down though at the same speed Ozzies did it too with that tyre on, the 606 dosen't seem to do this and as I can't seem

to do wheelies at speeds over 150 keeping the front wheel off the ground at that particular speed couldn't solve the

problem. Plus the knobs wore to points not flat like the 606 its probley just an SE thing or operator error
Iam taking notes Emu

I was into bikes when she married me and she grew up with 3 brothers and a dad into bikes.
she was used to the kitchen table full of motorbike parts etc..

funny how it all started, I was ducking out of the room to read msg's and calls

she confronted me ................of course it was about a motorbike !

it was never going to be another woman

having said anyware anytime I need to add the disclaimer

at the moment my left wrist is quite weak from the recent injury so I might wait a week or so to get a bit more strength into it.
Plus I need to fit some heated hand grips as they are the best thing since sliced icecream for my old let alone current wrist injury.

cheers

Probably worded that wrong...should be tracks rather than trails!.....did a very quick trip down to deep creek a few months ago and recall a few reasonably challenging steep 4wd only tracks that go down to the beach.

Didnt have time to really check out everything. Looking on the map of the place there are a few fire trails but unsure if can get access. Some really scenic stuff down there.
