    Wet Wombat L2 14/7

    Arnt we forgetting something.......... Ohhhhh that's right a fantastic ride captured by BearMX and a slight incline that somehow makes some of us look like gumby times ten. Hey trailz you look like me some time ago. I think you really need that 450 now.

    Should have some footage of some non slippery trails in a few weeks. Traction won't be an issue but loamy sand in the face I won't get being out front. I wonder if your bike would wobble at all in those conditions but you'll never know with that fresh cuppa!

    Great vid Bear. Really got an idea of how dark it was through the trees and how hard it was to see looking into the sun. Have to start using the Gopro from now on.

    Barclay was the other lead rider when Andy took over sweep. Good tracks which lead us to the lunch break and also the technical climb that had a few casualties. Still waiting on the video footage.......

    Wet Wombat L2 14/7

    Great wombat initiation today. Started the first ten minutes of the ride and first on the corner. Waited and waited and some waiting for our sweep and nothing. Trailz heads back and 5 mins later get sick of waiting some more. Find stinky with his starting issue and he's got the jumper leads out trying to start her up. Starters going but no fire so suggest fuel pump and grab the vest and trailz and I continue on. Hope its an easy fix as those Italian huskies are great when going. Lots of fire trail for the first half and am having a ball. We meet up with barclay to swap vests, with him leading and Andy 350 sweep. More trails and then lunch at a 'swimming pool' aka catchment. Warmup in the sun and head off into the bush. Love the trails but wombat holds its water like a drunk camel. Bit slippery here and there. Manage to catch a few bikes and try and pass em at a puddle only to lose it into a decent sized tree. Why havn't forestry cut this dangerous obstacle out of the way. We then find some great "trailz" that even the best couldn't get up. Didn't hang around enough to find out after the rescue. Awesome day and be back sometime in spring to find some grip.... Thanks again Andy for organising the ride and some bevvies after. Def welcome to hazelwood and I'll make sure your up at 6am to meet me.

    Peak hour traffic

    Especially going up a slight incline. Drive a light truck for deliverys and it struggles to get to 100. Mostly sit on 90 out of the way but when needed cars that slow in the right lane stop braking when they see I ain't backing off. Some move but if there under the limit I'll sit on em till they get it.

    Peak hour traffic

    Not to mention the drivers who stay in the right line on the freeway and slow down and not move over on the freeway. They obviously don't know that it's illegal to do so. If I had a bull bar there would be fewer f...w.ts on the road. I just get past em somehow and don't bother brake testing them as the people behind may have an accident.

    Goggles, are my eyes important?

    Great topic noodles. When I first started riding bought a pair of goggles from eBay for $12 delivered. They would fog up all the time. As I was mostly leading I'd spin em around and only put on when I knew branches were coming or when on faster trails if it was cold. I eventually bought some 100% goggles, single lens and wore them more of the time unless I got too hot. After reading this post I went out and bought the dual lense and wore goggles the entire ride. Took em off as soon as I stopped from heating but def remembered to put back on due to this post. Cheers noodles.
