You must have read my mind. I have been thinking about this for the last couple of days. Thanks for the heads up And I must agree it was the best thing i did on a bike in the past year also. Plan on running one of the XJ's again on the road circuit and who knows, if i can get the old XT250 up to scratch i may take it as well.

Last year there was a basic scrutineering before the first session. They checked things like brake lever operation and a visual condition check for leaks etc. My bike was on full NSW rego so maybe they did more with other bikes but i can't say for sure.
I have noticed that the info on the website is a bit vague when it comes to bike entry info and criteria.
So you may be able to answer one of my questions which is if I get my old XT going and decide to take it, does it have to have some sort of rego to enter it for the enduro or MX track.? eg. full,club or Rec reg. I know that it said somewhere that your bike needs to have either of them to ride around the site but i assume that doesn't count for bikes that are entered in events. Is that correct?

I have been to the last 3 bonanzas and worked for the organizing commitee the past two, anyone coming I will say g'day on the gate Friday if that's when you're arriving! :) NO REG is required to ride on ANY of the areas over the whole weekend, what you CANNOT do on your unregistered bike is use it to get around the bitumen transport main roads around the complex. However there is transit lanes (mostly dirt) marked all through the complex on the weekend and you may use any bike to get you around if you stick to the right areas. There is a separate Vinduro loop ride being offered on the Sunday that will involve some riding outside the complex, this is the only thing you'll need rego for if you choose to participate. Otherwise it's the best, biggest, multi discipline free for all catering to pre 90 bikes in the world!!! If you're not dead get there!! :)

Cheers, Brendan

My missus is going to China.

I'm going to Broadford!! Woo Hoo!

But I haven't entered, yet.

What's the point of a thread that doesn't have snaps!

This one I got from KTJ Images.


I bought this one from KTJ Images, plus a few more.



Trokel trying to look inconspicuous.


Another one I bought. So few photos of me riding. Spiffy!



Okay, I've left that open for smart arse replies like "yeah, you're normally on the floor". Go your hardest, it's probably true.


Note that, if you enter in the road bike section, you don't need leathers. Go on, make me regret that comment too.

Good Point

This is about the only one I have of me on the track.


And here is a few I took of some of the dirt track stuff on the Sunday while my XJ had a rest due to a slipping clutch.

So if you average that out it probably is an 84' now

Bit of a working bee on the Broadford bikes today,38 in the shed! Three tyre changes worked up a fair old sweat!
First, I want to have a crack at the short circuit,PE is fine as long as I put block tyres on, too easy,if a little hot


All I have to do now is drop it about 4 '' with some short shocks and forks thru the triples, so it doesnt want to hi side all the time!

Now this little gem is my old Scrapper, slow as a wet week,but a hoot to ride, you just hold it pinned and go mental on the gearshift!
Once again,good to use on the road circuit as long as itr has road tyres

Its also getting a disc brake on the front!, but its defining quality will be the exhaust!
Custom 2 into one with monster pipes and a megaphone, shoukld sound awesome if nothing else


Cant wait!

Now booked in. I'm taking 3 bikes, the two RDs and the XS11. I don't expect to put too many laps on the big old elephant. The 350 is entered in the 'race bike' group.
Plan will be to get there early on Friday & camp close to the back fence of the road race pits, amongst the trees. If it goes the same as the last two years, there will be our group (Griffith Classic Club), some two stroke lovin' folk from Canberra close to the edge of the car park, a bloke (Russ) from Taswegia down the bottom of the hill with his MZ/Husky next to the bunch from Melbourne - I do hope that at least one of the two that had the domestic last year doesn't show up. Ce la vie.
