No2: Watching Gypsy climb many many hills that look impossible over the years

No3: Buzzo giving me a ear full (not too long ago:ph34r:) when I wanted to take the silver/chicken track on a Wombattle day. Turned out to be one of the best Hard Enduro rides I've done. Terrain was amazing, so bloody grateful for the needed talking to :D

How many years have you been riding for  ? 7 Years dirt bikes, 14 years road bikes

What was your very first bike ? Dirt Bike - 2010 Yamaha YZ450F (worst decision for a first dirt bike ever), Road Bike - Aprilia RS125

What is your current bike ? 2013 KTM 300 XC-W

Do you have a childhood bike you would like to buy and restore ?  ( if yes, what is it ? ) Always wanted to restore a road legal version of the Honda Z50. Would be crazy fun hooning around the roads on one of them.

Are you a 2 stroke or 4 stroke person ? Have owned both and love both in different situations. Am mostly a sole single track rider now so 2T all the way for that. 

Where was your favorite forum ride ? Any of the RCHA rides are fun.

What is your favorite forum memory ? Latest ride with ToysRUs and DoubleVee on a weekday ride. Was a crazy day. Also a ride back in I would think 2015 with JT and a few other awesome dirtriderz dudes from his place to pauls range and toolangi where I was so far out of my depth on my Yamaha compared to the others as I had only just started riding and had no idea what I was doing. I had posted up about anyone wanting to do a Level 1 ride and JT messaged me to say just come on his Level 3 ride and they will sort me out and help me out. Fell off about a million times, kick started the bloody thing which hated starting all day, couldn't afford tyres so the rear was an actual slick tyre and couldn't get up any sort of hill that had clay, ran out of fuel, JT rode home and got me some from his place and chucked a mad wheelie next to me on the way home for about 500m with a 20L jerry can in between his legs, full body cramps afterwards and it hooked me to dirt bike riding since. Best day ever and I'm not sure if I would have stuck with dirt bike riding had it not been for that day as I didn't know any one else with dirt bikes and had just been tooling around on my own at Dissa on the fire roads which was pretty boring.

How many years have you been a forum member for ? 5 Years

Have you made any/many good friendships via the forum ? Always make friends on rides but don't have any close mates off the forum, but thats probably as I only really get to about 2 Dirtriderz rides a year as I can't ride weekends ever. 

What would you like to see as part of the forum in the future ? More weekday rides (which I was endeavoring to start posting up and attend before the beervirus put a stop to riding rather than riding on my own) and more just general topics and discussions on the forum so it is actually worth visiting to read other than just looking to see if people are riding.

What is your favorite forum memory ? RCHGFA rides are awesome. Doing something you enjoy for a great cause

How many years have you been a forum member for ? 5yrs

What would you like to see as part of the forum in the future ? Love it as it is, but more people putting hand up to lead a ride. It's not hard just post and the regulars will help if you are unsure of what is expected. I would post my Hazelwood rides in the future but from what I have seen 80% of the tracks are gone so I've been exploring another place. I just don't know it well enough to post rides.
