    I had an awesome day at Waipara on Sunday. 2 laps, 2 enduro sections on the mighty KDX200. That loam in the forestry sections was magic. Traction for Africa, unlike that sandy shite at Amberley. The first 2 enduro sections were very straight forward but like you said Kick, No 3 was the section of doom! My new fav ride.

    Yeah funny that when they're only a few KM down the road from each other

    Only 5% of them do it so there's a 95% chance I wont have to, you'll need that Beta to keep up with the Mighty IT200 anyway

    I rode the Beta 300 from the end of the Forestry back to the carpark, quite cool, awesome brakes and power, seat like granite

    Waikari ride this weekend, "Challenging main track" they need to work on their wording, that doesn't sound attractive

    So the main track wasn't really that challenging, only one shitty downhill with a bog at the bottom but not that hard, some good riding and big uphills

    We had z Fidel too. Enduro loop would have been awesome in February. Was eye opening in November.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    Yes, I enjoyed that ride. We did 3 loops of the main loop. One of our riders did all the enduros. I made it down the steep downhill the first time but stuffed up the wee bog at the bottom.... It was closed on loops 2 and 3. I think somebody got hurt. The rescue chopper seemed busy!

    It was open when we went through it on loop 2 which was just after we were talking to you, did it easy compared to the first lap when I dropped the bike right at the bottom and flooded it, once it was running I went through it with no problem, all the boggy bits seem to be hard underneath so no real traction problems
