Title: CD-5
Post by: DJRacing on November 03, 2007, 08:06:08 AM
I know I'm probably pushing my luck but, is there going to be one, and where and when ???

TMBill and myself, our partners(a couple of bikes ;D) and of course our 'buying governors'("but your've got 3 of those already" ;D) want to make the trip over. We need to start a plan of attack for this great Aussie VMX icon. Shipping, travel, accommodation(camping?), Trying to talk someone over there to hireing a pit tent to us so we dont burst in flame ;D. Getting someone to clear a 1000m radius of snakes, spiders, croc's and anything else that is deadly(Klub Kevlar Magaritas exempt) ;D.

It would be great to put a few faces to the names in here and then have a ride or 2. Of course I know a few sheep shagger jokes will be told, so thats another reason why we need to know the date to learn all our come-backs ;D.
Anyway, yeah as I say I know I'm pushing it but, I got $20 in my pocket and a bike on the truck, I wanna go riding. Bring on CD-5......please!!! ;D

Post by: AjayVMX on November 03, 2007, 09:42:38 AM
Hi guys.

Organising CD5 is taking some time (as did CD4) and we have to dot our i's cross our t's before we go public. ;)

Suffice to say, CD5 will be held in 2008, and details of date and location will be officially announced in VMX issue #32, which we are planning to get out a couple of weeks before Christmas. 8)

There should be enough time for our Kiwi friends to get organised and join us.   Naturally, it would be great to have them come along and join the fun. :)

would we be able to twist your arm Ajayster and give us the State it will possibly be held in?
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: AjayVMX on November 03, 2007, 10:07:04 AM
Do you want the long or the short answer?

short answer:  No.

long answer:   Nnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooo. ;)

Nothing is finalised at this stage, otherwise we would announce it now. ::)

Ajay its all good, me and Bill will be ready for the mystery VMX tour where ever it is ;D, we'll just throw on some AD/DC, Hunters & Collectors and Kiss and just rock on down to it. I'm just looking forward to having a few(or alots) of beers with all your blokes and talking the bullshit and bikes ;D. We will try to bring over as many photos and videos of NZ vmx for you guys to look at if ya wanna.(when the boredom kicks in we can drink more ;D), thats if anyone wants ta drink with us ;D.  We want to come over about 3 days before so we can find a good beer to drink at the event ;) ;D.  Maybe even take in a shed tour while the girls are doing there thing(shopping ::)).

Hoony, didnt ya know that riding a 5hundy for 30mins is against the drinking laws :D One of your fellow VMXers should've black flagged ya ;D

Post by: brent j on November 03, 2007, 12:47:04 PM
DJ, I hope to see you and Bill there and I'll be bringing a spare bike.
Don't worry, it'll be a Yamaha but you'll have to learn to ride a 4 stroke!
What about Geraldo and Darryl?




Brent
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: DJRacing on November 03, 2007, 01:19:15 PM
Brent it will be good ta see ya again ;D and thanks for the offer. I would say Geraldo would be busy with his new job and promoting the products he is selling now and Darryl has just started up a MX team so that will have him pulling his hair out(will at least keeping his spare time occupied). Bill and myself have had a bit of a chat about it and we thought maybe a camper van and a decent sized trailer(never know what we'll bring or for that matter take home with us ;D). Of course you and all the other ex kiwis over there will probably be stirring up the Trans-Tasman rivally before we get there and then probably drop it all in our laps ;D. Luckly TMB is fast talking and I will be able to make a quick getaway before the boomarangs start flyin our way ;D. Hopefully me and Bill can bring some lovely kiwi mud with us ;) for all the ockers to slip 'n slide in ;D.
Hey Ajay, when does issue 32 go off to the printers ??? Wouldnt you have to already know the wheres and whens will before that ;) ;D. just kidding, so long as we get our magazines before the Tassie guys again its all good ;D

Now don't you blokes even think about bringing any of that NZ Hot Bubbling Mud over here !

actually one of the best things i enjoyed about CD4 was meeting forum members and chatting, i do look forward to having a yarn as there is some great characters on this forum.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: DJRacing on November 03, 2007, 05:07:35 PM
Totally in agreement with that Hoony(characters in this forum). Thats what I will be going over for as will. When you see me ride you will wonder why I even bought a bike over ::) ;D. Hey what do ya mean we cant bring some good old kiwi mud ??? I heard last year everyone had a ball in the mud ;D
Title: Re: CD-5

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: brent j on November 03, 2007, 07:52:25 PM
As soon as a date gets out I'll start making plans.

Perfection for me would be a week before Conondale, then there's Proserpine (about then?) and off to my sisters wedding in FNQ the week after. Hey I can dream can't I???????????????????

Geraldo, hope to see you there, finally I might get a chance to repay your hospitality.
I could always paint the TT green if that makes it easier to ride :)

short answer:  No.

Nothing is finalised at this stage, otherwise we would announce it now. ::)

If you don't have a venue, can I suggest that the ACT track (Fairbairn) would be well worth a look? Has a not-too brutal MX track, a dirt track, and possibly some areas for other riding. Plus the ACT club seems willing to allow the track to be toned down for old bikes.

And Canberra is about as far from Sydney as previous CDs have been from Melbourne.

Post by: maicomc490t on November 05, 2007, 12:15:13 AM

The smart money would be on the ACT

This event is more about getting together and having a good time, and so it should be accessable to more VMX enthusiasts by it's geographical centrality. Perhaps Ken and the team have a demographic profile of readers by now which they are using to establish the greatest concentration of likly starters?
Still who cares - I'd go if it was in Tasmania, lol

Enjoy ya working week boys and girls !!!!!!!!!!!  ;)

Com'on Ajay stop trying to change the subject, we can see what you are trying to do ;). Just spill the beans and let everyone know that you and the boys have picked New Zealand for CD-5 to keep the travel cost even for everyone, and that will guarantee that Geraldo will come, maybe ;) and then all you Aussie boys get to rip up some prime kiwi green ;D.

I'm not sure how to repond to the proposal of ripping up some prime Kiwi green.... :o

Are we talking an active golf course as a CD venue ;D 

If so, I'll be on the plane to discuss it tomorrow... ;)

Post by: Yamaboy on November 06, 2007, 10:34:01 AM
I'll bet my goolies that CD5 will be in NSW, not too far from a major city. No inside info here, just some detective work and recently overheard conversations. It would be nice to see it back at Barrabool though as Broadford was not the greatest of venues but I reckon NSWs got the well deserved nod this time. 
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: AjayVMX on November 06, 2007, 10:45:57 AM
You clearly have been caught up in the Melbourne Cup gambling fever, betting your goolies like that... :o

Are you trying to goad us into going to Barrabool just so you can sing soprano in the church choir?  ::)  That's a big call...

As I said before, and as I write this right now, NOTHING is certain at this stage.... :-\

When it is certain, will be letting everyone know!  8)

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: DJRacing on November 06, 2007, 03:42:29 PM
I wouldnt suggest that at all TMB ;D, and I'm sure Ajay and the boys have asked Geraldo what dates are good for him and when the rugby is on. We couldnt have Geraldo getting up in the middle of the night at CD-5 to go to watch a rugby game ;D ;D now could we ???
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: vmx42 on November 06, 2007, 07:33:54 PM
DJ,
Don't worry DJR, there is no point getting up to watch the rugby, well not if you want to see a team actually score a try!!
If there is a test on, Ajay will probably have a big screen on order.

So Ajay, after not mentioning the rugby, can we get back on to the subject of CD-5? Now what was that date again ??? ;D  I hope you realize that a KISS concert is coming up and all us 40 somethings are gonna want ta be rock'n and roll'n all night long, so its best if you dont have a clash of dates ;) ;D ;D.

Nah, its gotta be in Vicco (the heart & soul of VMX in Oz) besides CD 1,2,3, & 4 has been in Vic, next you blokes will be wanting to hold the AFL grand final in another state as well. "Damn you Heathens"  ;D :D

The hallowed soil of "The Bool" would be the obvious place, could also be a help to the Sporting Motorcycle Club to help kept this shit hot piss cutter track. riding Barrabool in its prime is something else.

I will make an announcement tomorrow, right here on OzVMX, as to the identity of the mystery rider.  You'll be the first to know, before it even goes up on the VMX website.

As for some of the other questions (and yes, a more detailed outline of the event will be up on the website late this week or early next week) -

Camping is definitely available at the venue.

The track is being resurfaced over January and we're told there will be a clay base (to cover any existing rocks) covered by fresh soil.

Call back here tomorrow for news on the guest rider!

Regards

Ken

Well, it's tomorrow already so I better do what I said I was going to do and let you know who will be attending CD5.  VMX Magazine and Suzuki Australia are proud to announce (world first scoop here on OzVMX by the way) that the mystery rider is........

Joel Robert

We're very happy to say the least and yes, Joel will be doing a few laps on both Saturday and Sunday.  From the chats I've had with him so far all I can say is that he's very friendly and very keen to meet everyone downunder.  There'll be more news on the website in a few days time.  Don't know about you but I'm pretty excited!

Wow :o, for no other reason than to be in the presence of the great man is reason enough for me to be there. You could hold CD5 at Perth and I'll be there ;).

I might even buy a CZ 8)  (Suzuki, never :-X). I'll have to re-read that excellent article that was recently in VMX.

A genuine international superstar for sure, and we all read it here first. Cool alright. Hmmm... maybe I should take the TM along for that obligatory tank signing? Great news, especially that he'll do a few laps. Who would ever have thought we'd see that in Oz? CD5 is sounding brilliant isn't it? I'll be there Friday early this time!!!

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Noel on December 16, 2007, 10:31:37 AM
"Classic Dirt 5 will be held on April 25/26/27 at Barleigh Ranch, Raymond Terrace, NSW. Cool

For those that don't know, Raymond Terrace has a new leasee who is putting a great deal of time and money into the facility and if you haven't been there recently, you would be very pleasantly surprised at how improved the facility and track are already, with more improvements due to be in place prior to the running of CD5.

Included in the improvements will be a complete track resurfacing, which should make it very Vintage bike friendly for CD5.

We also feel that the general layout of the Raymond Terrace facility will be ideal for CD5, as it has a natural ampitheatre in front of the track which will form the focus for activities during the event.

As a lot of people ended up jumping the gun last year and turned up on the Friday, we have decided this year to have a Welcome BBQ on the Friday afternoon, to celebrate the Anzac spirit, so be sure to "bring a mate" to CD5. Wink

Once again, it needs to be said that CD5 would not be possible without the generous support of Suzuki, our major event sponsor."

Logistics planning is underway as we speak. I know team Dodgee/Suzuki Central will be a happening thing but I feel sure we can add a few more 'I wanna go too' to the list. The Kiwi connection aka TMBill and DJRacing may even be making the jump across the ditch so things really are taking on an international flavour. All good! Jeez if I could get Joels' autograph on a particular item I'd be real impressed and that chance alone makes this a must attend gathering of like minded old buggers (and buggerettes)  ;D

is there a yamaha central? or do i need to make my own...

I don't seem to ride it as much as flap off the back of it, so I'm keen to see what your superior skills but, er.. inferior weight can do on it.

And besides, I know that you will have TMB and DJR close by, and I reckon the three of us might be able to exert enough peer pressure to get you to have a beer or three.

i still think Joel will be a little dissapointed with that one 414!

Gator, as for the terrace track, it was many years ago i used to ride there but if you can think of a cross between stanmore and tivoli you'll be close.
some nice uphill runs and i remember when they first put in thier double jump,
it was a whopping 15-20feet across.
it was years ago folks...

oops! the age is showing!
5 minutes later and i'm back to edit.
mentioning stanmore and tivoli will only help the brisbane guys, for everyone else it probably don't make no sense.

Hilly,
Been working on a new trailer "Chataeu Bahnsy" for nearly a year now. Overall 7Mts long with a 5.2 x 2 x 2 mt box on it. Should have enough room for 6 bikes. I am planning on taking the RM400 and the KX500.

I was planning (planning being a very loose word) on getting there on Friday afternoon and leaving Monday morning sometime. Will have 2 other bods on board plus another 3-4 bikes as well.

The Klub Kevlar Logistics Komittee visited Barleigh Ranch this morning to check out the scenario for CD5. The boys were shocked to find that the whole place except for the dirt track has been levelled to a flat paddock and the irrigation plumbing is being laid out prior to the construction of a totally new track and pit area. They report that a construction crew was hard at it and Todd Hughes, the man in charge took the Komittee on a guided tour of the proposed new track, pit area and camping facilities. Although it appears that there's a lot of work to be done, Todd was adament that the rebuild will be ready within a few weeks and the grass and landscaping should be in full growth before CD5.
Whatever you do, don't miss this great event.

Just in our little KK group we're bringing up to 5 bikes each which will total out at 30- 40 bikes in our Kamp alone. We'll have two blenders, two BBQ's plus the Weber, a pre fab bar and of course the bottomless Klub Kevlar girls passing out hors'deuves and bubbly to guests. Expect to see some very cool and exotic dirt bikes in our quikshade this year including the world debut of Black Bettys little sister Violet.

Hey James,
Don't fret. You got your dates all wrong. DD is on April 3-6 and CD5 isn't on until the end of April 25-27. Plenty of time to make both events.

Based on CD4, provided that MA's maximum number of riders on the track at once isn't exceeded, then it's pretty well a free-for-all.
There was a bit of mucking around with era-specific sessions (trailbikes, then pre-Evo and then post Evo, IIRC), but that fell by the wayside pretty quickly.

Everyone gets booted off for the special events, like the Legends Laps.

Post by: vmxken on January 11, 2008, 01:12:47 PM
While we haven't finalised the schedule for each day as yet, the intention will again be to run riding sessions split up as they were at CD-4.  The concept wasn't enforced primarily due to the issues we were having with flag marshalls (i.e attracting sufficient numbers) so the changeovers between 'classes' meant riders weren't getting sufficient track time.

That issue won't happen at CD-5 as we will have full-time flaggies and hence the system should work smoothly.  There will still be tons of track time for EVERYONE.

Thanks

Ken

What and where is a motel somewhere close to sydney airport that we can stay at so I can pick my bike up from the Quantas frieght depot.
We are looking at flying over on the Sunday the 20th and I will have to pick my bike up as soon as it arrives in the Oz. I have made inquieries into renting a campervan to transport us and the bikes to Raymond terrace. Its been along time since I was last in Sydney so it will be nice to have a look around again.

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Nathan S on January 14, 2008, 12:54:01 PM
Fair enough; but can you explain the CD concept to me?
I understand the bigger than big Carnival atmosphere but how do the bikes operate on the track?
Is it like a practice day - classes as usual?

Given that I've been asked an almost identical question via PM, here's how CD4 worked:

1. Everyone turns up with (or without) their bikes and gear.
2. You pay a smallish amount of money to get in.
3. You pay a small amount of money to ride, if you want to ride (and a small amount extra to get a MA recreational licence if you want to ride but don't already have a MA competition licence).
4. Everyone walks around to meet people, talk bikes, talk shit, buy stuff, sell stuff, and generally check out all of the different bikes people have brought along.
5. Most people get on the grog at night.
6. Track is made 'vintage friendly' - most jumps were very gentle, no whoops, etc.
7. The riding sessions were run with a "get out there and enjoy yourself" approach. There were fast guys, slow guys and everyone in the middle, all with big grins. Blokes with flannos and jeans on old DTs, through to guys with 85 model 500s who know how to pilot them.
8. Nothing remotely like formal racing, although boys being boys, there was a fair bit of dicing going on within the pack. But all very polite, I should add - VMX racing is far less intense than moderns, and this is much less intense again.
9. Everyone gets turfed off the track for the Legends Laps, and then the heroes go out and ride and we all get to comment on how much faster we are than them...  :D
10. There's educational/memory lane talks from guest speakers in the evening.

Think Summernats for old dirt bikes, but without the egos or the drunken louts.

The positives are many, rules are few and far between (and are not there just for the sake of making rules).
Downsides? Getting roosted by instant heros who are taking new Suzukis for a test ride and suddenly think they're god's gift, is the only one I can think of.

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: firko on January 14, 2008, 07:53:42 PM
Summernats without the dickhead quota is pretty right. CD is the realisation of Ray Ryans philosophy that there is more to the love of old dirt bikes than just racing them. Ray always believed that the major percentage of VMX readers were non racing enthusiasts and from Day 1 at Classic Dirt 1 he was proven right. Classic Dirt draws together anyone with a love of old dirt bikes, no matter what size or where they are made . It's an event where former Mr Motocross winners or multi Aussie champions can sit and have a beer with the bloke whose only connection to the movement is restoring the DT1 his uncle gave him. Champion egos are thankfully nowhere to be seen.
Shown below is 1972 Australian 250 Champ and Mr Motocross great Per Klitland in Kamp Kevlar leaning against my old Maico which he later rode. Per wasn't sure that Classic Dirt was going to be his thing until he got there. From the very first moment he got sucked into the event and found himself having a ball catching up with old racing mates and signing autographs. I believe he'll be back this year, hopefully riding the restored OW Yamaha on which he came within a smidge of winning the 1975 Mr Motocross.

Post by: vmxken on February 11, 2008, 02:26:48 PM
Hi - just a quick update on a couple of things that are happening at CD-5 that should be of interest to many of you.

Firstly, MA has confirmed that they will have a staff member in attendance for the whole weekend to undertake noise testing.  But it isn't what you think.  MA have agreed to test anyone's bike, and give a written report, for future reference ONLY.  The event itself is NOT to be tested, as it's not a race meeting, MA have just very kindly offered to be on hand and give anyone that wants it, a report on their bike's noise level, measured of course with MA equipment, by a qualified MA tester.  So you will know right there and then if your bike does or doesn't meet the new standards, or indeed if it's close or simply way too loud.  You can go back as many times as you like for retesting if you want to do some mods while you're at the event.  I think that's a great initiative on MA's behalf and I bet that the tester will have a busy weekend!

Also, YSS have offered to have a walk-in suspension clinic on the Friday afternoon.  You can take your bike into their 'tent' and have the YSS boys go over it with you in regard to spring rates, sag, damping and so on.  Doesn't matter what bike or what suspension you're using, they just want to take some of the mystery out of setting up your suspension correctly.  Again, I expect that this service will be very busy as well, as it should be very helpful to a lot of riders.

More updates shortly.

Regards

Ken

The Kevlar girls will indeed be assisting Walter with his suspension tests. It was to be a surprise but I guess the cat is now out of the bag. They will also be passing out free Champagne and hors d'ouvres to passing punters and selling "Win a Ride on Black Betty" raffle tickets. We have to keep the girls busy or they get frisky and want to get naked all the time. Klub Kevlar has more class than that so we insist that they keep their shirts on so as not to offend the wives and kiddies.

Reading up in anticipation of CD5 I see that the Dirt Track is "not available", which is a bit of a shame seeing it is so close to the MX track. Any reason that can be told? We'll possibly miss out on some very interesting Hunter Valley "short circuit" bikes seeing this was Australia's stronghold for this type of motorcycling.

If CD 5 is a no water cooling, no disk brake and no linkage suspension weekend would it be ok to bring a Maico `82  ALPHA 1 and ride it?
The reason i ask is i have an opportunity to buy it and would like Les Richters to run his eye over it
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Graeme M on February 20, 2008, 06:46:28 PM
That's not quite right Ted. The event is Pre 85, so anything made before then is fine, linkage, water cooling and discs included...  You'll be right.

We'll possibly miss out on some very interesting Hunter Valley "short circuit" bikes seeing this was Australia's stronghold for this type of motorcycling.

The possibility of including Dirt Track in CD5 was the subject of considerable discussion, however it was decided not to include it for several reasons.

The primary reason is that adding the Dirt Track to the CD5 activities greatly increases the complexity and cost of running the event.  It requires an additional First Aid crew, organisers etc...  It also means that we may have to reduce track time for the MX track.

Another reason is the lack of attendance of dirt track riders at CD4.  While there appeared to be lots of apparent excitement prior to the event last year, the reality is that only 13 riders actually paid to ride DT.  While this may be slightly more in the Hunter region, it may not also.

In particular, my feeling is that Dirt Track is an activity that is probably far less exciting in the Classic Dirt non-competitive format and this may have been reflected in the attendance at CD4 as well.

Lastly, it's a possibility that the Dirt Track area at Raymond Terrace will have to be used for overflow parking, if the event is very well attended.

Having said all that, (and if the Dirt Track area is not used for parking), there is a slight possibility that a Dirt Track "Demonstration" will take place sometime during the weekend, but please note that the participants in the Demonstration will be by invitation only, in the same manner as "Legends Laps".

Les Richters and I took a run out to Barleigh Ranch today to check out the progress of the upgrading. The construction crew led by new promoter Todd Hughes were really going for it with excavators, bulldozers and bobcats trying to catch up on the time they lost due to the unseasonal rains. Todd assured me that all is well and it'll be up and running in beautiful condition by CD5.
I must admit that I was pretty impressed by all of the activity going on today. Although the track still has quite a way to go before it's ridable, it looked pretty impressive to me once Todd and Roger Starkey explained the layout to me. Bring on CD5!

Hunter racer Kev Crossey has laid a challenge to Klub Kevlar that demands an immediate response. The otherwise amicable Crossey is under the sorrowful delusion that he makes the best Chili Con Carne in the Southern Hemishpere. We here at the Kevlar Kitchen believe that out 'Ring of Fire' Deluxe Gourmet Chili is the rightful holder of that title. We have challenged Crossey and his turgid slop to a Chili shootout in the Kevlar Kompound at a time to be announced during the CD5 festivities. Rumours are also flowing in from accross the Northern border that another 'Greatest Chili' contender is also intending to challenge for the CD5 Chili con Carne title. This particular Queensland racer,famous for his yellow works bikes, is adament that his chili is the best. We are hoping to form a judging panel of VIPs to decide once and for all just who is the VMX Chili King.

The DT1 I phoned you about yesterday was a much later model 72/73 what a pisser and finally is the blender tuned up getting there on Thursday for a warm up with Andrews he is bunking with me the lucky bugger.

That's a shame about the DT1 Suzbulvarna. The white ones are the cool ones. Big Kev is about to get an ego whipping when the starving hoard at CD5 run past his imitation Chili to savour the authentic TexMex flavours of our Ring of Fire delight. Andrews and you bunking down together is nothing compared to Kiwi Jolleys secret room mate. It's a tad scary. The blender is in getting a refit as we speak but there will be at least one, possibly two more in the Kevlar Kompound.
I won't be there 'til late on Thursday arvo as I have to pick up Jolley and Kawaboy at the airport.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: AjayVMX on February 27, 2008, 10:49:04 AM
Hi everyone.

Firko's last post has prompted me to just clarify a couple of things, just so there's no misunderstandings about CD5.

The first one is that Firko is being allowed to come to the venue on the Thursday afternoon specifically to coordinate the setup of his marquee for Klub Kevlar.  We don't want everyone to think that this means it's OK to arrive on Thursday arvo - it's not.  General Entry to the event will only commence on Friday morning at the advertised time, so please do not try and turn up on Thursday and try to jump the queue for camping spots.  You will be politely asked to come back tomorrow... ::)

The second issue is one that may not have been highlighted, but we think that it should be, just to make doubly sure that there are no misunderstandings at CD5.  The issue is Juniors on Minibikes.  :o

No doubt many of you will know that we adopted a fairly loose approach to Juniors riding minibikes at CD4.  This levity was badly abused by some and ended up causing us quite a lot of lost time, heartache and hassle, which frankly we don't need at CD5.  We are there to have fun too, not have to play bad cop to kids which aren't being supervised by their parents. :(

As a result of this (and also because the venue is not quite as large) we are not going to allow ANY riding of motorcycles, be they large or small, by Juniors at the venue as a whole.  No exceptions.

So please do not come along, expecting for your kids to be able to ride their minibikes like they may have done last year.  Arguments like "it was OK last year" and "no-one told me" are not going to be acceptable.  If you also have friends who don't visit this forum, but are likely to come to CD5, please also let them know.

Please don't be in any doubt:  If a Junior is caught riding a minibike at CD5, it will mean that they and their parent/gardian will be instantly excluded from the event, and obviously this will wreck Dad's weekend as well.

The bottom line is that CD5 is not about Juniors riding minibikes, it's about having fun riding Vintage bikes. ;)

Ajay, you are jumping the gun a little. When I wrote the following..................
"I won't be there 'til late on Thursday arvo as I have to pick up Jolley and Kawaboy at the airport"............................... I was referring to the Motto Farm motel at Raymond Terrace, not the track. We were well aware that the event doesn't kick off 'til Friday.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: AjayVMX on February 27, 2008, 06:21:55 PM
Firko,

The only place mentioned in the post was the Klub Kevlar compound and the post also indicated you would be "there" on Thursday arvo... so I don't think I was jumping the gun.

Maybe you could have been more specific in your post as to where "there" was.

One thing's for sure, we don't want there to be any confusion and have people turn up on Thursday through a misunderstanding and consequently get pissed off.  Hence my clarification.

If you haen't got an MA licence then you can buy a day recreation licence, I think $20.00 from memory.
The normal stuff I imagine, boots, helmet, gloves & goggles.
And your bike will be scrutinised, oh yes, it will be scrutinised all right. It will be scrutinised by several hundred spectators so just be sure if your going to claim your bike is original that it is, because their will be someone thier that will know if a 8mm bolt with a 12mm head has been replaced with a 8mm bolt with a 13mm head ;D ;D ;D

The girls have decided to do a love story with an action classic so they're combining
"Love Story" with "The Battle of Stalingrade". All five hours of it.
Sebastion is playing "Bubbles", Clarence is filling the roll as Obersteppenfurrers Klink's rottweiler "Dinky" and I have to make Russian and German uniforms for about 1.5 million extras.

Forgive me pls for a hijack here but it appears not all are getting the 'noise emmisions' debate.
Another thread has appeared in the Competition page as 'Decibels'.
This is serious. Fatboy advises it all comes to a head when the Board meets on 26 March.
I'm cutting and pasting from that thread into a couple of the high interest threads (like this one) in the hope some will respond to the noise emmisions issue:


Jeez fellas, Fatboy says MA have received only six or eight responses to the noise limit debate!
That is tragic - and hardly a groundswell of dissent.
How many members are on this Forum......?

Given the volume of written traffic on this Forum can we pls all make an effort to send a letter to MA?
Fatboy has provided the link (and it's no different to posting on this Forum).

Come on guys if you want to see him with the legends let us know. He will be easy to spot [even without his name on the back of his jersey]. Joel won't know what hit him!!

Who's interested??????

I'm in. I vote 1 for vmxken to put down some hot laps with the legends.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: vmxken on March 29, 2008, 04:41:18 PM
Yes Jeff, I will be easy to spot, I'll be the one waving them off.  The only reason I'd be venturing onto the track while Joel is out there, would be to hand him a beer after the second or third lap, in case he was feeling a bit thirsty.

I told Joel last night that there'll be two other guys out riding in Legends Laps who raced against him in Oz in '72 and he thought that was pretty cool.

Forgive me for sounding like a stuck record but i notice jeff leisk is not on the legends list, is this because he cannot attend,  does not want to attend or not invited because he is "to new a rider".   You probably will notice i am/was a big leisk fan. What he did going to the USA then to europe takes balls. Anyone remember Holland 89 ?, first 500GP .Leisk went off like a scolded cat only to run out of fuel on the last lap.

How many pre78  125cc are going to CD-5? 

And can someone tell me the helmet rating standard I have to have. (E4)??
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Nathan S on March 30, 2008, 01:14:39 PM
I'll bring my 125X, my 125C (hopefully), and my 125D (maybe).
If the DT125A is half as funny/scary as Uncle Lozza is promising/threatening, and I have the space, then I'd like to bring it too.

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: vandy010 on March 30, 2008, 01:33:20 PM
my little mx125a bundle of fun will also be in attendance,
no need to be too concerned DJ, your little noguci will be in good company.
and along with my RT1, so i'll be pretty busy in the pre 78 ride sessions.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: GD66 on March 30, 2008, 02:15:20 PM
 It's getting bigger.... and DJ, your E4 helmet will comply. As a basis, scrutineers will be looking for AS1698, the Australian Standards sticker; just refer them to Appendix 1 in the Manual of Motorcycle Sport which has a helmet equivalency table. That's right son, to ride an mxer in Oz, you'd better be up to scratch on the dreaded PAPERWORK....

Dave, you can rest assured that Jeff Leisk is most definitely on the list of Legends who is invited.  This year, we understand that he was extremely tempted to come along, but work and family commitments have prevented his attendance.  :'(

We even sent Magoo over to the west to try and implore him to come, but unfortunately it's not going to happen for CD5.

He is a true Aussie legend of MX of course and we would really love to see him at CD6...  we shall keep trying to get him to come along. ;)

Dave King can sell you a copy of the famous 1989 500cc GP at Namur with Leisky putting it to Geboers and Thorpey - its one of the best races I've ever seen, and shows the big 2 bangers in action at their very peak of development. 

Leisk was clearly the most talented Aussie never to win a world championship.  I look forward to meeting him at a future Classic Dirt.

Mighty fine offer you have made me mate, Thank you.

At the moment looks like i wont make it. I am pulling out all stops to try and get down their. A few unexpected things have come up needing my attention on the home front.  Hopefully things will turn around in next 2 weeks allowing me to make it. If things work out well and I get my butt down their might have to link up with you on the Friday follow you out to CD5. This fat old country bloke gets lost in any town with more then 10 houses and 3 dogs.  ;D ;D ;D

The licence is a 'one event licence' Dodgee and I believe it is about $20. Well thats what I have been told anyway.

Post by: vmxken on April 03, 2008, 04:04:49 PM
Yes, that is correct DJ, a Rec Licence will be $20 for the weekend.  If you have a current MA Competition Licence then you won't need to pay that fee.

Hey DJ, just out of curiosity, how much is it to ship the crate?
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: DJRacing on April 06, 2008, 06:57:17 PM
I dont have the final figure yet Doc, but I have to do all the documention at your end and I have to pay for the shipping at the same time but so far the bill is $300nz and on top of that is what ever customs and who ever else I have to pay to get the crate. I have sent it as parts of a motorbike and it is dry (no tank) oil, airfilters and the motor is in pieces. Everything has been washed/cleaned hopefully the crate will cruise on threw customs. Failing that I will have to leave it sitting in storage until after CD5. (That will give me the shits).
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Doc on April 07, 2008, 05:20:54 PM
ah ok  ;) it's just I didn't see a handle to carry it on as excess baggage and thought maybe you had a 'logistics' company looking after it ;D I'm sure it'll breeze through, I know I'd be pretty impressed with the effort 'if' I were a customs official type personage but then I'd let any vintage bikes and bits in under the radar  ::)

TMBill is going to wear a massively big rain coat and strap the crate to his back and say he is just a really big bloke, what can the airport say, your to fat to get on here ;)  ;D Not in this PC gone crazy world  ::)

how about forum members put their handle on their front plate in texta on masking tape. this will help when the tour of the pits is done.

                                                  or

 post up their bike make/model and the plate #'s it will be wearing, and copy and paste the list to a new post before adding your name/bike to the bottom of that list.

I'm going to see if I can do up some name tags with forum handles printed on them and hand them out at sign in or at the watering hole saturday nite.  or is that just a bit too organised......?

i might even do some for the legends....make it easier for us to buttonhole them and tell them how they shoulda put it to so and so at the 1978 mr mx race at such and such and another thing.....

Hey Twisty,  I was thinking the same thing to make up name tags out of sticky labels such as below.

(http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll76/maicopunk/OzVMXlabel.jpg)

I'm happy to do one for all the regulars, or we could do half each then just do a bunch of blanks for the non-regulars to write their name in texta. As long as it's ok with Graeme is anyone interested?

It's all good with me. Twisty and I have already been discussing this one too, so we hope to get something organised. I'll leave him to fill out the detail, but we will have some name tags there all ready to go.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Gerard De Ruyter (Twistandshout) on April 11, 2008, 10:12:20 AM
well maicopunk, if you're saying you can do them like the one in your image for all the regulars, go for your life!  they look nice like that i must say, better than my quick and dirty white nameplate with handle printed on it but no nice colour ozvmx logo (be a nice touch). 

as far as i can see, the handles going are (not complete i'm sure):

tim454, snowy76, holeshotbuddy, STW996, VMXMAN, Twistandshout, Nathan S, vandy010, BETRIC, worms, oz555ktm, yzhilly, TMBill, squirtmoto, firko, Doc, paul, Wombat, dodgee, jimson, YSS, maicopunk (others free to chime in so you're on the list for the official ozvmx forum CD5 meet-and-greet).

reckon you can do the legends too?  be good to be able to identify them too....

yeah, so let me know if you can do (including plakky holders w safety pin?).  if not, i'll resort to quick and dirty (but have access to that plakky shit).

Yeah, no worries. I'll do all the names that I know are coming based on this thread and other conversations I've had with people. Then the rest will just have the OzVMX logo and people can write their names in texta.

Apart from the names above if you want one put a post in here or drop me a PM and I'll make sure your name gets done.

Count me in too twisty.  Can't add my name to the list as I won't have any bikes with me this year :-[
Name tags are a top idea.  Maybe hand them out early in the night while people can still read  ;D ;D
Really looking forward to catching up with a heap of blokes I have met on here.
Have you considered handing the name tags out on Friday so have more time to talk bullshit ? (and share a beer)

Pays to be organised

Edit - Twisty, I am happy to help out with the tags or the handing out or whatever.  Let me know if I can be of help.  I think getting everyone together at some stage would be great.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE CD5

We have been hearing on the grapevine that some people may be planning to arrive at CD 5 prior to Friday morning at 8am, i.e. Thursday or Thursday night.

Please be advised that only pre-authorised organisers and sponsors will be allowed entry to MX Central, the CD5 venue prior to 8am Friday, the 25th of April.

All others will unfortunately have to be turned away.

If your timing for travel has you arriving earlier than Friday at 8am, please make sure you have made some sort of alternative overnight camping / accomodation requirements, as the CD5 venue will not be available.

Thanks,

Alistair Johnson

Sorry, but CD was really only ever supposed to be 2 days, but has grown to 2 1/2.  ::) 

We have limitations on some of the hired gear (not the least being the venue), so it can't be an open ended deal.

I'd suggest that an overnight stay in a reasonably close caravan park would be the go if you want to get there early on Friday. ;)

How long does it take to drive from Brisbane to Raymond Terrace? Will anyone have a couple of tools there? I can feel a bit of tweaking will be needed. Counting down the days now, just one more days work(Monday) and then the journey begins. 2.5hrs drive to TM Bills where we will spend the night, 3hrs to MotoxRox's and the airport. A 2hr wait at the airport(check in) and then its a 3.5hr flight to Brisbane arriving at 6:35pm Tuesday. The big day will be Wednesday having to deal with customs to get my bike and gear, I hope it goes smoothly.
 We pick up a campervan on Wednesday as well and then Thursday is the big drive down. Looking forward to relaxing weekend of the same old bikes, same old dirt and same old fun.

ps  Karen wants to know if there are snakes and spiders in the toilets.

Vandy you and me both are giving Karen the shits with snakes and spiders, by the time she gets back to NZ she will be really busting to go.. ;) I will give you a call Wednesday morning. How far is Creek St(customs) from the airport? I have got one of those in-car navigation things to help us get around but I'm sure we will still get lost  ;D The only worry I have is getting the bike out of customs in one day, otherwise I will have to wait around until they release it and then drive down, if that happens we could be on the road at the same time.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Wombat on April 19, 2008, 02:39:56 PM
DJ, I also thought Customs was a one day deal but it's not.
This will be a tad wordy but it's my recent experience with importing a motorcycle to Brisbane:

Creek St is right in the guts of the Brisbane CBD; from Airport to City it's maybe a 15 minute drive in perfect traffic conditions.
I'd allow 45 mins to be sure. There are a few public parking areas nearby - all multi level parking so consider the height of your vehicle.

I had all my paperwork and the Customs Staff were helpful, but I needed their help in filling out some of the detail.
If you've previously imported you'll be OK but for a first time experience it can be a bit of a mind f*ck...
I completed the paperwork and handed it over - the nice lady said "we'll call you when we need you to come back in".
She said I might receive a call that day or it might be a few days, dependant on the back log.
My stuff was put on a pile of other import applications and I went away.

That afternoon I received an e-mail posing a few more questions about my import; I replied and heard nothing further that day.
The next morning I received a phone call to say all was sorted so come on in and pick up your stuff.
During one of these two visits I was allowed to phone the holding depot to arrange a Customs inspection of the bike.
I think it was the next day...
You're given a 15 minute time slot for the inspection - and don't be late or they will cancel and you'll need to re-book. 

Your bike will likely be at Fishermans Island, a HUGE place with shipping containers as far as the eye can see.
Check it out in the Referdex (street directory) before you head there as it took me a lot longer to find the depot than I expected.
I'ts a very large area and I lobbed up without a minute to spare.

My first visit to Customs was on Monday morning and I had the bike on Wednesday arvo.
I hope you get through quicker than that but I'm told this is the standard experience.

Yeah Oldfart the bike has been flown over and is sitting there as we speak. The company I used is Express Logistics and I believe the crate will be at Brisbane international airfrieght depot at the airport.
Is there a customs office at the airport that can deal with an "Import Declaration" and AQIS inspection?  I'm starting to pannnnnicccckkkk...  Should I get the services of a "Customs Broker Agent" or do you think I will be able to deal with customs myself ??  I have been reading up on everything I have to do but it is bloody confusing. The crate was sent as "motorcycle parts and personal effects",(bike parts, because not all of it is in the crate and what is in there is in pieces) at a value of $1600nz.
Has anyone had to fill out a 'Customs Import Declaration (N10)' and understood it ?? I just hope the person I have to deal with gives me a break and I can get my crate out in one day.

Post by: YSS on April 19, 2008, 05:53:52 PM
Dj , what you should have done is,( I assume you are taking the bike back ) go to the chaimber of commerce and apply for a carnet ATA or Carnet de passage. Then you only need Quarantaine and a stamp from customs . Job done . When you go back just stamp it off by Aussie customs again , in New Zealand stamp it off on Arrival and return the carnet to the chaimber of commerce. Thats what we do between Europe , Australia and Asia . So I think the same should apply with NZ. I think a custom broker or custom officer that is sympatatic with VMX  is now needed urgently to avoid any stress. Good luck

Walter the bike is going to stay in Brisbane for a couple of years so I can come over and race and do a couple more CD's, so the Carnet was out of the equation. I surpose what will be will be, I will just keep my fingers crossed, and if it takes two days to get the bike then thats what it takes.  I didnt build the bike up to leave it sitting in customs so I might have a late nights drive to CD5.

     They have customs clearance at Airport Drive and your crate should be UP or Down the road 4klm depending on which shed they have put it in  :)
From my personal experence it should take you about half a day ( 4 hours ) of half that is waiting time ::) ::) ::) and yes they hold thier hand out for money also  :o
Report to customs do paper work ( fill out all the bullshit that is required )- they give you an ok form -take it to bond store , they give you the item to take back to customs- customs check item over - if all is as per documents your on ya way :)

SEND THEM AN EMAIL and ask if it can be done at Airport Drive

The Tarantula's can be a problem at times as they often take out birds & possums but the Redbacks take out the Tarantula's. We lost a few lambs last year in the Redback's breeding season, but come summer the Tiger snakes take out the redbacks.

Here's some previews of a couple of new bikes for the Kevlar Kompound at CD5. The bottom bike is Jonseys new pit bike, a full stage 3 Yoshimura SL125 powered Rickman Micro Metisse. The little purple bike has been built to try and take out the inaugural Klub Kevlar Bling Award (A bottle of Scotch) but I reckon he'll be up against it with my own shiny entry, the Hindall Ducati shown while being assembled in the luxurious Kevlar workshop. The cutie on Jonseys bike is his sweetie pie daughter Elsie.

Tony....That's just the reaction that Alan wanted. He owns a shitload of purist Brit motocrossers like  Black Betty, Cheney Matchless, BSA B50, '74 CCM and more that are all restored as per the anal retentives handbook. With the little Metisse his plan was to stick it to the boring, by the book restorers that arc up every time something is built outside of their circle, kind of like what I did back in the early 90s with my fluro pink Maico. In other words, he's having a bit of fun. I'm no fan of candy apple purple as a colour but believe it or not it looks great in the flesh. I didn't like it at first either but after a few beers it grew on me. Colour aside, the bike is a nice piece of engineering. Here it is without Elsie.

OK forum members, keep an eye out for people wearing these stickers. I've done the top 200 posters and, as you might guess, this is a picture of the top 10. Also did another 100 with just the OzVMX and no name, so if you're one of the 150 odd members who have never posted you can just write your name on the sticker. These won't be very waterproof so I'll throw in a roll of clear packing tape to stick over them to protect from the rain.

Just looking at the weather radar OldRodder, and the only rain on the east coast appears to be centred over Newcastle. And it's heavy! Forecast reckons it should clear but the track may be a bit damp huh?
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Oldrodder on April 22, 2008, 07:15:04 AM
I keep looking as well but it doesn't appear to be getting any better, here I am not at work all week an unable to go for a ride because of all the precipitation.
Even if it stops real soon I think CD5 is going to be damp, bring some gummies and a decent rain coat boys and possibly some rum to keep you warm inside.

Hey Ken,
as mush as there was a wash of water thru the tent last year it was perhaps one of the best times at a M/C meet Ive had in years - took me back to when we were kids and camped at Terry Hills brick pits.

As far as Im concerned Ken you've  put the mocka on the weekend with the weather just mentioning it so bring your gumboots.

But it is remarkable... looking at the radar and there is just one great bucket of water centred over Raymond Terrace! Just like Bulahdelah a few years back - on the day of the CRC there was no rain anywhere, except one dirty big Low right over the track. Does God not like Vintage?

When they went back to the house to get his license the cop spotted his Mustang and loving Yank cars, let him go with a warning!

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Oldrodder on April 23, 2008, 05:52:09 PM
The rain has eased a bit but still a few showers now and then, I haven't ventured up to the track and won't get there until Friday when I escort quicky over there.
Apparently it has set records with 11 days straight rain, I haven't had a chance to visit the track since it reopened but I will make sure I take my Gumboots with me.
You can plan a lot of things but you can't change the weather.
All we can do is take it in our stride and enjoy the event as best we can, I hope to see and meet lots of forum members, wet or dry.

RESIDENTS in the NSW Hunter Valley and the state's mid north remain on flood watch tonight.

The warning came as Sydney broke a 15-year rainfall record today.

Meteorologist Dick Whitaker said Sydney recorded its 11th consecutive day of rainfall, breaking a 15-year record.

"Weather records indicate the last time Sydney experienced more than 10 days of consecutive rainfall was in 1993,'' Mr Whitaker said.

"Even more impressively, it's been 77 years since we've experienced 11 consecutive rainy days in April.''

Showers are forecast for Sydney tomorrow but they are expected to ease on Anzac Day.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said between 140mm and 150mm of rain was expected to fall in the Lower Hunter, The Great Lakes region and the Manning River catchment from 4am (AEST) tomorrow.

"We are expecting the rain over the next 30 hours,'' a bureau spokesman said.

How many days of straight rain? Hasn't rained a drop here for weeks, and we're not that far away...

The YZ-X lives!  :D :) x100. Been several late nights, and there are still a few rough edges (esp the tank that gets a coat of paint each night, after it gets cold. And then managed to stick my beanie into the wet paint the other night...). But it runs!

Forecast for Sunday
Fine apart from isolated showers developing later in the south. Northwest winds.


Newcastle:   Fine.                           Min:   13  Max:   26



http://mirror.bom.gov.au/products/IDR043.loop.shtml as you can see from the radar, is a wee bit damp.

So we may not have rain on the day, but it will be slushy :D the MG car club which owns the property next door canned a dirt event last weekend due to the bog, but then again cars running around will do a hell of a lot more damage than a bike.

Fingers crossed!!!

Fantastic to see some of the legends yesterday.  The 465 mount of Gally was also not a bad look.....  Un fortunate about Joel.  He spoke with us afterwards and was in good spirits.  I have a bunch of photos that I will post to later, including closeups while JR was still on the bike.

Hey,  There is a another legends ride this arvo, so maybe this thread will require some more hard disk space!!

Fantastic event.  Not a lot of bikes for sale,  but good parts.  I sold some old forks and exhaust,  which paid for petrol,  ride fee and incidentals.  Will report more later.  The tributes will undoubtable roll in over the next 2 nights from all.  Very well organised.  Early ups to VMX-MAG.

One of the best late editions,  was the VMX Name Badges,  sugested by some legend.  Great to see some of the people who we sometimes only contact or see online through this forum.,

Hi andrew,  I don't want to start a massacre here with the other attendees,  because this is essentially a great ocassion for us to just witness a point in history,  but in support,  you probably are correct.  My memory is terminally bad,  at the best of times,  so please correct me.  At least 2 riders had passed Joel Robert befoe the crash?  I think it would have been more respectful and better for the media if no passing in the first lap and Joel was able to complete at the front of the pack for all the fotos etc. 

No need to reply Andrew.  I really, really enjoyed yesterday,  and to see all these people,  legends and bikes from all over.

Where I come from, Gaston Rahier was the 70's star,  brought out by Suzi NZ,  and people came from miles away, at the time. 
Another small guy, 
another Belgiun. 
All money is not going to secure this one for CD6.

Is there anyone at CD5 that is online????????

Yeah that was me Andrew,  I reckon it was just one of those things, Joel was going slow and was huggin the front brake, Per really didnt have nowhere to go because he had bikes either side of him, just glad neither of them got hurt, sure theyve seen and been in worse situations, give Joel & Per something to talk about at CD6 ::) Besides, Per was riding a MAICO so it could not have been his fault :-X

Post by: Graeme M on April 28, 2008, 07:16:06 AM
Must agree with all that's been said so far. Superb weekend. A huge thanks to the VMX boys for the brilliant job they did getting it all on track and keeping it there, despite the most extraordinary weather the week before. And a big vote of appreciation to Suzuki, who did so much to support the weekend and who got half a dozen wrecked demo bikes back for it all...  ;D


We arrived Friday AM to reports of a deluge the night before and a very waterlogged venue. But the Vintage spirit was alive and well and the feel around the place was electric. We were glad we'd booked a motel though. Here I am today back home, a little sore and tired but wishing the weekend could have just kept on going.

Here's a few memories from it all.

The grey afternoon on Friday was more than matched by the big smiles and enthusiastic welcomes from old mates and new faces.

Watching the bikes streaming in and marvelling out the sheer quality of work done to them.

Waking Saturday to brilliant sunshine.

That first lap in the slush on Saturday - loved it. The little RM impressed the Hell out of me.

Utter exhaustion after the two first laps in the slush - am I really that unfit?

Marvelling at the organisation and the facilities, it's a top venue.

Meeting forum regulars and finally putting a face to the name.

Meeting Firko.

Watching riders navigate the swamp on the top of the hill. All sorts of styles and speeds but pretty much everyone got through it every lap. Great stuff.

Beautiful bikes everywhere - and every sort of bike you can think of. Even an Adler.

The sound of two strokes at a race meeting - lovely.

Meeting Walter and being impressed by the professional setup of the YSS guys. And thanks so much for helping set up the RM shocks. Its great stuff the YSS gear.

The spit roast and band on Saturday night, now that was a nice touch. And thinking "Hey, that guy singing looks like Ajay".

Doing a few easy laps on Sunday and actually watching the riders around me. Some quick, some slow, but everyone having a great time. Got carved up by a few big bore Pre 85 bikes but got to chuckle as a couple of Suzuki demo bikes bit the mud in front of me.

My only fall of the weekend - thinking I'd be smart and follow the line to the left over the jump on the start straight and discovering two big tyres right there in front of me.  A wobble and slow topple into the sand... How embarrassment.

Standing at the top of the hill in the pits Sunday just before we left. Blue skies, warm sun, the sound of bikes at work and just the spectacle of people and machines spread out before me. What a great memory...

Thanks again to everyone. Loved it.

you mean Bill!!  :o 'US' give him a hard time with sheep jokes!! Fair go! You'll have to meet the man sometime VMX and then you'll understand that there isn't anything you could say that would/could offend the man and you better be quick witted or the tables will be turned instantly :D I do believe they both had a fat time although they're probably still on the road back to Brissy as we speak. DJ is a damn nice bloke albeit a little more reserved but ya better be careful when provoking as he's been around Bill a while now remember! :D

I've just arrived back from the airport after dropping Mike Jolly off for his flight back to NZ after a hectic few days at CD5. Below, in no particular order are my thoughts and memories of the event.

* Ken, Ajay and Jeff  deserve a big round of applause. These events arent easy to organise and control  so to see the event go off so smoothly was a delight for all of us.


*What a nice bloke Joel turned out to be. His happy demeanor and interesting yarns were a delight. He's a fitting replacement for the late Jim Pomeroy as KK patron.

*If anybody was going to take Joel out, why did it have to be one of our Klub Kevlars?? Per Klitland was genuinely upset and enbarrassed after trying a move on Joel that had no hope of coming off. Luckily there was no major damage done other than a slightly damaged ego or two. It just goes to show that even legends can enter the red mist. Joel and Per were later seen laughing and reliving their moment.

*We wondered why Mums and Dads were holding their kiddies back from coming into the Kompound until we discovered the sign below that Jeff had discreetly placed next to the Kompound.

*The quality of the bikes has improved out of sight. there was bling of all sorts around every corner.
Below, some of the outstanding bling on show
(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5hon.jpg)

* Peter Rowlands new billet speedway Jawa inspired blender was a little jewell.
(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5blend.jpg)

* It was great meeting Kiwis DJ and Karen and sharing a beer with Mike Jolly and TM Bill again. I was hoping Bills lovely Italian wife Valeria could have come to officially launch my Ducati by smashing a bottle of Chianti over the footpeg or something equally inspiring. Mybe next time. DJs Noguchi project bike is as nice as I thought it'd be. It sucked a lot of people in.

(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5nog.jpg)

* After years of just missing each other I finally got to meet out webmaster, Graeme. It was also cool to put faces to names with the great nametags. My Fiko tag wouldn't stick and still lives on my DT1. I still missed out on meeting many of you and hope to have another opportunity sometime soon.

* The coolest bike award just had to go to Gus Priems unreal mid fifties Adler. Many of us have been following the progress on this bike for years and to see it in the flesh was a pleasure. This is one rare as shit motorcycle.
(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5adler.jpg)

It's a pity about the mud. It agravated my ankle injury and by Saturday night was in a bit of pain. Thankfully alcohol is a great pain leveller. Due to a confused message the Klub Kevlar Margarita blowout didn't occur when and where I'd told people it would. I apologise to all that missed out and promise it won'y happen again. The First Annual Ray Ryan Memorial Chili Cookoff  did come off and results are still in the air due to the tasting panel having three differrent winners. I reckon mine was best but have to admit that the other entries were all different and good. Kev "Krasher" Crossey and MAs Ross Martin were worthy competitors. The 4th entry "Bullmad 24" went missing and his entry wasn't judged  and Dave Tanner had to return suddenly to his very ill wife so he missed out. Next years shootout will be better supported I'm sure.

* Thanks to Mike Jolly who flew in from NZ and helped me get the Duke and Maico trials bike ready. I've had a major illness in the family that had bought progress to a halt so Mikes encouragement and help at least got the bikes into a displayable condition. Thanks Mate.
(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5duc.jpg)

* It was good to see one of the sports true characters back in the thick of things. Paul Chipendale has been nursing his very ill wife Rosie for the last few years which pushed his participation into the background. Rosie is now in remission and fighting fit so Paul and Rosie made the journey south from the Sunshine Coast. He was hovering around the beautiful for sale '77 CCM and has made an offer on it. It was great to hear that unmistakable laugh again.
(http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-8/1062154/cd5chippy.jpg)

*I thought I was a lucky little camper when I spotted a clean TS90 Honcho for $20. Sadly my dear mate Nathans wife was one step in front of me with a cleanly minted $20 bill in her hand. Bugger!

*All in all CD5 was yet another hoot. There were downsides but overall it was a credit to the organisers. Roll on CD6!

I wanna thank maicopunk for doing up those pretty neat ozvmx-logo'ed nametags - it meant i actually met lots of forum people, which was just great!  As one of the top ten forum posters doc, I was keen to meet you too Doc but it didn't quite come to pass.  Neither did the little ozvmx session I was going to do Saturday nite before dinner was served (just read out a few stats - forum numbers now, most members online at one time, top ten topics, top ten posters etc plus ask for a round of applause for Mr McElligott, the site's founder - but people's tummies got the better of them and the caterers were getting toey, so another time maybe).

Couple of nice coincidences - I bought two old T&T mags from Geoff Morris and read them on the trip back to Canberra Sunday arv.  One had a writeup of the European GP at which Joel gave an uppercut to young Gaston Rahier for taking him out of the race in what '74 or something - the very same incident I heard Joel recount live at the pre dinner story session Saturday nite! 

The second mag (T&T March '88) had a writeup of the first vintage mx gathering in Australia, held somewhere in Victoria early in '88 (and predating the Classic MX meeting held at Amaroo on April 24 of that year - a Firko job that one?).  And who was at that first (Vic) one?  Peter Drakeford for one...MC star of CD5....a mere thirty years later.....any other CD5'ers there too?

Apart from that, a big vote of thanks to Suzi Aust for the use of them perty new bikes - I didn't mind that one bit!  And to the VMX mag team - I had an absolute ball - the best three days I've had in years.  The atmosphere was like....I don't know....like Woodstock without the bare bums.  Bliss!!!

HI Guys,
All we can say is thanks for comin'. The weather on Friday had to be seen to be believed and it would have been easy to stay home - warm and dry - but luckily the average VMXer is tougher than that.

On Friday morning I shared a 'small island' at the entrance to MX Central with a couple of very soggy vmxers for a few hours while the flood waters [yes FLOOD WATERS] receeded and at that time the event looked shakey to say the least. But miracles evidently do happen and the weather cleared and we were rewarded with a great weekend.

My personal thanks to all you guys [and girls], all I saw over the weekend were happy smilin' faces. Joel was fantastic value. Thanks to everybody that attended and supported the event in difficult conditions. Thanks to all the sponsors. Thanks to Suzuki for all the extra little things that make our life much easier. Thanks to Todd and the MX Central team for all their hard work [and great food], it would have been easy to pull the plug with the bad weather, but no! Thanks to Chris Malam for all the bad jokes. Thanks to all the OzVMXers who introduced themselves over the weekend. Thanks to the Hunter Motorcycle Club guys for manning the gate and doing flag duty on the track. Etc, etc, etc!!!!!!

The only thing I could think to complain about was the parking ability of the average VMXer. Gally and I concluded that it would be easier to teach you guys to 'double jump' than it would be to get you not to park in the middle of the road [only joshin'].

We [Ken, Ajay and Chris] went out to dinner in Raymond Terrace last night and within 10 minutes the subject of CD6 came up. Bloody hell, the mud was still wet from CD5 and here we go again.

Catch you later.

and here's some more pics from this fine event.

Sorry I missed you Twistnshout, I missed a few others also and 3 days was simply not enough time to get around to everyone and everything that I'd wanted. I met so many people (hopeless with real names sorry) that my mind was frazzled. YZ250, YZHilly, KB, Quicky, TMBill, Big Bill Nolan, Rusty, Nathan, Firko, Graeme, Ajay, Jeff, Ken,oldrodder..jeez that's just a partial list and it seemed like near everyone was there. Really sorry for the guys that missed it but your turn will come I'm sure. Jimson and Tom, it was a pleasure meeting you also mate. Picked up parts, dropped off bikes, bought others home was a typical story, I along with countless others did just this and it is a brilliant opportunity for moving bikes and bits around this country for precious little in terms of cost. Parts and bikes being sold and traded left right and centre and I don't believe I saw any instance of animosity amongst the crowd. I could write and write but I'd only be repeating others so some pics instead are at the link below ;)

I am one of those unfortunate souls who didn't get to go this year but want to do the next one no matter where over East it is.  Even if the venue will be discussed millions of times over can we get a date sooner rather than later so I can organise rosters????  I might even then have to appeal to somebodys better nature to help me buy a bike over that way - just bring it back with me you see!!!!

Post by: Nathan S on April 28, 2008, 06:43:41 PM
Awesome, just awesome.
:)

I got a call from Yumastepside on Sunday morning, and I really tried to tell him that he wasn't missing anything good, but there was no way I was convincing.

CD5 was great for a heap of reasons. Here's some of them:

1. The people you meet. Meeting a bunch of great people for the first time. Had several great discussions with guys like Walter and Boagy and KB and DJ - after five minutes you feel like you've been mates for years.

2. The bikes. The VE Hagon, the Victor powered Bantam (Quick!), the CCM, Can-Ams that don't belong to Nitram, Betric's collection, the Rickman SL (yes the colour is awful, but it's a mighty nice thing), DJ's Noguchi, the collection of leading link bikes, 090's collection, msmola's crappy old TS185, and everything in between, it was hard not to be impressed.

3. The people you re-meet. Meeting up with a bunch of different blokes you already know but haven't seen since the last CD or the last Nationals - The Qld Suzuki crew, Brad, Quickie, the Tassie boys, crossedup2, etc etc.

4. The riding. Getting to ride and enjoy the old bikes among a heap of other people doing the same. At one stage I had a KX500 and a CR500 blow past me and then a few seconds later, I blew past a certain TS185. No agro, no argy-bargy, just people enjoying their riding and their bikes.

5. The buying. While there were some optimistic souls it seemed that, on the whole, people there to sell. Along with the $20 TS90, I also got a few other bargains - $10 DT360 motor, $15 pair of guards, etc. There was a lot more I could have bought, but we ran out of space well before I ran out of money or enthusiasm.

6. The riding. Getting a ride on bikes that you wouldn't usually have the opportunity to. I am - and will remain - eternally grateful to 090, Betric, DJ, Vandy, msmola, for allowing me to take their toys for a blat. Plenty of others offered (or at least said 'yes' when I asked) but time just seemed to get in the way.

Ah... I'm babbling.
Anyhow, thanks heaps to everyone who made it happen.

A+++, will attend again, highly recommended event.  :D

Well i just locked the shed after packing everything away . I have just had the best  weekend away . Awesome i have never seen or met so many like minded people . Everyone i met was enthusiastic about all the different bikes and having a laugh . I worked hard on the track and was still slow but it was great fun and then worked equally hard off the track , Saturday night was a standout with Joel telling some of his story's (Everyone was rivetted to him struggling with his accent but getting the drift of what he was saying ) The story of Rahier putting him into the crowd and how he got back on the track was incredible and watching him crankin the suzy up on the paddock on sunday was a highlight . I met a heap of forum regulars and there is a lot i missed so next time i will try harder . A big thanks to everyone involved with running the event ,It went off without a hitch and a hardy bunch of VMXers supported them . I had a couple of VMX virgins with me who just couldnt believe how big it is and are chasing bikes and plan on being part of it too. I big thanks to Nathan & Anna for giving me and KB171 a bunk on thursday on the way up .

Some names too the faces , Nathan and Anna hiding behind the Golden Rat ,Micheal on the bike and Lozza with the old chain . This dramatically improved micheals riding as on saturday he fell off every corner and sunday he made a full lap with only 2 getoffs . I worked hard on the track not to fall off as it looked nasty down there only too be taken out by Kurt (facthunt) at our campsite with his infectious laughter the ensuing cartwheel also knocked over both of KB's honda's (sorry KB) lucky there was no damage to the bikes and i was sufficently aniethetised that i didnt feel .But everyone who witnessed it pissed themselves .

Ah, The Golden Rat. :D

Poor old msmola2002 (white shirt) and his $500 TS185 copped a lot of shit over the weekend, and he took it with the good humour that was intended.
CD5 was his first ever ride on dirt, and given his perma-grin, I doubt that it was his last.

After his 500th chain derailment, Lozza convinced him to buy a new chain. One of the stalls down the hill sold him a fairly decent chain that happened to be gold in colour.... So he had this filthy dirty, ill-handling, poorly running TS185 with a bling gold chain: just like a rat with a gold tooth.

Lozza and I both took the Golden Rat out for a run, and we were both horrified - no power (even on the rare occasions when it ran clean) and even less handling. On that bike on that track, Michael gave himself a hell of a learning curve.

On an unrelated note, I've gotta add in a special thanks to jimson & Tom, and to Doc and Oldfart for carting shit around the countryside for me.

 What A Gorgous  185  ;D




 A lot of V nice machines and  looks like it was a blast guys. I cant see too many  PNG mudmen running around so Im guessing  a lot of bench racing took place.

Pity about the few  losses i read about but good to see it hasnt dampened the spirit of the weekend .

Ah yes the Golden Rat ;D well worth of a separate thread!
What a fun weekend, was nice to meet some friends from here and say g'day, next year I'll see if I can camp for some real action.
Highlights were many, managing to start Walter's sidecar in front of a large audience, the look on Joel's face when I commented how many more World titles he could have won on the Golden Rat..."on dat ting" ??? Many many laughs at TMBills one liners, oggling DJ's sweet Noguchi which photo's don't do justice. I could go on and on......
Many thanks and backslapping must go to the VMX crew for their long hours of planning and to the much maligned Holeshot Buddy for not planting his KX 500 wheel in my back*.

Oh, the one-liners...

Bill: "He's so dry he could suck up the Pacific."

Bill again: "He's a good c%^t. [pause] Well, I got it half right."

Michael (of The Golden Rat): "So, he's a puzzle wrapped in an enigma?"
Lozza: "More like a puzzle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a f$%k-wit".

(all about different blokes, I should add. I don't think any of them had any malice behind them).

Anna: "Lozza's been telling Michael all of these riding tips, but he doesn't follow a single one of them himself".

Magoo had a good one about the ugliest bike ever, but it escapes me right now.

Can only repeat what everyone else has said, great venue, it sucked up the water pretty good, lots of cool bikes, lots of great blokes & not enough time to get around to see everything properly.

If you didn't make the effort to get their then you missed out on the best meeting since CD4

Fantastic effort by everyone involved. I was really feeling for the VMX crew as the rain just FLOODED down for days on end thinking they might have to cancel, but the VMX god smiled, the flooding drained away JUST in the final nick of time, the campground and track still worked and weren't knocked around too bad, much to the credit of Pete Starkey (Stack) - the track caretaker.
I had people telling me today they saw some TV footage on the NBN 3 Newcastle Sunday news, but damn it I was unloading bikes and gear and forgot to look when it was on, supposedly showed some action, jumps, and bikes - what else, any Joel Robert interview, who saw it?

Just got back from the long drive . What a great weekend . Meet so many forum members and can now put a face to it . I did not know the forum was hiding well international proven sidecar passengers.Thank you TM Bill for outing your self .I think the crowd and both of us enjoyed the little demo ride. Thanks also to the two stroke Institute (Lozza ) for starting my fourstroke. The weather turned out OK  and things run smoothly. Our Tradestand was always crowded and many customers I finally meet face to face.
The chilli cometition was as fierce as the taste ,Team YSS and the YSS girls all enjoyed it. The Kevlar girls , I must say , where a bit shy however .  ;D  Thanks Firko anyway , Top show from Kevlar club.
The track was technically and phisically very demanding on pre 74 bikes and old bodies. I can still hardly walk. I just have to get in shape again.

My sincerest congratulations to Ken, Alistair and Jeff for pulling off the best CD since Barrabool. The weather Gods were totally against you guys doing this but it came off big time. Thanks also to Todd and his crew for the huge effort they put into preparing the venue. I know for a fact that they were up against those same weather gods but hard work won in the end. Thanks also to the nameless blokes who manned gates, flags and every other official position. I don't know who you were but you did a fantastic job under tough circumstances.

I was blown away by the quality of the bikes this year. The bling factor has really come into its own. The amazing trip through motocross history in the Kevlar Kompound can't be understated. Everything from Firkos beautiful under construction Ducati to Black Betty and Ugly Betty (his little purple metisse), Jonseys Hagon VE monocoque, Edgars historic ex Gunter TRIBSA and ESO Metisse, Franks amazingly trick Manx Norton Metisse and those unreal blenders made their "Kamp" a special attraction. Gus Priems gorgeous little Adler was stuck away in the back blocks but was a masterpiece. The same goes to Rod McDonalds great Anzani DOT and Ray Doles ex works Victa which is the only Australian made bike to ever win an Australian Championship.

I also got a fatty over those brilliant Mugens and a couple of sweet YZs down on the dirt track. It was great catching up with old friends like the legendary OSSA king Phil Young, Per Klitland, Firko and his band of degenerate pensioners, Rod Mac and his Victorian degenerate pensioners wo surely must be the Mexican Klub Kevlar. I even met a bloke who has owed me money for four years who finally paid up!

The downside has to be the sad loss of Peters Husky from the motel. What a crook thing to happen. I don't know Peter but after talking to his mates I have learned that he is an extremely generous bloke who bends over backwards to help other vintage entthusiasts. If it was one of our community who did this to him I feel sick inside knowing that it could be someone I know. I hope the bike is returned soon Pete.

I'm going to have to lift my resto game up for CD6 with such a strong standard being set at CD5. Bring it on.

Thank you one and all for attending, you're the reason the event is a success more than any other single factor.  It takes a lot more than that to make it happen, as many have said, such as support from Suzuki, our other sponsors Engineered Environments and Wiltec Industries, support from the Trade stands, the track operators (Todd and his wife Kristy), the Hunter Club, the Legends who participate and loads of others, but, you guys make it a success.

I'm still too tired to type much more and will come back with some more later but for now, I'm just really glad you enjoyed being a part of it.

Regards

Ken

ken, i'd like to contact suzuki to thank them for their generosity in sponsorship and the bikes and to tell them as a result if i buy a modern mx'er, it will be a suzi as a direct result.  who do i email?

cd6.....suggest natural terrain grasstrack/farm venue would be great....so the pre-75 bikes and the riders who don't ride at any other time can get out and do their stuff.

i met a guy who said 'they should have it on my 200 acre farm at goulburn'......mmmmm......

To all the team at vmx mag.
Fantasic work, cd's are just the best thing, everyone had a blast. I have spent the last 5 or 6 hours down loading the video footage from the 3 days, have got some classic footage.
I would like to apoligise to Hoony for the drunken phone call on the Saturday night, and to anyone else who I offended with my dancing and singing, but I was in the Moment.
I will send good money for those photo's Magoo!

Must admit on thursday night as we stayed in the pavillion at the Bully show grounds and the rain flogging down all night to wake up with the main street flooded. MMMMMMMMMMMM gona be a wet one :'(
But the weeknd just got better, the atmosphere and friendliness of all there was what made the event. ;D
The track was a bit suss, I know it was hard to prepare the track during the lead-up. But I don't think the new layout has a patch on the old track!! ::)
Thanks to Shoey, Ribbo and Timmy for letting us stay at "Chateau Shoey" my colen is going to take a week of toxic clensing to clear the half of a cow I ate cooked up by the boys!!
Well done to Ken,AJ and all the crew for a fantastic weekend. The way the weekend flowed with the riding the legends and the sat night entertainment. TOP SHIT!!
And Sir Bradalot I thought you were going to have more fun with your clothes off at one stage 8)

Suzuki contact details.....

To twistandshout and any others on the forum, if you'd like to contact Suzuki to thank them for their sponsorship, providing test bikes and so on, please email Sou (she was the one organising the test rides at CD5) at this email address Sou_Fong@suzuki.com.au and she will pass on all comments to Suzuki management.  It IS worth a minute of your time to let them know they're appreciated, they really get behind the event in a big way.  Long may it continue.

Many thanks

What more can I say than what's already been said.  Totally awesome weekend and a definite inspiration to get the restos finished.  Thanks to those who organise the event - first class.
Great to meet a great bunch of mates and finally put some faces to names.  Thanks to Hilly and KB for the hospitality under the "Jayco Base station"

Further to the quotes Nathan started :
TM Bill - "That thing goes like a raped monkey" and "That wouldn't pull a baboon off your sister".  He had a million of them.
Every Forum member I met - "Next time bring your riding gear"

Haven't sorted the photos yet, but i have a few that are going to need captions.  A good one that Lozza is going to have to explain and a great shot of the golden rat.  You've got to give that kid 10 out of 10 for determination - well done Michael.
Video footage of everyone whose number I knew too - some particularly good (for me) footage of oldfart on the very sweet DRM.

Well, time for me to poke my nose in and say hello!

I'm a noobie here but I did manage to meet a hell of a lot of great people on the weekend, and I really felt welcomed. I may have been on the crappiest bike there (for a while anyways, I seemed to spend more time on my back climbing out from underneath it :D) but I certainly had a fantastic weekend.

I'm unloading the camera now so hopefully should have some pics up tomorrow or something

As much as I had a less than successful weekend on "The Golden Rat" aka the world's worst TS185, I shall be out for more soon, the rider in particular needs some work, not least in teh way of fitness, this riding a bike stuff is harder than it looks for a fat unfit bugger like me.

Anyhoo, was great to meet everybody that I did, and i appreciate the help and advice i received from everyone, especially Nathan, Anna and Lozza who put up with me for the weekend.

Michael.

That was my first CD so I have no other to compare it to, but I could bang on for hours about how much I enjoyed the weekend.
That many bikes and that many riders and the big party on Saturday night; followed by VMX DVDs - what a hoot!
I saw no aggro and I saw no idiots. It really was a weekend of likeminded people getting together for a common purpose. Sensational!

The Saturday night summed up for me what it's all about.
Following the major party I watched a few DVDs of VMX under a tarp; thanks Dennis and crew for your hospitality.
I'd just lobbed into the 'Cinema' and I was fed peanuts and a glass of red wine! What's not to like?
The whole weekend was like that; all manner of stuff being lent and borrowed and shit being talked.

Did anyone else notice how clean the site was following Saturdays party?
There was stuff all rubbish anywhere; it was all in the bins or piled up against them.
I think we all respected each other and the event as a whole.
Thanks to all for a great weekend.

Yeeeesss... That's me, I'd recognise those jeans anywhere...  If you look up a bit, you'll see that it worked cos there I am seat bouncing the big triple the next day!!

Actually, I must say once again thanks so much to Walter for helping me setup those shocks. And judging by what I saw, a lot of guys got that sort of help over the weekend. Great stuff.

And great stuff too is the YSS suspension. I now have YSS shocks and PD Valves in the forks and they are simply superb. The forks are brilliant for skinny old things with just 8" of travel, and the shocks are plush city. On the weekend I had some problems with my left hand and the forks really helped make it possible for me to ride. You couldn't do much better for the money than YSS, I reckon.

Hi guys,
I talked myself hoarse over the 3 days and there was still the 12 hour drive up and back from Melb to fill in. Dave Hammond and I still managed to fill the time with bike discussion. Blissful overload. I want to say hi to all the new guys I met and whose names I've already forgotten - but I do remember your faces and what was said. Everyone is mentioning stuff I saw and I would have liked to spend more time contemplating. Aarrgghh! It should be a week long!

more like a picture of retrospect.

How many of you walked past this little bike without giving it a second glance? This bike is the actual Victa (lawnmower company) works bike of Ray Dole sr that won the Australian 125 Motocross Championships back in 1961. It's unrestored and is still very quick for what it is. It's the only Australian made bike to ever win an Australian Championship of any kind. The little Victa deserves its place in history.

even more amazing to me is that the Victa got track time, its got any interesting history, got any more info Firko on this one (how it came to be, etc) ?


the Klub Kevlar Kompound looked huge with so many bikes in there.
Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: Doc on May 03, 2008, 09:47:38 AM
I did have a good look at what I first thought a bantam and fell in love with it Firko. Twin carbs, simple linkages, toecutter barrel and what appeared Victa ignition (I maybe wrong with the ignition) a top little bike!  ;) KB, the track does look amazingly inviting in most shots but I for one wimped out on actual riding excepting the SL100 kangarooing everywhere trying to break the clutch plates free :( incidently they are still stuck! bugger! ::)  Truth is I was having just as much of a good time wandering around flapping my gums and straining my optics. 3 days went very fast!!  ;D

Title: Re: CD-5
Post by: firko on May 03, 2008, 10:29:24 AM
The Bantams story is a great one that you'll have to wait for in a future VMX. I'm soon going to interview old Ray senior about the Victa and its history and get some more shots of it. A brief version is that Ray was the workshop foreman at Victa and he started mucking around with Victa barrels on his racing Bantams. Eventually he developed a complete Victa bike, frame and all, that was I believe lost in a bushfire. The bike at CD5 is the actual bike that won the title in 1961 and is a complete Victa engine grafted to a Beeza Bantam 3 speed trans and in a Bantam frame. I had a bit of a yarn with old Ray at the Wagga Dirt Track Nats and the story of the bikes development and Victas 'almost' going into motorcycle production should be a pretty interesting yarn.

A lot of work went into getting the Kevlar bikes to CD5. My Duke and Maico trials bike were a pile of parts a week before the event as I had some severe family illness dramas that stopped the projects dead in their tracks. That's why they were both unfinished but at least I got 'em there. Jonsey built Ugly Betty in a fortnight long frenzy as well as rebuilding Black Betty and getting the monocoque Hagon reasonably presentable. We made a concerted effort to display some of the sports more obscure bikes as a sort of magical mystery tour of the short travel days.
For what it's worth here's a list of the bikes we had on display.

Firko: 1970 Maico 350, 1973 Maico trials special, 1964 Hindall Ducati, 1968 Yamaha DT1.
Alan Jones: Black Betty (Eso Metisse), Ugly Betty (Honda 125 Metisse), 1978 Hagon Vic Eastwood replica monocoque TT500 Yamaha.
Edgar Phipps: ESO Metisse, ex Terry Gunter TRIBSA, 1964 Monark Triumph, Honda Elsinore 490 4 stroke, 1983 500 Maico.
Bernie Ellis: '81 Maico 490 Mega 2, 1982 Suzuki PE400Z.
Warren Jack: 1978 Suzuki PE250, 1974 Yamaha TY250A.
"Jake" Jacobs. Yamaha YZ250F, Yamaha YZ125f
David Tanner: 1974 Suzuki RN400, 1974 Suzuki RH250, 195? AJS 16H, 1979Kawasaki KX125.
Frank Stanborough: Manx Norton Metisse, 1960 Matchless G80 Trials bike (ex works)
Peter Rowland: 1969 mK 4 Bultaco Pursang Boat tail and Jawa and Maico themed blenders.
Garry Hodge, 1976 OSSA Desert Phantom.
Billy Forsyth: Montesa Cota.


We are already formulating next years display as we speak and you can be assured that it'll be a bigger and better.

Well I have just made it in the door of my house and I'm still buzzing from CD5. First off I would like to thank a few people who helped me, Karen and Bill.
Doc, you are everything Bill said you are, a true fair dinkum aussie legend, the pinnacle of a true VMXer who lives and breathes old dirt bikes. I was honoured to meet you.
Dodgee, Thanks so much for the gear shifter, and the look on your face every time TM Bill came near you was classical, I know how you feel, ya never know what he will say or do next. I loved that little Honda of yours too, it was a work of art and thinking outside the box, very cool.

Brad and Lynette, without your generosity I believe I would be still building my bike on the Pacific Highway somewhere, and lets face it, even with a Navman I still managed a 2 hour detour all over Brisbane, so from Myself, Karen and Bill, Thank you very much for letting us stay at your beautiful home, and for allowing me to leave my bike in your shed so I can come over to ride again with all you Aussie VMXers.

Ajay, my take on CD5 is, if I had have known it was going to be so cool Thursday night, I would have thrown myself on the footpath before you took the big step. Just keep doing what you are doing, the people who turn up are the ones who make or break an event like that, and from what I saw everyone was having fun.
Firko, your stories and recollections of times gone by were a real treat and they need to be told the only way you told them, sitting around a bbq with a few drinks and a good drop of laughter, keep passing your knowledge on big fella, it needs to be shared.
Magoo, Craig T warned us he had a twin brother but he didn’t warn us that you had one, and after seeing that picture in the other thread I understand why. Keep wearing that spider shirt and spinning your web, great to meet you.
Oldfart, only a kiwi would have a DR to round the sheep up, but you would be doing it in style on your bike.
Vandy, your work on the MX is without doubt inspirational, you have made me think I need to build another bike or at least do more work to the Noguchi so that the engine is closer to pre75 than pre78. Without all the talking and sharing of ideas this sport wouldn’t be as good as it is. I will be watching the progress (racing) of your bike with keen interest so keep me informed, thanks Mick.
Nathan and Anna, finally we got to meet, about bloody time too. What can I say that won’t upset you or provoke a biting response (na, just joking Nathan). I hope all goes well for you and Anna on the soon to be new addition to the family and I’m not talking about the bikes you bought over the weekend.
Tony, yeah you should have bought your gear, but if you’re like me just being there is what it’s all about. I’m looking forward to catching up with you at the next event, be it here or over there.
Hilly, first I would like to say I’m sorry about hearing the lost of one of your bikes, I hope you get it back. As for cd5 you looked like you were enjoying it nearly as much as me. I hope you get the YZ250J sorted soon and I know you’ll have as much fun on that as you did Saturday night listening to Ajay and the band.
Wombat, I have never laughed as much as Sunday night. I blame you and the scallops for what turned out to be one of those nights. Of course Bill didn’t help with the commentary of the video with him and Joel in it. A night to remember.
Mark Austin, what a great bloke, a true ambassador of VMX. I hope to see you racing in NZ.

To the other great guys I meet, Fatboyracing and the Tassie crew, Walter, Twisty, Lozza, Graeme and so many others that I know I have forgotten to mention, thanks for a great weekend and I wish you well and hope to see you again at CD6, unless you make it over to NZ to rip up our dirt. If I can repay your hospitality in any way I would be very happy to do so…….

See ya’s all around in the forum

DJ

A more unattractive lot I've never seen, even the shot Rusty got of me with my pants down on the other thread looks better.
I have been thinking about Classic Dirt all week and I reckon next year I'm not riding because you miss out on so much when you're on the track. What a top bunch of blokes the Kiwis were. Even though they struggled with the language and local customs over here they were great value, even Mr Michael Jolley esq was having a great time. There was something about TM Bills melon that made me feel like I'd known him for years.
I vaguely remember having a good old chat with my old sparring partner Nathan on Saturday night, a more passionate VMXer you'll never meet.
The band was great, the company was great, the beer was great, the atmosphere was great.
How to make it better? Stop the rain, otherwise brilliant

Following the theft of the Husky it was decided security may be an issue at that Motel.
We parked the convoy so as to make it as difficult as possible to get the bikes out - check Brad's steel cable and kick-arse lock!
Thanks to Brad, TM Bill, DJ and Karen for the laughs and hospitality on our last night; I'd have fallen asleep at the wheel for sure if I'd attempted the drive to Brissie straight after we left the event.

Post by: 090 on May 03, 2008, 06:40:30 PM
I feel the same way about the riding Magoo. I rode too much and missed out i feel and next year i wont spend anywhere as much time on the track. I think that cd6 should be there again next year as its central and the facilities are good. The owners are eager to please and with another 12 months under their belt the complex would be even better.

I'm trying to post a handful of CD5 photos but they're a real bugger to reduce in size.
I'm using the 'paint' program; but to post five or six photos in one go requires reducing each photo to a size too small to show any detail when opened. 
Hey DJ (or anyone else), how do you manage the large multiple photos without going over the kb limit?  
Title: Re: CD-5

Hi Wombat.  Maybe consider storing your photos on Microsoft's free server space,  then just point the posts to that picture.  http://skydrive.live.com/welcome.aspx?provision=1
Most of us OZVMX regulars host our pics on a free service.  You may even have website space as part of your ISP agreement that you are unaaware of,  this would be an ideal point to host the bike pics,  the when you post,  just point back to that photo link.  Microsoft has 5GB of space through Sky Drive,  help yourselves.

Wombat resize your pictures to no bigger than 800x800 and then add them to your photobucket album. Then generate them to go on a message board. If you have problems pm your ph and I will talk you through it.

The spotlight was deservedly on Joel but what a pair of champions are these two! Not only still supporting the sport in so many different ways but can still motor there way around a MX track showing a  clean pair of heels to all and sundry ;).

Being a Yammy man  ::) I've always taken an interest in Gally but what a champ. After this pixie he personalised it by giving me the thumbs up by way of thanks 8). ...and it was me who should have been thanking him ::).

A true champ, ambassador for Yamaha and The Sport and an unadulterated media whore ;D. Thanks champ.

It's fairly obvious to regulars that I have a soft spot for the old bikes that forged our sports early history. Here's a couple more shots of bikes that did it for me at CD5. Rod Macdonalds beautiful Anzani powered DOT and Greeves aren't bikes that I'd particularly like to actually race but they sure are cool examples of our sports pioneer bikes.

well i'm back down at the library again and i'm still reading my way through all this thread.
farkin computers!
thanks DJ for your kind words, it was real good to meet up with you 2 kiwi's.
thanks Wombat for the pic of me and Gally,  i was telling him i have a back wheel for his YZ250A and he was telling me how to go round a corner real quick. i need the help.
and Hilly, the un-named bloke in the back of the back of the pick on page 39 is my mate Al.
and for Firko, i wanted to catch up just to say g'day but got sidetracked as usuall but had a good chat with your mate Allan. funny one for ya, i was right behind him when he took that little yoshi powered purple thing out onto the track, he hit the first jump then promptly buried it in the mud. i asked him the next day what happened and the story i got was a little different to what i saw. i think he was telling a fibb. nice bike though.
speaking of getting sidetracked, we stayed off site just a couple of klms up the road and each day we drove out there was always someone to talk to that slowed our exit somewhat. my mate reckoned it was like going shopping with his mum, always talkin.
can't wait to get my friggin comp back online.

Vandy...Jonsey has told us six different stories about how he crashed with each explanation involving more air time and more speed and a different superstar taking him out. I saw him plop into the mud at about 6mph and only wish I had my camera pointing at him when he did it!. What a boo boo for a current Australian Champion.
Shit he had a good time though. I don't reckon there is any more enthusiastic a vintage punter than Alan Jones. There should be more like him.

talking about ambos, anyone know how the bloke who was carted away from the track late saturday (or was i early sunday?) ended up?  he crashed up on the top muddy section.

i remember that one as i was down at the entrance to the track waiting patiently to take one of them lovely little new rm125s out.  the funny bit about this was, i was waiting there with three other patient guys aboard the new suzis, and a heap of guys on their own bikes behind us.  waiting, waiting.  and you know how guys get when they're waiting for their (free) blast round a track....  when they finally stretchered the guy away and gave us the all clear, well, we just prodded and wfo'd didn't we.  the guy next to me was on the 450, and he of course wfo'd faster than me.  and over that first jump in like third.  on the right hand side.  meaning his wheels stuck fast in that shit mud on landing.  so i watched him sail over the front end and head first into the crap.  and then the bike follow over him.  into the mud.  (no way i was gonna stop tho, not with the thousand following on my heels).

i bumped into the guy the next day.  he said he had tyre mark brusing all up his back and his shoulder felt up the shit.  didn't get his name.  wonder if he's ok too???

Back in NZ after an extended CD5 trip and what a trip  :D

Would have to say CD5 was one of the most social VMX events iv'e been to and also got a shit load of riding in to  8)

I would like to thank everyone who made our trip so easy and so much fun  :)

Jeff , AJ & Ken what an event, apparantly there was some rain pre event but i cant say i noticed  ???
Raymond terrace was i believe an ideal venue while not as open as Broadford or Barrabol it has a lot of character and the track lends itself well to VMX bikes.
Meeting Joel was definetly a highlight , the guy is so genuine and unassuming and had some great stories to share.
The Saturday night party was awsome  8) AJ i hope your band will be at CD6 as it took the event to a new level :)

DJ & karen thanks for making this trip all the more memorable, Dj i take my hat off to yer  8) you had an idea with the Nogouchi and saw it through all the way to CD5 RESPECT, Karen without you i think DJ and me would still be being interviewed at Brisbane airport, thanks for your tollerence and sense of humour. DJ seriously owes you a Melbourne shopping trip next :-X

Doc & Dodgee :) again you guys really went out of your way to help us Kiwis i cant thankyou guys enough for all you done for us this trip and on my previous visits . I hope that one day you will come and experience VMX kiwi style and that i am able to return some of the awsome hospitality you guys have shown me  :)

Brad  8) you and your family opened your home to us, and then subjected yourself to a 20 Hr round trip in your truck with me (more than any human being should be asked to do  ;D ) Seriously though thanks mate for all your help. The trip to the museum topped off a great classic dirt ,  however i do believe your collection rivals the dirt section of the museum.
There is a bike here for you to ride whenever you can make it :)

Firko a great effort by you and the Kevlar team thanks for the BBQ and beers , still cant believe you didn't know about Jonseys Hagon pre event :-X Let me know when Mike is taking you to the Mermaid bar so i can get a leave pass  ;D
Vale promises to christan the Hindal Ducati for you upon completion ;)

Magoo i had heard the stories and the myth became the man , loved that shirt mate  ;)

Nathan , Lozza, Noel, Stu and Walter thanks for the rides, Noels CR and Nathans YZs were cool , Oldfarts DRM very nice, Walters outfit Exhillerating and lozzas Beast just plain scared the shit out of me  ;)     Again bikes here for you guys if your keen  :) (Walter would probably need a bit of notice to source an outfit  ;D )

Tony and Wombat great to meet you guys , I didn't know Scallops were on a Wombats Diet  :D Tony sorry i didn't get to call in , it was very late when i came through Inisfall hope to catch up at connondale.

It was great to meet so many of you and to put faces to names , hoping to get to Connondale and catch up with some of you there.

Already counting down the days to CD6  :)

Remember always a Bike a bed and a van for any of you wanting to try VMX kiwi style just PM me cheers Bill.

I would be interested also. I helped push his bike away. It had locked up wheels front and rear. I think the front locked and bought him down (I didn't see the get off) because the brake fluid didn't bleed back and pressure built up. The rear was locked because of the chain derailed, probably caused by the accident.

I bumped into this little reminder whilst trolling VMX web sites.
It isn't from CD5 but it could have been.
I thought of our recent CD the moment I saw it! In fact, since the event I think of CD5 whenever I see mud...
I think it's from the USA, but mud looks like mud regardless of the location - and it looks coolest when basting a VMX machine! 8)

Yes, CD5 wasn't wet or muddy at all in comparison to some.  Have a look a this shot from last weekend's AHRMA National at Tomahawk.

Hey nice work DJ i'm just watching Tony's video of CD5   and my missus and kids wanted  to know why everyone was going so slow i told them the track was rough and slippery so i showed them your video of the track and they just laughed and said i'm getting old & slow  i told them it wasnt a race and i was just having fun just a bit slower than i used to be .Hah . Just watching Joel go around on the sunday and suzuki sounds awesome and he looks like he's having a ball . Thanks Tony Barsby(YZ250H) for the DVD .

Nice clips DJ; those helmet cams are a great idea.
I think I read somewhere they're only a couple of hundred dollars?
Who knows about these things? Any advice on good ones/bad ones?

And on a personal note I'm positive that's my fat arse parked on the corner at 2.01 in this clip.
I was suckin' in the big ones after a fall and I remember TM Bill coming down the hill towards me (and you I think).
I watched him get hung up/stumble/fall at that point and this is what appears to happen on your footage.

Good stuff. Really enjoyed those.  Track time was one part of CD-5 I was unable to join in with. Really good to see how it was from riders point of view.

The helmet cams cost $us85 and you have to get a SD card and batteries. I use a 2gig SD card and 2 rechargeable AA batteries. On you tube they dont look thatr good but on a computer screen or tv they arent to bad.

C'mon DJ, the camera that makes you look good hasn't been invented yet. Great to have caught up with you and Bill at CD5 and a few of the boys are making noises about coming over and playing in the mud with you blokes. If not this year, next year for siure.

I'd love a copy DJ since I couldn't make it.

I'll be glad to make a donation to the NOGUCHI racing fund in an amount of your choice.

Will we be seeing you at Conondale? Might have to put you on a bigger Yamaha for a while, You'll feel right at home after all it's much the same colour scheme as yours  ;D

Got mine thanks DJ - you are a legend.  Far superior quality to my dismal effort  :-[  If you add all of my riding footage to your general interest and riding footage we would be able to sell it.  Karen's camera work is much better than mine.  I'll have to feed her a few Jack Daniels at CD6 so she gets my shaky hands  ;D ;D

Edit - previous version sounded obnoxious. - sorry :-[

I just hope everyones copies work ok as the one I gave TM Bill didnt. Let me know and I will try to burn a couple off and bring them to Conondale. I will try to get dvd footage of Conondale while Im there and then of the meeting I am involved with running here in NZ "Masters of Motocross". If the DVD footage looks ok I burn a few copies of that.

Brent it will be good ta see ya again ;D and thanks for the offer. I would say Geraldo would be busy with his new job and promoting the products he is selling now and Darryl has just started up a MX team so that will have him pulling his hair out(will at least keeping his spare time occupied). Bill and myself have had a bit of a chat about it and we thought maybe a camper van and a decent sized trailer(never know what we'll bring or for that matter take home with us ;D). Of course you and all the other ex kiwis over there will probably be stirring up the Trans-Tasman rivally before we get there and then probably drop it all in our laps ;D. Luckly TMB is fast talking and I will be able to make a quick getaway before the boomarangs start flyin our way ;D. Hopefully me and Bill can bring some lovely kiwi mud with us ;) for all the ockers to slip 'n slide in ;D.
Hey Ajay, when does issue 32 go off to the printers ??? Wouldnt you have to already know the wheres and whens will before that ;) ;D. just kidding, so long as we get our magazines before the Tassie guys again its all good ;D

Well that wish came true  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
