83 rides: Die Hard II

Maybe we should consider making this a password protected website, so we can actually use it as a forum to discuss rides among ourselves instead of using txt messages. Most of the other ride groups do this and the trail bike riding environment has probably changed enough to warrant this.

Tommy, if you have just washed it, it is probably a bad connection on an electrical plug, I would disconnect and reconnect all electrical connections and give them a spray with a silicone spray that is compatible with electrical circuits.

If it started while you were riding it may need to be hooked up on to the test machine.

A few technical issues with posts in the last 24 hours.
I've had to do some changes behind the scenes.
If your stuff was changed you'll have got an email from me.

Hey Bunga I'll look into a camp out down this way but most probably not on the dates you have posted. Lots of logging been done down Woky/Brunswick way and Nannup and with doing the Finke and not doing much bush riding going to take a little bit to see what's changed. I'll hit up Pete 450 as well and see what we can sort out and keep you all posted.

Hooters.
Good report.
You were too modest to mention your log jump half way up the hill.
Do it again and I will pat you on the back.

However, I note no comment on my suggestion about some new crusty rules.
Now days as you know, its all about making rules for minority groups.

1.pensioners don't have to help push co riders bikes up hills.
2.pensioners don't have to write reports (unless they want to)
3.pensioners don't have to jump a log just because the lead rider was crazy enough to tackle it.
4.pensioners can make up new rules if the old rules don't suit.

I did add a few since our discussion.
Am sure I can get support from the other pensioners to push it through

That was fun yesterday even though our Hooters forgot for a second that we're all over 50 & took us up that hilly single track.
More pics in the report & I'll see if any of the video is worthy & will post it if so.

Cheers to all

Oh yeah, what coolant are we all using?

"grumpy ole men hills tour"
players: Hooters, Huskymike, Pounce, TooSlow , Jacko, Tommy

I called a Northern hills ride mid week, It's close to mine and after 2 days of riding a cruise around the hills would be awesome. I've been riding single track hard endure with a pretty young crew of lads, so normally I've got the "masters class" well and truly wrapped up but Saturdays crew was loaded with old man trickery, lies and treachery. I was a touch late, and the mythical wide load ( that no one has ever seen...) was responsible for Dave also rocking up a bit tardy. I was leading, so decided to mix it up and take random trails as I found them, then meander back to the cars. Super sweep Jacko was bringing up the rear. We started on a few short single tracks actually pretty close to the cars, then we dropped into a creek that closed off an turned into Ezberg, every one was now warmed up ready to ride! Some cool bush bashing turned a bit tight so we bashed thru to a road and continued on just taking random trails, a bit of directional advice saw us over to the hill section for a play. We dodged a few 4wd's and a couple of bikes and followed trails till we hit the boundary. We found a marked single track that started off really cool and snaked thru the bush for a couple of k's and finished with a challenging greasy rocky jump up that had the air ripe with swearing and the tang of coolant. We had a break admiring the view and resting up and then decided to bee line back to the beer. Due to our gentlemanly start we got back to the cars and the beer shortly after 2pm lessons were learned due to Carls mishap and the bikes were loaded with caution, Pikey used his point an shoot method, which works....mostly....for him. Us mortals used more traditional methods. So the day was a wrap, beers were drank and lies told. Great day out thanks for sweeping Jacko, and the directional pointers from the crew.

Ciao Hooters

ps. it needs to be recorded in crusty lore that the oldest crusty was the only one to follow me up the creek, onya Pikey!!!!

Good ride today from the banned one.6 was a good number.
It flowed well and almost seemed as though you knew where you were going.
Leading the ride and supplying the pensioner with beer is as good as it gets.

The few challenges today reminded us of rides from days gone by ,where it was not always easy.

Thanks Jacko for sweeping.You can have a break any day and no one would complain.
Dave you are keen coming from Mandurah.Maybe next time a bit closer.

A nice hot bath and a Corona should do the trick.

You right WrfPaul, spoke to quite a few guys who just go up to help out each at the Finke and cost them quite a few bucks in fuel money and like you said they keep going back just love the environment and atmosphere of the Finke race and they have a ball
