    Hey mate Welcome aboard. I can relate to yr skills sentiments when i first started riding 8 years ago at the tender age of 45. I may be able to sort out some easy peasy L1 rides with you & anyone else that wants a cruisy no stress ride. Fridays (& weekdays) are generally good for me too but unfortunately this friday & next friday im booked out helping friends move. Where abouts are you located ? I'm near moorabbin, 3189.
  3. Hi Rowdy Ive recreg'd 3 bikes at 3 seperate vicroads camps last year. 2 bikes were previously registered many years ago. One was a put together bike. The common denominator was the VIN & Engine #'s needing to be clean (not stolen) & matching previous owners details in vicroads database. The put together bike had accompanying purchase receipts from bike wreckers that i bought frame & engine cases from outlining the vin & case #'s. Vicroads did the rest without many questions. Next came the physical inspection & apart from VIN checks, this is what i observed they looked at on bike. Bike #1 : Headlight & Horn sound check but didnt notice i didnt even have a mirror afixed. Didnt even look for a working rear brakr light. Bike #2 : mirror only & nothing else. Didnt even ask to start bike & scrutinize further. Bike #3 : didnt even ask for a mirror as i had it in the boot of car. Didn't even ask to start bike but the engine was in half being rebuilt so was missing head, cylinder piston etc. I was expecting to get knocked back but Beat That !!! I guess your at the mercy of the tester on the day. Some testers are thorough & inquisitive while others weigh more importance on just the database vin/engine Admin details to roll you.out fast. But if you want to be sure to be sure, i suggest have a bike that starts & has a working headlight, rear brake light & horn, Right hand mirror, decent looking tyres, no oil or water Leaks & generally visually clean. Which is pretty much how you'd want your bike operating to say the least. Hope this helps
  4. Shows an 8min travel from sunbury burke rd to golf course. Tried this on android maps aswell as computer
  5. Would love to know the loop. Also quite a spectacle of a drive is around Kyaak stopping at Murchison Gap Lookout to savour up Reddy Creek. Then along King Parrot Creek Rd starting from Straths Creek & viewing the exposed boulders from rolling hills along Kerrisdale, Trawool as your heading to Seamour. Certainly a take your time & absort the spectacular views type of drive. Puttin my 20c in

    Welcome aboard mickf. Great bunch of blokes at motoheaven, highly recommend them & been going there since they first opened up. Maybe able to ride with you midweek once the easter silly season's done.
  7. Ha ha ha Yest he told me the story about something that happened a long time ago- a raffle- particular bike- accusations made etc. But I make a point in life to never fight other people's Wars and battles as well as avoiding & omitting all politics from with forums. But I must say that yesterday he was a complete gentleman and a great host of his ride. For someone like me to finish 60 km of fast goats Trails and tracks is a major accomplishment and required much backing as I would never attempt to do these trails on my own
  8. Don't know what that means but just like I would for any other good helpful bloke I'm singing franky's song today. Maybe I just might take 13 slices of ham to Hazelwood next time
  9. Well what was to be an early arrival at unloading point didnt end up as planned as my mobile plan ran out on way there. After navigating blindly i arrived abit too late as the group had already unloaded and taken off. So while I was chasing the sound of distant roaring bike echoes, I bumped into a group of 8 riders which I thought was Dirtriderz but instead being a local cohort lead by a guy called Franky. So I tagged on with them and we undertook fast flowing tight trails and afew hill climbs all day long. Most of these tight tracks we're very faint'n' fresh & hadn't been broken into yet. We even carved out new tracks thru dense forest. Franky told me that he maps these tight tracks by walking around the forest with his dog during the week. I placed much trust in Franky's local knowledge & judgement & this paid out for the entire 64km course of the ride. The entry to most of these tracks were completely discreet & unrecognisable from the fire trails. Although up to now I have cringed and been repelled by these goats trails / tight tracks& this sorta technical riding- today I thoroughly enjoy them and loved jumping from one tight track to the other. The group was also fun to be with and thank them for their similar lead, cornerman and Sweep system. As usual I can't remember all their names but I'll definitely be back to ride with Franky, Paul & co. again. Franky's Paul's and the rest of the group's care factor was very high and generous. They gave me many good tips, one of them being to bring a dust mask & grippy front tyre next time I return back here. Upon arriving back to carpark I met up with 2 remaining dirtriderz from Carrum Downs who'd already loaded and stories to tell. Thanks for the beer fellas. Despite the initial setbacks the day can only be described as Serendipity.
  10. Hi I'm after a good condition REAR WHEEL to fit KTM 400/450/520/525 , 2000-2006. Hoping to spend around $200. Please contact me if you have one lying around
  11. Thanks to all for organising the weekend camp and rides. Absolutely loved it and will be looking forward to many more get away ride camps. Loved the banter & camaraderie with the great bunch of blokes I've never met before. Thanks to Geoff ktm350 for some awesome hillclimbs & firetrails after pulling out of Sat morn's L2+. Followed by a good beach ride in afternoon. Which eventuated in my helping rescue 3 foolhardy first timer 4wd's in middle of Howes Creek. Then apparently there was some search party while my keen sense of adventure led my exploring offbeat tracks aswell as the picturesque SEC track. I can't remember all your names or aliases but I do remember a great time had over the last 3 days as well as awesome banter and rides.
  12. No wind this morning so all day there was much yellowy brown sticky smoky Haze on our travel from Metung (near Lakes Entrance), especially at Bairnesdale, Sale down to Seaspray. Haze was sticky & smoky & restricted the view to about a mile tops, blocking off any view of the Horizon and mountainous scenery. The cool air seabreeze at Seaspray has dispersion haze & smoke. CFA alerts made mention of poor air quality in all these areas & i felt abit headachey near Sale but all good now. Did you get that haze in Melbourne ?
  13. GooMorning y'all GREAT NEWS- its been heavy raining in Metung for several hours now. The b.o.m. screenprint only shows rainfall in past hour, but im sure it has all but extinguished or at least contained fires.
