Hi Gents,
I have an old Bose Audio system that Iím giving away for free as itís been collecting dust for years. Itís about 18 years old but it could be used as a good kit to set up in the man shed when working on your bike. Last time It was used it worked ok a few years ago.
Itís a freebie so first in best dressed. Photo on photo page.

Well, I flipped a coin and the farm won. Its now home for me, a lot of coronas (beer type) and my EXC300.
Down side - my daughter ,son in law and two kids will be there as well.
Good side - I get a riding buddy.
Sorry I can't call a ride for the rest.

Good vids Marty. I was starting to get sick of Netfix so was a welcome change. Capel looks Flatish but I think it would be a hoot on the 500 in winter, have to tag along for a ride after this CV Shit is over. Andy Good to see that you are still alive and kicking.

Hi Guys.

I haven't be able to ride for a while due to Osteo. Found out when I fractured my spine at work. Cause of it being early is unknown, I'm not that old. Have looked in on this site of my good friend to at least feel I was still there in sprit. We all can do that in these times.

I'm so boarded I'm going to find my garmin and enter some more tracks, tweak and have a look at the youtube chnnel to se if I can dress it up a bit. It's some thing positive. What are others doing?

My two cents worth... Pounce and others are on the money, common sense applies here. Small groups and apply the rules that we have been asked to do with social gathering
Bungaís point is valid. If lock down happens and this virus takes off and hospitals are full dealing with what they have to, going out for a ride probably not the smartest choice
Lets hope that this doesnít drag out for to long and things go back to normal
Until then stay safe and hopefully not to long before we can get out to Woky for a ride and maybe a camp out : )
Cheers

JNR, yeah think its more that they a proper recreational event venues so have to follow guidelines.
I haven't been in contact with a single person since I bought new bike, i took my lad out to Pinjar yesterday and there were still people there, just didnt park near anyone or come in contact with anyone. Its all pretty serious but totally manageable if everyone is sensible and keeps there distance, thats just my take on it. Hopefully get some bike time in soon.

Iím hearing ya Bikemad but MX tracks are a non profitable show the kids canít even train in small groups or anything, at the end of year the money goes back into the club to maintain etc they are not allowed to profit & pocket money.

Even our gym up at work is closed & thatís free no membership etc

You might be staring at that bike in the garage for abit

Mx tracks are a business though so will fall under government rulings, open space enduro riding would not surely.
Can't handle not riding, I'll go farking mental. :-(

Just forget it, not worth the risk and if someone did come off and get injured in the group you would have no choice but to make contact to administer first aid. The season is over.

Just be sensible about it.
If you or someone you've seen recently feels crook, don't go.
No beers at the pub after, they're closed anyway
Take your own food & drink
Keep your distance when gearing up etc
There are reports (snopes.com says it's 50/50 true/false) of contracting it from bowser pump handle, so wear gloves when getting fuel & pay at the pump if you can.

or, just don't go out at all & think of the compromised people.

Dont get caught ;-)
I cant see how 4 or 5 guys out in the middle of nowhere in riding gear and helmets is a threat to anyone, unless you crash into each other you are rarely closer than about 10 mtrs. Safe measures like no hand shakes and bring your own beer means zero contact. Can even park further away.
My new bike is calling my name so its gonna get ridden .

Cap the rides sounds good or we can take off at different times.

Was at the airport today thousands in one room planes full as, I donít know what to follow & these are all indoors & we ride out doors with gloves etc think what we do is ALOT safer.

I see that PAR has cancelled all events for the near future. Coronas' timing is a bit shit because riding season is just around the corner.

Should we be following suit or would our smaller ride numbers allow us to use separation rules to reduce the risks?

we could do stuff like rider number cap, 4m seperation, no hand shaking ect.

What do others think?
