Finally got my own track :-)
« on: August 29, 2013, 09:29:35 PM »
Well I finally got my own track, no more bitching about how others prepare the track, I see a lot of hard work coming up.

This is the west valley looking down it.


This is looking up the west valley.


This is the central part of the track.


And this is the east end of the track.

Lucky bugger, beautiful countryside, totally jealous or is that envious. I don't know looks great :)
Let's face it some dirt bikes were never meant to be ridden.

That looks awesome Johnny! Are you planning on keeping it largely "natural" terrain as its shown here or shifting some dirt around to make more jumps??

Thanks Guy's  :-)

I'll generally try and keep it 'natural terrain, if I put in any jumps I'll make a by-pass track around them.

Once I get the place in order I'll have a few bbq/ride days, all here will be invited.

Once I have the track lookin 'picture perfect' I'll book a light plane trip to take some pics.

That's fantastic. :)
The good thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said.
