That photo reminds me of a certain bearded Husky rider a few years back  , except I think the Husky may have been pointing the wrong way up .....

Just emailed in 9 entries for this year's Harrow 100
The Dandenong MCC have entered a Victorian state team and there will be 5 other DMCC riders plus support crew.  Range of bikes coming - SWM, KTM, IT, XR, Maico, PE
You will be able to identify us all thanks to Serge Coffa and his excellent jersey printing.  (Yes I have seen the official Harrow shirts - great work!)
Head to my Facebook page Steven Davis if you want to see the bikes we are bringing being prepped/tested and tuned.
Look forward to catching up with everyone

Disaster has struck :o..working away till nxt friday >:( i thought i had best give the husky a turn over and make sure it would go...i mean what could go wrong??? its started everytime (except when i left the rag in the airbox) since i recoed it in 2012....Hmm i noticed the fuel tap has been left on :-\ no probs it always starts after about 10 - 15 kicks when flooded to the hilt...not today...200 kicks, lots of plug cleaning swearing and much unhappiness.... plugs sparking ok after a hit with contact cleaner but nothing in the hole...pushed it around in 3rd no plug... im going to leave the plug out tonight, buy a handfull of new ones and hit it hard tomorrow morning. im off to work in the arvo >:(

You'll have to tip her over & drain the crank case, don't reckon you'll do it by kicking. Maybe a tow will get it clear. Put someone you hate behind it for when it does fire up.

Pull the pipe off and kick it over or push it with no plug. Will probably get lots of raw fuel out. Been there and done that!

We finally got the WR430 Husky started with a new piston and re-bore last night. This is the first time it's ran since seizing at Harrow last year-(bloody Crank Seals)  :o >:(
Anyway State Team- "Victoria's Better" is looking pretty good now that all four members bikes, PE175, PE250, DR400 and WR430 are almost ready to make the trip to hallowed grounds of Harrow on Friday. Lets hope the predicted rain stays away.    Cheers Ryan.

Finer details are being sorted but it will be similar to last year. The practice track will open late morning or lunchtime and remain open for a few hours.

It should be a slightly longer course than last year's natural terrain scramble track.

Bear in mind too, that all bikes being ridden on both days must be registered.

Please note that entries via email have closed. If you haven't sent in your form(s) yet, bring them along with you to Harrow and we'll sort everything out there.

Also, be aware that there is a limited amount of places for the Saturday night dinner. We will have some dinner tickets available to purchase at Harrow, but once we sell all of the allocated spaces that's it.
