  1. What a ride with the new king of Tallarook the NASTY, great job leading the ride buddy and I cant believe how good was the loop you put together. All up 68km`s, 10 riders and you had more to show us but was getting late so everyone was ready to go back to cars, next time we can do the rest as I cant wait to go back there again. Also great group of riders to ride with, I joined late Friday night as I was not supposed to ride Saturday but when I saw the group of riders coming, the lead rider and Tallarook I could not resist, what can be more important then riding. What Sabo said why dont we ride here more often its great riding here and pretty sure everyone else enjoyed the ride. Nasty warmed us up in first 10 min going up the very rocky hard steep slippery hill where we all seen some carnage, push and pulling, the rope come out it was all hands on. We all made it up and straight back into some tight fun tracks, little wet logs on the angle were everywhere, slippery rocks but still happy with the traction. Another big hill and this is were we lost the new member as he lost all his energy on the rocky tracks and hills so decided to go back to the cars but at least now he knows what level 3 is. Next was the longest downhill in Tallarook were we seen two riders coming up, not sure about going up that hill but wouldn't mind trying it one day, Nasty maybe we can do this loop in reverse one day. Favorite part of the day was three 4t 250 chasing/racing each other trough some tight wet tracks, that was fun boys. So many great tracks out there, hills, lookouts so hopefully another ride coming soon at Tallarook with Nasty leading, lets not forget the all day sweep Cujo, thanks buddy. Few photos from the ride:
  2. Another great Dissa ride with 2t4me, been on few rides where Dusty leads the ride at Dissa and always enjoy it. Great group of riders and perfect conditions, the best part of the day for me was the swamp hill where I made it up in first attempt following Nastys directions what lane to take, felt that good that I went down and done it again. Not that lucky on the third gear hill, went up that hill few times before with no problems most of the times but this time the line I usually take was different with rocky step up and rutted, so back down and follow again Nastys lane, few attempts and I was up. Was great to watch Ben ride up and down the hills all day while the rest of us were happy to do it once then rest. Thanks Dusty for organizing the ride and great riding with the rest of the boys, few photos:
  3. My first trip to Tassie and have to say best riding I ever done, 4 days of riding best tracks with great crew, fun didn't stop from the time you wake up till the bed time, was just unforgettable trip. Huge thanks to @Scottland for organizing this ride, accommodation and the boat trip to Tassie, also have to say big thanks to this forum for existing as without dirtriderz we would not meet and do this unforgettable trip. Anyone thinking of doing this trip in future just do it, in saying this make sure you go with a good crew as that makes the ride much more fun. Took heaps of photos and videos but instead of posting all the photos separately I created the video so enjoy dirtriderz.
  4. Great job leading big group @ohmygewd , only half a day for me on Saturday but that was enough for me as I was feeling it from Gypsy`s Friday ride. Thanks for organizing this ride and hopefully we can do it again one day, few photos from the ride:
  5. Chainsaw battle between @Gypsy501 and @riles , fun camping
  6. Third time at Goughs Bay and definitely one of my favorite places to ride. Eight of us on the Friday level 3+ ride and what a great fast group of riders to ride with, trying to keep up with the boys was a big work out for me but after lunch and going sweep made my day riding more relaxing. Never ending downhills and uphills, tight tracks with logs, rocks and roots, play hills, the views, this ride had it all, loop around 90km. Thanks Gypsy for the great job you done leading this ride and letting me join your ride, perfect ride with only one puncture what was fixed in few minutes and riding for a great cause RCHGFA Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal. Short video from the ride:
  7. First ride after 8 or 9 weeks and what a day to be back on the bike, 10 degrees at 9am and rain for first hour or two, could not believe it is summer with the conditions we had yesterday. As promised when posted the ride we did have few extra breaks then normal and the pace was pretty relaxed, few play hills where I enjoyed watching Crusty, Crusty`s plus one and Chris going up some very steep tricky hills. I was happy with extra breaks as I definitely did need them, hopefully more rain coming before weekends so more riding. When I got on the bike after a long break (9 weeks is long for me) I realized how much I missed riding and how much fun I have while riding so hopefully plenty rides to come. Thanks boys for coming, great crew and see you all soon on the next one. SHORT VIDEO: [/url]
  8. Can you please next time make the ride report bit shorter, too much information to read [emoji3][emoji3][emoji3][emoji3]
  9. And a short vid of play hills:
  10. Five of us started this ride and three finished with no injury, two out of action for a while, not a happy ride. Started with some nice tight tracks and plenty of hills to play on, conditions little bit dusty but not to bad. Was all going great till the first injury, seeing someone badly hurt it takes the motivation to ride again but after getting the injured rider back to the cars we decided to continue as it was still early in a day. Lost my mojo to ride again so few mistakes while riding and just no motivation to ride and after two hours latter it happened again, another rider of the bike pinned between sharp rock and the bike with footpeg pushing in his leg. Another two back to the cars while me and Gypsy continued to ride as I could not say no to Gypsys offer of showing me some interesting tracks and a nice hill. Glad I decided to continue to ride as I did get some of my mojo back and loved the flowing tracks and especially one hill we did, we did talk about that hill few times during the day and with the stuff happening the decision was not to go there. Looks like Gypsy couldn't help him self and he had to take me there without any warning, the name of the hill is C..t hill so I knew that would be something extreme, once I made it up he told me thats that hill with the big smile on his face, surprisingly I got up pretty good while earlier in the day with no mojo I struggled on much smaller/easier hills. Good loop and hopefully we can do it again but with no injuries, thanks Gypsy and speedy recovery for the riders. Only few photos:
  11. Thanks boys for coming, could not ask for a better group of riders, we moved pretty good and cant believe we finally finished the whole loop 73km`s. I would call this perfect conditions for riding, rain/showers for first hour in the morning what made the tracks more interesting, we started with 12 riders and finished with 5. Pretty sure everyone had fun on this ride as I could tell by the smiles on the faces and highlight of the day was Crusty`s comment when I told him at the corner to tell everyone to go straight up some very rocky track between two big rocks, his comment ``What are you doing to us, you trying to kill us`` I had heaps of fun on this ride, I love Cobaw my favorite place to ride, huge thanks to Dakota for showing me around Cobaw as 99% of the loop we done yesterday is what Dakota showed me, the only difference is I looped it bit different while trying to find his tracks. Good to see few riders I didnt see for a while and I know you hate me Toys but I still love you . Thanks for the photos Riles and good news you found your backpack. Hopefully we can do another ride at Cobaw soon, few photos:
  12. No good Russ, now I have to make sure not to get injured in next 12 to 16 weeks [emoji16]
