I like therm as well, in the top few current road bikes I'd buy.

Request for photos.
My farm near Oberon NSW was once the site of Avonlea Motocross Track.
Evidently popular in its day, mid 80s to late 90s??
Effectively shut down by noise complaints and unhelpful local council, so I am told.
As a keen rider I'd like to keep the motorcycling heritage alive. Have used the place for BMW safari training day and UNSWMCC reunion.
Would be very keen to see some photos from 'back in the day'. Planning to download and print them out for display.
Cheers, Steve Cooper

I think "motocross track" is a bit of an exaggeration. No jumps. No whoops. No bogs. No real berms. Really just a flat track in a big paddock.
Found plenty of broken motorcycle parts over the last few years. And beer cans.
They used to be call scramble tracks or grass tracks, or natural terrain motocross, very popular in the 60s and 70s more for the old twin shock bikes with not a lot of suspension travel.
Lots of fun though, especially if you don't like heights
A few of us dragged out some old clunkers for ride an chat today. :)
