      • Hey people,

        All seems to be ok. No breaks, but it appears to be a dislocation on impact and a relocation when she stood up. Ligament damage but hopefully no tears. 2 hours in the hospital and she's full of pain killers but home at least.

        Thank you all so much for your help in recovering her and the bikes. We really appreciate it, and whoever got the details for the fella with the 4wd please pm them to me, so we can organise something for him.

        It was a good day out till she twisted her knee, and it hasn't put her off !

        So we will be back.

        What I would like to see happen though in future rides is that if its going to be a grade 1 or 2 ride....make it that, not what today was. I appreciate that the ride needed to cater for a lot of different skill levels and it has to be a good fit for all concerned. But 10 hours total on a motorcycle is a beginner, and grade 1 needs to allow for that, and the course should match accordingly imo.

        Just my 2 cents

        Strummer, thank you your efforts today. It was great to meet all of you and hopefully we will be back out as soon as the lass has mended.

        Cheers and thanks again for all your help, effort and patience... It was very much appreciated. We have been wanting to get out and meet some new friends, and today was a good start

        Cheers
        Dingo

                At the risk of being completely wrong about this and I apologize for it if I am....it's unfortunate your girl got injured but strummer did say this was a ride where grade 1-2 riders can have a go at more challenging stuff,otherwise he would have stated this is a grade 1-2 ride and there will be no challenges,I know that lead riders take it to heart when someone gets injured on their watch,they and the sweeps and helpers do an amazing job just so we can have rides to attend and help available-not many people do it at all.

                There is always confusion over what grade people are and it really is up to the individual to see if they are suitable for the ride or not and you can always bail out if you find you are in over your head,hope she has a quick recovery and gets back out there soon

                  +1

                  strummer's specific wording was "...newer riders out there who would like to step up to grade 2-3 terrain..." i believe the ride was exactly this with plenty of easy stuff in between for people to get their breath back. but i know people may read different things into the grading system used....

                  as a ride organiser i've come across the same thing where the original post wasn't read or the meaning was misinterpreted and it can get a bit discouraging as it takes way more time and work to organise these rides that you would think. plus you can't relax and enjoy the ride so much since you are constantly keeping an eye out for everyone.

                  so a massive thanks as always for the ride, strummer, and hope you do keep organising them! thanks to the sweep riders too and to those who did pitch in to help or encourage other riders.

                  i'll have a ride video posted later. and that's really good news on the knee, dingo! we had our fingers crossed that it wasn't too serious so that's a huge relief. and that is hasn't shaken her confidence...

                  EDIT: just realised some may not have read up on the DBW grading system.

                  LEVEL 2 - WHERE TO NOW ? - We know how the bike works thanks! We want to ride some tracks and get the hang of a how to ride up a hill and through ruts and rocks and varied terrain.

                  LEVEL 3 - CONFIDENT - I've seen most of the types of obstacles riding has to offer and a good idea of how to handle them, the odd push and helping hand wouldn't hurt. No crazy hills yet though!

                  • Should also add that Strummers rides also say "plenty of help where help needed". If you truly dont feel confident, then stop and ask for assistance. Someone will even ride your bike up for you if you need it.

                    Not going to help anyone criticising or analyzing. Our sport is laden with risk and its part of the natural progression of improvement that we must challenge our abilities in order to get better at what it is we chose to do. All of those risks should be calculated, however they're still risky.

                    Personally, I think someone with only 10hrs ride time would be better off riding somewhere like QMP where they can ride graded trails with a more experienced rider acting as a mentor / coach. This allows them to ride at their own pace and most importantly, allows them to hit the same terrain over and over again and to understand and perfect their technique. This is a big plus for new riders and really should be a must for them. Riding trails following a group of faster / more experienced riders, you hit everything usually in rushed panic with often no idea how to approach it and you either make it or you don't. If you get stuck, someone will probably be there to to help you get through the section where you're stuck, but that only teaches you how to get out of trouble, not how to avoid it in the 1st place. You can only learn that by riding somewhere you can hit the same stuff over and over again without fear that you're holding people up or getting in the way.

                    I wasnt there on the weekend, but it seems it was nothing more than an unfortunate accident. Luckily you had the good sense to be riding in a responsible and caring group who could get you out to help safely. I hope the leg heals fast and you're back out hitting trails and working on your skills, soon

                    • Can't please everyone , even when its free !
                      IF IT WASN'T FOR STRUMMER, THERE WOULD BE NO LEARNER RIDES, THINK YOURSELF REALLY LUCKY !!!!!
                      Read description, think its for you ? Go, don't think its for you just yet ? Wait for more suitable ride.
                      Don't whinge about level when it was clearly stated at the beginning.

                      Ps, falling off and hurting yourself is part of dirt bikes, it can be hard, it can be frustrating, better get used to it or give it up !

                      • slapped together a quick ride vid last night. i was using strummer's chest mount and the angle didn't work so well with my height but still watchable! i'll post it on the main thread too.



                        by the way, it was quinton who owned the 4wd who very kindly offered to transport R out of the forest to the waiting ambulance.

                        i tried to get his mobile number in case we wanted to get him a lottery ticket or something to say thanks but he said no way, was just glad to help out. you meet the nicest people hey?

                        • No negatives intentions were meant in any way. We were very happy with everything that happened yesterday. You guys were fantastic in every respect. Lets just say i assumed a grade 1 ride would have been alot easier. And thinking about it this morning.... if it had of been dry with no slippery mud, there would have been no issues for her, and the terrain would have been perfect. In fact we have been up there on some of the same tracks when its been dry and there were no dramas.

                          Talking to Ro this morning, it seemed that she just didnt want to hold everyone up, and even though we all told her over and over that she didnt need to go any faster, she put that pressure on herself...and that didnt help.

                          I really hope my feelings on this arent taken the wrong way. And definately not negative towards strummer, because we really enjoyed the day, the people, and the ride 90% of the time.

                          all good people

                          cheers, and lets see these videos

                            • Hi Guys! No blame on anyone here! All my fault...I just did a stupid thing and the mud where I placed my foot didn't help! Dingo got it all on film and it was so ugly to see my leg bend sideways by about 30 degrees! Argh! I want to thank everyone for all their help and support yesterday throughout the whole day but especially at the end! None of this has put me off...I can't wait to mend so I can get back on! MRI at the end of this week to see exactly what we r dealing with!! By the way the video is great...loved how I yelled at the ambo when he told me they were going to cut my pants!! Once again guys thanx for yesterday! I was challenged and supported and met some really nice people! R

                                ^rof yeah i wasn't sure whether to leave that bit in coz people might have thought you were angry at the ambo instead of messing around! so glad it wasn't as bad as we feared and hope you heal up fast and come out again soon....
