    Southern junior dirt bike club. TAS.

    Thought I'd put up a few pics of my boy on his crf50. The club is a great starting point for junior riders. Lots of help and tips from the older members and parents. Bring your kids along for a look. More info on Facebook . Pics from last year's trophy day.20141217_134214.jpg20141217_112123.jpg20141217_112146.jpg20130715_111551.jpg

    Another good day at the minibike club. Wanted to take the z50a but the seats too high for my boy. 2015-06-14 10.34.39.jpg2015-06-14 10.34.52.jpg2015-06-14 10.43.26.jpg

    It's at Elderslie. 23 ks from the Brighton turn off. For juniors only but im sure my boy would love to give it a run. If you have kids, bring them up for a look.

    Only a small turnout today. Cooper is really enjoying the new bike, just a bit lazy on the gears. Was holding off a yz85 for about 6 laps.

    My son started his club life on a KX60 it was a great little bike unless it was muddy, the mud would get into the brakes and worked like grinding paste flogging out the hubs.

    It was such a common problem that you could buy oversized brake shoes to fill the hub.

    I found I could not stop the mud getting into the hub so I decided to help it get out.

    I used a 4" angle grinder and cut diagonal groves into the shoe surface, the groves started closest to the hub and moved diagonally out to the backing plate in the same direction as the wheel rotated.

    As the wheel rotated it would help push the mud out of the hub.

    There was a huge improvement in wet weather braking making ridding more fun and safer for my young bloke.
    Out of my depth in a car park puddle.

    Last day at the club for the year tomorrow. Christmas party and trophy day. Chucking in a couple of Zds for show and tell.

    So proud of my two bikie kids. Cooper was awarded first prize in his "C grade" group and Jordan came second in her "peewees " Fun day. Kids did a slow race (last one wins). Running race in riding boots. Santa rocked up on a RMZ! The crf 50s copped a flogging and Cooper and his mates refined their gully crossings.20171210_133149.jpg20171210_124342.jpg

    Last pic is my nephew. I said if he rides through there I'll buy him a sausage at lunch. He made it! BBQ was free!
    Can mods enlarge??? They are screen shots of video.
