I like to remind the young kids that it is OLD mans Valley. I shake my fist at them too. However, on the weekend, I was there happily casing the dirt jumps when I was joined by and older woman who looked to be in her early 50's. She threw shade, I gave up and went home.
It cost a lot more than I ever thought I would spend on a bike but still a third of potential septic costs. Will see how it goes.
Bush poos are an option. There is a second house that we will rent out, will have to find some open minded tenants. What did @Minlak do?
Can't wait to be able to...
Another update: Been spending lots of time on it. Once I got used to it feeling a lot more loose on the rough stuff then it became a very capable bike. I need to remember it's not my enduro, I keep bottoming out so I have to change habits and line choice.

There are one or two thumb shifter options out there but are expensive. One I saw required a shifter on each hand https://cinq.de/en/shifting-technology/428/shift-r-tour-for-pinion. There is a couple of diy ones out there that look promising so eventually they will be available. The gearbox uses...
The Vuly one we had lasted 6 or 7 years until the springs started letting go. I was in a damp salty environment so I thought it lasted well. Make sure you pin it down as others said, and make sure it is big enough to handle adults, I think I used ours more than the kids did.
My heyfever appeared at the age of about 35. Spring was pretty miserable until I went back to work after about 7 years looking after the kids. Now being outside as a landscaper has taken the edge off it and is very manageable with nasal spray and a Fexo each day. Might have had something to do...
