Looking good, but I don't know about doing some single track and popping over a few decent logs! :P
Fire trails would be a blast though.  ;D

its more for some proper gravel road stuff, I live in the hills outside Melbourne and that's pretty much all we've got (unless you want to play dodge the dickhead tourist on the only tarmac road that goes over the hill)

Are they those bloody pull to tighten straps that come loose with every tiny bump in the road. God I hate those.

Also at least the head got a good lube...
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

the bungee was only there to hold the muffler in place, that was about the only thing that  didn't let go

and it was very close to disappearing down the hill but the trees would have stopped it before it hit the driveway further down

luckily as i'd spent a week converting it to the genesis of a trailbike it wasn't damaged at all, if it had been stock it would have destroyed the tank, bars and headlight/taillight at the very least
