Server Downtime

If you happened to notice the site has been unavailable for a couple of days, we do apologize. The downtime has been due to a backup hard drive failure in the MVDBR server box which we are working to rectify, however service may be intermittent over the next day or so.

[Update 26/10 – we back – replacement drive should arrive next week]

As a point of interest, the Seagate Barracuda 2TB drive that failed had clocked over 6 years 10 months of run time in this machine. The Western Digital disks with similar hours – still plugging along nicely 🙂

New Ride Video

Nat & I had an awesome ride on the weekend out and around Imbil in some very slippery conditions. Managed to find the Mt Allan fire tower which was a nice spot to stop for a rest. Also found some beautiful rock pools which will be a great spot to cool off in summer time. Great day of riding some of the best trails the area has to offer, don’t miss the video here: youtu.be/R9Zw3iTH0ng

New Click’n’Ride Indicator Sockets

Picked these up for the 500 EXC from MXstore, video review is up on our YouTube channel. I always loved the idea of the click’n’rides but the original implementation was pretty ordinary – the socket design meant they were hard to tighten to the bike and didn’t seal out dust and water very well. These new Gen 2.0 versions look to be a lot better. They are backwards compatible with the original lights so I’ll be using my old ones, although they claim the new lights are a big improvement as well. Video link: youtu.be/wU34hp1Eh3E
