grading rides is good that way we all no wot wer up for.

Franks grading pic is the best one iv seen,,,coz we all no how we ride.
if wer between grades,,ie 3-4,, we can go on the 4 and see how we go.

Yep when u look at Freaks Ride list i agree, where did rest come from ?

Did who ever bought the ringins explain to them what they was in for ?

lot comes back to those new blokes we neva met before and the people who invited em ...

think we all know our limits n who n where we should ride with..

But after today i can see where Lunatic is coming from, not that it would of made a differance those blokes was gunna come anyway..

Not just today Hori
My thinking is the guys and girls that turn up for a ride and find themselves way out of ther depth ,Don,t enjoy themselves
And likewise the guys and girls that wan,t a bit of pace in a ride don,t enjoy themselves

MY main concern is for the ride Leaders
If people are out of there depth they complain
And if people think its too easy or slow they complain
Its human nature
However we haven,t got many people leading rides and if they cop shit from people and say Bugger this its all to hard
Then what , everybody,s screwed

Post Re: Ride grading Do we need or want it
This is all my fault. :( I did say grade 2-3 Criusy ride. I did look up the grading system on DSMRA and seen level (2) as Follows, Moderate trail riding for those with some trail riding experience, Could be some tricky bits involved and natural obstacles. And LEVEL (3) AS FOLLOWS General trail riding for a confident person with a well prepped and maintained or new bike, who is not afraid to have a go at certain obstacles,(Weather you can do it or not) such as creeks- rivers-Mud-harder type hills (Eg) Mango tree hill but not fridge hill- and the tracks along the power lines that lead to big red. And to carry there own tools and certain spares and know how to use them. I only wish that this bloody Gps of mine did work for today, Because i got a couple of maps from someone who told me the sought of terrain it was. So i do appoligise to you all today, Didnt mean to give a bum steer.

Ive known mick since he was a young boy,(Black honda) He and his mum and step father are good freinds of mine. I know its got nothing to do with today, but he and simon (RMZ450) had watched a number of TRAs vids on beerburrum, and seen the type of terrain they were getting themselves in for, Eg; Mango tree-triple step-all the mud and deep holes and dust. Mick is a sore man at the moment, but simon did say that the more he was getting into it. The more he was eager to keep going and have a go.Those stonekings must be a bit greasy,because they said they struggled a bit. They can both go home now,and say that they did beerwah, and survived :wav

Definately not your fault mate
And as Hori said we all got a ride ( i had a ball today )
This isn,t about todays ride ( today just showed in my opinion ) what i,ve ( and a few others ) have been feeling for a while
Definately no need to apologize

Also this is for everyone from beginners to the racers on this forum
I wan,t everyone to have a say and voice there opinions
Basicaly its about everyone having as much fun as they can everytime they throw a leg over there bike icon_thumright

It is hard to grade yourself though.
You need to do a few rides to grade yourself.
Maybe Freak you should appoint a grading Officer. :D
I can think of one person :manager: :headbang

Post Re: Ride grading Do we need or want it
Just one more thing about grading levels. Its the areas you go to as well. Beerwah grade 3 is more vigorous than ammamore. You can do a grade 3 with manager at ammamore at 125kms, and have one of the best rides ever and come home with no pain. But then you can have a grade 3 at beerwah and only do 50 or so kms and feel like your 90 years old.
