What springs are you going with? Looking at doing mine soon as getting sick of the dive.

Sunday, or maybe Monday.
Must be similarly low skilled or patient.
Should be longer than 2 hours, as I checked the clutch last night. Good as new.
Would be up for that in a couple of weeks.

I'm in Heathridge and a noob as well.

no worries

Planning to go out there every 2 weeks or so, will let you know. Have you got rim locks fitted?
Had a blast today! There were lots of fourbies but they were friendly and bike aware.

Plenty of challenges to choose from


10 points if you can name the manufacturer

Fair point Dennis. The first time I did it I remember a bit of sand at the Hyden end.
The next time was a bit of a blur.
And last year I did it coming back the other way towards Hyden. Conditions were pretty good but the Denmark club had been through there the weekend before and ripped the shit out of it. There were some very interesting tracks from them that gave me a few smiles. Anyhow as I was getting back towards the Hyden end I was expecting the sandy bits to be coming up and then before I knew it I was at the Hyden Norsman Rd. No real sand to speak of.

Watch out for fallen trees

Yep. I had one once. It was really good in some ways, but with a few strange design issues. Had to do all the work on it myself, even my regular exhaust place wouldn't touch it.

I have loads of dive plus the rear bottoms out on any woops or big pothole, drives me nuts. Top Gun rear spring 7.4kg and Race Tech front springs 30x550mm .5 kg. all ordered from rockymountainatv.com for a great price. Ordered some more stuff too and shipping was only $65 DHL came in a week.

The good riders probably run 30psi and ride with no hands.
I run 10psi and hang on.
Which one are you?
The hardest parts were the sandy uphill bumps where the fourbies had axle-tramped with hard tyres. Not as soft as Bremer.

The lights are HID, came with the Lynx fairing. Modified for driving on the "right" side of the road.

I'm a either fall off and cry or turn around and go home type

To be honest have only tried sand riding a couple of times and was absolutely knackered after 10 minutes from tensing up. Which of course means I need to do a lot more of it.
