With a little over a month to go it's time to get ready for this years event. Fortunately there hasn't been the down pour and flooding that cancelled last years event so this year is going to be awesome.

For those who haven't attended the event before, the loop is approx 15kms in length and is a nice mix of open and tight natural terrain sections, with an extended grass track. It is a MUST DO event on the Vinduro calender.

This will be a 1 day event with riding on Saturday only.

Just an update. I have replied to all emails thus far.

There will be tea/coffee, lunch and snacks available from 10am on Saturday. This year the Holbrook club will be putting on a roast dinner on Saturday night. Dinner is $20 including desert. Please email me if you wish to purchase dinner as we are recording numbers for catering. This must be paid for along with your entry fee on the day.

Cheers Brooksie.

It's less than a month away now so if you haven't already get those bikes out and prepare them for a top weekend.  ;).
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

Well guys another Cookardinia Vinduro done and dusted for 2017. A big thankyou to all that attended. We ended up with 65 riders which was pretty decent after a year off from the event with the great floods of 2016. There were at least a dozen or more no shows that would have pushed the entrants to the mid to high 70's. To those who didn't make it there's always 2018.

COOKARDINIA VINDURO 2nd JUNE 2018
As always a big thankyou to the Holbrooks Motorcycling Sports Club for supporting the event. To Murray for letting us use your amazing property and Debbie Jones and her friends for supplying lunch and dinner after the event. It was great to see people going back for seconds. To our sponsors MCA Supermarket and Whithorse Motorcylcles for supplying some awesome prizes for the raffle. I'm sure a few people came away with some goodies. To all the helpers a big thankyou, Troy Shiphard, Gary Chynoweth, for helping set up and processing registrations.

And finally a big thankyou to all that attended. I hope you enjoyed the loop. I managed to get 4 laps in myself on Saturday arvo and was buzzing with excitment after flogging my IT200 around the loop. The wooded section was very free flowing with a few obstacles thrown in for good measure.

Talking to a few guys kicking back on Saturday arvo near the fire they said "this event is different, it's relaxed and there's no pressure to get laps done for a gold sticker". I said " Exactly no pressure, that's what Cooka has always been about. Come and go as you please". It was great to here positive comments about the event. It was also great to see so many new faces and greet some of the originals from 2011 who continue to support the event.

For the finale on Saturday we gave out trophies for Best Pre 85 bike, best Pre 93 and Best Dressed.
Those winners were:  Best Pre 85 bike Brian Tyne 1984 KDX200
                                Best Pre 93 bike Garry Brooke 1990 TT250
                                Best Dressed Glenn Day aboard a KTM wearing the same outfit since the early 80's

So kick back and enjoy some of my pics from the event.
Cheers Brooksie.

A suspension rebuild and an early start. I got 4.5 hours sleep in the 48 hours leading up to the event. The things we do ;)




Fields of Canola. We must be getting close to Cooka.


Blink and you'll miss it!!!!

The steepness of the property is quite deceiving in places.

  Well , looks like it was another great event  this year .
Nice pics
I have only been able to make it to one event  there (2013) & it was superb . A great ride.
Hard  work & a lot of hours  to put on such an event  .
 Well done to Mr Brooks & those involved in staging this event.
 
 However , what's with the " gold sticker " reference ? .

  A  "ride at your leisure "  message   is conveyed to everyone  , at the riders brief , at all the other  events I've attended .
 
 
 
Talking to a few guys kicking back on Saturday arvo near the fire they said "this event is different, it's relaxed and there's no pressure to get laps done for a gold sticker". I said " Exactly no pressure, that's what Cooka has always been about. Come and go as you please".

As always Steve you seem to find the silver lining in people's post. It must be all those years of experience trolling forums. I'm mearly expressing some general opinions shared by some guys that attended.
I'm not sure what they are referring to because I don't ride remember ????
I'm just a bit busy polishing plastics.
Perhaps if you attended you could have asked them yourself ????...... but what was it you said to me once....Oh yeah "I'm not travelling all that way for a one day event" your words not mine.
