  2. 2017 - 8th Annual Weekender - With footage

    A massive thanks to Geoffro and crew from DirtriderZ for organizing such an awesum weekend. Bear and I arrived Friday afternoon to find DRZ banners about the property and plenty of families having a ball. Friday afternoon we unloaded, geared up and we shot off for a fast 50klms spin on the bikes. Got back just before dark and got plenty of bevies into us and a great meal with most that arrived on the day. I asked a few of those there whether they spotted the wombat laying on the side of the road in the township before Bonnie Doon and got nutta... lol plenty of banter bout that throughout the weekend. Did anyone else see it? Newayz finally got to meet the legend - Geoffro. Great to meet you and the family. With Friday dinner into us including a few jb's we moved out to the fire and got to know a few of the other Drz members. Ideal for me coz i hardly get much sleep before a ride lol Saturday morning was a buzz with most having arrived and prept for the group morning ride. Weather was ideal (coulda done with a bit of rain haha) but then again any day is a good day to be on the bike lol The morning ride flowed really well considering the amount of riders... bar one rider who had clutch issues (can't recall who that was). The hill climb to the ridge was a feature with the group shot in the above pics... Banter a plenty til we got back on the bikes. Cruisy ride back to Starglen and the Drz family had a bbq ready for the hoards. .. thanks for those preparing it all [emoji5] Fueled up we got back on the bikes for the L2 ride... Dusty leading. We started off on a powdery rocky hill climb that caught out a few but heaps of help provided... all up and we kept moving along. One of the features was a sensational winding single track Dusty took us thru on the property hhmm heaven slight lean with the knees and zipped thru it.. grinning all the way... to a play hill that some gave a crack... nice going Noodles on the unfamiliar 2T borrowed from Dan [emoji106] Soon after we got to a winding hill that was rutted, roots a plenty and rocky... magnificent! A few struggled but again lotsa help to make sure we all got up it... Dusty did mention he forgot how difficult that hill would be as i pulled up alongside him with a big ass smile lol I'm spewing my SD card was full coz the hill was a rippa! Thanks again Dusty. Back at Starglen we were welcomed with a few bevies n waited for the riders on the L3 ride... they got back before dark and by that stage i think i was on my 6th can hhmm One of the other great singles soon formed to get to the spit... and what a feed it was [emoji38] delish! Plenty of banter and then the auction started. Heaps of goodies on offer i bid on a few to find i got outbidded lol Appatently some donated more than what the actual value of the goods were... just shows the spirit of the members [emoji110] Saturday night was hilarious Geoffro and crew has us in stitches with the auction and gave all members some goodies... btw my boy loved the cap [emoji6] Got to meet members from all over Melb which was great. Some more rides to be planned me thinks... haha Dunno what time i got to bed in the bunkhouse... but did set my alarm from 6.30am... hhmmm but got woken up by one bubbly young lady at 6.22am - Geoffyboy do ya get woken up that early every morning? Haha Brekky was awesum and sadly had to back up to make it back home at a decent hour for Mondayitis haha If ya haven't been to Starglen Lodge i gotta say it is the ultimate riding getaway weekend destination! A big thanks goes out to the hospitable staff and Geoffro for putting on the event. Bring on next one! Pics n vid to come TrailZ
  3. The Perfect Bike trailer

    There's Andy from Crownweld that has recently done some work on my trailer mate. He's just designed a bike trailer that folds up and can be stowed away in a small corner of your garage. Might be worth a call... PM me if you want to have a chat with him...
  4. Tubliss Tyre Inserts

    FYI I recently contacted Nuetech RE a leak of air from the rim where the inner tube valve juts out and they had this to say: Please try the NEW resets below (And is VERY IMPORTANT to follow EACH step) & as long as no damage to the SEALING BEAD on the TUbliss or to the tire where it mates to this should take care of it! TUBLISS RESET A & B TUbliss "RESET" A 1. Pull the valve core from the high pressure valve stem so the inner liner and tire both completely deflate. 2. Loosen the nut on the rim lock so that just 1 to 2 of the 10mm threads are showing above the top of the nut. 3. Break of tire from the bead of the rim, and start next to the rim lock - push the tires bead away from the rim so you can squirt soapy water into the drop center of the rim. Repeat this every few inches around both sides of the wheel. Then forcefully bounce the wheel on the ground while rotating it so help distribute the soapy water inside the tire. The trick here is to get the RED LINER COMPLETELY WET WITH SOAPY WATER, AFTER IT IS INSIDE OF THE TIRE. 4. Re-inflate the inner bladder to 125-psi, and the tire to 15-psi. Wait 5 minutes for trapped air to escape. Then check for a good seal by pouring soapy water around the HIGH Pressure valve stem where it comes through the rim. 5. LAST STEP, tighten the rim lock and your GOOD to GO!! IF still not holding tight please try RESET B: 1. Pull the valve core from the high pressure valve stems so the inner liner and tire both completely deflate. 2. Loosen the nut on the rim lock so that just 1 to 2 of the 10mm threads are showing above the top of the rim lock nut. 3. Forcefully bounce the wheel on the ground while rotating it so help distribute the soapy water inside the tire. The trick here is to get the RED LINER COMPLETELY WET WITH SOAPY WATER, AFTER IT IS INSIDE OF THE TIRE. 4. Re-inflate the inner bladder to 125-psi, and the tire to 15-psi. Wait 5 minutes for trapped air to escape. Then check for a good seal by pouring soapy water around the HIGH Pressure valve stem where it comes through the rim. 5. LAST - Tighten the rim lock and your GOOD to go! Hope this helps anyone with similar issues...
