so it would be wise to trim it down otherwise you will be paying for the cutting of a lot of holes that you are going to throw in the bin

Hmmm, what happens when you throw a lot of holes in the bin? Do they fall out the bottom and just keep on going?

Uh huh. I have customers coming in wringing their hands stating that they've paid too much for a bike and that I should sell them parts cheaper or else they won't make money on the resale. Yep, it's all my fault then.

A lot of effort went into that T, eh Serge! ;D


I was poking back through old Harrow threads and re-found this one from 2015. Lots of fun smack talk and 14 pages of no arguments!! It was good to go back through the thread and got some good laughs and rekindled memories so now I'm looking even more forward to this years event - just as well as I've paid for my entry!  ;D

The MX track was in excellent condition this year. I was manning the track entry and every rider I spoke with praised the track condition. Well done groundsmen!

Hoony, you'll notice that KB's right hand is obscured. He may well be holding a Darwin stubbie..........

Maybe we need a new thread to discuss vinduro eligibility for other clubs/states?

Maybe we should all give it a rest for 3 years.

 ;D  Sounds sensible Mark - nah, it'll never work!!!

Still have one. A bit of race bling and it was my regular race ride in the early/mid 90's. Good bike.

"I can't help feeling like I've forgotten something..."

How are everyone's preparations for Harrow coming along?


Hmmm, yes, somethings forgotten......Ah-HA! I forgot my throttle!

Wanted / CZ '980' front axle needed
« on: June 27, 2017, 07:58:47 AM »
Does anyone have a front axle for a '980' CZ they'd consider to selling? It's the longer type that uses a nut to lock it up.

Pinched from the VERi Vinduro facebook page.

Well, what a top event Bonnie Doon turned out to be! The committee was a little unsure how the venue would be received but judging by the amount of positive feedback it appears that just the right degree of technicality was provided by the course to keep everyone's attention clearly focused on riding  ;D Over 90 riders, including a fair few new faces and some not seen for awhile, braved the literally freezing temperatures. There were very few bikes suffering mechanical woes - except notably Team Penrites Mark Boddy with a wayward kickstarter making life awkward on the little IT125. Typically the boys soldiered on and were all smiles at the end of the day. Sticky throttles and wobbly wheels were thankfully nearly absent, so well done people.

The entry fee for the vinduro had to be the best value ever! Entry, beds, heating, dining, licensed bar, hot showers, running water, great riding - no hassles! The success of the event was in no small means provided by the owners and staff of Starglen Lodge who could not do enough to make everyone feel at home and they were always available to supply a drink or a feed. They were even happy enough with the behaviour of you old reprobates to invite us back for next year!
A lot of effort was contributed by club members (special mentions are Steve and Rodney Woodford, Phil Hearse, the Tolmie boys, Geoff Morris, Steve Davis running rampant with a chainsaw and others who will probably be annoyed about not getting a mention!) in getting the event set up in the weeks prior to the ride.

The most notable feeling I took from the weekend was the social aspect. The majority of attendees were taking advantage of the accommodation deal as well as the dining, bar and, into the wee hours, the bonfire. This venue certainly raised the bar for glamour vinduro! There was plenty of interacting between members Saturday evening and judging by the drawn faces on a few of the riders at the parc ferme Sunday morning maybe a little too much antifreeze had been consumed!

A BIG thanks to those who stayed back a little while at the end of the day and helped clear the course. Thank you, we all got away at a reasonable time.

The next event is the BIG ONE. HARROW. 29/30 July. As Jack Little said...."Be therrrrrrrre"
