    Burt Munro Challenge

    The Burt Munro challenge was on over the weekend down here, thought I'd go along and shoot some photos of 2-wheeled antics for a change. The whole challenge includes a bunch of events (hillclimb, moto-x, beach race, speedway, circuit and street races) but I only got to the street race. Good fun though, some photos for the secret power rangers among you:

    This guy is a legend - one arm, one leg and still racing hard:

    Apparently he prefers turning left for some reason...

    Apparently some bikes are less reliable than others:

    The rest here if you haven't had enough yet:

    Great photo's
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Awesome mate!
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
