        4 days camping and riding Dungog/Chichester.
        Day 1 (Sunday) we arrived at Frying Pan to find it packed with campers. We found a parking spot unloaded and geared up. It was nice and dry with the usual slippery spots. The EC350F made short work of Lada Niva hill and the tracks back to Middle ridge were awesome. We returned for lunch to find the campground nearly empty, setup camp ate and then Stu lead us over to Fosterton tops where we drank our camelbacks dry due to the heat and humidity.

        Day 2, steady rain overnight and until 9am in the morning, we took a chance that it was done and left for the loop to Stratford, plenty of greasy clay but we only went down the monster hills and avoided the known uphills that would have been impossible, I chose to return via Tinkers road on the way back after droping down slippery dip and that was a mistake, with trees down every 50m. The river crossing was nice and deep after the rain but no one went swimming. The lads were pretty tired on the return to camp with a cold beer being very appreciated.

        Day 3, was spent looping around from camp, we were happy to find Bush Mill road had been cleared after spending hours lifting bikes over trees last time we were there. We spent the afternoon clearing a track that drops down a lovely gully up at the top of Fryin Pan road.

        Day 4, was a morning ride out towards Mountaineer where we happily found a new trail (to us) that hasn't been used for a while. Lunch and pack up on return.
        Thanks to Andy, Stu and Tony for a bloody brilliant time. The weather was perfect the beer was cold, nobody was hurt (except for the leeches) and except for a flat tyre the bikes were trouble free.

            Made it out to a friend’s farm with the wife and kids, a couple of mates and one mate’s kid.

            The 13yo has almost outgrown the CRF125 that we bought for him earlier this year… Thinking that we will leave him on it until he’s ready for a DR200 or XR200 (which will definitely be before his birthday in June..).

            The 11yo is still ok on the XR80 but wants her next bike to not be another hand-me-down. Not sure what to do there.

            Anyway, I took the Third Time Lucky KDX200 out for a squirt and really enjoyed it. Taking it for a blue slip next week will probably use it for the casual rides over Christmas.

              Is it possible to outgrow a modern mini, the 11os and 125/140s are more fun, agile than the full size old fashion modern 4t heavy/slow clunkers , especially when upgraded with some mods , [obviously if the person is over 95kg, well maybe then]

                I disagree.
                The 1985-design* XR80 fulfils it’s purpose much better than the much newer CRF125 does.

                The CRF’s positives are the electric start, front disc and it obviously goes better with its extra capacity.
                However… it is grotesquely heavy for its size and the styling gets in the way of practicality/comfort.

                An XR100 with a disc brake would be a better bike.

                *1984 or 85 for the ProLink XR80 chassis. The five speed XR75 motor goes back to the mid-70s

                    Looks like you had a terrible time!
                    Some of those early parts look like they would be a lot more difficult in the wet.
