    Heres a better quality render of the footage, i wasnt happy with the first one
  7. G'day all, Just thought Id post up about my explore ride in Goughs bay yesterday. I've been riding this area for a while now and thought in preparation for the L4 september 15th ride i'd like to make it different and somewhat harder in places. (Buzz, Mev and Gypsy I think you'll like it!!!) So I posted an explore ride and ended up through DirtriderZ and other friends with 11 keen riders to help explore. No plan, just literally ride around and look for interesting stuff..... We I'm pleased to report that after seeing the temperature in Goughs bay on the drive in drop to minus five degrees the day could not have been better, it was cool not cold, moist not wet and some in the pack reported dust???? IN WINTER???? well I never saw that so didn't bother me at all. we rode such a great mix of terrain all over the Bay, with some 80K(or there abouts) racked up by the end and we barely even saw my normal loop...... The chatter from the guys gave me the impression they were impressed and happy with the ride, even though there was no plan, I had little to no idea what was around the next bend, over the next hill etc.... Well it all worked out, got great footage (I've deliberately not included the first 30% of the ride as I'm keeping that as a surprise for the brave souls that come up in September.....Trust me when I say it'll be worth the drive)of the day and apologies for the slightly longer video edit....Too much good stuff I had to leave in..... great to ride with such a good crew and meet some new people. Well hope you enjoy the vid and hopefully catch a few of you on a ride in the future

    As per my commitment, here is some of my edited footage of the ride, its hard to decide what to keep and what not to as theres always heaps of good stuff, my camera angle was a bit high so I'll readjust it for the next ride. Again, was a great day out with plenty of fun!! sorry stuffed up the edit, im redoing it now, will post again later tonight

    Thanks to Phil for putting on the ride and to the sweeps, it was a well organised and planned ride that took in some great terrain and skill set application,several of which I failed at as I don’t ever recall my bike sliding out from under me so many times in a single day before. I had an excellent day, tried out a new GoPro so I’ll edit some footage soon and post up a video to form the rest on my report Cheers people !!

  13. Thanks Dusty for organising the ride and moreso to Mr. 99% for taking on the responsibilities of leading when Dusty had to pull out. It was great to get out on the bike and hit the trails with a top bunch. This was only my second ride for the year and I had a great day, making it up swamp hill FINALLY!!! For the first time, I’ve tried that hill and always failed just shy of the top, but I got a great feeling of satisfaction yesterday when I made it. Great to see people stepping it up and having a go, big shout out to Gypsy who was on and off his bike all day running up and down hills to lend a helping hand to who ever needed it. Thanks also To Hoff and Kmatt taking over sweep duties at half time. Looking forward to the next ride!! Only got a couple of pics, and a couple of short vids at 3rd gear hill, will upload shortly.
