    My mates reported the Albury Saturday ride was excellent, but only enduro section. Sunday was Burkes pass and despite this being the third time on this property the track was completely different to anything I have done before but I did remember the odd bit her and there. Weather was perfect but the course was very rocky and dusty. Doing the hill climbs, you could not see any of the rocks because of the dust from the guy ahead. I am still feeling crook from the covid so only had the energy for one 51kms lap, but we all felt that was enough. Scenery was awesome. Watching the weather for the Craig Pickering ride-looking a bit dodgy atm.

    7 day forecast I saw shows 24 degrees by 4pm with a 3% chance of rain during the day, my rear tyre is pretty fucked but as long as it's dry, I don't want to put the new one I have on

    Trying the GT516KX next time round with a GT216AA fatty front

    No, but tyres are just a consumable like chains, oil, fuel, if I have spare cash which is fuck all of the time I'll buy them and stash them away until needed

    I haven't tried Golden tyres before but the reviews I have seen were very good and I need something road legal which the very good Bridgestone E50 Extreme rear and X31 front aren't

    It's true I can be and I don't pay attention to cosmetics or cleaning as much as I should on either myself or the bike, but my bikes get whatever they need to be reliable

    You need to organise a weekend away and come down Dave, maybe the Waiau 2 day next year ?

    Yeah I do intend to get down, but I failed my 'ride in the garden' test last month. Going to try a 'ride in paddock' test this weekend , but it will be a while before I can do a real dirtride, even maintrack, may be a year. This is proving to be a hard road.

    Well a mate took me to mx club carpark to ride around on the grass on my Beta. First time I've successfully ridden in 4.5 months.

    Was OK but needed to work on my left turns as my right arm does, or rather doesn't do stuff properly when extended. I got there and could then do figure 8s after a while at crawling pace. Was quite happy with that.

    Had to relearn looking up. More on that.
    Rode to end of driveway to blast up deserted gravel road to dead end to get taste of speed and judge if I could cope. All was pretty good except at the 'intersection' out the gate where I looked down a bit.

    Need to do some more exercises to get rid of vertigo that onsets looking down. If I can do that I can ride my roadbike. I can't stand on my feet long enough for the Trials bike, or even the dirt bike, and fatigue would make it pointless for now.

    Little steps.

    If you live alone and get an infection, get to a hospital especially if vomiting or no urine, or at least among other people if unsure. My wife saved my life phoning ambulance as I couldn't. 1 in 100 people get sepsis. I'd never heard of it really.

    What caused the infection?

    3 Laps today, 101km, did a couple of easy enduro loops and one simple one was giving me flashbacks to my first helicopter ride, I don't think this track is as good as the last location

    Couple of real boggy bits but not too bad to get through, found a guy 10km from the end on the last lap who'd run out of gas, stopped at a Marshall point to tell them but it'd already been radioed in

    Steve on his new KTM went down like a bag of spuds when he washed out the front on a rock turning into a gateway but luckily enough no damage to him or the bike

    Pretty happy riding up out of a section that two guys better than me struggled with, fairly good day over all

    No idea really. Sore gland in throat after a couple of days with almost a cold, but not as bad. Tried to get appointment when throat got sore. No chance. Told to ring back next day and try my luck.
    Had a visit from about 5 paramedics at 5 in the morning, and would you believe it? My first ambulance ride. I have no recollection for 2 weeks when i was mostly comatose.

    We ended up pulling the plug-weather looked too dodgy. Sounds like it was ok. We had a good ride out at the bike park, boy was it hot!
