  1. Hey guys. I know some of you follow Trent(my son) and his racing. I’m super happy (understated) to report that after a weeks training in the desert and the weekend racing at the Hattah Desert Race, he has come away with 3rd place in the 300 2 stroke category. To say this is an achievement is an understatement as the conditions were atrocious and really hard on bikes. He had to nurse the bike home on the final lap which cost him about 30-50 spots outright, but managed to hold onto 3rd in class. Yeah. I know. Proud dad ranting, but it’s one of his smartest rides to date. Anyway, good on you Chubbs!!!
  2. Great ride on Saturday. Thanks go to Coggs for taking the effort in putting on this ride. Also big thanks to Bushy for sweeping the entire ride and enduring the dust! This was a very capable group and the ride flowed well all day Just a couple of Incidents(already covered) for the day No breakdowns but it did look like we were going to get rid of Hoff at one point when he managed to check his chain tension with a rock wedged between his chain and sprocket. He managed to fix this, despite my help, and continued on. Not his usual talkative self on this ride and l put it down to the fact he’s still mourning the fact his fluro zebra gearset is nearly beyond repair. Was good to sit at the top of 3rd gear hill and watch the boys give it a crack. Dusty was impressive in his commitment but even more impressive in his passion of telling his bike where it went wrong, just shy of the top. I think he was a bit surprised when he looked up to see us there[emoji44] Was a good mix of tracks and a well led ride. Good to meet some new guys. Hope to ride with you all again soon.
  3. I don’t think your fitness is the issue. That Pudmud bloke is dragging you down to his skill level[emoji30]
  4. Are you talking about when your bike nearly caught on fire[emoji1787]
  5. Hi Steviewonder In my opinion , the majority of the Stockman’s ride was conducted on open fire trails and would be graded at Level 2. There were steep rocky ascents/descents which would raise the difficulty level to a level 2+ I’m sure you remember the one extended narrow rocky downhill track on the blue loop. How good was that track! That would definitely be a challenge for a 2+ rider Remember that not only terrain but the pace of the ride needs to be taken into consideration. If you felt comfortable with the terrain and didn’t get too fatigued along the way, you’d hold your own on a 2+ ride If you’re unsure, start on a level 2 and go from there. Hope this helps
  6. Thanks to Bear for another good ride And to Simon for sweeping all day. He did such a good job of it, l reckon it should be a permanent gig. The only Buisness he got for the day was me and my clutch issue. I managed it for the first half of the ride but when we stopped at the top of Trailz’s favourite track for a break, l tried to fix it and only managed to loose the entire clutch. Thanks to Hoff for demanding to swap bikes for the rest of the ride. I think those that know both of us will know how that conversation went. I need to apologise to everyone for being late. Despite all the banter to the contrary, l need to be honest and tell everyone the truth......it was DON’s fault. ‘Great to ride with the Fluor zebra’ I heard someone say from the group at the debrief. After looking around trying to work out who could possibly have said such a thing, it dawned on me. There’s Lindon looking at the zebra with a glint of admiration in his eye. Good to meet some new Dirtriderz and to ride with some familiar faces once again.

  11. Happy birthday Shane Must be time we rode together again
  12. Thanks to Bear for another variation on his Pyrenees ride. Lulled into a false sense of security after bypassing the slippery rocky climb we started the last ride with, Bear took us to an even more challenging hill climb to start the day. It was good to pass one particular little upstart(my son) halfway up a snotty hill. I did wave to him as l rode by. That doesn’t happen very often. That hill climb had it all, rocks, slippery logs, clay and more slippery logs. Everyone was warmed up by the top Don was giving himself a good talking to at the top and would thoroughly redeem himself later in the ride when he tackled a particularly difficult long climb with aggression and determination to ride the entire climb in one attempt. As Bear said”that’s a Best on Ground performance “ Well done Don. After fixing my picture, we rode for quite a while before regrouping at a cross track where we came to the realisation Lindon has difficulty counting past 10. There was quite a bit of discussion if CV was worth going back for and I’m not so sure it was a majority decision When Bear and I found CV, he’d already built a lean to and was busy rubbing two sticks together for a fire. The rest of the ride was fairly uneventful until Bear lead us to a clay hill climb which looked like it was close to vertical(from a bloke devoid of skill like me) To Trailz credit, he was sent up first cause if he could do it, we all could. No hesitation, off he went and gave it a good go too. One by one off we went with varying success. I mastered the walk of shame on the midpoint of the climb. Another challenge conquered!! The rest of the ride went well and we all shared a snag after the ride. An enjoyable day with a good bunch of blokes.

    Three for me Geffro
  14. Can somebody please post another photo. I get scared every time l open this thread
  15. Ok l only got one photo from yesterday. This is the inside of my left leg after Hoff gave me a kicking for holding him up on the trail. What a great mate!! It actually happened when l had a moment with one of the trees before dropping into the last creek section l did. As Habs said,” that’s going to bruise”
