    Hide and seek @ Bears Pyrenees

    Sounds like a top ride. Learnt along time ago never to take Cobraone's line.
  2. Very informed review. Being a member of such a good forum allows you to jump on some amazing very well prepared rides. Plus a top bunch of blokes. It's a pity about the bad experience as the Vic High Country is an epic place.

    Best Tiedowns

    I love the Pro Taper ones. The teeth on the buckles really bite down into the fabric. I just ordered a new set from RMATV only because I was ordering a whole heap of other stuff. The last set still going strong after 3 years. https://www.mxstore.com.au/p/Pro-Taper-Tiedowns/PT02-2819 https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/3436/24481/ProTaper-Swivel-Hook-Carabiner-Soft-Loop-Tie-Downs?c=13 I'd also recommend the ballard's fork saver. The plastic ones are s@&t. https://www.mxstore.com.au/p/Ballards-Adjustable-Fork-Support/72-99-1001 Probably something we shouldn't skimp on. Nearly watched a KTM bounce out of a ute on Saturday going over a bump coming into the unloading area.

    Forma boots sale

    Got a pair this morning. Thanks guys. Still have plenty of stock so grab yourself a bargain. Kids boots are also really good price $150 I think and really good quality.

    Macka well done on another memorable trip. 3 days of riding and 298km = happy days. Out for a 90km ride Friday with Fullysick to get in the groove and had a blast going along some of the sandy tracks along the channel and taking in some awesome views and being stalked by I think the biggest Eagle I have ever seen. Back at camp and beating the latte crowd back we enjoyed a nice BBQ and a few froths. Saturday was the big day and by what I mean by big, well 31 riders lined up and the pace was on. At the back taking up sweep duties and with the size of the group we had 3 on the corner, I tell you what if I had a few of those fast Wimmera boys (dam some of those boys are fast) or a few Dirtriderz guns, aka, BearMX, Farmerbrown or BruceKTMguy, well I was pushing the limit to keep up. Macka had this so well organised. Two support vehicles, one for fuel for the bikes and one for fuel for the bodies. Tracks were mainly fast but a few surprisingly tricky uphills especially if you had to stop halfway up. Incredibly there were no major hold ups. I think I saw a busted up finger (hope it's on the improve Marko), front puncture and a stick rupturing a fuel tank (never witnessed that before). 150km later and back at camp the beers flowed and the spit roasts were demolished. Sunday was a bit of a later start from the previous nights antics (a couple did the all nighter, needless to say they weren't on Sunday's ride). 12 of us geared up and smashed out a glorious 60km looping Lake Wartook. Really nice track where the pace was up but you had to be on the ball because a few of the creek crossings would come up quick and catch you by surprise. 11 of us made it back. Sorry Trev, I think a few weary bodies let the cornerman system down, glad you and the DRZ made it back safe. Macka thanks again for letting me take part in this well organised event and hats off to a few of your mates for supporting and cooking up a storm. Hopefully a few of the guys will become members so they can check out some other forum rides. Glad I didn't get on the memorial trophy and hope I never will. Till next year TB

    Green Day Wednesday

    Fantastic ride. With a text to Trailz to see if he's keen for a midweek ride turned into, "yep let's turn it into a forum ride." Not much arm twisting got Trailmaker300 to lead on a loop that he's been putting together for a while, and a "I wanna do that massive loam hill that we went down, but going up," he was quickly on board. Great traction next too no dust and the heat down, it was prime conditions. I swear Greendale was created for dirtbike riders. Paradise Track, Loamy Ridge Track. It is truly dirt bike heaven. Given todays and the next few days of rain if we went back out there we would probably consider it dirt bike hell. I think Scotland summed up the ride well. He stopped in one of the epic gully's we were in and said, "this is awesome." Yes Scotland...yes it was. Back at work today thinking all day about yesterday. I think a few more midweek rides need to be penciled in. Thanks fellas for another sensational ride.

    New knee braces.

    You can try my pods next time to see how they fit. Saved me plenty. Helmet, boots and knee braces are a must have IMO.

    Careful out there lads n ladies

    I remember out Enfield 20 years ago someone laid a plank with nails sticking out of it. Didn't catch who done it. If your annoyed with MTB or dirtbike riders this is not the avenue you take. We've been pulled over by the police twice in three weeks. Talk to them if you have a problem. There doing plenty of patrols around the place.

    I've had a 40lt engel for 10 years and hasn't missed a beat. Might be a bit more power hungry comparing to a waeco but they've been around for a long time. In-laws have had one for 15-20 years and it's still going strong. I'd be setting it up with a dual battery system as a minimum.
