Done! I actually thought of your old vid knoxie while I was zooming around. I was only there for 5 mins tops but wondered how long it'd be before someone can and told me off.knoxie wrote:yes awesome! think you should drop it in to the stealth owners thread too buddy
Hard to say, I didn't actually get off the bike - just leaned one foot down to put the camera on the ground a few times. It wasn't noticably grippy or springy on the bike. I'm running big knobby 3" tyres on the back at low PSI so they're very grippy anyway for most offroad stuff but I wasn't pushing it too hard, I opened it up on the straights but I didn't want to corner too hard with them incase they let go. I noticed afterwards that the knobs on the edges were red so they must have been digging in a little with the low pressure. It'd certainly be faster with hookworms or similar at higher pressure. 70km/hr is fast enough anywaydef215 wrote: how was the ride like on the track hyena? ive always ran on on one and i remember them being really springy and grippy.

Hobbit, I'll be riding past the place you saw me last time at 8am if you'll be in the area
Golf course you say hobbit ?
I did see one area roughly opposite this which I think is where the old tip was, all bare with big mounds of dirt. That could be fun to blast though. I did end up accidently at the back of a golf course last time anyway, but it had been long established. Is where you're talking about an extension of this ?
In unrelated news, I called into bunnings this afternoon to get some bits I needed and on the way home came across a petrol powered bike. I was spewing I'd left the gopro on my fighter the previous day and was running late so didn't have time to swap the mounts over. I heard him coming and looked around to see him riding like a maniac, zooming off the gutter then weaving around cars back and forth and down the wrong side of the road. Why do all gassers ride like assholes and attract attention to themselves ? I guess this is why the cops have it in for them and not ebikes.
Anyway I was keen to see what he had as he seemed to accelerate quite quickly when I saw him approach from the site. I was minding my own business pedalling along at 40ks and he came up behind me sitting right up my arse, as soon as the car behind us passed he zoomed up along side, smirked at me then continued to pull away slowly down a hill at max revs (noisy, smokey bloody thing). I let him get a bit of distance then flicked into 120% mode and quickly reeled him in. I flew up the inside and yelled out "IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?!" He looked around stunned then I zoomed off and he never caught up
I might detour that way on the way home tomorrow and see if I can find him again
Yes I must admit he did look to fit that profile and I'm sure he would have previously had a battered VN commodore in his driveway at home.andynogo wrote:The tradie types on smoker bikes are doing it because they've been caught for the 5th time driving their cars without a licence and had them impounded.
You forgot the only one that really counts, the flying spaghetti monster!good luck tomorrow and Thursday- I'll be sending a prayer or two to God, Jehovah, Allah, Buddah and the mice (it'll be interesting to see who gets that one), just to cover most bases.
Lycra beating? What kind of game are you playing where you put a motor against human power? I will say it again, it sounds silly. Yes, I'm an ebiker and also a lycra, at different times.knoxie wrote: lots of lycra beating lately although I feel bad for doing it,
