  3. Tallarook - 2017 Xmas ride

    Up early and at the unload area by 7:30 with only one other there and a choice of parking spots. A steady stream of riders started arriving and it was good catching up with some of the crew I have ridden with previously and meeting some of the other members from the forum. After a quick briefing we were off with Egg leading us on a merry journey around parts of Tallarook I haven't been to before (not that I've been to many parts of Tallarook). A good mix of tracks kept the ride interesting and it was good seeing the more experienced riders fly past me on the downhills. This gave me confidence to speed up a little until a couple of pucker moments had me reassessing my abilities. 4 people on the corners gave everyone a chance to have a chat and the ride seemed to flow okay for such a large group. Thanks to Egg for organising and leading, Arbo and Bruce for sweep duties and Noodles and Macca for culinary duties after the ride. A great job done by all. Merry xmas (or happy holidays, whichever is politically correct these days) and a happy New Year to you all. Be safe over the silly season
  4. Being non mechanically minded, my understanding of the problem is the stator bolts sheared off and decided to bounce around the flywheel and starter clutch gear. Mechanic said I may get away with just a new stator so thats where we are starting.
  5. The "Is How It Is" Thread

    Well put Geoffro, and you are right in praising the efforts of the whole Mod/Admin group. During my time on the forum, I have yet to have one of the admin team come to my house and force me to log on to the forum, I have that choice myself. The rules of the forum are there for all to see and are not difficult to understand. If I don't agree with how the forum is being run, I will cease to use it Keep up the good work
  6. Well put a new battery in and still got the same response from the starter motor. Its due for someone with more knowledge than me to do some work on it, so into the workshop it goes.

    Thanks for putting on the ride and leading Lockheed. Your right when you say the ride flowed well, seemed to only be on a corner for a matter of minutes. Thanks to the sweeps !Thumper and IanM, it was a dusty ride at the back of the pack. Nice mix of tracks to keep the ride interesting, and being my first time out that side, it certainly won't be my last. Until next time
  8. I put a new spark plug in before the ride . I will try a new battery before I get into the nitty grit's.
  9. Hi all, Went on a ride today and after pulling up and stopping the engine for about 5 minutes, I could not start the bike again with the e start or kick start. E start sounded like it was just spinning the starter and not engaging and the kick start would not budge. Roll started the bike and rode back to the cars. Tried the E start again and it still wouldn't start but I could now engage the kick start, but it felt like it was never going to start. Before pulling the starter apart and scratching my head, anyone heard of this happening and if so have a fix?

    Welcome to the forum Abdul, I may just see you around.

    Antmor asked and Bear delivered. 10 of us set of for a cruisey? (not really a word according to the thesaurus, but we'll go with it anyway) Sunday ride around Tallarook. Bear led us around a variety of tracks and kept it to the promised level 2 - 2+ experience, and got to experience the great views from the look out. Not to many gumby moments by the crew, which is always a good thing and no injuries. An uncooperative Husky that periodically refused to start, giving Odie a few headaches, and a lack of brake fluid on one of the other bikes had some pucker moments happening with no front brakes, until KennyB used some scientific way of syphoning fluid from some donor bikes to rectify the problem. Thanks to bear for leading and Baz450 for sweep duties. Thanks also to the rest of the gang, its always good to ride with people out to enjoy themselves. Until next time
  12. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Even worse, people who don't stop at a roundabout thinking the law says you have to give way to the right a roundabout, so go charging straight at your car with the horn blaring
  13. aventful lal lal .

    Thanks Cobraone for organising and leading and thanks to TB rider for sweeping. I was behind Dannox when he and his bike decided to explore unridden parts of Lal Lal and was quite impressed in his ability to let go of bike and leap for the edge of the hole....Hope the leg comes good soon. Good mix of tracks on the day and I did manage to get to the top of carnage hill....with some steadying from Bear and after launching the bike into a tree Lal Lal does offer some more treacherous obstacles after some rain and would love to have continued on after carnage hill, but with 7 creek crossings to complete after the hill, I believe we may of drowned a bike or two completing the ride. Dazz, I was one of the riders that appreciated your help on the log and kept going, but did position myself at the next obstacle to assist. Once again a great bunch of blokes (yet to go on a Dirtriderz ride and not enjoy the company), and the weather gods looked after us for the day. Quick bevy and a chat at the pub and the day was complete. Until next time
