  1. We ended up staying at Charnwood, east Lima road...right at the end. No 5 star retreat..but shower was great.., bunks were good..plenty of heaters..log fire..and you could not be closer to the bush..out the gate and boom, you're there. I'd recommend it if starglen not an option. Auscamp: Charnwood.
  2. That's awesome guys... just what I was after...many thanks
  3. Thanks man.. appreciate the detail.
  4. Thanks. No I just mean in general. Do they have warm showers etc? So bloody cold. I'm comparing star glen to a motel.. loving the idea of a good bed and warm shower. Trying to get a picture of whether it's more like camping or..a motel kn private property
  5. Anyone stayed there recently..? What's it like..?
  6. Delete please mods. Thanks
  7. Good inputs guys...thanks...looks like I'll keep my Berg [emoji2]
  8. What's 'the downsides' to running a 2T up there..?
  9. [emoji2] Speaking from experience here or theory?
  10. Have a KTM 300tpi 2t and a Berg 501 4 banger. I keep the 501 just for high country stuff. For a few reasons... contemplating doing some mods to the 300 2t to make it a viable high country cruiser.. What I'm wondering is...has anyone done it..does it work...is it viable etc. I'm not after advice on how to make it work..mods to do etc..more so hoping someone can speak from actual experience.
  11. Got invited to an off forum ride at Dargo on the weekend with some non dirtriderz. Just sharing an update on Dargo etc. We stayed at the Dargo River in...wierd..the whole place is shut...there was literally just 4 of us staying in the Wentworth cabin..which as awesome..plenty of hot water and heaters etc..nice n warm. Dargo pub... interesting! You have to book and it's 100% table service only..food, drinks, everything. You take your sear..and don't move until you're leaving the pub. Actually, it was a great setup. They're really working well with all the covid19 stuff, impressive. Meals were great. The general store is open and they've changed it a bit since Covid-19.. it's nice, as usual. We did a loop out to the east and then a loop up to the fire lookout tower at the pinnacles via billy's . awesome tracks everywhere. Happy to share a GPX if anyone is going. When you are there be SUPER careful of people coming the opposite way. I actually had a head on (slow speed thankfully) with a guy coming the other way(dirtbike). The folks at the gen store told me last weekend there were 4 x 4wds flat trailered out from collisions on the tracks... Be careful. Seems everyone is super keen and over excited. It actually wasn't really that busy this weekend just gone(the whole area)..I would say at 20% of the busiest I've seen it.. apparently on the long weekend it was madness. Pretty sure camping out the back of the pub is not open yet. I had asked re this a while back and was advised it's not. We didn't see anyone there this weekend. Billy goats bluff track... - loads of bull dust/powder tight the bottom...wierd. - from about 2/3 the way up the second part (after helipad) it is very chopped out, loose and kaos. I got up..it's doable...but I was certainly very busy for sure! It's very 'steppy' in one section where 4wds have chopped it out. - spoke with the DELWP people on Friday..they said it's getting a bit dangerous(for 4wds) and it is the next track on their list of tracks to fix..got the feeling they would have a dozer on it in the next few weeks. Weather was sensational...no snow. Friday was just sublime. Rivers are up... wouldn't go anywhere near crooked River etc till after winter now. Head on down...support the town (and others) so they're always a place we can go and have a great time. They've done it tough.. with the fires and then covid19 but their attitudes are great and they're very much open for business and welcoming us all back. The hut in the pics is Waller's hut ...tiny rover crossing just before which was easy. Tracks down and around this were mint. https://www.khuts.org/index.php/the-huts/vic-huts/931-wallers-huts
  12. Looks like Yaz all had a super ride... I'm just tucking into Indian and it's 28°C in da house. Someone has a nice Rooftop tent tho..#envy
  13. I saw a video about a guy making gears out of nylon...strong as..still no good?
  14. Thanks man...can you ask him what forum/chat group etc he finds most helpful. It's a bit like being sent in to space with a hammer and a toothpick and trying to work out how to make cheery pie..and whilst you know tons of people have done it before..you're like..well where are they all.!
  15. wondering if anyone else on here has gotten or is planning to get in to 3D printing..? recently picked myself up a Ender 5 Pro - want to use to make little brackets and such nik naks.
