I've been trolling these forums for a couple of days now and am totally addicted to the site so I finally signed up. Can I just say the wealth of info on here is incredible and the amount of people willing to help is inspiring. I've been riding for 3 years or so very casually here in Aussie land and just thought I'll post a few things I've learned. Firstly is once u get on a dirt bike u will never give it up. Second is if u buy a used dirt bike don't expect it to work like brand new. Third is always try your own mechanical work if your half interested in fixing it yourself, there's a lot of info on the net and you will be very proud of yourself once your done. Last is always take you time when fixing something. Nothing worse than making a very costly or stupid mistake cause you didn't take you time!! In very happy to be part of such a great community and keen on learning more in the future and helping out when I can.
