  1. Just a heads up fellow riderz that the FFM are planning to burn off this year at Mt Disappointment. You can have a look on their website at the localised areas but I was up there yesterday (Sunday) and they are getting prepped to do the area around Sheils, South Mtn, Dry creek and Patton's tracks. This area is on the map of planned burns but there isn't a date, it's just got 2021. I know this area is pretty popular for riding so if you're thinking about posting up a ride there keep this in mind, if I get any exact dates for when it's going to happen I'll post back up here.
  2. Usually a ride report goes something like thanks to lead and sweep, how the tracks were, maybe a comment on the weather but this "event" was so much more than just a ride. Personally I'm a bit humbled to have had the opportunity to assist by leading one of the rides. Dirt biking is a sport that I have loved to do since childhood and giving back by taking a group of like minded riderz on a bit of a trek through the bush is something that I find almost therapeutic for my own mental state. For me riding goes hand in hand with keeping the balance of work/life routine and having an escape from
  3. Another great ride and camping weekend with an awesome bunch of riderZ. Driving up there Sat morning I was following a car with a WR in trailer thinking "I wonder if this guy is part of our group". This was way over at Hurstbridge, they could've been going anywhere for a ride. Turned out it was MarkC, what a coincidence. Then going through the Black Spur, came across a ute with a bike on board. I must've looked like I was on a mission cause he pulled over and let me through. Another coincidence, this time it was Raffy. Got out to Frenchman's early, said g'day to quite a few familiar faces
  4. Can't have the A team without Murdoch. A massive thanks to a dedicated bloke for leading another epic NYE ride. Putting on the BBQ and beers afterward just topped it off perfectly, what a legend. From only 5 minutes in and being on the only 4T in slippery tree root, log infested Dissa jungle I was feeling I'd brought a knife to gunfight. Pushed through track 1 then wisely sat out track 2 - when the group of top guns emerged almost an hour later and had only traveled a bit over a km, felt it was a good choice. The rest of the ride was pretty cruisey for a small bunch of us, did a
  5. Merry Christmas riderz, hope you all have a great day.
  6. If you want a good map of 'The Pines' check out Rooftop's Lake Eildon boating map.This map shows all of the main tracks of the area. Also @ohmygewdis a bit of a guru of the place so take his advice about the difficulty level of some of the tracks up there. Even the 4wd tracks can get pretty tricky for a rider with not a lot of experience. But in saying that there are some tracks - Highett Ridge / Stillmans that go for ages and aren't super hard but you will need to be able to handle a lot of erosion mounds and up and down decent hill climbs
  7. That sums it up perfectly, but what a great day. Firstly I want to thank all of the riderZ for making my day a very easy one. For such a large group we only had a couple of minor stops, everyone rode exceptionally well in conditions that tested the limits of visibility. Next shout out is to @angelena, @2t4me, @Bear @Toby_ @Yates and my wingman, loose Bruce @brucektmguy for all the organizing and efforts that go into putting an 'event' (bigger than just a ride) like this together. Thanks to the sweep on the L1 ride too. Cruising around at the back was actually alright. Bruce kept
  8. Started putting it back together, new swingarm and linkage bearings, new head stem bearings. Once it's finished gunna sell it, need to make some room for the next bike
  9. Started with 'might just grease the swingarm' on the YZ 250. One thing led to another so now it's getting a nice clean up.
  10. I'll play Next challenge - For metro Melb, a new pic of your bike anywhere in the bush, Hopefully there's some lucky people that can ride within 25K from home.
  11. I read that due to some parts availability issues (current worldwide covid issues) that some bikes are being delivered with blue rims, some with black. Throw a deposit down mate, you might be lucky and get a blue rimmed bike......
  12. Was talking about this yesterday cruiser. In the big picture the price difference probably doesn't suggest it is, unless the KYB suspension and an FMF muffler warrants the extra 1500 bucks or so. For slower more technical riding WP does a sufficient enough job and the money saved can be spent on protective gear. The rest of the factory upgrades are mostly cosmetic and a Galfer solid rear brake disc. Everything else is standard on the racing.
  13. Like the vid @BenG "you can take the 150" LOL @buzz44 suits you mate, will be seeing more blue bikes out there I think. C'mon @Bubalu you know you want one. Loving my 300SEF,-R just does what I want it to do. @cluffie, Mines not a 2T but I ran stock WP for about 60 hrs before getting the cone valve mod. TBH when stock it took a bit of work mucking around with clickers to get an ok feel and never felt perfect, just a reasonable compromise. After the mod it seems easier to get it nicer but still think it's not a plush as some of the kato's I've ridden.
  14. Got me sucked in @brucektmguy. By the end I was expecting "Go Collingwood" ha ha ha ha ha
