SERIES WRAP UP -
VSE 2016 EVENT COVERAGE
Overnight rain made for challenging, slippery conditions on the shaded parts of the course in the 2016 edition of the VSE Vinduro held in Riverhead Forest on the outskirts of Auckland.
An epic hard event in its day Raglan Enduro was akin to the heroics of the modern Romaniacs. Despite the effort required to finish riders would party hard on occasions right through to dawn. Happy daze indeed. Includes Raglan 1981 ADB article.
ROTORUA MCC DAYS
The Burgess family and the Rotorua MCC are names that went hand in hand in offroad motorcycling for many years. Here's some fascinating photos from a box Paul and Neil Burgess dug out of the cupboard that show just how much fun they really had.
More great photos from Shane and Lee Kelly of those crazy seventies and eighties Waitemata MCC and NZ Enduro Champs events.
HARD MEN WANTED
We are looking for some real hard men to ride the Vinduro 4 speed Vintage Class at the 40th VSE endure celebrations. That’s right Vinduro NZ’s vintage class caters especially for old-school four speed dirt bikes like this 1969 Triumph Trophy.
Vinduro is currently the growth area in classic off road riding with events run in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, France, UK, USA and Australia. On these pages we'll be posting photos and video from Vinduro events out side NZ.
NORTH SHORE DAZE
Shane Kelly shared this great bunch of pics with us. Shane was bred on Auckland's North Shore where dirt bikes were a popular way to get around and weekend fun. The photos give a great flavour of the times including some of the basic transport modes used in those simpler and far less plentiful days.
