Hi,

Pending the installation of barkbusters and radiator guards Wednesday afternoon, I'm thinking about going for a ride South East of Jarrahadale off Albany Hwy Thursday morning if anyone is interested.
Probably an early one. Leaving Kwinana around the 6am mark to head to the ride.

Ken

I live in Kwinana. I ride a Sherco 300SEF-R. I used to ride a lot of the fun enduro events like the Adventure Rally and the Capel 200 but then kids came along and I somehow got mature for the past 8 years.
I'm getting the kids in to the sport and as a result, bought myself a bike. My skill level.... that's open to interpretation but I feel like above average. I ride within my limits.
I've been taking my boys out past Jarradale in the bush north of Metro rd to avoid built up areas and rangers. It's mainly flat ground but when a tree comes across the track, I send the kids around and attemp a not so graceful log hop. The biggest I'll try is just over a metre diameter but still honing my skills.
So I'm trying to get better at technical stuff but I'm no Graham Jarvis. This time home, I'll only have the week days to get out.
Thanks,
Ken

Ride report Ė No Warm Up

Players: KTMike, Darin, JNR, Jacko, Mash, and 2slow

Great ride on Mike's turf thanks Mike for the lead and Jacko for sweeping. It only took me about 1km to have a little lay down and at about 2km's Darin stops and says "I can smell oil" there was a quick diagnosis of oil leaking from the engine oil filler cap and an inspection found the o-ring was missing. Super Sweep Jacko leaps into action, "I've got some electrical tape we will just use it as thread tape and it will be right" and it was. We rode a good variety of tracks and terrain with almost no dust at all and it was not too hot and not too cold. Mike thought he'd show us how slippery the clay can get and did a thump slide pirouette but all good a brief pause and we were on our way again.
Good to meet Mash (Trent) who rode well and did everything Mike threw at us with ease.
Sorry about the speeding fine JNR the cops/multanova have always loved that strip of highway. That's karma for trying to fill me in.
See you on the next one.
Dave.
Thanks KTMike for inviting us into your playground, some different terrain to what we usually ride, which is good.
I am generally a slow starter who likes to work into it, but today it was fire the bike up and head straight up a gnarly hill. How many more K's have we got to go - haha.
Everyone back at the cars for a few beers is always a good day.
Thanks to Jacko with the broom on his adventure bike and for the instant O ring for my bike 
Darin
great ride today from ktmikes place. the first few ks was a bit of a rock farm but after that we did mainly single trail with nice moist trails and no dust. not much carnage except for mike going down heavily on a greasy patch on the way back. we were on the lights after the ride with dave getting two rbts in a row, but this time it was jnr's turn to be a cop magnet. thanks to ktmike for putting on a great ride and getting stack of the day.
Jacko

Awesome day out, all home safe for beers and BS after the ride.

Cheers for joining me on my ride today, I've aptly name the ride "No Warm Up".
Thanks Jacko for sweeping, JNR for stopping to pose for the one and only photo I took today, and everyone for taking to the time to laugh at my unorthodox, yet stylish dismount. I had a great ride today with a great group of riders.
Look forward to the next ride.

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone does mid week rides on here?
I do FIFO and unfortunately only home for a week this time instead of the two but the weekend I'm home for is booked so looking at going during the week when I get home on Wednesday.
I've been riding out past Jarrahdale with the kids lately but they'll be at school.

Cheers,
Ken

Great ride down Byford weíll lead Mike, it cost me $200 & 2 points less then 2 kms from ur house, as we were speaking about getting pulled over on the way hm from rides lately & breatho I played it smart & had 3 light beers & blew just under, never in my life have I been spoken to by the 2 biggest wankers of cops Iíve ever come across, sorry for language but they were saying u deaf mate use ya mirrors we been chasing u for ages, WTF as itís down the road bud & Darrin drive past me & he cud c it was only down the road from were I left as they threw the ticket at me he said good luck getting hm mate ur on the rise.
Hm safe but very angry, I wish these cops wud put more effort in catching bike theifs & drug dealers rather than focusing on making financial quoters
