No kidding! Pristine!

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

I raced it about 20 years ago.

All I remember was a stretch of bog about 500m long by 100m wide. Bikes stuck everywhere including mine. When I was digging out the back wheel an eel the size of my leg slithered out of the mud. Gave me the fright of my life.

DNF'd. Went back to town. Brought the bike inside the motel room for the night. (on a tarp covered in mud)

Car & trailer got stolen from the carpark that night.

I blame Honda.

it is held in a different area of the forrest now, and no longer do they bus people to the bogs and river crossings, infact this year there was no streams or anything to cross,

your car and trailer getting stolen in Kawerau would still be on the cards tho,

That's awesome! The first few minutes I watched looked like a video game where you're just riding around random terrain.

Cody Cooper has to be one of the nicest guys in the world. That entire minute or 2 is pretty classic

Mate, I've raced in both countries extensively and I can tell you straight up that NZ has the best riding/racing areas hands down. And the lack of nanny government rules are refreshing. Sign your "enter at your own risk" waiver at the gate and saddle up.

You probably not drawn to it because their aren't any events in Aus like it. (not that I can find) sad

I blame Honda.

Haha yeah maybe but I've just always been a pound laps kinda dude haha There's actually a pretty good state forest here called Bungabee which is popular with the bushies and I tried to ride there with some mates but I was constantly freaking out the whole time not knowing what was coming up, I was even a little uneasy watching that vid haha
It's a definite skill I don't seem to have

I don't blame you. Riding state forests is dangerous. You never know when Shane & Baz are coming the other way in their clapped out Patrol. Best to ride organised events where you're all going in the same direction.

Hare Scrambles 20km MX track. Good fun.

I blame Honda.

A bit more of this epic event. I have no idea who endos after the 1:52 mark but it's a major.




Cool music too ...

Man I'd love to race that....So much fun.

I prefer the point to point...hare and hound style race...to the hare scramble format (multiple laps on the same course), but that terrain looks delicious!

most our races are shot gun start format like this, (and yes no sissy flag starts around here, shotgun goes off behind the riders) if you get down here, i can sort a bike, i got 25th overall this year riding in a 2 man team, and 2nd in the 2 man 1 bike class on a KX125, first 125 home,

here is the compilation vid
