the XT350 that my dad had been using for Trials events. I ended up with the bike after some nice person decided to steal the DT125LC and the RD125LC which later we recovered just down the road in Shepton Mallet. The XT did me proud as I did the odd LDT on it, used it for collage and back then used it while living in Cornwall for trips to college and back and the 160mile ride home. Sadly stolen after a weekend marshalling a Horse Cross County Event. Only to return once the bike was sold to another person and he went to register it with the DVLA. I then rode it in the Cambrian rally as the the KLR650 Moose had been stolen to get back at me for the return of the XT.
