the way i see it , the modern guys don't know what a flowing track is, a whole generation of riders have come through riding quasi supercross style tracks with orbit jumps that have faces like a brick wall ( read steep), to them this is the norm now and what we like would be boring to them.

since we are in effect a minority group in the MX scheme of things it is unlikely any club would build tracks that would not cater for a majority now.

couldnt agree more in relation to the current track. If i had my way ( which aint gunna happen most likely...) the track would be put back to circa 1992, flowing, fast and rough.

That's the legendary Yamaico Dave. It's still around and it's owner's a part of this forum. The pink Maico's long gone, it's now a fully restored lounge lizard living in retirement in the Blue Mountains, Marsh's Harley was sold a couple of years ago and I was told it's now on the street, #94 XL 250 partially shown behind the Harley is Steve Greentrees XL250 that won the 4 stroke class and is now owned by Edgar Phipps, #68 KX125 is still owned by Len Tickner but no longer raced, the matching pair of YZ250/360A's and DT1 were owned by Col Brightwell I think he sold the DT1 and 360 but still owns the 250 (he had a 125 as well to make up the full set) and I'm certain Boagy still wears that Australia Jersey he's wearing in the bottom photo. ;)
Great photos from a great meeting. Any more out there?
