So I thought I'd start a build thread, havent added or changed anything yet as its only 2 weeks old tomorrow and it just spent its first 1 and a 1/2 weeks getting ridden each day:cool:
Love the bike, ran well not a problem with it and gave it two oil changes whilst away. I think the tappets need adjusting now though.

Went to my mates property in the snowies, had a ball. A few pics and I've got heaps of video once I've downloaded them I'll add them.











Some forgot to put away their riding gear at their peril!

looks like it was a top spot for riding !
i'd take a cheap bike cover next time, just to keep the frost off it at night

how did your bike go keeping up with the others ?
i reckon they'd have been surprised on how it goes

They said yeah it was quick. Only thing making it tough is the tyre size, through the tree's in the twisties it was quick but in the gopro video you could see how much I'm working.
And when it was was a bit slippery it was treacherous:laughing-smiley-002
My mate rides the yz125 and he had a go on it and was surprised just how much poke it has.

That does look like a good spot to go riding! Nice setup around the fire too, looks like a good lot of frost must've been a few degrees below over night...

Thanks guys, I've riden dirt bikes before but I wouldn't say alot. More bmx, and I only stopped that because of injuries and I'm old. Lol. Anyway aren't these just bmx's with motors? Haha

I'll have to get an edit of oopsy's. I did come off once when the bike stalled and locked up in the damp grass and I rolled off and let a yelp out like a girl:LolLolLolLol:
Luckily i had all the speed washed out before highsiding.

So it begins, popped the mod cherry! Used the last bit of pipewrap I had, which happened to be just enough to go from the rear flared section of pipe down to the front step down in pipe size.

The one where I let out a girly noise the bike stalled and locked up, it was doing it a bit on the slippery down slopes and that grass section. I think the high compression on the new bike was helping that.
I almost held it it was a huge slide and at the end it kicked back left.

And yeah first time jumping a double on the bike, and first save haha I did have my right leg dragging.
