    Big thanks to Belinda and Jason from Southside for the visit and the subsequent photo set for their blog. Their visit coincided with the completion of the HiRider V2 project that has now set sail for Italy. It’s probably a good chance to get a little personal and let you know where my heads at. […]

  • HiRider V2 – 2 kits destined for Italy

    If your an avid reader of ETS then you may remember a little KTM that I threw together a few years ago. It started as a form of payment to my friend Dean, he went shooting for a company and ended up being paid with 2/3’rds of a motorcycle. I guess this story signifies a […]

  • Glamis Sand Dunes

    In 1994 I was 11 years old, I had an XR75 Honda, our house backed on to farm land and the owners gave me permission to ride their entire property. It was probably in 1996 that a VHS tape called Crusty Demons of Dirt 1 made its way from America to Australia and into my […]
