    What is CSM Richo ?

    And Tori after watching what you guys are going through I am starting to understand people's hatred of Parks Vic.

    Climbers to me are a group that look after the areas they use and have a connection with the environment, they are also wise enough to have formed a lobby group which is the only way things get done it seems.

    4wds using closed tracks or digging holes in them when it's wet, dumpers, campers who leave fires burning and dirtbikers filling the carpark and bush with water bottles and pie wrappers don't help but I have the feeling access would be restricted anyway.

    I do find it interesting that logging is fine - acres destroyed in Toolangi for wood chip (I know it's been happening for generations blah blah - but it still causes massive environmental impact and shouldn't be happening if they are precious about other users of an area) but a few bikes making single track or some people climbing a rock is not allowed.

    I hope more people get behind you guys to make things change.

    Last Saturday some of the local Nati crew put on the annual 'Camel Toe Rally' - held as a fundraiser for mens health and mental health. This is a great day out had by all - on the day we had 35 riders and spirits were high. Weather was amazing, company just as good and everyone had a thoroughly good time. A big shout to Tim, Shorty and Alex for putting on this great event. Thanks to everyone else that volunteered time to make this a memorable day on the dirt bikes.

    I was physically stuffed by the end of the day, I think my sentiment was shared. Thankfully, good cold beer awaited us. No riders were hurt in the making of this video - except perhaps Bucho who had some sore ribs from a stack.

    The YAMAHA Big Wheel was a novelty sight at the rally, and it drew more attention than any of the shiny new bikes. It seemed to do very well in the conditions; only to have the ride cut short after lunch because of a flat rear tyre.

    Well, it's currently 42 degrees Celsius outside and still heating up . . . which has given me a great excuse to video edit up part 3 : Menindee to Mildura. Some funny moments in here, especially the encounter with Mungo Man @bigborett



    @Bluetonguejak @jardine @Brute @bigborett enjoy!!!

    I think I only had one coffee before I got on the bike, so I was a little off my game . . .

    I’m pointing my nieces to all your vids (under their parents view / radar) when they return from 3 mths in Nepal with Mum and Dad...

    Girls on motorbikes... Best ever.
    No sexism intended, implied.. You’re a great role model. Thank you!
