  1. Maybe you could sell your house. Homeless people still need their eyes protected when they ride. Seriously Daz, they are yours! My missus bought me some not long ago so these would be spares. Better off protecting some homeless families father so he can keep his eyes in good condition! Maybe best not to sell the house just yet and use these for now..... Merry Christmas mate. P.S. I just noticed that was your 666 message. Hope that was really you talking.......
  2. Daz. just noticed. The goggles are yours mate. Next ride I see you on, Ill bring em along.
  3. Jeepers Daniel, you did hold that pain back very well. When we caught up with you, you were getting up and back into it without showing any sign of pain.... That's a riding trophy if I ever sore one (did you see what I done there?). Probably best you don't show the missus as she will say sell the stupid bike.....
  4. I have never seen so many stacks on one ride, and a level 2 ride at that! Well done to all for getting out there today. Lucky the heat did not get to Tallarook while we were there so it ended up a pretty comfortable ride. I did consider pulling out with the expected temp of 35 but am very glad that I did not. A bit dusty, but hanging back a bit helped that. I have no interest in throttling into a cloud of dust where I can't see the ground, I may have had those hidden surprises occur once too often! Was good to see many new faces today, it certainly is good to put a face to a name that you keep hearing. Also good to see and catch up with the faces I already know. The ride flowed really well and there were some nice hills to spike up the "fun/challenge/fear/learning curve" (pick witch one suites you). Also plenty of logs and rocks because after all, it is Tallarook. Thanks to lead, organisers, cooks, BBQ bringers, food suppliers, gift givers, other sweep and riderZ. I had a great day. Until next time, get lots of seat time and stay upright. Have a great Christmas and a biking new year. Love you long time. Cheers n beers, Brian.

    "Spin Hill" - Spring hill 14 Jul

    Big thanks to Fab for posting this ride. I hadn't been on the bike for 11 weeks so really needed to get out. White crispy ground was in my view the whole drive and I could see that it was going to be cool and slippery. Slippery is un understatement as every single log, root, rock were there waiting to attack its prey, waiting for it's next meal. Spring Hill swallowed my stand spring about half way through, then it dawned on me where we were. I should have known to bring a spare to feed to the hungry "spring hill". Big thanks to Cujo for sweeping up our mess and big thanks to centralVic for "unrecoverable erroring" our mess. From all the Fab rides I have been on, this was my pic. Good group, nice tracks. Cheers n beers, Brian. Love you long time.

    I guess it felt even worse when you were offering me fuel and I was telling you this is my all time favourite. Imagine how much worse it would have felt if I took your fuel as well

    Thanks Matt for posting up what turned out to be my favourite ride ever. Now I did see Marko's lip quiver when I mentioned that this was my favourite ride, but other that Matt leading, Marko did as well so no need for any Quiver Marko, you were apart of it. Thanks Matt (and Marko) for leading and to Browny and crusty for sweeping. I was afraid that I would not have enough fuel and Matt indicated that he would send me home before my fuel time was up. I did decide to carry a litre and a half so I got a little bit more riding time. Unfortunately, the extra fuel I carried was enough to get me to the furthest away from the cars that we were going to be. In good dirtriderZ spirit, I started to get offers of fuel from some of the guys which took all my concerns away. I'm so glad that I went and was lead around some of the best tracks I have ever seen. We concurred many hills, awesome flowing tracks and the pace was good. Once I hit reserve (my bike did too), I ran out of water and it wasn't long before some hand cramps started to occur. Fixxy and I headed back to the cars and 70km all up with the extra fuel I carried, Browny turned up 20 minutes later while the rest went exploring. I am envious. envious of all the guys having a bikes that can go the distance and envious of the guys that can just keep going. Great day, great tracks, and a great bunch. Till next time, Love you long time. Cheers n beers, Brian.

    Marko's Marauders Maul Spring Hill 14/4

    Thanks Marko for the lead around Spring hill and Cujo for sweeping up our mess. What a great piece of bush that is. I am definitely returning, maybe when the tracks are not flowing like rivers. I also considered pulling out but am so glad that I didn't. The pace was good and the tracks were prime with grip slowly decreasing as the day went on. One hill had 4 of the 6 struggling with pushes and pulls required. It help every one get warm! No issues through the day ........... until I hit reserve at 50km, then I was forced to chuck in the towel for the day and 2 followed me back to the cars. I really have to fix that thirsty bike issue! The day started out dry, a bit of drizzle after half an hour, then rain, then heavier rain, then it got heavier as I was attempting to pack up, it bucketed down. Great to see a couple of new faces and see some familiar ones. Good group, good tracks, what more could you ask for. Till next time, Love you long time. Cheers n beers, Brian.

    Dakota's Cobaw 3+ (+ what, a million)

    ?? Is that legit Yes it is.

    Dakota's Cobaw 3+ (+ what, a million)

    This is a graph of the level of excitement of the ride today. Just encase you needed proof of how awesome the day was......
  13. Wow, I mean OW, just kidding I really mean WOW, I'm not kidding it's OW, but in a WOW way. Thanks Dakota for the lead around Cobaw. It is definitely my favourite forest. I forgot how fit you need to be to (1) do Cobaw and (2) follow Dakota. Although I think he has increased the difficulty of Cobaw with out telling anyone. Did I mention WOW, friggin amazing place. One dude had to straighten his brake lever several times. Another dude had his chain going on the out side of his chain guide (could you imagine). Another dude fell off more time in the first hour than I have ever seen. One or more of those dudes may or may not be me........ :-) I need an emoji with red cheeks. A big thanks to sweeps for sweeping up after us, I mean me. Tiny had an early off and had to depart. You can't do that Tiny, you're my tow truck and ambulance............ I started cramping after 35-ish KM and decided that I was going to pull a sicky and not be there for the remainder of the ride. Once the cramps start, you just can't control the bike. If any of you know Cobaw, that is the wrong place to not be in control. Have I mentioned OW. Great to meet some familiar faces and see some new as well. All good riders, I can't believe how fit you all are. Mental note, have to be fit for Cobaw. Or will Cobaw will make me fitter. Oh the Cobaw paradox Thanks all for a great (half) day. One more ..... WOW Cheers n beers, love you long time, Brian.

    Training Day at Wombat

    Thanks Fab for sharing some stuff that you have learnt from the pro him self and also for leading us around some awesome tracks in Wombat. It's sometimes good to back off the pace and work on technique, I probably should do that more often. Unfortunately due to the "Chinese Whispers" (Birch to Fab to me to .....) my advise to people will be a totally obscured and incorrect but hilarious to watch. Perfect weather and conditions with plenty of grip. Thanks to Daniel and Fab for sharing sweep. WTF you say, Fab was lead? Also thanks to the camera crew (CV) that were ready to capture any note worthy events and show our moments. Great to meet some new faces and collect a potential new member along the way. Good day, good group, good weather, what more could a Dirtrider ask for on a Satdy. Cheers n beer, Brian.
