money can be sent via PAYPAL to anyone with an account if the sender has the payee's email address that is used for the PAYPAL account. No Problem.

Well, it's that time of year when my server fees become due. I have discontinued the Google advertising on the Ning site, so there's no income from there anymore. So... if anyone can spare a few bucks, please send them along to me via Paypal - gmc99@bigpond.com - or via direct deposit to

Remember, this is not expected of anyone and the site will continue all the same. But if you can help out, it really is very much appreciated.

A huge thank you to those who have helped me out with this, it really is very much appreciated. The Ning site in particular might be gonna cost me more in future given the rate people are posting up photos and videos! It seems to have passed some sort of 'threshold' recently and the traffic there is really taking off. Can only be a good thing huh?

GRAEME,Just sent through my ''membership fees'' hopefully a lot of the other blokes will cough up a bit of coin. I look at it this way it's just like buying the paper every day and this site is a lot more interseting and has a knowledge base that is immeasurable. Cheers. MW.

Thanks MW, it does all help believe me. And even though I get to thinking I'd rather be shot of it sometimes, I am pretty tickled that it's survived and prospered all these years. I think I started it in 2004, so in just two more years it'll be a 'Decade of OzVMX'. I'll have to commission Honest Muzz for that one huh?

Hey Grahame .. I run a hosting space on the side and previously had a server set up my-self.  You are paying for familiarity with "Ning"..
My server package for around 12 sites per year with a local Aust company is $800..  As others have said if you want to swap anything out to reduce the costs we are here to help.

Here's an idea...every one donate their Race number!!!!  (changing mine to a lower number next year) Hahaha...  ;)

Thanks to everyone for the support through the year, especially if I haven't already thanked you personally. Every donation does help, believe me. I now have three websites that I look after and each costs both money and time, so the help I get is always welcomed. Thanks again to all who donated a little or a lot throughout the year.

Cheers
Graeme M

Graeme, thanks for hosting the best, most rounded old dirt bike forum on the 'net. I've trolled around as many dirt bike forums as I can find and am a member of (only) two others and none come within a cooee of hosting the amount of traffic and the variety that this forum does. There's hardly a facet of the vintage dirt bike culture that isn't covered somewhere on here, Hill climbs and dirt drags are the only two that I can think of that don't get a regular go...........Let's hope for bigger and better (if that's possible)in 2013

Well, now that the great forum migration has been carried out successfully, a big thank you to all those who donated to the cause. I really do appreciate the help. And on that note, a special thank you to Nigel who went above and beyond and sent $100 which I found in my post box today. That was particularly fortunate as there were a few glitches in the migration process that meant I was billed an extra $100 which I paid just yesterday. How coincidental is that?

On the whole, with the donations received, I have covered pretty much all my costs for this year with only a minimum from my own pocket. So thanks to everyone who donated, and of course thanks to everyone who is part of making this forum the success that it is.
