Yeah, this is the best we have at the moment, can't complain.
It was a bit of a challenge to actually set up the course in those weeds. It turned out ok though, all turns were on good pavement with grass only between the cones. We had a great time running this thing.

It's considerably better than the wee car park strewn with broken glass that we have. We can get 10 mins practice in after the shops have closed & the car park empties, then the local urchins turn up & start heckling. "gizza a go mister", "is that as fast as it goes?" ect. Little turds. At least they don't chuck rocks.
Such is life.
If I win millions on the lotto I'm going to build a private car park.

With a roof, walls and door.

I am sooooo setting up a tail chase this weekend! Those are always so much fun, and it really gets the blood pumping trying to keep up with a faster rider in front of you.

I love tail chase, leading knowing one mistake and you could have a whole pack run you over, or chasing a fast guy just trying to stay on his tail

Enjoy guys, I can't make this weekend, I'm doing tourist guide for an old biking mate over visiting from UK, that I used to know before most of you were born

Hey Vulfy,
Just received my latest moto-gym update. Cheers. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend due to geographical dislocation.
May I suggest adding soap to your weed killer. Lux flakes or normal washing up liquid. It breaks down the "wax" on some plants leaves giving better penetration & a longer hold on the plant.
Keep up the good work.

Though it seems like I can never get there again, scheduling issues. But I saw this yesterday at HF and I thought it might be a good investment. Plus I can't wait to see the Port Authority cops reaction as I ride through the tunnel wearing it.

Thank you guys for suggestions. We treated a few grass snakes with vinegar, salt and soap, so will see how that works.




We filmed and posted our next Remote Competition obstacle, Anchor!

Come check it out on our site and start submitting your times. This one is a really fun one!

I tried to submit a time for hitch on your site, but I was defeated by captcha.

So here you go:

Excellent Nuggets. Dig the overalls.
You got directional tires on the Sherco?

Oh, please ride at the back of the tail chase.

I have been wanting to try this with a trials bike for a while now. It's better than the cruiser I had a least. I was hoping to get a better run, but I only took a few shots at it. I am glad to finally be playing in the remote competition. Thank you for doing it.

May I suggest that you put a preview pic of each course on the competition page? I think it would be nice to see the courses next to the times.

Overalls?!

That is the Roadcrafter one piece suit. The finest in protective gear, and the best way to combine looking uncool and motorcycling at the same time.



At slow speeds on a June afternoon, it also a great way to steam a Nuggets in its own juices.

I am pretty sure trials tires are not directional.

No offence intended, I rock the onsie's, too. What I meant by directional tires was the pattern which pushes the bike straight, the more you lean, the more it tries to push the bike upright.
2smokes get a bad rap but I love the smell of Castrol in the morning.
Run TTR full synth in mine. Gawjus stuff.
