  1. I’m pretty sure to qualify you need to be 30% down on the same month of the previous year. We’re in construction, on sites across melbourne. I’ve got no idea how the 25% work force will be worked out. Is it 25% of each company on site, or will the builders pick and choose which subbies they want on site every day? And expect people to be on call for when they want them? There will hopefully be a lot more info released in the next couple of days, but if the last few months are anything to go by, there will be plenty of grey areas.
  2. There must be a lack of bikes available for the amount of demand out there. Mate of mine sold a mint PW50 last weekend in 7 Minutes of advertising it!!
  3. I went there a couple of weeks ago with 6 other dads and kids from local junior footy club. It was my first time there and we all had a good time. A lot of them are going back next week but I can’t unfortunately. The big dorm room was shut but the bar and restaurant was still open. People were trying to social distance but it wasn’t really enforced and it was quite busy. The communal BBQ was supposedly shut but people were still using it. I was the only dad wanting a half serious ride so I ended up riding by myself most of the time, and I didn’t leave the property for that reason. I still had a good ride though. I did 60 odd km for the day (a few km of that was following my young bloke around )which was pretty much every track, some multiple times and some in reverse. The only track I didn’t do was a steep goat track out the back that I couldn’t get up. It’s definitely no 5 star resort, but as a place to go to ride, have a hot shower, have a feed, it ticks all the boxes. I’d definitely go back. Preferably with others to ride with so we can venture off the property. (Just tried uploading a couple of photos but Tapatalk keeps trying to make me join as vip)
  4. Did a ride couple of weeks ago we did 105km. I hit reserve with around 1-2km left of the ride. Still half a litre at least left in the tank. It was probably 50/50 tight stuff to flowing more open stuff.
  5. I’m in construction and bought myself a ‘quoting vehicle’ [emoji6] to get out and inspect jobs. Full reg. Bikes are much faster in traffic. At least that’s my reasoning if anyone asks. I reckon it’s better to tell your accountant after you’ve done it then they can deal with it.
  6. Reminds me of the old 98 model 250exc I had back in the day. Same shade of “KTM Grey”
  7. There’s a fair bit of good stuff over towards eildon from rubicon. I bought a van up there a year or so ago and I’ve also been trying to get a loop put together. Each time I go out I find something new, and I was making good progress before we were locked down. I would be mostly riding 2 valleys over from rubicon, but the tracks seem to be endless around that area so I’m sure you won’t struggle finding some good tracks. I went on a group ride years ago from eildon to rubicon and back and the leader stashed fuel at rubicon, so it’s a fair distance. If you did in reverse you could fuel up at eildon. Happy to share some stuff I know at some stage if you head over that far. Good luck with it. Part of the adventure is the exploring.
  8. Yes, just the valve inserts.
  9. Yeh I agree it’s money well spent. I originally went in just for heavier springs and a revalve, and Darren said the biggest gain would be from the cone valves, and it wasn’t a huge amount more to do so. From memory the whole set up was just over $900 front and rear.
  10. I had Tracrite set up my 2020 Ktm 300 and he put his cone valves in the forks as well as his bladder kit shock mod in the rear. Also heavier springs to suit. I’m very happy with it, but I never rode the bike in stock form so I don’t know what I’m comparing to. I’m also just a weekend worrier that doesn’t push it to its potential. Not sure what year your bike is but this set up is what he was doing on the 17 and on Xplor forks.
  11. PS: I tried posting this in the ride reports section but it kept telling me I wasn’t logged in or didn’t have permission. Not sure why
  12. Big thanks to Pepperjack for putting this ride on today it was awesome to get out again. Thanks to Mr Pink for leading the first half before he had to leave, and PJ for leading the second half. We had absolutely perfect weather today. Couldn’t have asked for better. It was a tad fresh when we set off but that didn’t last long once we warmed up. We started with 9 at the meet point, but poor old Roland forgot his helmet, so we were then 8. 2 others bailed at midday with Mr Pink so we were reduced to 5. Not long after Mojos bike started running a bit rough so he bailed to the cars. Then we were 4 with PJ Beeaye Marko and myself, and we pumped out another few ks. No get offs, and no major dramas, and the ride flowed very well. Thanks to Mess for sweeping first half and Beeaye for the second half. Much appreciated. Around 65km covered by the end. Can’t wait to do it again. Till next time [emoji106]
  13. First Dirtriderz ride for me was the Christmas ride 2017 at Tallarook.
  14. That’s it. You’re up.
