  1. Had a bit of a rough start to the day with my float needle being stuck open, had to dismantle half the bike to fix it and started to worry I wouldn't be ready on time. After fixing the carb the bike wouldn't start, I tipped it upside down with the plug out and a coffee cup worth of petrol came out! It started 1st kick after that and ran like a charm all day. I really enjoyed the ride, it was great to get out and hit some trails with a good group. I managed to bin it twice and hit my head on a low branch pretty hard. Seeing as how I haven't been riding much at all lately I was feeling it the next day, I love it and I want more. Just like to thank CV for putting the ride on and beeaye for patiently sweeping all day. I'm definitely keen to come back to Chewton soon.
  2. Yeah totally agree with you about the bolt hoff. If that's their opinion then for one they're admitting that their product is sub par and secondly where does it say in the workshop manual that the motor requires a full dismantle/reassemble after the warranty period is over?
  3. Big thanks to Coggs, 2t4me amd Buzz for for leading the rides and thank you to everyone else who chipped in with the cooking and stuff, these rides are great and wouldn't happen without you. I had some good fun on Coggs's lvl2 ride, good tracks, good crew and the ride was flowing well. Dazzas battery was a bit of a fizzer, very lucky we got that thing out asap with no damage done to the new steed and good to see a modern dirt bike that will still run without a battery. After having a long break from riding it was great to get out and catch up with everyone and enjoy a few beers after the ride.
  4. Gun rider wants a 2 stroke? Get a YZ250, it may not look exotic but "he" will spend more time riding it with a big grin than looking at it. Dirt cheap in the second hand market too.
  5. Congratulations guys and well done! With all the effort and training you've had to put in which always comes with increased risk, you've done really well making it over there and such an awesome experience that will be hard to top, I can't wait to hear all about it out on the trail. Well done!
  6. Hello hello Thoroughly enjoyed the vid Bruce, looks like you guys had a great day out, got me frothing at the gills...

  8. That sucks Noods, time to upgrade to a carb 2 stroke I reckon
  9. Can't give too much info yet but had an mri this arvo, won't know anything till Monday probably. Was on crutches yesterday but thanks to a nice cocktail of drugs I'm able to hobble around without them today. It doesn't feel like it wants to collapse when I stand on it so that's a good sign.
  10. I forgot to thank everyone for helping me load up, thanks guys
  11. Thanks to Cruiser, Nath and Cujo for lead and sweep duties, was a good ride while it lasted (for me), had my mojo going for a little while there until I lost the front wheel and basically hit the deck doing the splits and twisted my left knee. Just kicking back with a beer and an ice pack, a little disappointed and really bad timing for an injury but I've had worse, still better go to the doctor tomorrow. Until next time...
  12. Seeing 3 of my workmates get sacked because there's "no work" only for them to be replaced by casuals 2 days later, casuals who are being ripped off by getting the same hourly rate as the full timers mind you
  13. I'm hearing ya Sabo, had it all last week, was hoping to get on this ride but didn't want to make everyone else sick
