  1. Well what can I say except ........ what Eddie Rabbitt said about I Love A Rainy Night !!! I love a Dusty Dissa Ride :))
  2. 5 Five Fabulous things to say about the "Rona reunion ride | Smoked trout ride" ....... Nice tracks Nice hills Nice Banter Nice post ride cheese n wine with smoked trout feast Nice video On a side note The Ballarat boyz represented extremely well, I think Faultline does his best riding on a bald tyre, must have been that Sumatra training, I really don't know how he managed to get around all day on it, even I would NOT use it in summer ! Roger on the Beta 430 seemed to make that that bike go up anything anytime. Cujo, well he was on fire, I tried chasing him down, on a long tight technical trail, but the gap wasn't changing, and was getting bigger, he just kept pulling away, nice riding. Thanks Marko for leading and Toys for sweeping us,
  3. Can't wait for it's maiden voyage. I believe it was going to be an ol school, Carby, kick start only ride !
  4. Wow great vid and Britto, that RMX250 was on fire, you and the yellow machine did a great job of all the hills, well done
  5. I rode a few inclines (not big hills) and it pulled well. If the revs drops off, it's easier to get the revs back into the meat of the torque range, as it revs up quicker. I actually can't wait to re-test the beta 200. Did I say it has no vibrations and feels as light as the XT
  6. Mick - FYI I rode a 2020 beta 200 on Sunday and have to say I was very impressed, back to back with my 2020 beta xtrainer 300, my comments are as a comparison between the two bikes not others; On a side note, I wouldn't worry to much about holding out for the KYB, as stock form was very usable. - the 200 - seems to get better rear wheel traction, this was noticed by both riders during the bike swap. - the 200 has enough bottom end and torque and almost feels like the XT 300 in power, but lacks the length of torque. - the 200 you have to gear change more. - the 200 has minimal to no vibration in low rpm = to the counterbalance 300XT - the 200 has better suspension - the 200 feels as light as the XT - the 200 has not got a good steering lock angle, but not notice in riding conditons. - the 200 does vibrate more only in high rpm and revs up quicker. - the 300xt - you can ride it all day and not get tired- if i fix the fork dive it will be a perfect bike. If I had to buy again, its a close call, but would probably go the 200, but oh its a close call and depends if i had another bike, if ididn't, i'd got the xt300. Yes its thats close, so will report back more with further testing - on both
  7. Yeah I agree on the Mikuni's....... I love them, I have had them on 2 x 17' 300's and 1 x 18' 300 all with Mikuni and had no reason to change. Perfect power and fuel economy. I must be a pussy though, as the Mikuni's have so much punch and so much power I run the green PV spring, 1 turn out. and jetted to mute all that power that comes out of the Mikuni. You're just a machine, Crusier running the red spring !
  8. Nice, I forgot about my DT125, metal tank, probably forgot a few others too

  10. Geez yeah, that's going back into the fault, great ride that one, I see MoJoe, Rider and Rage and of course i know where, as i have a map, ol school,
  11. All this TPI oil pump (pimp!) talk. I have an obvious question..... why not just remove the oil pump and be done with and run pre-mix, like some do on the Beta's???? Is this possible on the TPI's ? if so why not just do it and be done with, you'll save some weight too !
  12. We all had a go at it Cluffie, It was a bit like this............
  13. What another great weekend. I'll update more later, but here is a very quick update with some notable moments, that come to mind. The uphill drag race on the Friday in the video, yes I will give the win to Riles on the 250FX, the master still teaching the apprentices,......again, on how to do it ! He was on fire, maybe I need to do a top end or one of those tsp things to get some more horses The splash Video. Any guessers on the splasher and the splashee ? There will be both repentance and penance for his sins ! A truly magnificence weekend, best in 2020 so far. There was big hills, bigger downhills, And I can tell you that well tuned carby 300 bike loves this stuff and gets very good fuel economy. Only two little off's and I see Eammon manage to capture them both, thank you for that. A big thanks to Tim for letting us stay at his 5 star Villa, the beers, the bbq, the bullshit, The 5 star banquet with cheese and wine....... All before a big ride. Perfect
  14. But way too expensive, you can buy a new pipe with what they charge, In fact I did buy a two new pipes cheaper than was quoted from tspr. I'm all for supporting business, but price needs to be in the right ball park !
