Did over 100kms of bush riding today (I didnt gps record the first section of about 30km) with the brother inlaw - we are both pretty knackered now but plan to hit the tracks again tomorrow morning :)

Im new to dirtbiking but Im giving everything a go, my brother inlaw is a much better offroader so I try to watch what he does (but he makes it all look easy) Nothing seems to look steep on camera but on one hill i was lucky to stop before a big dropoff which would of made today pretty interesting.

Got my gear lever rewelded onto the spline before we headed out and it seems to be holding ok now and my mancave has never looked so good hahahhah. I worked out Im getting 4.96litres per 100km fuel mileage (74.6km after last fuel stop on section 2, used 3.7litres of fuel) but im riding pretty easy just learning

Stockton Beach (NSW Australia) 

Im getting much better on sand - but stockon beach is on a whole new level of sand riding (its kinda famous for soft sand and people getting bogged even in the carpark like a kia I saw)

Im happy Im fairly comfortable on sand now - you just gotta let that bike move around underneath you where it wants to (to a degree) I found somthing that helped me alot was dont look anywhere near your front tyre or what its about to run over when learning ..... else you tense up before jumping sand rutts etc or lose your nerve and back off which generally always ends fantastically badly.  Just look ahead and trust the bike will plough through all the chewed up sections hahaha (and momentum is definatly your friend. Sometimes took me about 100metres just to get 2nd gear if i stopped with the soft sand and big rooster tails hahah)

Having great fun :)
