24 Hour Trial - 2014



Might as well get the ball rolling on this years 24.

The Web site has been updated with new info for those considering entering.
I know of a few first timers this year & some ADV interstaters have been threatening
to enter too.

Good info on what's allowed with lights & pre-season scrutineering.

Very much from a spectator's perspective, I understand that there will be a mobile grandstand with bar and food outlets roaming the circuit this year!!

Maybe nicknamed 'Great Southern Stand'....

Hey PBee, heard anymore from the hobbit and plans to do the 24 on a Tiger??

Lisi and I are going to have another crack at finishing this event on a sidecar. Came close last year after so many little issues tried to stop us early, only to bomb out with a mousse failure on lap 3.

Just watched the videos from previous years.
All the confidence I had just left the room.

Anyway I might be in Scotland visiting family so we'll have too see what's happening closer to the time.

so err
trying to get a queensland contingent together on big fat adv bikes
i contacted a member of the err "Kicker sisters" with mixed results
as another suzuki rider said

"How the fuck does he plan on entering a reliability trial on an xr 650? I think he'll find if he checks the rules theyre not allowed to enter because theyre such a waste of marshalls time"


I didnt say it

1977 - in those days it wasn't marked like it is now, you had to try and remember the course. Most would ride it for several weekends before to learn it but I only did one lap prior and then got lost and missed a control on the night lap so I was outed.

Had a few years off then made a comeback

2010 - Flat rear (wasn't using mousses then) at the start of the 3rd lap and didn't have the energy or will to fix it.

2011 - had a big off, hurt my leg and retired (pulled a heart mussel)

2012 - Finished

2013 - My lights failed in section 3 on the 2nd lap. I doubt I would have finished anyway, it was slop fest and a lot better riders that me pulled the pin.

33 years is a fair break eh. I bet it felt good to finish in 2012.
