    Bear in the Swamp - 21 Jul 2018

    great ride today fellas and nice to meet new member andrew(good rider too !) It's not often bear takes a tumble and to catch it on video made it really special I was riding fairly well, or so i thought, saw a nice little downhill jump and thought i'd give it a go. clipped a low branch then i was well out of control, bike going everywhere and me in a different direction. Hit the ground pretty hard and just lay there for a while trying to assess the damage. marko and trailz turned up and give me a hand and then started asking me all sorts of questions about what what went in in the hotel room last night under the pretense that they were checking me for concussion ? hmmm Got a sore ankle, elbow, shoulder and hip but most of the damage was to the ego.

    "Spin Hill" - Spring hill 14 Jul

    Afraid so. There was an unrecoverable technical error while I was having a beer or 6

    "Spin Hill" - Spring hill 14 Jul

    i'm sorry to say that i screwed up and there is no video...no, marko didn't slip me $20.00 to "lose it". Due to the lack of video evidence i have no choice but to say that everyone rode well, even marko thanks Fab for putting it on and cujo for laughing at all the "helpful" comments i made about other riders, i'm sure they made some about me

    I'm done for the conspiracy theory, don't think Lindon could pull it off on his own

    great ride yesterday !. thanks bear for putting it on, lindon for sweeping and don for the beer. bbq was also great. Always loved riding mt avoca and yesterday was the first time i had ridden up that last snotty hill, in the past i have only ever gone down it. I've ridden with some of you blokes in the past on level 2 rides and yesterday i was struck by the improvement in skill level you guys demonstrated, i'm thinking you need to come to chewton with me. The other thing i learned was not to follow cobraone down a hill, no offence mate but you picked some dreadful lines, i'm lucky still to be here! The first time i was seperated from the group I put that down to bad luck or me not paying attention but when it happened a second time i did start to feel a bit unloved. I can't believe you guys stopped and fixed a tyre without realising i wasn't there WTF !. of course it's not uncommon in groups above 10, something to do with dirtbikers counting ability. e.g. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,..duh..i dunno...lots? if i did a pivot turn then it was intentional unless there is video evidence to the contrary looking forward to the next one

    Dustys Dissa what a Pissa

    and don't forget about me dazz, i'm in my late fifties and had to bail out early on a couple of rides this year. I now tend to pick my rides a bit more carefully and try to pace myself.

    Bears Satdy Tallarook ride

    I did start with s fuel tank. Normally I would get at least 80k in those conditions so I'm a bit surprised I went on reserve.

    Bears Satdy Tallarook ride

    thanks to: bear for putting it on, fab for sweeping and trailz for being on time. It was great to get out to tallarook, always love riding there. I really enjoyed watching riders tackling stuff that sometimes causes a bit of grief. And yeah, i was feeling pretty smug riding up that long hill, second gear, best line(the middle one) when all of a sudden, cough, splurt, (the bike, not me). Beta had run out of fuel, must have been the dazzmx escort to the carpark that did it. Now i find myself stopped in the middle of the road with riders attempting to go around me, most of them did but having lost their line and momentum they started falling of in front of me, i still laughed at them even though it was my fault . looking forward to some vids !
