    So long as your breeches aren't breached, what could possibly go wrong?

    Ended up ordering a pair of these for hip protection once I get back on the horse.

    D3O amour in the hip area which is fairly rare, some in the tail bone but not many around the hip. I like the D3O stuff, it is quite impressive.

    They wouldn't actually be to bad for the real bike either I'm thinking.

    @ToriMish my two teen daughters are getting a kick out of your videos seeing other women riders makes it so much more tangible for them so keep up the good work. My eldest is hell bent on a new emtb now. So if you have cost me $6k I won't be happy :lol3 :evil :rofl

    Try $23 k for two of Toris bikes :amazon

    Thredbo do all female ride days ( gravity girls) , so theoretically you could drop them off and not have to watch them doing scary things. ( I was out riding with my 13 yo daughter last weekend and we came across some year 9 girls waiting for an ambulance.)

    I will try to get another video out in the next day or so . . . flat out building the shed and in the evenings I'm stuffed. I had to pass up a dirt bike ride with Peter Bennett and Dick and Phil (brothers) all inmates, doing a Grampians ride weekend. I started the Beta 300RR in the shed, and breathed in the fumes for a few minutes, but then had to go back to work cutting insulation into lengths :(

    X2 My home trails. Big variety of stuff. The hills aren't that big so personally I reckon the shuttle is only really required for the aged & infirm :amazon ...but it is a good way to fit a few more of the sweet descents into a day if you only have limited time.

    Lots of accommodation options in Rotorua. Tourism is pumping here though so book early. The trails are right on the edge of town so no transport hassles. Heaps of different bike hire options including ebikes. Within about a 2 hr drive there are lots of other riding options too including the Craters MTB park at Taupo, 2 day ride on the Pureora Timber Trail, Pakihi track on the Motu Trails, Whirinaki... Get in touch if you're over, might even be able to show you around.

    Cheers
