    ADV riding

    yeah I'm thinking my body is going to start restricting me on the dirtbike a bit too much going forward. I was wondering if I was old enough yet to get into adventure bikes

    Beta X trainer 300 2018

    Depending on your size the 300RR is the better option. It's a better all round bike, will do the things the crosstrainer will but much better at all the other stuff. Gas Gas are about to release the Ranger in Australia which could be a good option as well.

    New to group, looking for a new 250cc

    Hiya Lucy, I've watched a few of the video's your partner has put up, he's made you a minor celebrity lol. Welcome to Dirtriderz and from the type of riding you do I'd say the WR250 is a good choice in that price range.

    False start, carnage and some prime tracks

    You always put on great rides mate, today was no exception. Even the weather wasn't too bad for us and the tracks made sweeping um interesting lol. Greg, thanks for the co sweep, always good to ride with you mate and awesome job on that hill! Sweep was all worth it when I got to see mighty Mick come a cropper more than once - but we''ll keep that our secret lol. And aren't post ride cramps a bitch Cheers Sean
  5. yeah there's some uncanny similarities though. Looks like you weren't the only victim. Gets interesting at the 3;30 mark
  6. no I didn't think you had more than one profile, just thought you had a sideline job educating us Gumby's
  7. I don't know the guy and have never been on any of his rides, but if what you say is true, then why are there so many complaints against him? We're not talking about one or two, the internet is full of complaints.
  8. If he operates as a hobby and with sales less than 75k each year, he isn't required to hold an ABN, file a BAS or hold and pay GST.
  9. yeah I'd be going after him for damages. Just start by sending a total invoice for all damage, less payment of $200. (that 200 is important, it accepts liability, at least in part). Also if you ask for a refund on any part of the tour such as the lift fee, do that as a separate action.

    Seaton L2 Stepup

    We were fortunate to have some team riders join us for the fun yesterday. Kilvo who is an absolute gun on the Yamaha. In the 2017 Wildwood race he came in a very respectable 174th out of 158 riders. Katman from team Sherco blessed us with his vast technical knowledge, he went to lengths to show us that if your rear brake is on the left, and you can't find your handlebars, then you're probably on the bike backwards - such insight! Suzbeano - we were very fortunate that Beta allowed her on the ride, she's generally booked months in advance for various promotional events. You can see Sue in action at the recent Sea to Sky. If you watch a video of Jarvis, you'll see her there right beside him, behind the tape cheering him on. Actually it may just be someone that looks like her, but she's a weapon on the Beta regardless. Oh and of course Greasa came. A few warm ups and straight into some L4 stuff. These guys did it easy, the last bunch that tried the washouts all fell over each other and cried like babies, not these guns. Even watched Sue do a backflip off one, I was in awe! Everything went well until Greasa broke down. Actually broke down is probably the wrong wording. What's the correct wording when you don't tighten your wheel properly and it decides not to follow the other wheel anymore? Greasa struggled with repairs as we waited for what seemed like hours, eventually he threw his tools down in disgust and demanded that a real man fix his bike. Thanks Sue for stepping up lol. Ride went on well after that, everyone managed through everything with the class that I'd expect. I left the mighty Beta in the shed and was kindly given a nice new GasGas to play with. Big thumbs up, the bike grew on me a lot throughout the day and makes for some very tough decisions on which way to go for a new bike. Rode Greasa's Husqy for a bit, no wonder he's so slow lol! Came down one creek crossing, I was a fair bit infront and decided to have a little explore up the creek (very nice too for down the track gents, track there will be sweet), then suddenly realised that myself, as the lead rider, was behind the sweep - Oops. That's probably the only time I really opened the GasGas up and pushed her a bit, it's also when I was the most impressed with her. Was a great ride with great company, you all did great. Thanks all for coming, many thanks to Greasa for sweeping all day and the accounting tips and the Beer! Cheers

    Hit The Dirt on an Indian

    From what I understand most will be sold long before they hit the country. They aren't a production run just a concept bike based off their race bike. The engine in this is the same as in my Indian scout, which with a few mods puts out 120 at the rear wheel and 0 to 100 in 3.2 - this from a heavier cruiser. I'd think these will probably be a collectible in time.

    Hit The Dirt on an Indian

    It's Indian, one the best brands on the market. I should know, I own one lol. They do make amazing bikes though.
