  1. The Walking Dead

    Hahaha I love that show, I'm also up to date on FTWD and Z Nation. I also up to date with the Walking Dead comics!!!
  2. Hydration

    I vote for the flight vest. Bought one last week and used it for the first time, felt way better than any backpack I've had previously and the myriad of pockets let's you store gear better for ease of access should you need it. Yes it's a bit expensive at almost $200 but I think well Worth it

  4. Grand Final lvl3+ Dissa

    We'll all I can say is wow!!!!! What a great loop Buzz has put together, it's a cracker. So thanks Buzz for leading and I'm glad that after soo many time trying to get on the ride the stars finally aligned !! Great bunch of riders to head out with and tackle the terrain, awesome mix of fire trail, overgrown fire trail and hilly 4wd tracks. I particularly liked the hill with the skeleton of a failed 4by attempt. Great climbs and I was happy with my ascent on 3rd gear hill, had it dialled in perfectly for that one.....swamp hill got the better of me and I gave up electing to take the chicken track to save energy.....the really wet tracks were awesome full of slippery rocks and logs and ledges, lots of spent looks on riders as we all persevered. The goat track is ridiculous and I got smacked with a rather severe quad cramp half way through holding up the group which for me felt like an eternity, thanks Dan for some salt!!!! Thanks to Gypsy for the organising and keeping up all entertained in the lead up with great banter, thanks to BayerJ for sweeping all day and not complaining at all. Also was great to see the people on the 2+ ride all looking satisfied after the ride and kudos to the BBQ and beer people, all fantastic blokes and great community attitudes. Andersons garden camp area I reckon had 40 cars parked in it with campers almost on top of each other(not in a good way) and heaps of cars everywhere !!! Overall I had a great day, wish I rode better but hey that's how it went!! Thanks again to all leads sweeps, organisers and food and beverage people. Until next time!!! Cheers [emoji482]
  5. I'll post it after the grand final. (Remember I said to keep the last weekend in October free!)
  6. Greendale For Two

    Hahahaha heap sweep duties were really challenging on this ride - was getting held up everywhere!!! Thanks Fab for putting on a "long shot" ride - perfect day for it and allowed me to run in the new top end. The loop you've put together is really good and I'd encourage others to get on it next time you run it - if I'm available on the day I'll definitely come along. Some stuff I'd never ridden before was great - the track fairy section was excellent - and some play hills were also lots of fun - sketchy on the down slope though!!! Anyway had a good day out!! Cheers [emoji482]
  7. My next door neighbour repairs all types of devices and specialises in car stereos ect ...if you want the number let me know
  8. Mo-tow (or similar generic carriers)

    I've had both and currently use a Rack n roll carrier. It's far superior to a Mo-tow and more secure for the bike. If you can afford it - get the Rack n Roll
  9. Boot repair/replacements

    Thanks everyone very helpful
  10. Recently after losing the toe caps on my sidi crossfire 2 boots the front of the soles have started to split. I can purchase new soles on eBay for about $60 My questions to everyone is does anyone know a good boot repair place in Melbourne that can actually fit these?
  11. Macca's after rides..

    Maccas is fantastic and great if part of a balanced diet, that said after a ride a feed of Maccas is really good, but you need to be disciplined enough to order the healthy options and stay away from the less healthy stuff. Alternatively pack some tuna, rice crackers etc...

  13. Spring Hill - the rivalry ride

    What a fantastic day out.....Thanks to Marko for putting on such an awesome day and accommodating some 20 riders...great turn out I thought and an awesome group to hit the trails with. Great conditions and mix of terrain, excellent pace being set and everyone trail etiquette was fantastic letting quicker riders through when and where possible. Minimal breaks and some top moments on some of the hills and the play hill....yes the Rocket man made an appearance after some time away and I'll say he looked to be having a blast although couldn't quite tame that hill. The second half of the day saw me lay the bike down(well that's how I recall it) 90% of the way up a cracker of a snotty hill (for which I was smashing till this point) oily substance appeared to be leaking out so kill the engine flip it over and there was quite a large hole in the clutch cover where the rear brake lever went through it, prior to it snapping in half!!! So a 30 minute delay to fix the cover (metal putty is a must for any trail ride!!) and make the bike rideable again saw me calling it a day and headed back to the cars, Stef accompanied me and we managed to navigate our way back although with no rear brake we did taken main roads, I will say road riding is crap and it was freezing!!!!!! I was glad to be back in dry warm Clothes and had the heater set on 25 degrees all the way home. So I'll buy a new cover and lever and be ready for another ride soon!!! Again thanks Marko for leading and Bayerj for sweep duties. Till next time people!!!
