Anyone got a spare paddock?

  1. So here's the deal:

    Someone's offered me an old Honda Ag-bike, free of charge. His kids used it to run around on their property - the kids are now older, the bike isn't being used, he's happy to let it go.

    I'm told it shouldn't need too much work to get it going, it'd be a good little project for my 15 yr-old and me, and if it turns out to be a lost cause it can go to the tip.

    But...I live in the burbs, I don't own a country property, and I don't know anywhere I could take my kids to ride this thing once we get it going.

    Not many people own farms or private motocross tracks, yet there are lots of kiddy off-road bikes for sale out there. So - where on earth do people take their kids to ride these things?

    Any suggestions? Anyone got a paddock they could let us use occasionally?
  2. I know of a paddock you could use... its nearish ararat :p
  3. It might as well be near Broome, then. :p
