    Looks good Tori, Wyche is pretty flat though.
    Those tracks look a lot like some we did chasing Andreew Houlihan from Swan Hill across to Ouyen, but on the bigger bikes and at more speed. Interesting stuff, keep it coming for us in lockdownland.

    Those tracks, and some others on that ride(read, near death experiences) are part of the reason I am looking at front fork mods on the SE.
    They took a lot of rider input on the big girl. Not like some with their cheater forks and shocks.:rofl

    Still waiting for the vid on our weekend at your place @ToriMish . The one with Dave and can't remember his name, with the kitted 690, nice guy.
    Some nights I cry myself to sleep. Have been left on the shelf since you got the new 390 and headed to the Flinders.:1drink
    Did you have footage of the single track?

    Need to get up there again soon. When we are allowed to go past the milk bar.

    Yep, ditto.
    Cheater forks and shock you say?
    Are you calling Toby Price a cheat?

    Gotta admit though, even on a big bike, those cone valves saved my skin many times.... that unexpected hole in the track when you dont see it until your on it at a high speed and its too late. Normal forks would have you heading off into the bushes/paddock/nearest tree, the cone valves made it feel like it wasnt even there. The harder you hit shit the better they work. :)

    I have had a good look over the footage and determined that you were riding too slow and that if I posted it to YouTube, your reputation as a gun rider would be damaged beyond repair.

    I've got a lot of projects on the shelf. That Grampians ride may make an appearance one day . . .

    As a matter of fact, it was never really there except in my quickly failing mind.

    Did a lap of the Grampians yesterday; bout 250km, lots of fun.

    I didn't take the action camera, nor the drone, but I got this little gem of Lisa binning her CRF450L.

    It's all good. If you ride at the back you don't see Tori for dust.:rofl

    I want to know what was in the middle of that crossing that made them hug the wall so dearly!
