  1. Kmatts grouse Greendale

    Great day out. Thanks to all involved. Had to bail a little early... i left my fuel cap off after filling up at the servo this morning.... wasnt playing with a full tank!! Great photos as usual Marko.
  2. Riders being members on dirtriderZ rides

    Im happy to be corrected if wrong, but i dont remember when initially joining the forum, signing any waivers to the rights of a ride that i may post up. I would've thought the owner of that ride is actuallly the person who posted it and will be leading it, not an online sharing platform. Fair enough if you want to dictate that the ride post must contain certain information in regards to location, kms etc, but who is to attend that ride is totally up to the person leading. Its a dangerous precedent to set. DirtriderZ might be a great place for people to meet and organise rides, but DirtriderZ is not a governing body on how people meet and who they ride with.

    Well done you 2. An inspiration to us all. Will be cheering you on from the comfort of my lounge

    Riding it weekly!! Dont let the heat stop you!! Although i had a whoopsy last week resulting in 8 stitches and a few weeks off. Good time to do chain, sprockets, tyres and a few other little bits. Still loving the 2018 Beta 300, although any new model bike these days is better than the last.

  6. Property Investment

    Its hard to type sarcasm.... Pretty happy with our choice. Tenanted from day 1, brand new with good depreciation. Good capital appreciation.
  7. Property Investment

  9. Wildwood is next Sunday (29 Oct)

    It was a hot dusty day out there at Wildwood sunday. Was great to put yourself out there and challenge yourself in the sport that we all love. We are always looking for harder stuff to ride and it doesnt get much harder than this. Each obstacle on its own is not all that difficult. But as soon as you combine a few of these things in a row, all of a sudden arm pump kicks in, the body wears out and the mind follows suit. What was 50 hard obstacles now becomes one all mighty test. You will drop your bike and things you shouldnt, and then get stuck on things that if in the bush you wouldnt think twice. A few new obstacles in the prologue area were interesting!! Also a few new hills out the back, plus some old ones that have become quite difficult. I went better than i did last year which is all i can ask for. It really is a personal race, as you are well aware that there are no trophies that will be making it home...except for the finishers medallion of course, or if your Buzz..... I didnt break anything on bike or body, but my brand new tyre is pretty much cactus. It really is a hard place to choose the right tyre for all situations- wet rocks, dry rocks, loose grassy hills, ball bearing type dirt hills. Although if youve seen the pictures floating around the internet of Pol Tarres tyre after the race you will merely read this as excuses!! he completed the last 2 laps on pretty much a bald knobs!! If your into bikes, and love the hard stuff, give it a crack. if not, get along and support local motorsport. Without fans these events just fade away. We all sit here admiring Romaniacs, Erzberg and the big overseas events. Here is one on our doorstep to watch...and you get up real close to the action too. Out of the 144 Riders entered: 56 BUZZ 80 Brownballs 85 Mevstar 93 Hilltop 124 Kage apologies if i missed anyone.

    I must say that im really glad that i invited myself onto this great little ride. Although it did take me a little while to get back in with the tight group after their previous night. I just happened to be staying in Wye River with Family and Friends, so took my bike along to join the boys for a half day session on the Saturday. Friday night we arrived in Wye River, had dinner with the Family and then took off up to RatFinke's house to say hello to the crew. Said our hellos, got the tour and in no time Dr Riles was hard at it working his magic on a KTM300 running the finest 2016 Vintage Premium Unleaded. Said our goodbyes and i returned to my Gang. It wasnt until the next morning i realise that as soon as my taillights had cleared the horizon, out came the Penfolds Grange, Henshke Hill of Grace and every other top 10 Red wine featured on James Hallidays Best Wines of the World List while i returned to the caravan park to sip on leftover Woodstock Bourbons and Cheezels. Right...I see how this Works!! No doubt that come Saturday morning Cujo and Faultline were dished up Caviar on Brioche Toast whilst Riles and Kmatts devoured their Morton Bay Bug Mousse listening to the sweet tunes of Norah Jones played live in the lounge room!! Anyhow... i arrive at RatFinkes Saturday morning at the arranged time and we take off into the wilds of some magnificent Private Property to sample some of the best stuff that the region has to offer. Great singles, few challenging hills, rivers, logs and all of the good stuff dirt bike riders enjoy. Had a random stick attempt to enter my arm but my pasty anglo skin wouldn't allow it! Regret not being able to continue on with the Boys as i had to return to my weekend away. Will be back for sure. Loving my new bike with no issues to report there. Hopefully i contributed enough to the ride to allowed to ride amongst the finest at some point in the future.
