Did you go to the VJMC?
« Started on: 05-Mar-11, 16:04 »
Well today I decided to pop down and have a look at some very nice classic (and some not so classic) japanese Motorcycles.

I did notice a couple of CX's as I walked around but showers started to come in and I was starting to get a little damp so I called it a day and headed off home.

I was hoping to meet some of you but as I passed the bikes it appeared that the owners were elsewhere, anyway I got a couple of pic's.

Is it Ok to post them here?

The blue bike looks like Kathy's CX500

I do not know who owns the black Shadow

The CX650 is Ian's from the Central Coast (not a member here)

The CX500 Turbo is Lindsay's (Olwesty)

Thanks for the photo's

Great turn out..a few showers but nothing major.

All the Euros were 650s...no 500s this year. Have to get mine out next year!!!      2smiley

Best bikes were maybe a mint GT250 X7, Yam midnight special in black and gold, some smick looking GSX1100s, nice to see 2 XJ900s too, an RE5 Suzuki, CX500 cafe, some very nice 60s Hondas, some cool XR75s.
Missing in action....no CBX750s, only the 1 Turbo (Honda of course....go Olwesty!!!) and no GPZ900s! Where are they all..on ebay maybe??     2rolleyes

Great to put faces to names and catch up with some old friends.   happy0158

Had a GREAT time. There were 15 CX's all up.
No info yet on where the rally will be next year but we hope it will be at the same great venue.
1 turbo -Lindsay
2 Interstate GL's. A 500 and 700 -Don and Harold
2 Customs. -Ian 666 and Ron
3 650's -Ian, Enzo and Willy
The rest were Shadow 500's including a cafe.
Not all were members :tent:

A  few of us camped and others roughed it in cabins and motels.
Well organised and very nice rides through country lanes twisy and curvy, great scenery
Hope you get there next year.
NOW for Sutton next weekend.......will be even better

I was there!
Rode the black 78 Shadow down from Tamworth & camped closer to the amenities than some others (you may recall the generator hum). It was really nice to meet Kathy & others on the Saturday - I don't think I would have escaped the carpark without being collared by forum regulars! I must apologise for being a member of the forum since 08 & not posting AT ALL but looking back, I think it was a case of gathering lots of info before buying the bike & then retiring to tinker & occasionally ride the thing. I then bought a Guzzi & moved in that direction before putting the CX on VJMC club plates & rediscovering how good the bike is.
Thanks again for your hospitality - I'll drop in more regularly.. happy0207

  I wouldn't have thought the Norton type paint scheme would look so good on a CX cafe, but it does!
