Vintage Dirt Bikes & Steam Trains

I was out in the backyard with Finn (my dog) when I heard a steam whistle...

"what the..."

I thought I was imagining it at first, but it isn't Christmas so Polar Express wasn't due.

It was a steam train taking passengers on joy-rides down a normal suburban line.

What was cool was seeing an old time steam train from the porch of my 1914 Edwardian house.

A nice link to vintage dirt bikes:

Who Invented The Dirt Bike?

Fish... Pokemon and Steam Trains...

That's right, a steam train just wqent by my house!

No it's not Christmas and it wasn't the Polar Express. We have a train line opposite my house and although it's usually fairly quiet with the electric suburban trains, Once a year it's a buzz to hear the "choof choof" and whistle of the steam train doing a special run!

Off to get more fish, plants and a tank cleaner for the fish tank and for my son to log into a pokemon link to get a secret code.

And I ponder... just who invented the dirt bike?:


Free Online Dirt Bike Games and a Purring Kitten

As I sit here typing out this blog I could swear i'm at a motocross track right now!

I have our kitten sleeping next to me and purring so loudly it has me thinking I need to 're-pack' his muffler.

Ouch... doesn't that thought bring tears to your eyes...

Free Online Dirt Bike Games... doesn't anyone want to pay now-a-days??:


James Stewart Motocross and a "Corkie"

Played football last Sunday and we came through a gruelling and physical match with a win in the end.

It's an over 35's league where the rules are toned down a little to minimize injuries for the fragile and ageing bodies of us 'older fellas'...(yeah yeah I hear the violins playing now).

A couple of the rules are no slinging a person in a tackle and no knees up while taking a mark, so...

how did i end up getting a knee in my thigh that has me hobbling around like a wounded soldier on rememberence day??!!??

Hmmmmmm who knows? All in good fun though ;)

James Stewart Motocross... just sounds like bad grammar to me:

And Now It's Dirt Bike Games Online

I realy should keep a notepad and a pen with me at all times! Had an idea today for an article and do you think I can remember now what it was?

I do that a lot. I'm not talking about documenting EVERY single thought... apparently we have up to 60,000 a day... just the ones that are relevant to my general 'stream of consciousness' at the moment.

I get different thoughts in some odd places, in the car, in the toilet, while swimming or running... going to be hard writing things down while doing the last two!

Same thing as before just written differently:


Online Dirt Bike Games

How many ways can you say the same thing?

When it comes to online dirt bike games... apparently lots!

free online dirt bike games, online dirt bike games... for free. Take off the 'free' and it's dirt bike games online.

I don't know how lists of search phrases are compiled, but it's amazing to think at times that 800 people in one day can search for exactly the same thing using exactly the same words!

Free Dirt Bike Games and Inspiration

I found a cool dirt bike game while searching for content for a webpage. Not an easy one to play either. Fun though.

And the inspiration? I came up with an idea for a motivation/meditation/inspirational type tool to keep (myself initially) people moving forward and reaching their full potential.

And because i like to change topics... if you like online games, try this one:

Dirt Bike Helmets and a Punch in the Eye

Played footy today. Was in the backline and we kept the opposition down to only two goals while we got 16!

The conditioning i've been doing is paying dividends now.

When getting yourself a helmet, don't be cheap and don't rush:

Dirt Bike Mechanics and The Secret

I have been reading 'The Secret' and I noticed something on the news that paralleled with the book.

Cancer surgeon Professor Chris O'Brien lost his battle against a disease he treated so many people for.

He was a hero and champion to many.

It made me wonder if... if his primary thoughts were of the disease did his mind attract this affliction upon him?

Nothing to do with dirt bike mechanics, but here they are:

WR450 Supermoto - Big Boys Toys

Supermoto always seemed strange to me at first.

I was road racing at the time and on practice days I would see these guys on motocross bikes with slicks and thing... "why don't they just get a roadbike?"

I didn't know that they would go offroad for a bit and have jumps and a bit of dirt-track. Then back into corners on the asphalt. Looks pretty cool afterall.

It also reminds me of novelty car races they used to have on wide world of sports where rally drivers would compete against road drivers in a half road half offroad circuit.

Here's a WR450 Supermoto page:


Information on Dirt Bikes

I guess while i'm putting together my website on my own interests there is inevitably going to be a lot of information that will be useful or of interest to someone.

At the moment i'm creating a lot of pages on dirt bikes so for enthusiasts if you're after information on dirt bikes, famous by morning is the place to be:

Building a Supermoto

Why do people want to ride supermoto?

Think about it... the high speed of ripping across asphalt then letting the back-end drift out into a corner... what's that remind you of?

Being a kid! Screaming down your driveway at home and then locking up the back brake to do a big skid across the pathway at the bottom!

Supermoto is just big boy's toy's!

Motocross Track Blueprints

Ive heard of building construction blueprints, bridge blueprints, i've seen road construction blueprints but motocross track blueprints... that's a new one to me.

I guess some people call any type of plans blueprints.

But blueprints are actually... blue.

Being an engineer and having many a times done drafting both manually and on cad... is it ironic that when I setout a motocross track in the paddock I didn't do plans first?

Is that being lazy or just creatively laying the blueprints of the track in my mind?... :P

Build Your Own Motocross Track

I have been lucky enough to have the room on my parents farm to build my own motocross track.

Was just a one line track as I went round and around over the same path, then i approached a developer next door and had some dirt dunped on my site.

A weekend with a bobcat and it even had some jumps!

Need more dirt, more equipment hired and ... more time to do it!

Cheap Dirt Bike Tires and the Financial Crisis

Race teams change tires every race meet... well the top teams strip down and virtually change the whole bike!

If you race motocross or off-road you'd no doubt know the benefit of new tires, but over $100 a tire you don't want to change them too often.

So what's the compromise? Cheap dirt bike tires.

Where can you get cheap dirt bike tires? Try here for some tips:


Supercross Rider James Stewart on Video

2009 Supercross rider James Stewart won a thrilling season against Chad Reed and Ryan Villopoto.

Down to the last race, a promoters dream, but heartbreaking for Reed fans... which I am one of.

My good mate Brendan Bell from MXtv went to L.A. and interviewed some top level riders including supercross rider James Stewart (still with kawasaki):

Reading The Secret... And Supermoto

What's 'The Secret' got to do with a WR450F Supermoto?

Well nothing really... except in my world.

I was leant a copy of The Secret and have been reading it the past few days.

Of all this time I've been meditating, reading about self discovery and improvement I have never read the Secret.

Hasn't stopped me passing judgement on it of course (an Aquarian trait i've been told).

It's a good read... not too in depth but... comforting is a good word for it.

The link to WR450F Supermoto is... that i've just put this page up:
