Vintage Track / Re: Michelin X11 directional?

I think there are a few 19" trials around, like Vee Rubber which seems fairly popular, and I think Mitas? I'm told the speedway tyres aren't the best on the MX bikes as they need to be spinning to work and we tend to be on and off the gas on MX bikes which makes them a bit inconsistent.

Thanks guys, figured it didn't matter much. No obvious tread/compound differences so must be purely to do with the overlap in the plies. Just Michelin playing safe I assume.

Vintage Track / Michelin X11 directional?

The X11 Michy is a radial and directional, but does it much matter for dirt track?

Weather looks good for the weekend, I've got a leave pass for Sunday, and the IT goes. Fingers crossed I'll get there, it's over 12 months since I last had a ride in the bush!! I've been ODing on VTR videos and photos the past few days, it really is a brilliant concept. Looks like lots of people having lots of fun...

Still drop by here occasionally, but I'm loving not having to do more than that...

Thanks for your kind words Kenneth, and for stepping up to take on the role of managing OzVMX. To be honest, I think it will reinvigorate the whole thing as I have really let the bar drop over the past couple of years.

So a big welcome to the new team, and here's to a bright future for OzVMX.

General Discussion / Re: OzVMX to close

I recently posted on the ozVMX forum and issued an email to all members of the website that I would be closing all of these sites and the Facebook page. However, I have had several people/groups contact me in regard to possibly taking over from me and I am in discussions about that possibility.

As a result, all three sites will continue for now until discussions have resulted in an outcome one way or the other. At that time I will inform everybody of next steps. I do expect some changes to occur.

Thanks so much for all your kind words. I am away from home on family matters (been quite a year for that) with access via phone only and I hate typing on that!

Just to clarify, I am closing the Facebook group and the Ning site as soon as I get back home. The forum will remain active until July next year when the current server subscription expires. I will have to think about what happens then - perhaps I will keep it online but not active...

And as far as what I am up to rather than VMX, well in dirtbike terms its modern dirt track but my main passion now is trying to change the world. Got Buckleys of achieving that but I believe I have to give it a shot. The things you end up doing eh?

General Discussion / OzVMX to close
« on: September 01, 2016, 08:37:54 PM »
Dear all,

The time has at last come for me to close OzVMX. I am no longer interested in vintage dirtbikes, and the effort of managing the forum, website and Facebook page are more than I wish to continue with.

The Facebook group is utter shite - I am so regretting ever starting that. It will be closed by the end of September.

The Ning site I never look at and have no idea how it is going, but Ning has now told me that they are increasing the fees for it to well over 2 times as much as I currently pay. Given how hard it was to get support to continue OzVMX this year, it seems unlikely I can raise $1500 in future. The new pricing takes effect from 1 October, so I will close that site at that time.

I should like to close the forum at that time as well, however I have renewed the server account for one more year following the donations received a few weeks ago, so the forum will remain active until July 2017.

Thanks for all the kind comments, support and interest over the 12 years OzVMX has been going. It's been fun most of the time and I had some great times when I was an active competitor in the VMX scene.

Please note I will be out of town over the next week, so will be only looking in intermittently.

All the best to you all.

I've been keeping an eye on this thread given some of the comments. Heaven VMX started this thread to promote an event and encourage participation. Please keep that in mind and also the intent of this forum, which is about enjoying the sport. I will delete any future negative comments.

Thanks everyone, with your help I've raised the necessary to cover the bills for another year. Fantastic, that's been a great outcome. As I say so often, I really do appreciate it!!

As for the Petshop, yes that was one of mine...

Thanks again to those who have donated so far. Today I paid for my server hosting account for another year - $305 of which $290 was provided via donations. Thank you all so much.

Please if you can spare a few dollars to help keep OzVMX up and running, I still need to raise $600 for support and platform fees.
