Did you hear me bagging out Barge on the interwebz when he tried to hump that tree on the go?... ohh, hang on I did do that .

Yes all right,, I donged myself with the pointy end of a tree branch today and I wasnt even riding the bike.

We had just peaked over the top of a really gnarly hill climb and stopped at a tree fallen across the trail at about lunch time so we thought now was as good a time as any for a lunch break...
After we scoffed down a couple of sandwiches and admired the view I decided to build up the front face of this (about 18" diameter) fallen tree with an 8>10" log that just happened to have a handy carry handle off-shoot branch sticking out of it.
The log was about 10 to 15kg and dry as, so when i had the weight off the ground the little foot long/pointy end decided to snap off recoiling the sharp point straight back through my lower lip and rattling my bottom teeth... Actually loosened the R/H lower front tooth.
Here's me standing there with blood gushing out of a 6mm diameter piercing through my lower lip and all bully could suggest is that I thread a "snakes alive" through it (he always carts a packet around) to 1: Stop the bleeding, and 2: Cancel out the taste of blood for the ride home.

A bloody good ride though, and we all lived to tell the tail.

Greg.

P.S - I have some great video footage of todays ride that I will put on this thread as soon as I can work out how to edit them.

Yeh, but in my defence, this was straight after I got back from my ride then from the hospital so I still had my "dirt bike" face on (complete with dirt)...

Anyway Wolfie - You know what they say about throwing stones and glass houses? I know what you look like mate, and it aint no oil painting

At the end of the day it all boils down to the old saying that us ugly pricks get the best looking chick's - That was true for me.

Greg.

Yeh sort of mate... Nother one going up in about 2 hours.

I still need to work out how to upload and manipulate music, and also have a problem with how to export 720p x 60fps as there doesn't seem to be an option for that in PremProCS3.
For what its worth though I will probably stick with 1080p x 30fps.
Most of the footage above was from a mates camera and seems to be quite unsaturated and colourless where the footage from the GoPro and the VioPovHD has more life and a bit of a kick to it.

Another Video

Another new video. This one is from a couple of months back - A little bit dustier then.

This is a good one for those interested in hearing the sound of the MotorradWorks CatBack Carbon muffler system as the cam is secured to the rear rack of the WaspWorks Super Tenere which left the mic about 300mm from the exhaust outlet.

Fellow adventurers are Bargenator (Graham) on board his trusty S10 (also fitted with the same exhaust system), and my Brother Mike aboard his KTM450EXC.
This was actually filmed one stop before the infamous Bargenator tree hugging incident.

Enjoy.

Greg.

The movies tuned out awesome mate, jeez, the last bit brought back the memories, it was not far after that that I ring barked that tree and killed a million ants while I was sliding down the track using my jatz crackers for brakes

Greg, I may have missed it, but how'd that shifter get straighened out, and did you have to replace it? For that kind of off roading, wouldn't a foldable shifter fit the ticket?

It straightened out very well indeed, considering the fact that the toe piece was bent 180 degree's till the tip was 10>12mm from touching back on the lever.

Bully had Quick and easy access to his long reach plug socket and a 6" long 10mm diameter piece of steel rod (socket "T" bar).
I used the rod as a lever to bend the shifter tip out about 1" then hammered (assisted by a rock) the plug socket over the tip of the toe piece and wrenched it around from there.
It felt like new after these bush mods.

Folding shift and brake levers are beneficial for any bike that see's the type of terrain where you are passing rocks and logs. I would like to have them on my bike but I havent seen them around yet.
Maybe one day if I get time to finish the other projects that I want to do...?

Nice pace Greg. Exhaust sounds good and you really are carrying the off road speed of a proper dirt bike. Looks like you've no shortage of interesting places to ride either. Just another couple of months and I'll finally have my own S10 but until then, I'm riding vicariously through your videos!

Hi Greg, and everyone else with an s10. I was just wondering how you were going with the high front mud guard project. saw pics in your thread back on page whatever it was, very impressed. we have been working on an alloy louver engine cover thingo to keep the mud and crap off the bottom of the steering head etc. Still got some nuts and bolts to sort out yet. fantastic thread by the way. cheers

Thanks mate.
Still working towards the high guard.
I still need to get hold of the pattern making material yet.

Greg.
