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"

Thanks again VERi for organising a new event that was exceptional value considering accommodation was thrown in. (Ear plugs next year if I'm in the dorm!)

Great single track riding with good hills and those slippery roots caught me out a few times. Frosty morning turned into great weather and by the looks on everyone' s faces the track was enjoyed by all.

I didn't realise that Tex had rolled his ute helping recover a bike at Blackwood so there were some stickers available thanks to Serge (I think?) to help fund the repairs.

If you see these at Harrow please grab one for your toolbox as without the dedication from the VERi guys we wouldn't be able to enjoy these events!

These will definitely become future collectables and will only get more expensive to purchase as the quantity available diminishes! They'll be available at Harrow and we might even whack them up for sale through the VERi website before then. Think of the misery Tex will suffer seeing these reminders stuck all over the place - that's worth any asking price!!

The weathers looking good for the weekend! Be a top ride in a special area - there's so much variety. Entry on the day is fine but please print out the entry form, complete it and have the correct entry fee - change will be limited! Don't forget your licence. It just helps keep things moving at sign-in which everyone appreciates.

At this stage there is no Vicroads exemption for recreg bikes for use on road. However, most of the course is ok for recreg. There are two very short road sections which are part of the course but would not present any difficulties to be negotiated off the bike.

This looks like a good thing. I reckon I'll make the trek for a day out watching carnage!

bump  :o

Like the subject asks can anyone transport a wheel-less bike from the Resto Expo 11/12 March at Dargle NSW to Melbourne or somewhere close by to Melb? It's a short travel mx'er with the forks and wheels out so won't take too much room. Happy to discuss renumeration or trades.  :)

They still have engine stuff left - just not Canam stuff.
