  1. Tallarook - 2017 Xmas ride

    Absolutely Spewin I missed this ride. Sounds like perfect weather for this time of year. Have to come next year for sure as well as the weekender. Stuff work and clients. Lol. Great reports all. Makes me miss riding and now a little sad. Nothing a few drinks can't fix.
  2. Adding an (S)

    Like the idea dazz. Cruisy lvl 2 rides seem like the go for such a ride as you suggest. Maybe post up for such a ride. There didn't seem to be as many rides posted this year as others that I have seen. Hope there's many different rides next year.
  3. Seaton L2 Stepup

    Like I said on sunday, plan to do lots of rides there next year of lvl1-3. Hope to give 2 weeks notice for all rides.

    90km for the day will surely test most out. You did a great job in lasting the days ride. Once ya bikes tuned a bit you'll be smashing stuff. Keep it up. Next year you can jump on the lvl3 route I've almost linked up.

    Sorry it's long, but no photos Wayward1 sure lives up to his name when taking his time doing the ride reports. He says so much but Way too little of himself when he forgets to mention Eddie the eagle soured past his helmet. Also, he loves his beta and I'm sure the Italian princess will send him flying like Eddie the eagle did if she finds out he wants to replace her with a younger and prettier model. So the day started early waking at 6am without an alarm. As soon as I put my head on the pillow the night before I thought I should set the alarm but took a chance and woke up with a spring in step. Hasn't happened much this year but excited for the day. Met up with suzbeano at Longwarry and had a short chat. Left there and kilvo msg me saying he's running a bit late. He's a few minutes ahead so tell him to follow as yallourn power station is a little tricky 1st time through. We get there at 8.55am and katman was there but other side of the Weir. Have a chat and wayyyyyyt for sean. Katman phoned him just before he arrived and sounds like he's just woken up. Oops. Keep chatting for a while and ring wayward1 at 9.20. Get out of bed was the first instruction but hearing the road noise he's not far away. He lives Way to close to his local but what a local it is. Was here a few months back for the intro and this place has all of the good stuff. It was 20deg already so I rode without knee guards and body armour for the first time ever. So glad I did but there was some pucker moments. Like when I rode the gas gas 300. It's the cross country model so front forks might be a bit stiffer. Great for the washout climbs compared to my husky. Took maybe 3 jumps to have confidence in the front end. Need a day to play with clickers on the 350 to set up properly. Will run a day for that early next season. On some tighter tracks the chain skipped a few times in first gear. New it needed a link taken out and thought it was until I stopped and had a look. Holy ...., the wheel was at least 10 deg out of square with the adjuster wedged into Swingarm. Couldn't move it and needed a hammer but who carries that. Suzbeano pulls out a sturdy adjustable wrench to help fix it. Thanks again suzbeano. 95% of the day was going up or down. Suzbeano grew more confident going downhill as the day wore on and it won't be long before lvl2 rides will meet her enthusiasm and the xtrainer. Had a short blast on her bike and think maybe some jetting changes needed but definitely needs float level adjusted. Needed a drink after 65km and now can offer on the fly fuel. While it was dusty for the day I decided to stop for a bit and have some fun on the endless hills. Reminded myself it's a lvl 2 step up ride after not seeing a washout on a flat section and landed on the front wheel and when the back finally came down it made me do a wheelie that I could only dream of doing in the perfect world. Great day in all. Love your backyard wayward1 and def back for your linking trails. A perfect way to end a sh...y year for my family. (Wife went and saw book of Mormon, pc or not to pc lol). Also thanks to suzbeano, kilvo and katman for coming to. Anytime you want a ride is cool with me. Daylight saving midweek rides anyone? Bottoms up.
  6. Hit The Dirt on an Indian

    I've been thinking about a second hand ducati for next road bike but after seeing this might have to splash some extra coin down for this. Super cool Indian.

    Great report, photos and video. Always love your vids faultline. Learnt a lot from your edits when doing mine a while ago. Prob should start doing some more but always feel they're too long but can't seem to cut out what is there. Anyway looks like a great weekend you guys had.
  11. Hazelwood 2+ ride

    Spur of the moment post during the the week produced 3 other keen riderz. Didn't check the weather before the ride and a bit warm for the plan for the day. Havn't ridden much lately so decide to stick with it. Trying to get a 80km + loop going with minimal breaks for the future and made some ground today with it. We only did 38k today but felt like 60k. Got the first 10k worked out but lots of tech trails after criss crossing seemed like we were going around in circles at one point. Got too many options for this part, so a whole day could be spent linking trails just in this 4sq km area. Eventually found my way out and onto some old favs. Wasn't really riding well for the day but worked on a couple of things and got a little better. Had some bad climbs and chose the wrong lines which only let the others know which line to take. Had planned to have a look at the creek track but forgot half way through. Didn't do the north loop, which is 20km that I use to start with, but can easily do 80km with the creek and the north loops included. Just need to wait for cooler weather to try the whole loop. We didn't do corner man system as we just stayed together all day. Came across some obstacles which we stayed together, but didn't need help on. Great to ride with a smaller group for a change which meant we could stop when we want and push on when we can. Thanks to Brian, Lindon and frank for a great day. Next time I'll pick a cooler day for riding.

    Still havn't done it but know roughly where it is. Was too wet for the group. Might ride it first before adding it in. The trails too their break up the ride so most likely will put it in. Prob only did 40km for the day, instead of the 80ish I had planned. All that rain sure made it interesting for some.
  14. Hazelwood 10th September

    12 of us geared up for a challenging day, with all the rain of the past week meant we skipped some of the proposed route. Started out on an old favourite to get warmed up and kept going like that for an hour. Some new stuff was a bit slippery with me holding up the group on a short climb. After watching how its done second time around straight up. Tom(tbosu1) took over as lead to show us down to the creek. Some fallen trees conquered a couple of new guys, with the odd pucker moments when trailing someone too close and they lose it somehow new skills were needed to avoid it. We get to the "point of no return" with Tom explaining that today the Creek track will be Lvl 3 and another way is 2+. Group vote dictates the other so straight up a hill which catches a few out. About 3/4 of the way up there is a somewhat steep bank which you could take. Now I saw maybe 5 guys try it with 3 getting past the first bank. This includes Tom, Nath and a newbie. Then it was Sean's turn. Comes in cautiously and just at the bottom of the bank gives it a bit. Problem was he wasn't going fast enough to start with and ghosties his bike to the top of the bank and rolls down the hill. Seeing this I try to help him out, chuckling to myself as he tries to climb up to his bike but sliding back. It's like watching someone on a treadmill which is going to fast and bam off ya go. I see the grass next to it and climb up to get his bike down. Struggle to stand up but eventually get his bike down. Forgot to take photos so I pull out the phone waiting for our sweep Greg to try but he's no where in sight. He's helping Dan down near the bottom still trying to get use to his 300. Greg kindly rides his bike up about halfway and Dan does the walk of shame. Now we head back for some hills. Lucky we went this way as going down these was tricky enough. I got stuck in a 2 foot rut and thought i'd act like a cornerman, showing the correct route. The climb up proved a bit tricky for some and when I get to the top it seems someone kept going as he didn't see the lead vest, with Tom coming back down to lend a hand. At this point I know where I am so go off to find him. He stopped not far ahead at a 4 way so no prob. Time was getting on so we miss some other climbs and head back to the cars for part 2. Tom leaves us there and heads home as do 5 others, leaving 6 for the 20km arvo loop. Sean takes over sweep duties and off we go. I have a few front end moments so go to snail pace. Everyone is on my tail so I try a bit faster, still on my tail. Try a bit more and still there. Try standing up more than usual and works for like 10seconds. Really need some lessons on how to ride. Getting tired by this stage and now try to just flow a bit. So the last track I hoped it was still there but many fallen trees put us into lets find another one. This one looped around on itself with some tricky banks and climbs which a couple found difficult, only coz I was so slow they didn't see it coming and didn't have enough speed. Somehow I manage ok until I worked out we are going around in circles. Finally found the correct route and back to the cars for a well earned rest. Oh and some drinks thanks to Greg. Thanks to all that came, especially Tom for showing me some new stuff and Greg and Sean for Sweeping. Greg had lots to do in the morning so next time I'll bring the drinks. Cheers
