Hey all..

Mark here from Vic's western suburbs..21 y.o and grown up riding, although im still no good at it!
Similar to Josh above with my work... except I work on live underground mains.

Started riding on a PW80 and went through a KX80, CR125, RM125. KX250, RM250 and now my beloved 2012 WR450
Had a break for 5 years to focus on studies and find a job.. then bought a jeep and spent alot modifying it to make myself shit bricks on near vertical climbs at the local quarry, haha!
Really enjoy getting out with the boys and having a blast banging bars on the fast open stuff!! Into all things outdoors, love my 4x4 trips to the VIc High country in my little zook etc..

Mainly ride wombat and still have NFI where Im going..have also ridden, wye river, paddys swamp, neerim, anglsea, egerton, lal lal..

I have seen a black panther near tylden resevior, then went looking for it in grass that was about 7ft high with a stick when i was 12..

yet to do a DBW ride, but keen as to start joining in on the fun.

My name is Stuart.
They call me icebergstu.
On a brighter note I take magic mushrooms once a year by myself.
I have been riding dirtbikes for almost 5 years at the time of writing this post.
I rarely drink alcohol because I become a crazed lunatick.
I sell grass (attificial) and am starting a hydroponic tomato greenhouse soon in my back yard.
I like Husqvarna motorcycles for some reason?
DBW is a great place...full of awesomeness.

Stu

My name's Jace.
I'm 46
Married to a great woman 18 yrs. with two teenage daughters.
I grew up in a family where bikes were called "coffins on wheels"
But the first time I saw the little fat kid from down the road, riding his Deltek deckson around the pub carpark across the road from my house,I knew what envy was.
I was 15 when fate came my way in the shape of a 1974 XL100 for $70.
Since then it's been a mix of road and trail bikes, I've never been interested in racing ,except when one of my daughters was racing pocket bikes , all us dads would go out to fight for honour and glory with our knees around our ears.
Just got a Freeride this year, and I love it, it just suits me and the type of riding I do, also got a Superduke for times I feel like dressing up in leather.
So overall I feel very blessed.

Oh, my username is my birthday, first day of 1967.

Welcome to DBW mate.

Keep an eye on the "Organise a ride" forum and hopefully you'll get a chance to get out and meet some DBW members.

I'm Hori

Married 28 years , worked for myself since finished my apprenticeship 1985
Only time I forget about *@#&*@#&*@#& work is Saturday on the bike.
The rest of the time is just constant stress on doing and collecting !
Not easy when sometimes u can employ people who make your job look like shit then u have to rectify .

Bikes are fun so are most who ride them , I like the big group rides and the chats along the day out ,

I have two yamaha wr 450's a 08 and a 09

Done lots of damage to the 09 in the last 2 years , but all have had a great story behind them ..

Live in Logan west , *chapel hill *
Got 11 year old girl who loves me buddies and always ask of them and who did what ,

Son is 20 he rides a Tm who he got from Andrews motorcycles and loves it ,
But prefers to ride with his cousins and mates rather than us older blokes.

Wife , she hates the bikes , calls em money pits :-(

Neighbours aren't to keen on them either lol

Name is Brodie. Live north/east suburbs of melb. Age 25
Only started riding about 18 months ago. Started on a 97 KLR250 and quickly realised it wasn't suitable for the riding I was doing. Currently own an 08 CRF250X and love it.
Favorite spots to ride would have to be Cobaws and Mt Dissa, no idea of what level I'm at as have only ridden with my mates, haven't been able to make it to a DBW ride as I am not sure what level rides I should attend.
