Just competed in the inaugural Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro for pre 88 muddaboiks. full competitive timecard event with transponder special test timing. was held in Blackwood, Victoria in aus. my prep for this event was poor with a sudden job out of town and family commitments. a test ride of the LC 400 twin shock a few weeks before revealed the 34 year old shock seals had failed!! must be warranty on these. so they got sent to the mr mcHanics for a new set. there were 3 special tests and i did intend to walk them but as things happen, on the thursday morning of scrutineering i had the front wheel out awaiting a HD tube, and having read the GCR's realised i had no x brace pad, sidecovers on the bike and the stand needed fixing! additionally a noise and light test so arrived at the site late, passed everything and put the bike into impound. From that point, after 300+ kms in the slipperyist greasiest rutted rocky tree root infested sections (was lots of easy stuff too) all i had to do was fuel it, lube the chain and tighten the front axle nut. unreal bikes this was thursday at 11.00 am getting scrutineered late thursday. i was 6C and here she is at the start of a special test. finally a shot during a work period. Check out ol mates Hodaka 125 (failed in the first section) After all this i managed a Silver medal finish, 20th outright and 14th in class. a sensational event!
