You were obviously going the wrong way.
I check in on this thread every so often. Two years ago, I organized my own gymkhana event at my Church parking lot.
I think I need to do it again. Thanks for the inspiring pics.
This happened in the Netherlands last week: the European Championship of Moto Gymkhana. With riders from the UK, Belgium, Poland, Czechia, Russia, France, the Netherlands. It was great fun.
First half minute only is Dutch spoken.
Thanks for posting that, I noticed the Japanese star rider Hunter Tabibito did a demonstration ride on a borrowed bike, looks like we've all got to keep practicing :eek1

There has been some interest in Qld on the Gold Coast
This is my fb page.
So far we have held meets sponsored by a local rider trainer org which takes care of insurances concerns though there is the kernel of idea to move toward a club eventually. Baby steps as yet
We have great fun and it's very informal as yet.
I looked for you on fb but couldn't find it ... a link maybe?
Hunter went incredibly fast given the fact he didn't know the bike and he had had one day to get used to it. His own bike is very different, especially in the pickup at low revs. Still, he came in fourth. And we all had a lot of fun.
These are the results:
it's this Saturday, is free, and it's awesome !
That does look fun.
The above video looks like he's just flying around randomly. Is there a map of how he was supposed to navigate the cones??
depending on the rules, some give you a map, others only one walk through.
we focus on fun and run the same courses multiple times throughout the day.
also, yellow cone, blue cone, etc mean left right circle.
Yes, usually a map. Japanese hardcore compeitions give you a map only 30-40 minutes right before the event, so you have to walk the course and memorize it in that time.
And yes, rules are pretty simple. Blue cone means go left around it, red cone means go right around it, and there are different variation on yellows as well as stripes on the cones, could mean out of bounds, could mean a full rotation around the cone, etc. Here in USA it kinda depends on who is setting up the course.
I had a blast at the Bamarides Gymkhana on Saturday.
I brought my smallest bike and felt like I was cheating
I was also at the BamaRides event on Saturday. I had a great time on my Bonneville. Can't wait to do it again!
Ooooh, look at your tires! You must like going places you shouldn't.
Bump, just to let those who are interested know that we are alive and well.
NY club is going strong with Julius now hosting our practice sessions and being in charge of things.
I have moved down to Florida just a few months ago, and unfortunately was not able to bring my bike with me. I'm in Miami area. I'm starting to get a bit of a withdrawal, but with my wife birthing our first child, motorcycle and Gymkhana are not on the list of priorities at the moment. Hopefully I'll figure something out for 2016.
California guys are doing a super job with their local sessions as well as hosting the international remote championship.
Our page and Facebook group are also going strong, and if you want to participate, here are the links.
Here is the Queensland groups start-up ..
Some cones + empty lot = good times.
This Thursday evening we will have a small meet in Birmingham, AL.
We don't need no jimmyconnor we's have the tail & the back of the dragon!
Damn I wish y'all were closer............"Bimmingham" is quite a hump from here.........
Bring out the cones....winter thaw is coming...time to sharpen the edge again
