CD7 on 11- 13 June at Connondale Qld is a great place to view old dirt bikes. I hope to have my PE250Z rebuilt by June so I can do a few laps of the Vinduro loop that weekend.



There will be bikes like this there

Pity it's such haul to get there, would be keen to check it out,
Any chance of a ride report? [with plenty of pics!]

For the birthday celebration we had a little squirt down the ocean road

Thanks Hunter but less of the old please, feels like yesterday I wheeled it out of the shop, goes much much better now than then too.
Grandad's old hammer for anyone that cares, a few new handles, several new faces, but used daily, hurt me last week, 6 days off the road to fit bits.
I will scan some pix in odd places, travelled the world, I bought it as state of the art sportsbike, before adventure riding was different.
Had the odd adventure, it will outlive me, prise it from my cold dead fingers.
