  1. First of. Thanks to everyone who had a hand into organizing such a great weekend. I needed a boost of confidence due to my dismal ride on grand final ride. Coming to terms with some body recover period.and the lack of getting to know the yz450fx. This was just what i needed. I arrived Friday arvo. Set up camp. Opened the bottle of jack. Sat a relaxed. Frank got the fire going. Im not much of a conversationalist but i found myself giggling at the stories that were spun by the fire. I pulled the pin on Saturday arvo ride.( Lets not bore you). Ready to join in the evenings festivities . However got a text message. bro riding tomorrow. Simple those three words (harley poeple will understand)made me pack up early and head home for the next days adventure. Thanks andy for the vid. Thanks everyone had a great time. Cheers colin l
  2. Hi all. Thanks so much for holding this event. I been off the bike for sometime with mechanical issues of my own.. so first time back with a group. As the ride went on I realised bike fitness and the lack of use with my new bike.. I struggled and suffered. Dropped my bike a few times. But yet I had a great time. I my self felt slow but no one complained. And words of encouragement was much appreciated. Thanks guys.. thanks coggs. thanks tail riders. Thanks . See you at beechworth. Cheers colinl.
  3. Looks a great ride and time was had. So sorry i missed it. I was so looking forward to it. Even deciding not to show my harley. But things didn't work out for me. Please hold another one soon dg .
  4. Thanks trailz for posting this ride and walkahz for tail duties all day. I had a great day with my third attempt at whipsticks. I was chuffed to complete the day. As always a great bunch of blokes to ride with. Had a bit of a giggle when dazrmx sliding stop beside me and made just enough contact for me to lose my footing and slowly I fell to the ground. Almost abbott and costello style.. Thanks colinl.
  5. . Thanks so much to trailz for organizing the ride.thanks so much bear for returning me back to the cars.as i pulled out of the ride early due to starting and running issues of my bike.as i didn't want to ruin the day for others..yesterday i went to the shed to either repair my bike or get another one. Pulled the plug.black as the ace of spades.ready to resit the clip on the needle. Ah embarrassing moment. And Dont tell anyone. Choke lever out. Na couldn't have.(i was thinking). In with the choke.started right up.rode around my place for 30 minutes. Not a issue. Doh. Anyway thanks again.

    Whipsticks, my first ride at whipsticks, what a day of fun, laughter mayhem and what the.... after my bike falling of the trailer I should have gone home then. Then both halla and mickgeelong having to kick start their steeds due to battery issues, after the first hill that I successfully made a third of the way up, then the kicking started. I don't have a button you see. finally she starts unfortunately I spent most of the day kicking, kicking, kicking, really must say that not one crook word was spoken and no one even thought of offering me a match. Second loop benby joins us. Off we go heading along smoothly and then a grinding stop, halla decides to take his bike for a swim, benby jumps into action. It's right fellas. I know what to do, I saw it on youtube. That had to be the line of the day. So in short a lot of kick starting, one drowning, one off, one fowled plug but in my view a lot of fun was had as well. Although there was only four of us, I would definitely ride with them again. Thanks for a great and patient day fellas, bike is in the shop tomorrrow. cheers colinl
  8. my bike hates normal plugs for some reason.i use the laser iridium.$26.50 a plug.my bike is happy. have asked my bike shop the question, reply was, thats weird,
  9. hi, ive recently purshased a 2008 crf450r. done the usal.changed the plug,fluids ect. went out for a ride on sunday. as i was cruising around it had a slight miss,however riding with a bit of pace it was fine. infact scary fine,front wheel lofting fine, my question is the miss at slow speeds normal due to it being a r model.set the plug gap wrong,or just done something when i did the minor service. thanks colin.
