Honda Broadford Bike Bonanza 2012

Did anyone else get to the Honda Broadford Bike Bonanza (2012)?

Absolute fantastic time!
Lots of riding.
Lots of photos.
Lots of videos.
Lots of laughs.
and
more motorcycles and motorcyclists than you could poke ten sticks at!








I went with my wife and 15y.o. son. The RD (it is the blue one in the first video - an air cooled 250) was loaded onto the trailer and we travelled with a few couples from here. Met up with several others, including a couple that came from WA, with the green frame and the square case supersports.

Only downer - if you are riding you don't get to view much else other than your own 'event'.


I only saw one ADV bike - the XTZ1200 with Ural sidecar. Can't think who owns it. It was gone before I got back with a note to say where I was camped.

If you were, and have videos or photos, stick em up, PLEASE!!!

Yes, Dave, it was. Just couldn't recall, nor could I find it by searching through. Too much stuff here.

To which I will add















this Hagon XS was apparently sold, on site, for $6k




Replica RCB1000 using a CB900 as the donor engine.

Why does a dog lick it's balls?

Some of the riding. Most of these photos were taken by my wife and son. I was busy riding.

This'd be me, on the RD, trying to close the gap to Mick, on his twin cam 750/4. Note the 'adventure' helmet. Damn thing meant I couldn't get down on the tank whilst still seeing where I wanted to go.

I got him around the long left sweeper onto the main straight.
















You don't have to be far away to feel isolated.







This bloke and I went lap after lap after lap. He'd get by me on the straights and then I'd work to get infront of him before the main straight.

Then I noticed he had a prosthetic on his left hand...


I've got quite a few photos of he & I. I'd love to know who he is so I could send them on. Anyone know him?

We didn't have much problem with the 350 Elsie, except on the straights.






There were sidecars








This'd be a Carberry Enfield.

'Indian' was the featured marque at the road race circuit.




There was the speedway, on Saturday afternoon. Photos were a bit hard to get - slow lens, low light and ham fists don't help.












Alright, it's mainly a problem with ham fists, isn't it.

Looks like it's just you & I, Dave.

Another video, from the helmet cam this time. Don't know what happened to the audi track, all the others worked ok.




I was speaking with a bloke, on Sunday morning on the dummy grid. He was riding an XS850 at that time but had had his H2 500 out on Saturday. He and I had 'done a few lines together' during one session. He reckons he was asking himself 'wtf do I have to do to get rid of this bloke?' Yes, I was having fun, proving that a TLS front / SLS rear can still work satisfactorily.

You can see a bit of what I'm on about in this video.

G'day Donks.
this isn't a write up, just a pictorial.
The write up is for the classic club. A story does a lot better when you 'know' the characters. I mean, I can put shit on Dobbo all day. For that matter, everyone can put shit on Dobbo all day. He's got broad shoulders. Either that or he can't actually read.
As for Gra' don't get me started.

And yes, do make it if you can. Fantastic fun.

it's so much fun that my missus intimated that I should get a historic type race bike. Used only on Sundays sort of thing.

And she may ride the RD next year??!!


I'd like to see pics and vids from others that were there. But maybe it was just me?

Maybe it's a demonstration to each other?
In fact, this video three brothers from here are demonstrating their riding skills to me. And I to they.
