  1. I’m 5’10 and for the woods my crf250r is still to tall for me as I’m kind of tippy toed on it. I thought setting the sag to my weight etc would make a difference but to have the sag set for bike I actually had to tighten it which is strange because the previous owner was much heavier than me. I measured 108mm weighted sag with me on the bike and in the Manuel it suggests 100mm and I didn’t want it any firmer than it already was so I relived it to around 125mm I know you shouldn’t lower the bike with sag but my feet are now much closer to the ground and the suspension feels a lot more forgiving and soft. Yet to ride the bike yet though.  Is this ok or will it be dangerous to ride? I watched a video of someone lowering a bike with this technique and he got hammered for being dangerous. 
  2. I’ve been searching online and can’t seem to find actual genuine Honda parts for my bike, there’s a few parts I need and I want genuine parts. Also are oem the exact same as genuine parts?
  3. Anyone know if I can ride there?

    Easy, flat beginner places to ride?

    Yeah I can totally understand why mate in the wet it is very very challenging! Where did you unload from? If it was marginal rd there is some flat tighter stuff not to far from there Yeah it was marginal rd

    We did find some pretty nice firetrails but then all of a sudden they would turn into rutted 4x4 tracks that were just way out of my level even the singles got really hard when we found a few. I probably wont go back there for a while, but deffiently not in the wet
  6. Went for a drive couple days ago and got to this spot out the back of st andrews called marshalls rd there was a gate and it said "Kinglake National Park" was just wondering has anyone ever ridden this state forest before? its south of kinglake reason i ask, its very close to my house and looks very easy for me as a beginner just fire trails from what i saw

    That would be awesome berg cheers, yeah Toolangi was scary at times for me lol
  10. Tallarook was great as a beginner with nice flowing narrow tracks and fairly easy fire trails, went to Toolangi yesterday and that was painful for me, it was wet to which didn’t help but it really put me off the place I kept falling off. wheres some good beginner riding spots?

    Can I ride in reserves?

    Checked today about 3 of the reserves it’s a no go for all of them. Signs clearly stating no motorbikes. Such a shame really nice tracks there

    Can I ride in reserves?

    Can I ride in reserves?

    Fairly close to me is a town called Panton Hill, there are 100’s if not 1000’s of acres of bush land that I think is reserve land. It was old gold mining area, there are many tracks there which I assume are fire trails would I be ok riding there licensed and rego of course
