  1. Axle bearing question

    Everyone to their own but, I'd buy OEM OR quality seals and bearings from a bearing shop.

    Well what a weekend. If I could use one word to sum it up, Extraordinarily. Ric awesome photos and vids. Made the trek up with PeteM and met some of the crew at Beulah, than off to Yaapeet to meet the rest and gear up for a quick ride. Sand is new to me , only ever rode on it fifteen odd years ago at Beachport, so it was a very educational warm up ride. With a lot off downs and some tips from the regulars, it eventually started to make sense. Lean Back, Relax, Faster is better and if your not sure Gas it! With a flat, and repair in the rain, we headed back to dry out, eat have a few drinks and get some rest for the day that was to unfold. This warm up ride gave us a good indication of what was to come. Saturday was one of those days that I will remember for a long time. Had some OMG moments, with a few track detours which could have landed me in trouble with the DSE for plowing down trees, and one close call with a Roo. Had some good fun chasing and being chased by Jman, (he can vouch for the Roo). Every time I thought I was humming along, there was this noise behind me followed by a glimpse of BearMX , he hums! Thanks to Arbo, Arthur, Dale and Co for the ride lead and support, A special thanks to Bruce for tail duties, his patience and tips. I think the tail man is the unforgotten Hero, gives up his free run for the benefit of the group, he also mentioned to the group if your on a corner and need a squirt point it in the direction of the ride leader, think I nailed that one. Thanks to Ric for the practice in tube changing and a most sincere thanks for the next days efforts. With 350 odd KM's for the day, and two assisted tube changes, when I got back I knew i was going to feel this one, which is the case right now. For someone who was in two minds about going I'm glad I went and also not. Why not you may ask, Sand Blasted The New Bike & some good battle scars. Spark Arrestor Fell Out Broke the Buckle on my BumBag. Lost my GOPRO and with that, all the footage. Some signs off Concussion. Why Yes, ALL THE ABOVE (In the Why Not Bit) Awesome Location Awesome Riding Awesome Crew & Backup Awesome Locals (I think the attendees know who I mean). Awesome Weather (which you can't plan but we had it). Every time I meet new people on Dirtriderz I'm always blown away, what a great group of people this forum Attracts! Ric offered to try find my lost Gopro on Sunday, it was like trying to look for a needle in a haystack, but was worth a try, if your ever out in Big Desert and on Moonah Trk, Eagle Trk joining Nth Sth Trk and you spot a Gopro, let me know. If you haven't done it, give it a go, but be prepared, it's a BIG DAY OUT. Would I do it again, let me get over this one and I'll let you know. Thanks again Arbo and to all the group who made it a memorable weekend. Till next time, See Ya In The Dirt/Sand.
  3. Mounting garmin 62s

    I have had mine come out as well, five bikes and a 20KM round trip and spotted it on the ground, lucky. Drill two holes in the top of the cradle and two near bottom, if you do them right the bottom cable tie sits across the Garmin inscription between the screen and IN / OUT buttons. Never moves now and the roller doesn't matter. Just need two cable ties for every ride, normally i don't take it off through the ride, but spare cable ties its back on again. These are of the bracket I made for the 640, the bottom photo is whats on my Husky now that use to be on the Berg. I don't think the guy makes these aluminium brackets anymore, but they are pretty good.

  7. giving up the smokes

    Gave up smoking three years ago and brought a dirt bike. The dirt bike habit cost me about the same or more, but a lot more enjoyable?
  8. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    NO, Looks like there selling without having to run promotions on them.
  9. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    YES, But when KTM are offering 1K Power Parts with new bikes and you can get one on the road for under 14K. Stamp duty on 12K would bring it to 12.5K, so 1.5K difference and you get one of the showroom floor, with warranty, 12K seems top price for it. Sometimes things happen for good reasons, looking at a new Husky as well.
  10. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    Yeah, Had an agreed price of 11K, was going to pay deposit this morning and get a phone call another buyer with 12K.
  11. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    Just missed out on this. Than looked at a new 2017 KTM 350EXCF and a new Husqvarna FE350. HMM, do like the Husky. Any opinions.
  12. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    That's SOLD There's a better one. [emoji3]
  13. KTM 2017 350 EXCF

    Peeps, Deciding on upgrading the Berg to a KTM 2017 350 EXCF. Who's got one and how do you find them? Read somewhere that they have some stalling issues? Any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers.
  14. This is a question I have as well. Didn't the DELWP or whatever their called now ask AMTRA to participate in a project on mapping tracks at Neerim for this purpose. The discussion is around the fact that there is a lot of ridden tracks or overgrown tracks out there, that are even on maps that you purchase. The chance of a rider being seriously hurt is reduced due to slower riding & no presence of 4WD's, they are by far safer for riders. Isn't it about making the sport safer and educating the public and users of such. I would rather be riding Technical tracks with hidden treasure's around every corner, than riding fast around a fire trail with the added concern of another bike coming around the corner on the wrong side or even worse some guy in a 4WD. Was at Murrindindi yesterday, young bunch in a 4WD hooning around and drinking, bottle out the window. Yelled out to them to pick it up, than said don't worry I will, I went over to pick it up, they drove past me so I could hand it to them. Commented don't do that some sucker like me may run over the broken glass and get a puncture, no worries all cool was the reply, where do reckon it ended up? I think responsible use of the bush is more the concern, and that goes for ALL users. Video and pictures I guess are just evidence of responsible or irresponsible use. As stated. Don't be dumb, use common sense when both riding and posting. Taken on board.
