2015 Harrow Vinduro, July 25-26.
« on: May 06, 2015, 07:32:24 PM »
Well, only 2 vinduro's in Vic (Beaufort 9/10 May and Hopetoun 20/21 June) as 'warm-ups' before the Harrow classic in July! Best do these two as riding conditioning 'coz you'll need your wits about you if you want to survive the bogs, rivers, greasy logs, fuel bowl emptying open runs and navigation tribulations!

The Europeans took the guernsey last year as, not unexpectedly, the pre-eminent enduro machinery. The riders peeled off an outstanding number of cumulative laps, soundly smashing the Oriental machines riders paltry efforts.

It seems that this year the riders of the Asian leaf blowers have underhandedly lobbied some members of the VERi committee to try and turn back the clock on last years result by having the Harrow course RUN IN THE REVERSE DIRECTION this year! I suspect that Mr GMC has had something to do with this as it seems he has abandoned his Factory Ride BMW175 to putter about on some not quite ripe green thingy and it appears he is looking for any 'advantage' (perceived or otherwise). Not to worry, he patently has cognitive issues if he can't recognise having been on a good thing with the mighty Bimmer.

Stay tuned.

  I think GMC only wants the course reversed this year so he has only to go down the hills

  and not Up them with all that power he had trouble holding the Front wheel down..... ;)

I think that was a typo, it should have read "mighty Bummer"

Stay tuned.

Sounds like good advice, what jets do you recommend?

Well, if you can't take the advice re; tuning, then perhaps coming back to the Bimmer will get you mobile again! Never mind skiting about how many carbies you have - just concentrate on fixing the sad one you need to get the green thingy going. Are you starting to appreciate just how good you had it with your sponsored Factory European Ride? Did you think that the colour of the green thingy matched the greener grass over the fence?  ::)

Yes life was good on team DMC but you failed to supply me a cheque for my living expenses.
I still don't think that 8 Big Macs a day & 3 slabs of Jim Beam a weekend was excessive!


Can't believe you would want to desert the all conquering euro team for the for the losing rice burners.

Well last year it was a Hodaka that deserted the Jap team to become a Euro so there is lots of team jumping going on.
This year we will be checking compliance plates for country of origin, the Euro's will have to win it on the track instead of off it this time.


Well, if you can't take the advice re; tuning, then perhaps coming back to the Bimmer will get you mobile again!

Thanks for the kind offer but all is good, the KDX lives.
Couldn't get the float level right last night, it was either flooding or no fuel coming through at all, in the end I went through the procedure that usually fixes most things...
