  1. Welcome Mario Best seat covers going around and a top bloke [emoji106]
  2. Well done BenG. Good effort mate [emoji106]
  3. Have you had a ride on a new 300 2 stroke? Most level 3, level 3+ riders are on strokes because of how light and nimble they are in the tight stuff. They also don't stall as much as a 4stroke. I know the Betas have a low seat height which you would need to consider. I have heard the sherco is a real nice bike but does vibrate a fair bit compared to a ktm or Husqvarna. I'm currently on a ktm 300 tpi and would have to say, it's a very nice bike to ride. Try test riding a few different bikes and make a decision on what you think best suits where you want your riding to head to and take it from there. All the best [emoji106]

  5. I would go off the one that offers the most protection because the weight is pretty close together. I personally wouldn't worry about a boot that was 200 grams heavier but offered more protection to my ankles. Only my opinion
  6. I tore my ACL playing soccer about 8-10 years ago. The advice I got off an AFL doctor was to get it fixed up as soon as you can becasue it'll only bother you more and more as you get older followed by arthritis. A mate of mine got a knee reco done after about 6-7 years after doing his knee and after his surgery, he got excessive bleeding in the knee and they operated on him again. They said it happen because he took so long to get it fixed. Not cheap getting it done private

  8. The day started pretty early with the meet time being 5:30, I knew Gypsy would be there at 5am so i made sure I wasn't late. Mile did run a little late but made up with some quick gearing up and we were off at exactly 6am. It was still dark as we left but wasn't long before the sun came up. Heading straight for our first climb of the day, I was already sweating from the heat. By the first hour of riding, Mile had spotted 2 or 3 deer which got him questioning whether he should have brought he's rifle instead of the 150 [emoji1787] Watching Gypsy smash every hill we come across was insane. Even jumping on the 150 and smashing everything. Ive never heard a bike ringing up a hill like today [emoji106] With a few attempts at swamp hill, Mile and I finally made it up which felt crazy. Specially Mile on that 150. That's a good effort I gotta say. After conquering all the climbs we set out to conquer, we were back at the cars by 10:30am. Good effort by all and had an absolute ball.
  9. A big thanks to Riles first off for leading a cracking ride on a beautiful day. It was my 3rd time at cobaw and I always enjoy it. So much rocks and logs to mess around on. Thanks to the guys that went sweep. Highlight of the day for me. Riles challenging Mile to a race to the bottom of a rocky hill. I was close behind to see who won. Riles gets to the bottom first, Mile stops and Riles gives him the birdy without looking back [emoji1787][emoji1787] Mile and I were in tears. It was fun trying to keep Mile behind me or trying to catch him. I stop counting after the 3rd drop but still let him know about it. First time seeing the new 2020 beta in person. Gotta say it's a very nice machine you have Bruce. I forgot to get a ride of it. Looks cool
  10. A huge thanks to Cruiser for a ripper day out. It was my first time up that way and cant wait to get back out there. Great views and some big mountains. Looking forward to seeing what other stuff you have out there [emoji106]
  11. It was kaos for me for sure lol
  12. I still can't believe how wet it was. Super slippery
  13. Thanks mate. I'll post up some pictures of the complete setup with the bike strapped for anyone having the same problem
