    • Yes you did see it as so did i 🙂 At least your not crazy

    • As Richard correctly points out – the TRF is a broad church where everyone is welcome.

      The bigger picture is that we are successfully managing to demonstrate to parliament that the majority of Trail riders are the responsible majority and the TRF has significant influence within that majority.

      With this in mind the pretence of members…[Read more]

  • Isn’t it amazing how quick people are to criticise anything new?! Already there are negative posts simply because people expect it to be an update of what we had before. It’s clearly not just an update it’s different, fresh, modern, technically advanced and looks good right from the outset. I’m sure it will get even better as new features are…[Read more]
