Merry Christmas to all you stalwarts on this forum. We're happy to see it still has a useful place in the ever evolving jungle of Social Media and numbers have steadily grown over the year. As we have discovered from our collective love of the old dirt bikes, sometimes the older, simpler and more basic model is more enjoyable and keeps its soul. Hope you are all having a great Xmas with your family, friends & loved ones and getting in some quailty R&R time

This time in 3 Months we'll be settling down around a campfire at RE019. Are you on track to have those bikes ready?
More importantly, how's your 80s fancy dress costume going for Saturday night's party?

Bracket racing classes are based purely on lap times, no mater what your riding. A little more tricky in mx but a similar system could be done. A novelty at least.?

Gotcha! I like it. thanks

*bracket racing just like in road race clubs? could be a good option to race people in your own skill level.
*the cost of racing is getting out of hand. It cost me $160 to race a grass track not long ago.
*non MA events?

By bracket racing do you mean something like A, B & C grades?

Was washing my air filters last weekend and the glue on 3 of 4 of them let go! I came to this forum and searched the term 'air filter glue' In minutes I found some great info on what has worked for others. The mighty RZ may still get a run this weekend  ;D
Kenneth, for those of us less ofay with searches and how they work, what did you use to glue your filters?

Thanks in advance


Greg the 2 answers I got was others have had success with good old fashioned Tarzan's Grip and the blue glue you use to connnect PVC pipes. I bought some of both today and will be trying it tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes mate

Like everyone says: More races at Green Park, Connondale, QLD.
I would say the grass track that Armidale MC uses is better than Connondale for vintage bikes and it's in NSW where Heaven events are held.

Duly noted (Insert thumbs up here :D)

Time machine, but then again i would use it to go back to 1979 and nail Monique Van der Vlught.

I don't think you thought this through Hoony, you really think this young Monique is going to fancy an old Hoony that steps out of his time machine

Hahaha ;D

2019 Classic Nats
9/10/11 August
Queensland ( Harrisville SEQ )

Has this been changed? The original advertising was listed as early September

I'm a keen VMXer, love Motocross and my club Heaven VMX. I plan to stand for a committee position for 2019 and if I am successful will work with the committee with whatever influence I have to add as much enjoyment as possible to each and every club weekend ride/race meeting for all VMX fans. If you once did race but don't now I'd like to know what would bring you back?

The OzVMX Forum and Facebook Group page is all about enjoying the fun of old dirt bikes and preserving the history of this great sport we all share. The annual OzVMX Resto Expo is an opportunity for all of us to get together in a relaxed and naturally beautiful environment at an Australian Iconic location and enjoy the sport in the way we choose.

If you have a few bikes in the shed, bring them along, we want to see them all on display

If you want to have a relaxed ride without the intensity of racing, there will be 2 tracks to ride on including the cruisy grass track and for RE3 a tamed down variation of the Famous Dargle Motocross track.

If you just want to camp on the riverbank and bench race with your mates the location is perfect for that as well.

Live music both nights and plenty of great food on sale.

This event is for you guys

I've used PBI on my race bikes for about 4-5 years and they have lasted really well. I order them direct from the US, the shipping is reasonable and I usually receive them within 2 weeks.

The forum is here to stay boys. I have no plans to do anything but keep it going. No need for ads to fund it. I'm using proceeds from the OzVMX Resto Expo to cover the forum running costs. I'll see what I can find out about posting images. I have tried Imgur after asking Dennis what he is using and it works great. Thanks for hanging around
