It’s a pretty sizable hole and from the rubbish lying around it was obvious the track has been rebuilt before, there were a number of concrete retainer posts and lumps in the debris.
Using what was lying around we managed to fashion a bridge of sorts and got the bikes across, though it’s not likely to be there past the next rainfall.
This was my first time on Porters Road and I should have done it ages ago, if you like something lumpy and bumpy get down to this and give it a go! I highly recommend it.
I had a few more issues here as well, a lot of Porters Road has a sandy base, and with my E-07 worn down to the center line I struggled for traction in quite a few places. Also I have my DR on the low suspension setting because of my much higher seat and along with the weight of a full 30 litre Safari tank resulted in a few ground clearance issues, at least that’s my excuse anyway.

A quick stop
Huge thanks to @brainflex for pulling me out quite a few times and showing me around.
