  1. Get well soon Mick. It is always bad to hear that kind of news. It sounds as though you have been looked after as well as I was a little while ago. What goes around comes around. DirtriderZ are awesome. PS. Where should I send the flowers?
  2. How good was that? Don’t know how anyone could call it Disappointment. Being cold and wet I wasn’t sure I would get out but I was planning to ride Kinglake on my own if it wasn’t raining in the morning. Didn’t want to post up because I didn’t want to muck anymore around if I didn’t go. When 99 percent posted Dissa looking for a buddy I said a tentative yes. So glad I did. On arrival Hussaberg 501 was there 99 percent followed me in. Bushy was already out on the pegs. He came back to greet us and he then took the lead with his local knowledge. The tracks were all level 2 in the dry and for me
  3. Howzat for a pumpkin patch?
  4. On ya chix. Taylor 715 loves the puddles but doesn’t like wet feet. Feet up under the handlebars and away she goes. Always fun to watch. I was at Dissa today and yes there was a lot of water around and some slippery sticks but I was surprised by the amount of traction especially with the concern I had with my back tyre when I looked at it last night.
  5. Thanks Kelly for getting the ride happening and Trails for leading. Been looking forward to riding Whipsticks and the stars finally aligned. After a bit of a sleep in I thought I would be late. Still got there before Trails so all good. I pulled up beside Matt and found him trying to remove his stuck butt plug. Had a look up his exhaust and saw it about 3 inches in. Put my finger in for a feel but only pushed it in further. A bit of back pressure wouldn’t blow it out either. Got my tools out for surgery. Exhaust off and Ruger to the rescue with some yellow tongue to push through Matt’s exhaust

  8. Pretty much all has been said. Spot on level grading. I admit I was a little anxious when I put my name down. Cruiser delivered in spades with interesting tracks that in my opinion never went above the ride grading. A little rain would've been a different ride. It was a privilege to ride with the talented group that turned out. Most were way above the posted level but all were happy to wait for the less talented and rip past like I was standing still. It always amazes me how fast & smooth you blokes are over terrain that belts me around at much less speed. I know momentum is king but how
  9. Don’t stay new for long do they?
  10. Well I think it's all been said in words & pics what a great weekend it was. Huge thanks to everyone from Harry the host on Friday night to everyone that turned up with a well maintained bike. Special mention to Sandra & Joe who without your support as has been said this wouldn't be possible. Captain Kenny your knowledge of the area is awesome & the 2 lead riders worked well to keep the mob flowing. Good job Harry. Arien & Stinky thanks for bringing up the rear. It must've been a slow & cruisy ride for you due to the lack of carnage & issues through the pack. As this wa
  11. Thanks for the input PJ. I did ride a TPI a few months ago along with a Sherco 300 4t. The Kato was impressive for the way it went but the Sherco felt easier to ride. I rode a Sherco which I considered buying a week before I attended a Beta demo day. I was thinking of a x trainer until I rode one after a 200 rr then I rode the 300. I thought the rr was as easy to use as the Sherco and performed very similar to the KTM. It would be interesting to swap and ride each back to back. Merry Xmas. Catch ya on a ride soon.
  12. Welcome to dirtriderZ Scott. I'll keep an eye out for your 530 big banger on Saturday. Looking forward to meeting you. Macca
  13. It’s here. I’m loving it. Haven’t been far on it yet. Chased the kids around a paddock on a crf230 that I picked up on Saturday as well as mine. Once they were confident I took them on some level 1 trail. Did a couple of km st while the kids waited. So much easier to pop the wheel over a log and steers so much better than the husky. Feels like a mountain bike between my legs. I think I’m going to get used to it real quick. Looking forward to Tallarook next weekend.
  14. I thought they would’ve been onto me trying to sell after the demo day but I haven’t heard a thing. The demo worked for me. I was seriously considering a x trainer but after riding it and the RR back to back it was a no brainer. I thought about the race but decided I wouldn’t be good enough to use the better forks. Maybe one day but not now.
