Transporting a bike from Adelaide to Sydney

G'day Trialsters My brother in Adelaide has an older Honda trials bike he has no use for anymore so I have laid claim to it. The bike has some mechanical challenges so I am looking forward to tinkering with it and hopefully getting it running fully again but first I need to get it to my place. Is an...

Re: 2011 Gas Gas 300 fuel ratio

Thanks Paul. I shall DEFINITELY rely on your experience (and others) regardless of what the manual says. :D
Have I mentioned how much I am loving the Gasser? :lol:

2011 Gas Gas 300 fuel ratio

G'day I had the pleasure of upgrading my bike recently and am loving riding the 2011 Gasser 300! I have a question about the fuel/oil mix to run in the bike. Some experienced people whom I respect greatly have said to run 100:1 but the Gas Gas manual for this model says 50:1. So what is the best rat...

Riding mid-week around Sydney

G'day

I would like to go for a ride during the week but the places I usually go are only open on weekends (e.g. Pacific Park). Any suggestions?

Re: Which Class??

Yes Terry, I should have thought of that. I am a long way from mastering the technique of SPLAT in clearing obstacles.

However I am very practised in the art of a SPLAT dismount from the bike when attempting an obstacle. #-o

Re: Which Class??

Thanks for the feedback JML. Yeah, I know it is difficult to say what to tackle when you haven't seen me on a bike. :) You are right in saying start out easy and work your way up, particularly when it comes to injury - I don't bounce as well as I did when I was younger, I tend to more go "SPLAT...

Which Class??

G'day After 30 years spent away from trials bikes I am just loving being back on one! Have been spending a fair bit of time out at Pacific Park, meeting people, riding some fantastic bush and being amazed by how much this "new" trials bike (2003 Sherco) can do compared to the old TY175. Ev...

Riding in Townsville

G'day My son has moved to Townsville to go to uni this year and has his Beta 200 with him. It has been a long time (30+ years) since I was in Townsville so I no longer have any "local knowledge" of where to take a trials bike. Looking for places to ride, competitions if any going and peopl...
