Don't worry about the straights, plenty of punters were getting the rust off the teeth of their top gears ! And to compound matters, the kindly farmer whose joint we went to trash jumped on Uncle Ken's Cheney Gold Star and galloped it hard in pre-'65, while his young bloke leapt aboard and went out and carved the boys up in B Grade ! Sensational. A quick, undulating, 1.9km lap, a foggy morning clearing to a cloudless but cool sunny afternoon, canteen run by the locals featuring magic lamb and gravy rolls, a Pony Express event with a shotgun start, tight competition and a few beers afterwards, genuine fun club day out. Huge thanks to Steve Povee who did the groundwork, and to the track inspectors who couldn't be there....betcha they don't miss the next one.... ;)
Nostalgia's not what it used to be....

Alison, if you tilt that top photo to 50 degrees and put a fold down the l/h side you have a good shot of the nats track. Oh.. and add a couple of trees.

Nothing like the sound of a Norton !!  8)

With a knee,shoulder op, a cracked primary case and the pre85 solo bikes getting the extra attention~Its been two years since the Norton/Wasp 850 has done some skids.
Another PC arrived in from UK and a extra protection piece put in place on the chain guide.She's now ready to go tomorrow for the natural terrain paddocks over at Boddington/Quindaning. Yep photos will follow  :P

why is that you got empty chairs ?


Had a new pilot today along with others new to the sport. Eight sidecars. What a roar   :P
Technique needed on a new track with more than the usual amount of corners/off camber and some dust.It was a nice test for anyone either sidecar or solo. Thanks to the local fire truck for keeping the dust particles at bay for the afternoon. Much appreciated.
56 riders/passengers rolled up to another beautiful farm scenery, better than NZ  ;)  ;D
Magic Day with four rounds squeezed in before the rain hit at 3pm.The "all in" won by a rider from Waroona.

Yes, may have a spare, but trying to make it a special event and if someone wants to come over we will find them a drive/swing.
Looks like you had a great day...well done.
