    Gypsy Wombat 16th Dec Birthday ride.

    Awesome report Cruiser Yesterday's ride was off the charts!! Was my 1st LVL 3+ and had a grin from ear to ear all the way home until I passed out on the couch for an emergency arvo recovery nap Thanks Gypsy for putting the ride together and letting me try my luck at a 3+. Cruiser & Pittman was a pleasure to ride with you. Some hot baths and massages are definitely going to be needed for the next few days

    Gypsy Wombat 16th Dec Birthday ride.

    A visit to the rock face for a play. Yeah I didn't exactly shine here either lol. The hill that I have to get back to one day. Thanks for a great day on the bikes blokes. Was great to all conquer a wall today. Will def be back for more punishing tracks next year.

    Gypsy Wombat 16th Dec Birthday ride.

    Whilst many attempts were made on this roller coaster wall. Getting over the top on this occasion alluded the couple of hill climbers willing to test there skills on it.

    Gypsy Wombat 16th Dec Birthday ride.

    We did a climb to the look out. This was a very cool track which I really enjoyed. And the view wasn't "Dissapointing".
  6. Getting up at 4:30am sucks in anyone's language. But when it's to go visit a place I was hanging to get back too. It all seemed worth it. Arriving at the unloading spot first followed closely by Pittman, with Gypsy coming a very close 3rd. Bubalu only minutes behind. Didn't take long to be all suited up and on the bikes by 7:30am. So fast in fact, I didn't have time to have my morning ritual of weet-bix. Smashed out some terrific flowing tracks. With great hill climb challenges in between. Whilst I had my shiny moments and made some climbs look like a walk in the park. One hill beat me. I couldn't seem to even get a good start on the football sized rocks meandering up to the top. In the end. Gave in. And let my bike go up without me with Gypsy at the wheel. Yep, this hurt. The hill climbs on this ride were right up there for technically challenging, relentlessly wanting to make you earn your right to climb it. And today was plenty of grip. Loved your loop Gypsy, There's a hill out there I will be back for. Before we knew it 80 odd ks later it was 1:00PM and time to call it a day just before a couple of showers came thru. Great to have you on this ride Bubalu. I'm tipping we will see you more often on the higher level rides. Pittman hope your leg is letting you work today. I landed on my hip at one stage. That is letting me know it's there today. But not too bad. Till we ride again Cruiser

    You've been offered it, so that means it free doesn't it ? even Bear would probably take a free KTM ?

    4 strokes are good when you get old fat and slow.......works for me....
  11. The pace was slow at first with a few runners out in the forest...
  12. Selling my gen 3 spot tracker folks...a good buy if your in the market Happy to negotiate of course http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/sunbury/other-electronics-computers/spot-messenger-gen3/1203333742
  13. Maybe sell the house to buy the goggles when the market picks up.
  14. Maybe you could sell your house. Homeless people still need their eyes protected when they ride. Seriously Daz, they are yours! My missus bought me some not long ago so these would be spares. Better off protecting some homeless families father so he can keep his eyes in good condition! Maybe best not to sell the house just yet and use these for now..... Merry Christmas mate. P.S. I just noticed that was your 666 message. Hope that was really you talking.......

    For the Vics it will be the best bike because that’s what the XC-F is built for , fast flat open tracks [emoji106]

    Thanks for the info. If I go ahead it will be used for mainly racing the Vics and club rounds. That’s why I was leaning toward the xc-f’s

    Depends on what type of riding you do. I have a 17 Husqy FX350 which is the Husqy version of the XC-F. (I also have a 17 EXC300) The FX is a great race bike for ponys/cross countries/a play on on MX track/desert. However will overheat in the tight(fan needed) will tend to flame out in technical stuff - stalls much quicker than the 300. Will require more maintenance being a 4t. cheaper to purchase than 300. Rec reg only. No kick start. Air forks are great - only the left leg has air. Changing PSI is like changing springs. Ultimate adjustability. The japs could not get airforks right. Husqy/KTM did. Weight saving is significant as a heavy spring is replaced with a bag of air. As an all rounder in technical stuff the 300 is king. If you are a fire trail hero or race XC then the XC-F is a great bike.

    Nothing wrong with the AER forks mate they are brilliant, I’d be more concerned about flame outs with the XCF , if your riding is manly the tighter tracks stick to what you have been riding 250-300 2t.
