  1. Good post Gypsy - these straps are essential and help prevent crushed fingers. Front tugger universal fit on MXstore is $31.
  2. What's 'the downsides' to running a 2T up there..? The downside is you will have a lot of 4T’s getting in your way.
  3. KTM 300 on a HC ride (Jman and Arbo) In 2016. No problems. 14 or 15 CS sprocket will do the trick.
  4. Well done BigPete - he knows that area very well and leads a great ride. Pity about the weather.
  5. Some edited GoPro of the earlier parts of the ride. Sorry about the quality I blame fog/moisture on the lens.
  6. Big thanks to Gypsy for organising and sweeping all day and Habs for leading. Lots of Dirtriderz crew at Goughs on several rides. Post COVID lockdown and the place was full of caravans, tents, 4WD’s, utes and bikes. It was -2 overnight we woke to a cold foggy day. Nine of us began this epic ride that included rough, rocky uphills that go forever, slippery downhills, logs, tree roots, creek crossings. Typical Goughs fun. A few riders including me were challenged if not pushed to their limits. Several pulled out early in the ride, realising what was to come or with mechanical issues. Or discovering what that little “+” means in 3+. Stef snapped a brake perch and limped back to camp. My clutch lost fluid (loose nut on the Magura assembly) late in the ride, and I was out. Here are some pics from the GoPro. Body still in recovery mode. May take a few days...
  7. 2021 Betas - Available August NEW RR 2T-4T MY 2021 The Red Enduro is back, in better shape than ever! After two months without off-road riding, the Red World Champions of Enduro are back with a new Model Year. The Italian bike designed and assembled entirely at Betamotor’s Rignano sull’Arno premises, brings in the new 2021 RR Range with numerous evolutions of the new generation model launched in 2020. In 2019, the world-renowned duo Steve Holcombe and Brad Freeman achieved a double world victory unprecedented for Beta. Holcombe became E3 World Champion, while Freeman achieved the same result for the prestigious EnduroGP. In addition to the tests performed in competition fields, the huge success of the RRs among enthusiasts all over the world has enabled Betamotor technicians to further test, develop, and improve the RR’s, resulting in a 2021 bike that is a mix of high quality, technological innovation, and riding pleasure. This relentless quest for success which has been built on top level competitions, exhausting tests of Beta’s research and development team, and feedbacks from enthusiasts have made it possible to fine-tune and apply numerous improvements on the new RR’s. A more aggressive look and an all-red colouration are the icing on the cake for this Model Year ̶ with the Beta logo in centre stage on the radiator shrouds. The new RR models in a nutshell: RR 2T 125 The smallest bike in the Beta range, it is the lightest and easiest to handle. In pure racing style, it is suitable for both young riders coming up from the lower categories and more expert riders looking for a fun bike. RR 2T 200 The chassis set-up and engine derived from its smaller sibling, ensuring it’s extremely light weight and excellent handling but with decidedly greater torque and power. Oil injection and an electric starter complete the package which is perfect for Enduro enthusiasts. RR 2T 250 Ideal for those looking for a gentler 2-stroke bike with slightly less power and torque than top-of-the-range models to ensure excellent handling. RR 2T 300 Made for those who appreciate a big engine with significant torque at any speed. Suitable for those who favor long gearing. RR 4T 350 This is the easiest-to-handle bike in the 4-stroke model range; it favors high-rev riding yet retains a very linear power output. RR 4T 390 With an ideal handling to power ratio, its winning feature lies in its outstanding traction. RR 4T 430 A high-performance engine that is at its best when the rider exploits the long gearing and significant torque. RR 4T 480 This bike best expresses itself in wide open spaces. Its characteristics are similar to the 430 model but with even greater torque and power, suitable for more expert and physically fit riders. The updates list: - Updated frame in the steering head area and in the reinforced plates for improved feel and durability. - The accessories supplied have been modified to provide better protection against wear. - Improved rear subframe, more robust and durable. - New side-panel mounting, for easier installation - Updated tank cover cap for improved mounting. - Renewed seat improved on both the base plate and the foam – now providing better support for a more comfortable ride. - Optimization of the air filter box for improved waterproofing; new mounting in the filter inspection side panel for a more practical use. - New electrical system, with improved charging efficiency. - Upgrade of numerous internal components of the ZF fork, to further improve fluidity and reliability. - New shock absorber setting to increase traction. - Updated speedometer giving better reliability and precision. - New bright red colouring and graphics. Available from: August 2020 Pricing remains unchanged from 2020 models.
  8. Very happy with my Beta 2020 300 RE - only about 950k so far thanks to lockdown. KYB, Keihin carb, 9.5L tank, linkage rear, no oil injection, great fast light package at a great price. At the Beta ride day last year at Whittlesea the 200 and 300 were the pick of the bunch. Just sold my 17 KTM EXC - 1st time in over 20 years I haven’t owned at least one KTM.
  9. +1 for the 2020 Beta 200. I rode the same bike as Kmatt. Light and fast. Better than a 300 in the tight.
  10. Speedy recovery mate - the trails will still be there when you are ready.
  11. Don’t provoke the TPI fanboys - they go feral
  12. I think this is in the ‘Not happy’ category
  13. Last 24 (approx) carb 2T bikes very happy
  14. Day rides - no overnight - 10 or less riders - 1.5 m separation. Forests open. We will need to wait for further lockdown relaxation for the great multi day rides like Goughs, Mackas Grampians, Big Desert etc.
