General Discussion / Australian land speed record on a dirt bike
« on: January 03, 2014, 10:51:20 AM »
Was just reading that the Australian Land Speed Record for a dirt bike was set in 1981 on a KTM 495 at 199kph and still stands today.
Did KTM have a 495 in 1981 ?

Ps Some guys are chasing it on a 700 Maico apparently.
If the story is true then the horses in 1981 must have been pretty big compared with today.

Surprised to see this bike for sale , thought the guy who bought it off me was going to do it up.
Needs plastics and brake m/cyl kits.
Was always a 2/3 kick starter and went like a stabbed rat.

General Discussion / Enduro Classics Video
« on: September 05, 2013, 08:59:02 AM »
Just bought " Enduro Classics " video from Duke out of England.
It has video of the 51/52/54 ISDE's.
Did you know that the Italians entered 12 Vespa's in the 51 ISDE and that 9 of them finished.
One of the special tests was at Monza and the Nortons were doing 100mph down the straights.
Not many helmets to be seen either.
Good fun this video.

General Discussion / Tivoli Racetrack
« on: June 03, 2013, 02:20:58 PM »
Just drove past Tivoli MX track today for the first time in 35 years and was wondering what has happened to it since the mid to late 70's.
Looks run down from outside the fence.

Have rounded up a bunch of kids to take to the Aratula QLD [ run by Rosevale Church of Christ ] trail ride.
This is the most kid friendly trail ride I have ever been to , it is well organized  and is a heap of fun .

Soooo I ask a mate who is involved when it's on.

He tells me " Didn't you hear ? Some one who owns or runs a Bike park has complained to the local council that the owner of the land is making money from this ride and now the council are checking into it !  The ride is off until the owner can come to some arrangement  with the council ."

The guy who owns the land has DONATED the use of his land PROVIDING ALL the money  goes to CHARITY and has done for the last 25 bloody years.
He has never received a cent.
All the workers are volunteers and have never been paid a cent.

I am pissed and I won't be going to any bike parks in the area again .
