    $2.5 million for Tassie West Coast trails and maybe Maydena?

    Yes it's a great trail. Takes me about 4 runs to get dialed in and I still don't hit all the big stuff. The other factor with that trail is the amount of riders that go down it. I'd love to have a trail counter on it to see how many.

    There's always going to be the odd person that makes a mistake or pushes the boundaries too far but hopefully that's not too often as I hate the backlash that the new trails often get about the burden on the medical system and tying up resources. I'm sure when you look into the data that there...

    That story was followed up by this one, and where the local GP was saying it was pure luck that the local medical services have not burdened by the new trails:rolleyes: I think with the amount of riders that have been down the trails in the last six months since opening and only one serious...

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    Yeah I can't watch tv or even listen to a podcast, when I need to concentrate on a task. I can have music going if it's not too mentally demanding but if I really need to focus I can't have any distractions.

    Thanks for the offer, but we'll see what we can find. Like to get her something nice and new with modern geo.
