    I wonder if anyone could give me some input on this... Could anyone recommend a spot that I could navigate to in order to test ride my bike. I am not looking get lost in trails or be out all day. I simply want to know if there's an area I can take my bike for a test ride. Closest area to me is Kinglake west. I want to just rock up, unload the bike and test her under a few different conditions. Would you recommend going to somewhere like Kinglake west, or heading to an MX club instead? Bike has current rec reg (without mirror fitted). If there is a trail area you could recommend, could you perhaps also indicate where I should park the car. I have not ridden off road in Victoria therefor I'm not sure where to start. Thank you
  3. Hi all, Just want to confirm with some people more knowledgeable than myself. If I order an aftermarket radiator hose set will it cover the worn hose shown in the picture? Thank you Edit: I realise this is likely a glaringly obvious one but I just want to make sure

    Hello all! New member here from Melbourne. I've been out of the dirt bike game since I was 17 years old when I used to race/trail ride. Been riding street bikes ever since but always longed to have my motocross bike back. Now I'm 34, got myself into shape and have made a purchase that I'm very happy with. I've just bought a 2008 CRF450R. Have been stripping her down for the past week, finding parts that need replacing/maintenance and plan to put in a couple of solid months of restoring before I make it out for a ride. Call me crazy but I missed the maintenance side of things quite a bit while riding street bikes. The bike I've purchased already has rec rego so I can't wait to join some rides in the next few months. I'm looking to join some level 1 rides to gauge my ability and go from there. Have had some broken bones and injuries since I was young so I don't plan on thinking I can ride like I used to. What a fantastic forum so far... Been lurking around and enjoying what I've found.
