  1. Unreal, stopped insuring you without telling you. I wonder how many people have been unfortunately done over by this. Can't say l'm surprised as had a non-bike related claim with RACV and their conduct was very deceptive. Will never use RACV/IAG again.
  2. I have youi atm. Seems to be too good to be true. I dont trust insurance companies as they are out to shaft you. Anything particular with youi you have noticed in the policy? It might be worth paying more for rego but less for insurance.

    Wombat Closure

    The whole thing is very weird, but that seems to go with the Greens. They want to stop logging so attach a sob story about a possum and destruction of habitat. They should make these flogs walk from one end to the other so the really understand how much forest is still there.

    Romainiacs 2018

    That was a big hit, good effort to continue riding after that.

    Cobaw in search for Dakota`s tracks

    Thanks Marko for putting on this ride it was very challenging, great photos too. Have read about Dakotas rides before and it’s a reputation well earned. Haven’t been this sore after a ride for awhile. Thanks to Gypsy and Sabo for Sweeping and Ben for helping on the hills.

    Sunday 24th June - Black Range L3+

    Thanks Phil for organising a great day riding out Murrindindi. We covered a good variety of riding going from one side of Dindi to the other. Fair to say angled logs and red clay don’t go together well and getting some 2 wheel slides happening made it very interesting. Thanks also to sweeps Mike and Mitch.

    Goggles, are my eyes important?

    Do you wash your goggles with the lenses installed? I find if the separating foam between lenses gets wet or is not fully dried it will fog up between the lenses.

    2018 KTM/HUSQVARNA TPI 250/300

    I have a 250 TPI done 20hrs on it, only issue has been the idle. Steep downhills have to give throttle else it would stall all the time. I initially thought it was my riding style coming from a 4 stroke but having to give throttle on an efi bike didn't make sense. Fix it by adjusting idle with butterfly valve stop instead of idle air bypass screw which gives it more fuel at idle. Gives the bike more go off bottom and stopped the stalling. Adjusting idle this way is how its done on ktm 4 strokes. Apart from that bike has been great.

    KTM 450 XC-F 2015

    Yes will give a fault light if out of a high/low range. I just suggested as not on list of sensors checked and have heard before of them playing up once bike was stopped after warmed up. Hasn't the battery change fixed the problem?

    KTM 450 XC-F 2015

    Did the KTM?? mechanic check all the sensors for you when they looked at it, what about MAP (manifold pressure sensor)?

    Wombat winter wonderland

    Thanks Fab for putting on and leading this ride. I had been eagerly waiting for a wombat ride to come up that l was able to get too. Have been out to wombat a few times before but nothing like the tracks we covered on Saturday. Thanks also Honest Tom for sweeping all day. It was good to meet some new riders, great bunch of guys to ride with for the day, hope to catch up again on another one.

    Mo-tow (or similar generic carriers)

    I use a towbar carrier for the same reason as not enough space to store a trailer. I have a Rack N roll, well made and thought out. It has a plate attachment to stop any rocking movement so bike is mounted very stable. Also no tie downs are required.

    Rear brake line "popped"

    Does your rear brake peddle have free play adjustment? some have peddle position & free play (ktm) some only have peddle position (yamaha) l've had similar occurr when free play was wrong, gradually tightens the rear brake untill it locks up like you describe.

    RCHA day 3 sun 9th April Toolangi lvl 3

    Thanks Cluffie for this ride it was a good day. I read before going that you had put some planning into this loop and being able to adapt it to the conditions was great. I have never ridden Toolangi in the wet as have been told its pretty tough and best to avoid so seeing bolts of lightning shoot across the sky as driving up into the hills l thought we were in for a big day. Hitting the first tracks confirmed the rumours and the struggle began with keeping the bike upright and the front wheel from slipping out or taking me on a random path off into the bush. Once acceptance set in that l was going to be wet for the rest of the day l was really getting into it and did mention to myself a few times how awesome riding is. Some of the decent down hills and uphills in the valley section were good fun, I did have a few pucker moments heading downhill in the slop wondering if l could pull up for some of those the corners. Overall it was a good day out on the bike with a good group of guys, thanks also to Chris for sweeping all day.
