    I like the Leaf Rally its run by a small hardworking Motorcycle Club in the Snowy Moutains region - Ive been going for years. They are a top bunch - the leaf is their loud rally.

    Its a real mix of bikes, chookies (dirt bikes), cruisers, tourers, sportsbikes, sidecars and everyone gets along and shares a good time.

    I take the dirt road over the range via Wee Jasper - enjoying a fresh set of MT21's

    I arrive at the site early afternoon and the spots around Tummorama Hall are starting to fill.

    We are going to have a fire.

    Looks like we have a few special bikes too - Taz has a new toy for stunt bike school.

    My favorite sidecar is there

    Even Alf shows up with VoodooChild which he now has back on the road while his 640SM is taking a rest.

    The detail on this bike is amazing its a super rat. Look closely its not just cosmetics either.

    Photos don't do it justice.
    My Victorian shearer mate is there with a new hat!

    No one beat me in the slow race.

    As the light started to fade things moved up a gear.

    Nothing like a cute girl doing a burnout on a dirt bike! It wasnt a particularly great burn out but... I dunno... I liked it for some strange reason.
    [​IMG]
    Burn out comps are a mix of stupidity and excitement, they lack grace. But I just gotta watch.

    An FJ1100 with a bit of fireworks up its clacker.

    Well... Taz on his new stunt bike did good then again hes trailering it home.

    The morning dawned clear though we had a few showers overnight.

    I had a short chat with satan before he headed off on his harley.

    [​IMG]
    He was a nice bloke really.

    I asked him
    'Arent you worried about scaring small children with a balaclava like that?'

    'No' he said, 'the kids love it'.

    'It scares the parents though and they stay out of my way'

    I told him that I liked dressing up too, mainly womens clothes, that kind of thing. :lol3
