    OK, so after that hoon with the boy the pump seal failed again, so I brought another new one and it seems to be holding and the water system isn't pressurising so bugger it time for new tires and uni filter... tomorrow will be a big test day... My first organised trail ride... Bets are on as to if I break... The bike breaks... Or both...

    Cool stuff.

    Bit of rain here overnight and my tyres are a bit shagged. Holding out fitting replacement in garage for a particular ride. Might go sharpen these again with the flat blade on the renovator tool.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    I get a lot of that

    I have another one to put together plus a couple of 175

    It's been 12-14 years since I rode this one and took it apart to rebuild, it's had a small shakedown run so tomorrow is a bit of a test for it

    shove ya FARKING ENDURO track right up were the sun dont shine...

    yeah well detouring onto the enduro corse was bit of a balls up, one of the guys said the 2nd enduro is ok give it a spin... yeah well he missed the 2nd and was talking about the 3rd corse... fuck me it was a hiking track and at that ya be on all fours climbing up n down, shit sakes it would be a mission for a trials bike with the worlds #1 on it... but hey beat SVboy through it didn't help he went the wrong way and ended up down a crevasse LOL... silly old bugger, naaaa, it was awesome, but i wont rush into another enduro... as for the trail ride... my 1st time on a chook chaser other than a few test rides up the local river... bloody magic, a bit of everything and scenery you would never usually get to see...
    Only issue i had was the big bore boys passing on heavy stones and flicking fist sized rocks an my knees and lid, fucking hurt ya knobs...so whens the next trail ride SV...
    ohh and Kickaha, ask diesel pig if he need a lowering kit, LOL... awesome dismount at the top... and diesel thanks for the "ya not my biggest fan, but don't do the enduro" speach, why didn't I listen LOL

    was told by a bike following that the kdx smelt like it was burning box oil... bugger watch this space for a rebuild as the crank seals are replaced

    I've found the enduro sections a bit hit and miss as to how hard they are so I just don't bother with them anymore, although I actually found the 200 a bit lighter and more manageable than my 250 so maybe next time

    Diesel Pig was on this thing, which having ridden it is a bit of a weapon but needs a little work, of course I smashed him on the mighty IT200 especially downhill
