  1. I recently watch a video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/ARiemann1 (cant remember which video) where he coats the tube with rubber grease to stop pinch flats with low pressures. Seemed to make sense when he showed how the tube slips between his fingers when trying to pinch it. Anyone else do or heard of this?
  2. First ride out in God knows how long and sqeezed into the level 3. Before the ride I was hoping it would be slow going due to the numbers but the grouped moved really well. Really good bunch of riders all happy to be out and about doing what we love. Tracks started off with some id seen before which helped me get back into it. I was traveling along well as we went through andersons garden. Plenty of singles, small hills and creek sections. Until it was mention we are going DOWN SWAMP HILL. After afew uncertain faces from afew and some advice from cruiser some of the group went around to meet us up the top of ROCKY BASTARD. Well going down was the least of my worries. Got half way up rocky bastard with my little legs hanging off the gasser and I dropped it hard. Bent my bark buster and smashed my clutch cover. Oil pissing out I managed to get to the top and access the damage. Nice crack and a small hole in the case. Abit of quick steel and a quick check of the now below min oil level and off we went. 2nd half had more hills and alot of stuff i hadnt done before, going well until 3rd GEAR HILL. My memorys from last time was as the name suggest just hit it hard. So thats what i did, 3 or 4 attempts with the bike going every which way but up without success. After thinking about it back at the car, that probably was my problem hitting it to hard and losing control 3qrts of the way up, that and my little legs hanging off the back. Anyway get back to the cars and its in full swing, tents are up, bbqs firing and loads of people hanging around for a chat. Thanks to everyone involved. For a social no membership/club 'Event' it was very well run and the reason it gets bigger every year. HOW GOOD ARE DIRTBIKES, even after the day I had ,a week later I'm sitting here having breakfast thinking about the ride and when I can get out next.
  3. How'd ya go riles, get him sorted?
  4. Thanks for the ride today gents, big thanks to the majenta and the boys who swept. As above some new stuff some old and lots of dust. Happy to get out and amongst it.
  5. Sadly the old girl spends most of its time in the corner of the shed. Lucky to get ridden twice a year but never fails to start with fresh fuel and a few kicks. Engine performs really well and easy to see why these where the rage back in the day. It normally just get flogged as a extra bike down the farm or a relative to learn on. I might sell it an buy a 80cc mxer for a bit of old time fun until the kids are older but its to good a bike tell move on for the price they sell for.
  6. Only the one colour in the enduro version as above. I got the same. Plenty of colours in the mx version. The bloke said the only difference is the sole has a different pattern.
  7. Hey guys just a heads up. Forma boots are have a sale on all old stock, display boots ect until the 10th of this month. They are now in the factory estate behind team moto and amx epping. Picked ul a set of predator enduros for $280. The model down are $180. They also have plenty of road and dual purpose stuff super cheap.

    Like I said I know stuff all about property but with a young family I'm always thinking about the future. I cannot think of anything in the world that is cheaper now than it was in years gone by. I grow up around Thomastown and recently a house sold for over 1 mill, if you asked me 10yrs ago I would have told you, your dreaming a house in that area would get anywhere near that. People want to be close to cities and all the activities that go a long with them.

    Investments

    Sorry to jump in guys, I definitely know more about footy than real estate but have been looking into the market for a investment/rental. Prices in my area have sky rocketed and I'm finding it hard to justify paying twice as much for a house half the size of mine. I'm in the mernda/Doreen area and with train station finally coming in the min house price would be around 400k for a tin shed. So in saying that I've been looking at other options in different locations, similar to above a villa/town house in Noosa qld can be snapped up for under 400k in prime locations. They get rented out and looked after by a house keeper of sort. It sounds similar to the air BnB setup and I would have access to it for curtain periods of the year.
  10. IV got an early 80's it175 in the shed I plan to clean up one day. It only comes out 1 or 2 times a year when I camp at a family farm and always fires up straight away. Always surprised at how well the motor goes, easy to see why they where so loved back in the day.
  11. Main reason to stop sliding back on hill climbs and when I'm knackered and the front wheel wants to say hello.
  12. Hey guys, I'm thinking of shaving down my seat and leaving a little step up at the rear or adding a hump to help keep me forward on the bike. I'm leaning toward shaving the seat as I'm not the tallest but don't wanna butcher it and it feels like shit. Anyone had any experience with them? Love or hate them
