Got sick of sitting around so i........?

G'day all, got sick of this wet weather we have been having up here in the Sunshine State, so me and a mate decided to go for a ride on the dirt squirts to fill in the day. I have not been on the 510 since about September so decided it was a good time to blow out the cobwebs from both the bike and myself.

I had fitted new wheel bearings, chain, sprockets, chain guide rollers, brake pads etc, what better way to bed it all in than in mud and slop

A few pics.
Ktm 300EXC & Husky TE510 ready for action

Some track

Stink pipe pollution

Plenty of water flowing on some of the tracks

More stink pipe pollution

Still pretty overcast, but not a drop of rain from the time we got on the bikes until we got home. Humid as buggery though.

Top of a slippery mungrel hill to be greeted buy a mossy rock garden, nice. I flipped the hysky going up when i got traction on a step up and snapped off my rear brake lever. Was fun going down, didn't know my backside could get so tight.

Pete having a break at the top of the hill.

Train tracks on the way home.

G'day Matt, How are you mate, i will pm you with tracks, or give you a bell and come for a ride. Would be pretty greasy around glasshouse at the moment.

Hi OBB, yeah we are a little spoilt and lucky we have a bit of rock around the place so we get to ride in most conditions.

Hi Sean-O, dont tell Digga .
