Fairly new rider who is about to start riding his first ever two stroke


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am fairly new to riding in a bush, own a wr250r and about to get my first two stroke (no engine breaking is gonna be interesting ;) ). Hoping to pick up some knowledge and get on a ride or two (subject to bloody lockdowns) to improve my skills.

 

Regards,
Chris

welcome augul.......before the can of worms start about what 2 stroke to get.... how long you been on the wr250  for?

Got it at the start of last year … so was able to squeeze in few rides in between lockdowns and a High Country ride too :) 

The crew I usually ride with tend to go right tracks  … all very good riders but 1 :)

Hit up the gang for suggestions on where to find flowing tracks in your region. Get seat time, jump on an easy L1- L2 ride.... Coming into winter the basic thing is not to run too much tire pressure. Enjoy!

Hey Chris, there will be a LVL2 Neerim ride with a Pub visit afterwards, so keep an eye out for that one.... Filled up pretty quick last time too....

Will do :) thanks for letting me know.
Gotta wait for the lockdown to be lifted cause there is nowhere to ride in SE burbs at present.

nice bike mate....that will get you up and down way beyond a level 1 rider can do....as gypsy said jump on a level 1 or 2 ride (not sure your capabilities) maybe 1 to start with and go from there....watch the organise a ride forum I hope to do one right up your alley in a few weeks at big river....if not a visit to neerim is on the cards... note if it is wet...it gets interesting...but you on a beta...lol

Thanks mate, I rode quite a bit of tight @ Neerim couple of months ago and absolutely loved it until the arm pump stopped me from clutching in :)
Will keep an eye out for the upcoming rides for sure.
Thanks

ok there is plenty of tight stuff at varying levels at neerim.... keep an eye out... justforfun knows a good 2 to 2 +loop, if you are starting out it will keep you honest.....i found some stuff more level 1+ by pure chance...

J4F i can show you (i hope i can remember) so you can run a lower level every now and then...you could incorporate it it into your loop...its near the quarry section
