  3. Haha thanks Bud [emoji106]
  4. Practice your front braking technique on the flat ground to see how far you can push it. You will be surprised how quickly you can brake. You will find in time your riding position will be all over the bike. Practice standing on the pegs as much as you can as this will aid your suspension and handling dramatically. Grip the tank /seat with your knees until your confidence will let you move around the bike. You will feel vulnerable at first but see how it helps later. I sit down sometimes because I’m being lazy [emoji3]
  5. EOI for future Beginners/L1 ride at Whipstix https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?share_fid=19190&share_tid=18002&share_pid=320561&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Edirtriderz%2Ecom%2Fapplications%2Ftapatalk%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F18002-EOI-for-future-Beginners-L1-ride-at-Whipstix-%2Fpage__view__findpost__p__320561&share_type=t
  6. Welcome to DirtriderZ,im about to post a beginner ride which will be a good starter for you. Keep an eye on Organised Rides Vic thread [emoji106]
  7. Gday [mention=6516]Ruger[/mention], My 2 cents worth. Practice your front brake as much as you can especially down hill till you can confidently get it to the point of lock up. I use 80% front as most of your weight transfer goes to the front. I use my rear brake in combination with the front on down hills if I need it as only rear braking usually puts the rear end out of whack and when I want to flick the back out to get the right line in tighter stuff or if I have to brake quickly. Plenty of riders rely on the rear brake and if they have a rear brake failure in hilly terrain they generally freak out more so in wet conditions. Oh and when im being an idiot and doing skids like my old BMX days. Hope this helps mate [emoji106]
  8. Awesome bloody weekend guys great to catch up ride have a laugh and de stress all at the same time. Rider your a gun mate thanks so much for the roast dinner/ride/card board arrow guides/Chivas Regal and organising a smashing weekend. Thanks[mention=4841]Stinky[/mention] for sweeping/riding tuition down the back [emoji106] [mention=112]mOtOchick[/mention] your carving those tracks and rocky climbs good onya,Ruger mate we’ve all been there and at least you can say you had a crack. Like I said to you channel that frustration and use it to attack the track. Well done getting up that hillclimb as many would have given up [emoji106] Defiantly come to the L1 ride [mention=6516]Ruger[/mention] as there is some great little practice hills amongst other tracks with small logs to practice your jumps. Vid will come at some stage. See yas out there [emoji108]
  9. Make sure you confirm your ride level with @Vesparacer before starting the ride as he knows one very memorable track which ill get back to one day. The first hill is an instant warmup. Hope it works out for you [emoji106]
