    Greendale - Nice for some

    Thanks Fab for organising and leading the ride. I had a lot of fun while it lasted with some fun slippery tracks keeping you on your toes....or your arse if you weren't paying attention. Richards bike launch on one of the hills we tried to conquer was something special, and I hope he had his camera on. My battery decided to die at the bottom of a short uphill start to another of Fabs tracks and being a supremely athletic specimen and unable to kick start the bloody thing, decided I would head back to the cars and not hold the others up. Spewing that I didn't get to the 3 sisters but that will have to wait for another day. Thanks to Fab, Mike, Richard and Chris for the day.
  3. Welcome Kris, I have an 05 Wr450 and have the same problem. Suspect its the speedo drive on the front wheel causing the problem. Ive plugged the speedo cable into a drill and the speedo worked but once plugged back in I got nothing. The drives are not that easy to come by and are quite costly also. I'm looking at a Trail Tech type speedo to replace the current one, or continue to ride not knowing how fast or far i've gone.

    E.O.I Toolangi explore ride

    Thanks for posting and leading the ride Simmo, had an absolute ball. The day started with the hour and a bit drive out to Glenburn where I met up with the others, Simmo, Thommo, Matto, Messo (renamed to fit in with the first two names). Simmo led the small procession to the unload spot and after a quick debrief, we were off. There are some great tracks around and Simmo certainly found some good ones for us. Some of the hills looked a bit daunting from the bottom, but like the big bad wolf we managed to huff and puff our way to the top. As Simmo has already said, I was waiting at the top of a hill for Thommo and Matt to come down an ugly rutted hill but there was nothing for about 10 minutes. I turned around and attempted to climb same ugly rutted hill. With no skill whatsoever, I made it half way and thought i now know my limitations, so turned around once again and went to find Simmo and Mess. Informed them of what was happening (or not happening) and we headed back as a group to find the others. Shortly after taking off, Thommo appears with the bad news that Matt had broken his handlebar and was miles back. we head of to get Matt and lo and behold there he was down the bottom of said ugly rutted hill. Buggered if I know how he got down unscathed. Managed to get the bars serviceable with a stick and some cable ties and we were of again heading for the road. Simmo offered directions back to the car for Matt and we continued on our way. A couple of more testy tracks and then Mess decided he had enough, so he was directed back to the cars (not very successfully apparently). A bit of an explore and another nasty rutted, root laden hill and we had enough for the day and headed back to the cars. One last trip into a bog hole where I managed to fill my boots with water 5 minutes from the cars and the day was done. Thanks again to all that rode today, I had a great time. See you on the trails soon.

    Wet Wombat L2 14/7

    Fresh start to the day......no it was friggin cold and the extremities only gold colder as we took off to start the ride. Got put on a corner by Andy and then............nothing, no bikes no noise no nothing. Sat, jumped, star jumped and finally warmed the hands on the exhaust until Andy come back and went looking for the rest of the riders. He was back shortly with a new sweep in Greasa and off we went again. Haven't started from this side of Wombat so it was all new to me and Andy and Barclay did a good job of mixing the trails up. Thanks to Andy for organising and leading the first part, Barclay for tagging in and leading for the remainder of the ride, the sweeps, Greasa, Andy and lastly Kavs. As always thanks to all the lads that turn up for a ride with a great attitude and make it a great day.

    Peak hour traffic

    Now look what you started Scotland....think it may have gone of topic and needs to be restarted in the "What pisses me off" thread

    Hide and seek @ Bears Pyrenees

    The day started at 6:00am for me and with the trailer loaded I was on the road at 6:35. Little bit of drizzle until I hit Ballarat and then it got heavier and colder.....what a fricken miserable place Ballarat is. Fortunately Avoca is not like Ballarat and the rain backed of to a mist then stopped. Off to the unload spot and 12, hold on 13, mate i've counted twice and I only got 12, hang on your right theres 12, took off led by Bear and Lindon as sweep. Straight into an uphill climb that helped me get warmed up followed by Bear leading us on a merry trip through some tighter tracks as well as up and down some hills. CV was unaccounted for and there were a lot of cornermen saying they definitely saw him go past them where they had stopped. Needless to say CV was found about 5k from where we realised he was unaccounted for, so some people may need their eyes checked. No injuries for the day and a new tyre makes a huge difference in the wet (go figure). Thanks to Bear for leading, Lindon for sweeping (only losing 1 rider in 100K's is not too bad), Lindon for the frozen snags, Don for the beers, Trailz for firing up the BBQ and everyone else for making it a great day. Happy Berfdy to Dazz also .

    Whipsticks Bear Style

    Good fun day out at Whipsticks today and as Gypsy stated, the ground was slippery. Managed to ignore the need for a new back tyre for another week and boy did I pay for it today. I ended up on my arse within the first 2 minutes of the ride, had a swim in a large puddle, knackered myself and rode with a clenched butt hole not knowing when I'd fall off again.......but had a ball doing it. It was good watching the lads have a crack at the play hills, with the hills coming up the victor even though Gypsy refused to be beaten. Thanks to Bear for organising and leading the ride, Gypsy and Hoff for sweep duties and everyone else for the day.

    Bears Satdy Tallarook ride

    Bear posted another Tallarook ride, and having been on his last one a couple of weeks ago and enjoying myself, I thought why not have another go. Big crew of riders turned up on a chilly but warming Saturday morning and were ready (even Trailz) to go at 9am. After suffering the effects of man flu during the week (which we all know is much stronger than the normal flu), I was looking for an out after the first 10 minutes with my heart beating out of its chest and feeling like decorating the beautiful Tallarook greenery with last nights dinner and the half dozen Bourbons that I thought would help make me feel better. With stupid thoughts out of my head we followed Bear around Tallarook. The tracks were surprisingly grippy with the odd tree root or branch ever present to keep you on your toes (or arse if you weren't paying attention). Some play hills were conquered by those capable and the rocky uphill track that had me stuck the last time around didn't pose the same problem, even with CV stopping half way with a shortage of fuel and dirt bikes falling all around him with their lines taken. Thanks to Bear for posting and leading the ride, everyone that turned up and made it an enjoyable day and Fab who was the complete professional on sweep duties. I have a clip of Trailz exploits on a hill and Lindon performing a fancy pirouette after riding up same hill, but being a dummy on the computer it may take some time to post it. Until next time.

    New rider from sunbury

    $796 for unreg and the same for unlicensed, so just shy of $1600, (kids included, so be wary taking them into a state forest). TAC is the most important benefit out of the registration.
