Kowen 2017 saw the biggest turnout ever with tracks to test the keenest of weekend warrior. From steep loamy hills to creek crossings, wide open fire trails to tight & technical singles , all that made the trip from far & wide seemed to have a blast. A great weekend getaway put on by the DSMRA for all off roaders to enjoy catching up with old mates & many new friendships spawned. If you have heard, read or considered going to this event my only suggestion is JUST DO IT! Check out all the action from the weekend in the following gallery.
The annual Central table lands trailbike ride brought over 1400 riders from far & wide to the state forrest of Sunny corner which happened to be the 30th year of the event running. With over 1400 riders hitting the trails sounds a lot however the hills of the Sunny corner has a lot to offer. Conditions were shaping up to be prime to the event with some rain to wet down the dust in the weeks prior to the event which keep the trails in perfect condition. The organisation that goes on behind this event is second to none with everything from keeping you fed to the entertainment to the loo's all taking place in the middle of the now famous SUNNY Corner.

It was a frosty start to the Kowen ride this year as the ride had been postponed twice due to the wet weather, but as anticipated the riders came from far & wide to enjoy the hospitality of the Canberran branch of the DSMRA. It was a great ride & camping weekend that was enjoyed by everyone & even though there was quite a chill to the air at night & early in the morning it didn't seem to keep many away. A huge thank you to all the organisers, track setters, volunteers & of course the Vietnam Veterans who kept the food cooking for the hungry hoards. This event is run like a well oiled machine, from the time you arrive at the front gate to the scrutineering , licence board right through to the merchants & the band. Another great ride for the DSMRA & hope to see everyone back ,bigger & better than ever next year. See you on the track

It is that time of year yet again when the Watagan trailbike rally comes around & you can hear the rumble of trailbikes throughout the forest of the central coast. As usual it was an awesome event put on by Powersport central, Rod Cartwright & his trusty team. This year the course was a bit dryer than previous years, however down in the depths of the forest the mud never dries. It was an awesome weekend of tall stories of rides from years gone by and the realisation that we are all getting older, but the "kid" in all of us never dies. If you were lucky enough to be able to hit the trails with the rest of us that weekend & you spotted me on the track, chances are I captured you in full flight. So why not have a look at the gallery from the Watagans trailbike rally 2013.
The sun is hanging up there, the track has been groomed again, so if you or a friend were lucky enough to get down to Wollongong motocross track 27-07-2013 to have some fun, check out this gallery & you might even see yourself.

The Central tablelands Motorcycle Club puts on an annual rally that attracts in excess of 900 riders that take part in the Sunny corner trailbike rally. With the rally held over two days and with long/short loops, hard and easy sections, there is a great weekends ride for all who take part. Have a look at all the details here http://www.sunnycorner.com.au/index.htm
Well it was a great ride again, well done to Rod Cartwright and his team. There were the usual HARD & Easy sections some of wich were trickier than they looked. The weekend started out very cold and windy on the saturday however as sunday rolled on the wind dropped and the only other concern was the clouds of dust as the groups of riders passed by. If you are new to the sport or a veteran and have thought you have ridden it all why not try a RALLY. Well worth it and with prizes to boot.
