    Great day out with Gypsy at a new destination for me, love going to somewhere new!!!!. good day except for the constant repairs being made to the KTMS...lol . Ill put the photos up soon.
  5. Great post!!!!! I wonder how many people have experienced the same problems. I don't want to jinx myself but Ive had 250 hrs, 5500k without any trouble. Mines a 16 model and if I ever have problems then this post would be a great help. At least the Beta parts are cheap!!!!
  6. Mt Dissa Beta Buzz Style!

    Wish we had time for some pictures!!!!! Gee its good to head out with a hill climber of gypsy"s calibre. 3rd gear hill annoyed me a bit today... just have to hold it fully pinned at the bottom!!!!!! I mean screaming!!!! . The Widow maker...looks nothing like it did a few years back for those of you who have seen it in the past, its even worse now!!!!!. Swampy, loose as but still doable. Good fun Gypsy, thanks mate!!!! and for the rest of you, be very afraid for Gypsy now has the loop on his new GPS, so if he puts a ride on at Dissa.....
  7. Oh well, here goes, I do a lot of rides with a lot of people from a lot of different groups. I don't restict who I take because of what group they belong too. Many of the people who I ride with have left this site for various reasons but I still try to include DRZ when I can. I too will not be dictated too as to who I take on my rides. This forum is a means for people to connect with other riders and I have met many great people. If this is my last post and I hope its not, then so be it!!!!

    Bloody hell Cluffie, I feel your pain. Looks like you drowned it pretty bloody good.
  9. Dirtriderz do Romaniacs

    I knew we wouldnt keep this a secret forever, thanks Dazz!!!. Just one of those bucket list things that I thought Id never do but when a good friend is going and the Mrs gives the green light, there aint no excuses left!!!!. I do owe thanks to all the people Ive ridden with and met through this website over the past couple of years for getting me to a position now where I feel I can have a crack at this. Mev and I are now starting to train pretty hard and basically just smash our bikes every weekend!!!. To say Im excited about July is an understatement!!!. Cheers Buzz
  10. New brake lever

    Hey Gary, I bend the brake lever on the beta all the bloody time in rough crap. Ive always managed to bend them back without braking them, just need a good size lever to do it. I did break one one but it was bent underneath my footpeg (90 degree bend in it).
  11. Coggs Dissa and Swamp hill

    Thanks Coggs for the ride. Will post up some photos when I get a chance. Good to see dazz make it through the creek without taking his bike for a swim!!!. Always good to meet new faces. Cheers Buzz
  12. Got talked into this by Browny and Shane(STM13). Did a practice day and a club race just to get the feel for it and I think this helped on race day. I consider myself to be reasonably fit and Ive done some some physically demanding things in the past( 6 times ironman triathlon finisher and 4 melbourne marathons) but racing hard enduro certainly ranks right up there for being physically demanding. Race day arrives and then your into the prologue. Heart rate to 180bpm but boy its fun. Safely through prologue with a start time and then off to watch the pros. Gee can they ride!!!!! What a great experience to ride the same course as some of the best in the world. Next we are lining up for our 3 hour torture test while the pros do 4 hours. Its hard not to be excited at the start. 3 hours later I roll across the finish line completely spent, nothing left in the tank!!!!. Been fighting a flat front tyre I slashed half way through lap one( first front flat Ive had in about three years) and trying to ride the bike with no rear brake since lap 2( completely smashed off in the rock garden). Awesome day run by an awesome club at Wildwood. If you like this stuff you gotta try it, even if only once. I really appreciated seeing some of the DRZ crew cheering us on, Toys,Fab , Brian(kbuxx), Shane, Mr Noodles and i know there were others there. Will I do it again next year, Shit yeah and I reckon all the boys from DRZ who rode on the weekend have already locked it in for next year!!!!!
  13. Buzz's "cruisy" level 3 ride

    I like the description, "fluffing around the edges" might use that description next time I run a cruisey level3!!!!!!
  14. Buzz's "cruisy" level 3 ride

    Thanks to the crew that fronted for the ride. Been dying to show Dusty some of the new stuff. We did a bit here and there and played on some of the old classics. Everyone did really well and that one hill climb( you guys know the one) challenges most. Cruiser you need to come on the full monty!!!!!!!!! Cheers Buzz
  15. I dont get hung up so much on the hours, if your compression drops then you need a new top end. How do you know when this is?. Performance will be down, you wont climb hills like you used to, get it compression tested or do it yourself. 60, 80 100 hrs this is a guide as to when you may need a new topend. Some people get way more. If you look after the air filter and make sure your not getting any dirt past the pipe where it mounts on the engine ( make sure there is no spoog coming out the front) then you will get more hours.
