BEACH BEEMER Shane Booth takes on a late-afternoon sand session. Nothing too unusual with that, except that he’s riding a BMW R 1200 GSA Rallye X which, to grossly understate it, isn’t a common sight on a beach. Boothy took some time to get used to the big Beemer on the soft sand but had it dialled in no time. It was crazy to watch. AUSSIE GRIT A few brave/crazy/determined Aussies make the massive trip to Romania for the annual Red Bull Romaniacs. It must surely be one of the biggest logistical undertakings for any rider, not to mention the fact that you’re then facing with one of the most sadistic races ever devised. Just the prologue alone thins the herd a heap. Well done, guys…much respect.…

HERE’S 10 THINGS I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT LATELY. 1 Chad Reed tipped Michael Byrne in the bucket on Instagram for not being picked on the MXoN team (Byrne is the team manager). As a result, Byrner took massive amounts of shit on social media. The problem is that Michael Byrne doesn’t pick the team; he has one vote in many and it was a majority decision. Chad and Byrner haven’t got along for some time, which doesn’t help the situation. But the way everyone jumped on the F-you Byrner bandwagon, took one side of the story and rubbished a guy we actually have every reason to be proud of was disappointing, but also basically the way social media works in 2018. 2 If Kade Mosig has just lost his career for taking…

2019 SUZUKI RM-Z250 It’s been a number of years since the Suzuki RM-Z250 has had a substantial update. In 2019, we are treated to a completely redesigned small-bore zook — hell yeah! So what’s new? Well, pretty much everything! It’s claimed to have more horsepower, better throttle response, a new spring fork and new shock and linkage. It’s also taken on the new look of the 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450 as well, which we love. FEATURES All-new aluminium frame and swingarm Increased power Improved throttle response New exhaust system New bodywork and graphics New spring fork New shock and linkage 2019 YAMAHA YZ85 Although the Yamaha YZ65 has stolen the limelight from its bigger brother, the Yamaha YZ85 has scored a massive list of upgrades. At first sight it looks to have some new stickers, but under the covers this is a…

training day

I recently attended a day of coaching with Josh Green through the Active8 Yamaha rider’s Offroad Advantage and got a reminder on just how easy it is to forget the basics. Held at Josh’s amazing base in Stroud (NSW), the day catered for all ages and degrees of experience, with Josh’s team mate Michael Driscoll on hand to help with demonstrations and coaching. The vibe is relaxed but with a degree of seriousness and a well-thought-through method. Josh concentrates on improving the base skills that make up everything thereafter and he does it through instruction, demonstration and a series of drills. Some of the stuff Josh has the crew doing seem odd at first — stoppies, riding with your front wheel locked up and then riding in circles with the steering…
