  1. Bike upgrade

    I've decided in the next few months to upgrade my leaners bike, Honda CRF230F, I've ridden this bike for 3 years and I've outgrown it. On rides I have ridden; Yamaha WR250F, KTM 350 EXC-F, KTM 450 EXC, all of which has made my choice harder! I've been looking at the following bikes; Honda CRF250/450X, Yamaha WR250/450F, KTM 250/450 EXC. Just wondering if anyone has any pro's / con's about these bikes, or if I should add something else to the mix. Unfortunately I won't be purchasing brand new, and my budget is around 4-6k. And should I be worried if bike's I'm looking at have top-end/bottom-end rebuilds? And roughly how many km's can a bike do before a top/bottom end needs a rebuild? I don't ride MX tracks, so happy to stick with an Endro bike.

    I ended up getting a Honda CRF230F, tried the WR250 and I did not feel confident at all... felt like a giant! I have been out on a few rides, so once I feel confident on my bike, Ill try the larger bike and see how I feel and might upgrade from there.

  6. Tool Carry Kit

    Hi, I've only been riding dirt bikes since March this year, so I'm still relatively new to this and getting to know the basics. I've started a tool collection, however I want to know what other people carry so I can add to my collection. So far I have a few different size spanners, screw driver, alumin keys and for parts I have a spark plug, and a clutch lever (so far I have bent 2!!) Any help is great! Thanks!

    Hi, I'm Andrew from Geelong. I have been riding since March this year, and I own Honda CRF230F. I have ridden at Elaine, Anglesea and around Pyrenees Ranges. I would consider myself a Level 2 rider. Just looking for more like-minded people to go out with on the weekends. Andrew

  9. Safety Gear

    Hi guys, I recently purchased a Honda CRF230F to learn how to ride a motorbike, and use it as a trail bike for sometime until I feel the need to get a bigger toy! The bike is currently undergoing a major service, just to make sure everything is in working order (I have received ALOT of help doing this). As a newbie, what sort of safety gear would this community recommend? I know the basic stuff such as, boots, helmet, goggles, gloves, and knee guards but what else would else you recommend? When I'm more confident I wont be thrashing around the bush, (I'm a slow ass driver on the roads) I will be motoring along at my own pace, if this helps recommending gear. Thanks!
  10. Novice Rider

    Hi all, Over the Easter weekend this year I learnt how to ride a dirt bike and change gears, big woop for me (maybe not for all you lot!). I've slept many nights on the idea of getting into the sport, and the idea hasn't worn off, it was bloody fun! Is there a recommend bike for newcomers? My girlfriends family primary rides in the bush, so I'll be following them down this path. I'm 6 FT and weigh in around 80kgs. I'll most likely be looking at a used bike between 2010-2012 as I'll most likely drop/scratch and damage it a little bit as ill fine tune my riding! Any help is much appreciated!
