CD3 was definitely at Barrabool. first 2 were at Kyneton in approx 2001,2002 so i think CD3 was 2003.

 i know CD4 at Broadford was 2007 as i have pics and dates there was a few years between CD3 and CD4 due to Ray's passing.

General Discussion / OZVMX - History / What year did it start ?
« on: April 19, 2019, 10:30:52 AM »
i have been a bit quiet on here of late, but then again so has many others.

i just got to thinking when did the forum start, it has a history i'm guessing back to 2000's era, it got hacked by the Ottomans and others from memory. its glory days of high activity are past due to other media (like spacebook) buts its always been a great resource of collective knowledge.

i miss the incredible resto's that members like Doc used to post up, the suzuki footpeg thread,
the "VMX version of war and piece" - The Sprite/alron saga and other crazy stuff.

it possible you were expecting too much from a 50 year old 2T?

after your 84' CR500 this 250 would be a land crab.

its gonna happen....... ::)

 i predict mainstream MX will be electric in 15 years or sooner, i don't like them as they sound like blenders.... but they do go.

the pollution debate will make this happen and VMX as we know it will become a novelty eventually.

well i think you can hold your head high as from what i can see you have the moral high ground and handled this very well with diplomacy.

i agree business is business and you did not make it personal at all.

The key point is communication and if you were not receiving this there is few excuses for lack of it. it only takes minutes to contact someone in today's world.
