    Rockin and rootin at Chewton...

    Thanks Steve for lead and sweep Cujo. Amazing and sometimes crazy trails, especially when its raining and hailing on you. Just over 60 km for the day. Very tired and sore. Until next time.

    Neerim with Mick 12/8

    Great ride Mick. Well done. Thanks to sweeps and to Dylan for the 21 inch tube. There was a tiny split around the base of the valve stem on my HD tube after shop installation on Sat. Now replaced, all good. Great pics.

    Exploring the bay - July 14th

    Spot on - 300 is better for the technical hill climbs, creeks, logs - FX is a fire trail weapon and also good on downhills where it feels planted and precise. FX feels better in corners, but not by much but thats just a 4T thing - interestingly they weigh about the same. IMHO 300 overall does more hard stuff better, FX does the open stuff better. FX will prove to be more maintenance intensive, the 300 just had 1st top end at 7k - 240 hrs - was all still within spec.

    Exploring the bay - July 14th

    Was a superceded new 17 model and way cheaper (about 2k+) than an FE. I still have a 17 300 set up for tight stuff - so wanted a race bike for club days and ponys. The FX is great in the desert handles way better than any EXC I have had and works on an MX track. Its failings though are flaming out on real tight technical terrain, fan always going in the tight (battery risk & no kicker) if i had to have one bike only for all rides it would be a 300 2T. For a second fun bike the FX is a blast.

    There was a track next to the creek sections overlooking it. So with some of the other riders only did parts of the creek. You could get in and out of the creek at some points. FX is still prone to stalling if revs come down just above idle - 300 much better in the tight techy stuff.

    Terrific and tricky at times - loved it. Well done Habs. You are the Goughs Guru. Also a great crew to ride with who were happy to help an old bloke when he had the odd “tits up” moment on his Husqy.

    15/16 KTM SXF 450 AS A TRAIL BIKE

    Great for open sandy tracks and desert or fire trails but not suitable for tight trails above level 2. Flame outs, gearing wrong, suspension too hard, fuel range limited, If you keep to level 2 rides you could get by.

    Cobaw in search for Dakota`s tracks

    Thanks Marko - another great ride on fantastic and sometimes difficult trails. The rain and cold only added to the fun. Got to ride Gypsys new 300 TPI - very nice.

    BearMX and the Big Desert Adventure

    I think that one is about 8k long with no cross tracks.

    BearMX and the Big Desert Adventure

    Not yet locked in but we could do a dirtriderz desert ride on the Melb Cup weekend - to do it properly a 4WD support vehicle and driver are needed.
