When is the scrutimineering etc? I think a few mates were planning on coming up sat arvo, post bike prep after all the bike shops shut for last minute emergency parts.

We were planning on a couple of gazebos and swags or tents.

My 2 bikes are prepped and ready to go. Really looking forward to it and the weather forecast looks great but glad not to be tenting it for a change as it's going to get frosty.  :)
85' Husky TE510, 83' XR250R, 76' DT400C, 81' XL500S, 85' XL250R, 80' XT250, 82' XT200.
Hmmm, What should I buy next?
In case you were wondering it was an 85' CR250R. Then a 76' DT250 and a 01' XR250 and it didn't stop there

Last minute advice for latecomers coming to Bonnie Doon;
Bring your wallet

Everything else we can work around
 ;D



Still have bunk beds in the dorm available for those fearing the great outdoors

and we are still accepting entries on Sat or Sunday

See you there

PS scrutineering will be done Sunday morning so you can be prepping your bike by torchlight Sat night if needed

90 entrants took on the Bonnie Doon course today
The course turned out to be 9 Km long and the fast guys did it in around 30 minutes

Didn't get a chance to take many photos, too busy talking.

A frosty Sunday morning



All you can eat breakfast at the lodge was lucky to survive Sunday morning

Had a great time. Was good to catch up with some familiar faces over a beer around the fire and meet a bunch of new ones as well. Found the loop to be a good test of both me and the bike and am really happy with how the old IT performed. Wish I could say the same for myself as I am feeling it today. :)
Here are some of my pics. Hope to get some video footage up soon also.















Thanks to all the VERI crew for their hard work setting up the event and Thankyou also to Starglen Lodge for their hospitality. The food was great and I was very happy to have a nice room for the night rather than a frosty tent.

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!!
WANTED. Canams;all models,complete or parts.SWM stuff too!

And to think I'd almost recovered from the psychological trauma, my psychiatrist thanks you in advance!  :o

Just love the DKW Don. Not a common mount and great to see it used at these events.
I pulled up and spoke to you when the DKW was bogging. It obviously cleared and continued on its merry way.

cheers Tony
