Wow, what great old photos. When was that, maybe 2002 or so? That #555 gets around eh? And what about that hard charging #81R - that dude took no prisoners. As for the young fella me lad with the trophy, barely old enough to shave!

Heh, I miss those days. Back then we were being nostalgic, riding the old bikes of our youth. Now I am nostalgic for the good old days of being nostalgic...

 So we Now Know that   Rider Number 50  is    Graeme  M    

 Do you still wish you had the HL  and it was a  True HL  and not a  Made up HL ....

The Coopers Gully days were damn fine days weren't they?  A hugely memorable time for us in the Canberra VMX circle.  Early starts tho to get down to Bega in time - 5am meetups on the highway just south of Canberra, convoy drive there, race/pit talk all day, then head home, stopping for classic meat pies on the way.  Graeme, Dennis, Lex, Glenn, Eric.  I was lucky enough to join this august group in time to enjoy three or so years of fabulous coopers gully grasstrack outings before times changed and it was no more (for us anyway).

I think the last one was one that Graeme and I went to in maybe 2010 (?), where Graeme got taken out heavily in the first corner of the first race, and kept it up (the crashing) all day long. 

And that as they say was that!
