    Huzzah! Finally hit the 1000+ subscriber mark.

    At last, now I can monetize my channel and earn the big bucks . . .

    In my dreams :)

    Thanks to all the folks that join me on my rides and make them special memories. I hope to capture many, many more rides with friends both new and old, before I subside into this good Earth to feed the worms.

    Cheers and happy trails :)

    Thanks guys, appreciated. Just had an epic few days of riding - I'm stuffed. Got heaps of footage. Did about 400km yesterday on nearly all tar - through the Grampians and then on to the lovely windy roads of Western Vic - Casterton/Colleraine/Merino area etc. Was tops.

    Today did a 150km dirt bike ride in the Grampians with some friends who are just getting into it. Was excellent fun. I have to sit down this week and get some editing done!

    Sorry Aaron, this video isn't the video you were waiting for . . . yours is in the pipeline, the hard bit is filtering through over 4 hours of 4K footage . . . ! I'm getting there :)

    Richo - sorry I couldn't make it up. There will be other opportunities. I was riding with the Mrs all weekend - she has a new Honda Africa Twin. She's going to get more used to the bike before she tackles Albacutcha sand :)

    Here's my latest vid :

    She loves it. It's a great bike, super light, perfect for more technical riding. She's ridden it up in the high country a bunch, and also locally - on lots of fire trails/single track/steep shit. She will throw it up anything. It's not as good for faster desert riding etc (compared to my Beta 300RR) but nothing about the X trainer is intimidating.

    Well, here's another one. This edit turned out to be movie length . . . oh well! It was a top day riding with friends - Dick on his new SWM Super Dual X and Atreyu on his DR 650. Good times.

    Hi all.

    Wondering Tori if you or others here have done much riding around Jilpanger Nature Conservation Reserve?

    I think I saw it mentioned or a sign in one of your films. If I'm wrong all good.

    Planning 2 days of riding in January (while away I know) but first I'd like to make a roadbook with the rallynav software I've had for a few years. I'm not going to have the opportunity for another off road rally anytime soon so I'd thought I'd create some digital roadbooks.

    If someone can point me in the direction of other trail areas nearby to the grampians (I love the area) I'm all ears. Approximately 100km loop as thats the fuel limit. A bit of road riding is fine, bikes full reg.

    Yep this one :


    January though? My god it is so hot up here in January. Dusty, hot and dangerous riding conditions. Still, you can get lucky with the odd day less than 30c . . . And an early morning start would be the go.

    The heat is a issue Tori as you say however the time I have is limited with family being away. I'm hoping to be lucky with the weather............

    I thought some forward planning might help be routes etc. Cheers

    Tori if I can create a route (blind of course) and then overlay it on a map would you be able to have a quick look and let me know if you think its ridable? Disregard skill and weather of course
    hahah.

    I'm all up for local knowledge. Awesome. Hows the guiding going since the closure? I had heard it'd been rescinded somewhat.

    We've had a 6 month reprieve with guiding access to Summer-day Valley; but the future of rock-climbing in the Grampians National Park is uncertain. the ACAV - Australian Climbing Association Victoria - has just launched legal action against Parks Victoria.
