  1. Dont forget the value of just rolling the front wheel. If a rider is stuck in a pinch/slippery rock/step up at the rear wheel, if they are on the bike and you can roll the front wheel by hand to get them past the spot and then they are on their way. Because you are turning the wheel you have to be careful for the spokes/forks/fingers etc but it works well. Tugger straps should be on all of our bikes and are great but because they are mounted at higher positions, they actually take more effort. The other flip side of this is that they are a great spot to tow from/attach a tow strap for group pu
  2. Good luck Splints. My wife reckons she wouldn't want to go through it twice so I wish you all the best. But she was on that many drugs that she really doesn't remember it, I however remember it clearly, it wasn't fun at times, and other times it was fun! She was very emotional, for 3 days!
  3. Remember guys and gals, it has to be you and your bike and a background. The first 2 are leading so far!
  4. Cheers to all who got in their and had a crack at making this a great weekender. I turned up on Saturday arvo just for the social side as I still can't ride at the moment unfortunately. I really do miss riding with everyone which is why I had to catch up for at least the social side, even if its about a 3 hour drive! I turn up to get directed in by Little John who I hadn't seen in I don't know how many years. I quickly say g'day to 1 or 2 peeps before parking the car and setting up swag and awning before the festivities started. I did a quick lap saying g'day to many faces that I haven't
  5. No Joy BrucieT. Hoping for a quick recovery for you
  6. He was becoming a regular top 10 in the Hard enduros. Lets all hope for a speedy recovery and that he can get back to the top
  7. Good stuff boys. Wish I was out there again watching you guys tackle those hills
  8. Great write up Rally510. I heard that Tim Coleman was badly injured but in a stable condition. Hope all the best for him
  9. Did he have any suggestions as to why it happens??? Starting in gear lots?
  10. Yeah they aren't cheap, but it did fix it. I think you can get spark plugs for under $20 even though they were over $50 on the parts fiche

    Who is the fox hunter? Spotted at Queenscliff Harbour after lunch today
  12. I've got a Force bashplate pipe combo sitting in the shed not being used that came off my 250...... I run a B&B bashplate exhaust combo. Yeah mine have lots of scratches and wear on the skid plate and has taken plenty of big hits. I wouldn't be without one for the types of obstacles I attempt to ride
  13. I've ran the 1 Motow for maybe 7 years or more. Its good and does the job. I got lights and a new bike rack number plate with every new car. If I had to buy another I would buy the rack n roll as they are a serious bit of kit but the Motow has never let me down and its done some 4wd bike recoveries as well. It is for Jeeps anyway!
  14. You can't go past Starglen Lodge for what your looking for. Exactly what 2T4ME said. I have had my fun there over the years (read the annual weekender reports!) now I get to have fun with my kids and actually ride with them. My kids mostly ride at Ride Park at Parwan as Cluffie mentioned. The tracks are great to learn on. 2 levels of begginers tracks but then you can move over to the bigger tracks as they evolve in a very large space with medical facilities on site too (that hopefully you will never need but its nice to know its there).
