  1. OK, thanks for that. Backpack is definitely easiest option for me. I saw some warnings about not carrying fuel in a backpack, but probably not a huge issue if I take care and make sure to empty ASAP.
  2. I'll be using a fuel bladder for the first time next weekend, and I'll looking for some advice on where/how to attach it to the bike. The bladder is a 3.5 litre desert fox and the bike is a crf250x. I guess the obvious location is over the rear guard, but just looking for some info from those that have done this before. Thanks.
  3. Excellent report toysrus. It was really great to meet you guys. I really appreciated your patience and advice. I think I'm kind of glad I bailed out when I did...
  4. A big thanks to Macca for organising this. I really enjoyed the ride and the company. Thanks also to those who helped out sweeping and adding some muscle power when required.
  5. I just bought a pair of K4 Pods and had my first ride in them today. I was worried about them being bulky, but after a few minutes I forgot I was wearing them. They are more comfortable than the hinged guards I was wearing before. Very happy so far. The new X-Frame Leatt braces look very similar but use a geared hinge instead of the ligaments in the Pods.
  6. Yeah big thanks to Greasa and Wayward for leading this one. I didn't know what to expect for my first Dirtriderz ride, but I had a great day and looking forward to the next one.
  7. Well done for getting it sorted BigFella. I did mine at Heatherton. Feels good to have it done. Can't wait to go riding this weekend.
  8. I just had mine inspected this morning. I had everything wired up including a cheap LED number plate light from ebay. None of it was checked though. I guess the question is whether you want to risk the inspection fee.
  9. I needed to go through the carb and give it a good clean, but it's running well now. It seemed like a good idea to head to the MX track for a first test. First time on a track in 30 years came as a bit of a shock. Anyway the bike and I both survived, so rec reg next week and then I'll be looking for some trails to get started on.
  10. Cheers mate. Sounds like you're having a blast. It's alive. Running a bit rough at idle, but hoping that's just a matter of dirty pilot jet or mixture screw adjustment. Booked in for the 4th for rec reg inspection, so should be in action after that.
  11. I got my engine back together last night after a looong wait for my piston to arrive. Fingers crossed I'll be able to get her fired up tonight and then I just need to get the rego sorted out. I can't wait to get out there.
  12. I will be following this thread. The anodising on my fork uppers is pitted, and the price I've been quoted doesn't seem to bad to get them stripped back and re-done.
  13. Hi Macca, I was looking into the idea of heading to Toolangi and came across this. Thought you might be interested. Trail Bike Riding – Toolangi and Black Range State Forest
  14. There's a DT180z at this site that looks like it has the same dimensions. If it's ergonomics you're interested in it may help.
  15. Welcome. It seems like there are a few of us getting back into it after many years off. I had a YZ80L back in the day. That's it in my avatar at Broadford many years ago.
