  2. hi. who will be judging the show?
    is there a set format for the judge/s? or will it just be awarded on personal taste/like of the winner/s?
  3. Hi there Blur1,

    Judges will be announced closer to the event. once we've received the final representatives names from M.A, motorcycle dealerships & motorcycling clubs that are attending.

    There will also be a crowd favourite award which everyone attends has the opportunity to vote for.

  4. it sounds like it's going to be well organised.
    i'll be attending for sure.
    here's hoping the weather holds out.

    p.s, i assume the entrants get to see racing during the day (sunday) too?
    and are the show bikes undercover or in the elements?
  5. This will be an excellent opp to show off the VMAX 1700 with all of its carbon fibre and many mods, did well last year at a few Show and Shines, hoping its a winner again this year :)

    Cheers B

    PS Was thinking of adding the MV to the Show and Shine but that is only a thought at this point in time (its had a face lift and a few carbon mods) .............I'm talking myself into it LOL
  6. is anyone coming? i'll be there.

    thats a pretty big drawcard to have haha.
  7. Well i'll be there too, hopefully watching Steve Tozer claim back his superbike vic champs title !!

    Yes where the show & shine area is, is next to the track viewing area, so we'll see all the racing on Sunday.

    We're allowing entries on the Sunday morning also.

    I've taken on board feedback i've received from entrants experiences with other promoters show & shine events, so we have a checklist printed out for our judges must mark for each bike, we're asking the judges to thoroughly look over every bike to ensure judging is accurate & fair.

    The Ulysses club geelong & macedon ranges, Yamaha & virago club of Vic, CBX Honda club of Australia, classic & custom japanese motorcycle club of vic, vintage motorcycle club of Vic are attending to display their club bikes & help judge a few categories..

    Shaping up to be an exciting day !!
  8. what's the best time to turn up if you're just a spectator? And just to confirm, it's $20 right?? (I'm talking about Sunday only)
  9. yeah should be $20.

    sunday start will be 9am for warm ups then racing starting near 10am i spose. will have a lunch break around 12.30 ish depending on the amount of crashing.
  10. judging by your updated last crash date it could be a early lunch?
  11. its a motard, you just pick it up and get back all the spots you lost haha!

    but srs, i plan to keep it upright this weekend.

    ps. that was an offroad crash so it doesnt count :p
  12. this Supermoto is all new to me. It looks fkn mental and a tonne of fun....well to watch anyway!
  13. See those of you who will be at Broadford tomoz in the morn :)
  14. looked to be a good turnout. i was looking forward to the day until my bike blew up on the warm up lap of my 1st race of the day.
  15. I didn't end up getting on the bike at all today :( Really wanted to get along to this too. How did Bruce go with the bike show?

  17. Congrats B. Wish I could've been there.
  18. Damn, Bruce!!! That's AWESOME!!
  19. Since VMAX's sign said that he'd spent $50,000 on the beats...he deserved it!!

    (I was very polite and didn't enter my K16 against all those Honda 6 cylinders. I didn't want to upset them ;) )
  20. What a great day !

    The vmax was a great bike, the judges thought it looked sleek & futuristic so it won the modern bike class, some motul products, rim stickers & a broadford track day prize (don't take the vmax to that one though) lol
