Nice pic James, got any more from the ride or the bikes?

No Reece. That was just with my phone. There was a group shot taken at the end although not sure who had the cameras.
AdrianH
Thanks for the advice guys. I had a look and got a shipping price between 24 and 44 dollars. He was looking at UPS not USPS - UPS are unbelievable.

Martin's Rockford Files: Part 5

I've been so busy I just haven't had the time to post up all the photos and videos from my Rockford trip yet. I have HEAPS!

Here's one of the car park. It was a perfect day. Do these guys come prepared or what? These were mainly from the new school nationals being held there. One thing that did strike me was how small the old school section was. I was expecting it to be 10 times bigger than what it actually was. Maybe it was all those years of anticipation.

I'll try and post up more over coming weeks.

Waz told me last year that our Knox gathering was as big as Rockford..
www.martin-bike.com
I wouldn't be surprised at all. Maybe the economy has dampened things down a little.

One thing that people were very aware of there was how kicking the Aussie scene was. They were all full of high praises for it.
Kurt.
Great pics as always Martin! Wow, those motorhomes.

Well done Adrian. yeah, Fedex and UPS are pirates. USPS Global Priority is my plan of choice.
www.martin-bike.com
I think I should post at least one photo of a bike from that day:

Just one photo? C'mon Martin.... Hehehehee

Nice plumbers bike smile.gif

Ok Mike.

Here's one for the Mongoose freaks:



Here is Chris and his Dad's stand. This was by far the most touching thing I experienced all weekend. Chris and his dad both collect. The dad seemed more excited than the son. He used to take him to races as a kid and now they both collect. They setup this tent and the PK in the photo is the bike he raced as a kid. It won one of the titles. When Chris got up to accept his award, he thanked his dad and nearly brought a tear to everybody's eye. What an awesome dad.

+1 there.. this year will be massive
AdrianH
Great pics Martin. Its hard to believe sometimes how many guys are willing to get together with their bikes, but then again the bike parks, race tracks and council tracks were packed with the same kids/adults back min the 80's anyway lol.

Deal pending on a set of Mighty Force forks Mick. biggrin.gif

hey all. just got back from a month in the States touring in my band. was awesome. no Bmx news unfortunately. here s a link to some pics...

http://www.ecsr.com.au/p/0main.html

will be finishing my Two Four and hopefully seeing some of you at Robertos. Danny

Jarvi
Cool photos Danny. Feel like I was almost on tour with you after going through them. So glad I'm not the only one to take photos of my meals.

A great insight into what looks like a fun time. Would make a great coffee table book. Perhaps you should give Kramer a call.

hey James. yeah my girlfriend love food/cooking so i thought id show her i wasnt eating burgers. ended up being down in Redondo beach when in L.A. not sure where you were, but its a mission to get around without a car. my mate has this though.

AdrianH
Love the photos Danny. Some of that food looked strange tho lol.
Jarvi
I was up in Venice, so a bit of a distance. LA does suck without a car although I did ride Venice to Redondo one day. Next time you are there, grab that GT and do the beach ride. Only hills are at the Redondo end and they are pretty easy.
COASTY
Nice pics. I hope I can get over there one day. I must do it.
mcam
I'm feeling all jet setty smile.gif I fly into Melbourne on Sunday morning for work, and fly out Wednesday night. And in mid September, I might be heading to Irvine, California for two weeks, for work. I hope to catch up with the Cali guys if I get there smile.gif

Hey guys does anyone know how I can get onto bmxmom, a few posts have been made here & I am in need of some asistance, im not wanting to keep using this site under this username....
Kurt.
Hey Craig,

She gets a LOT of PMs so might be hard to get her that way. I think last time she posted she said that Mike Carruth had to fix it - she didn't have the right access. He is very hard to get to answer. I started a thread in the siite technical support section last time I needed something from Mike.
Kurt.
Here Craig: http://www.vintagebmx.com/community/index.php?showforum=5

Also, great pics Danny! Looks like you had a cool time.

Scott and I had another session at the jumps today. Both now carrying a couple of injuries, however, still a good day.

After this jump Scott had to make some in-jeans adjustments as things wouldn't self correct.









This is another reason why I prefer news school bikes. After riding Scott's bike brakeless last week I was making a conscious effort to not ride mine with my mandatory two fingers on the lever. Problem was when I finished the jump and heading straight for the bushes I forgot I had brakes and did the duck for cover roll into the trees. I ended up on all fours over the bike. Note the bars and also the stick poking out of the rear wheel.







Did my first one hander today after a 28 year break. Then the confidence rose and managed this one.



And yes, we did get told off for not wearing helmets.

Video footage to come later, once I've put it together. Don't hold your breath in anticipation, more crashes than anything else.
COASTY
Excellent pics James. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun today.
