  2. I had a real good look at one when they first landed. Very heavy but mostly like Bearmx said its all ADR crap. Fake rear cush drive (not a deal killer but for the cost I would have expected the real thing). I reckon if one can be had for a low low price it would be an option. Tank is super small and the suspension will need upgrades. Hell, after all the mucking around your into white/orange bike budget. Then there’s the lackluster power to contend with. It’s hard to pass the 12-16 MY 500 EXC if light adventure is the game.
  3. Jay, have you ever had the tyre changed on the bike by a dealer or someone other than yourself?
  4. What a life saver! Cheers for all your efforts mate. Well done.
  5. If you’re and XL check the for sale Alpinestars M8 Helmet XL NEW https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?share_fid=19190&share_tid=18453&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Edirtriderz%2Ecom%2F&share_type=t&link_source=app
  6. Some of the tracks will be so overgrown it will be like riding them for the first time! I cant wait....
  7. I would ride it Ian but Ive never hit a golf ball or had a hit of heroin from the fear of addiction. Maybe during the next pandemic.
  8. I try and ride a few times a week with a couple of mates for exercise. We trash talk e-bikes in a manner similar to 4 stroke vs 2 stroke. There’s nothing worse than pedaling up a steep climb with my lungs burning and my legs on fire to get passed by a geriatric on an e-bike. I can see the allure of getting out in the bush on an e-bike when its an only option (versus sofa surfing) but I’m not sure how much exercise you really get with the motor assist. I’m not knocking them because I know there is one in my future. Ive told my partner I want one for my 70th birthday. Now on to the debate about wether they should be allowed on the same track as a regular pushy. They really mess with my chances for KOM on Strava[emoji12]
  9. 2 stroke 150 or 200 white or orange flavor, 125 might be too peaky. Orange free ride and red X Trainer might be an option
  10. Berg 501 lightweight ADV bike.
  11. Pushy only. At least that’s what I’m doing.
  12. The fine has been overturned. https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/police-fine-man-1652-for-driving-to-a-bike-trail-then-withdraw-it-20200407-p54hye.html
  13. Huge shout out to Coggs for putting this ride together. Conditions were perfect and the tracks never disappoint at Dissa! Not sure what the sweeps name was but thanks for taking on the thankless job. Is was great to see some newer riders pushing themselves. It was a great day of self isolation with a lot of elbow bumping and air high fives. I saw a lot of assistance at some of the more challenging obstacles which was big demonstration of the Dirtriderz mindset of helping everyone get through. Only one mechanical during the ride but otherwise a perfect day. I’ve posted the few videos I took so hopefully there are a few more ready to be shared.
