After the success of the first installation of Farmer on Patrol, Josh Gleave hops aboard his fresh Patrol to show the world some more Cheshire loam in Farmer on Patrol 2.
Filmed over 4 months and with 95% of trails built especially for filming, a lot of effort went into this video. Many an evening was spent carving loam, setting up cable-cams, mucking about with tractors and trying to dodge the ever brilliant UK weather. Grab a brew and enjoy the turns.
Disco Bob has been at it again. The bloody vandal. Josh noticed him snooping around the farm whilst loading his bike on for a ride, so took drastic action to try and mow the bugger down. We'll get you next time, Bob.
Some early autumn shapes and colours down at the local.
When there are no turns, there are ruts. Preferably ones you can hoon into and pop out the other side in a cloud of your own roost.
A few swings of the hips brings you around these tight buggers nicely.
Turns for days. I (Tommy) cut these corners in myself, with the help of Andy Morris, with FOP2 in mind. They're usually the slippiest and sloppiest turns around, but the wind dried them out nicely for us, making them run super quick. Josh dips the Tranny in here and gains ultimate exit speed.
Ever ridden straight through a tree and it out the other side? We eyed this stump up back in the Autumn and it had to be done. A full bench cut run-in was dug, and the lip installed. Josh's common sense was telling him to really, REALLY not ride straight at a tree!
There are no words for how good the loam is on this hillside. It's where dreams are made.
Josh is an avid climber when he's not on a bike, so took full advantage of the sandstone cliffs littered around the hillside.
Josh slithers down the steep, leafy slopes above the prehistoric shoreline above. Not bad for a relatively flat part of the UK.
Big thanks to Bob Mackay and Rob Kennerley for the help.
