It is an awesome event, and its not a pity .... Just beg, borrow, or steal yourself an old bike and get there. OK Don't really steal one, but you know what I mean.

On behalf of Greg:-

Updated details for the Brooweena Twinshock Nonstop Trial - Sat 30/6 & Sun 1/7/12.

The trial is a Twin Shock nonstop event, with a very social leaning. The huge bonfire on Saturday night continues that social scene and the weekend concludes with a ride on Sunday morning, allowing those who have travelled time to get home.

The event is organised by the Maryborough district riders, and will run under the direction of CQ Trials Club (a Motorcycling Queensland (MQ) affiliated club).
An MQ licence is required to ride at the event, Single Event Licences will be available.
Riding fees: Nomination $10 per rider, Non-CQTC club members add $5, Single Event licence, if required add $20 (please advise if required, to ensure enough on hand).
The event is non-competitive (no trophies/awards), only for Classic and Post Classic motorcycles (Twinshock pre 1986), non-stop rules apply.
Sections will cater for Novice, Clubperson and Open Level riders.
Event timetable: Saturday, scrutineering & sign-on 12:30pm to 1:15pm, rider's briefing 1.15pmto 1:30pm, start 1:30pm - up to last rider finishes the last section.
Sunday, scrutineering & sign-on 8:00am to 8:45am, rider's briefing 8:45am to 9:00am, start 9:00am - up to last rider finishes the last section.

Camping: Saturday night self sufficient camping available, although a long drop toilet will be provided. Communal fire on Saturday night.

Directions:
Here are directions for once you get to Brooweena township:
It is a tiny town and the trial is on a cattle property that adjoins the built up area on the Northern side of town. There are usually small signs directing the way to the event from the centre of town. From the Maryborough-Biggenden Rd , turn into Corfield St, drive North past the timber mill, cross the train line, veer left at the museum/heritage building, climb the hill and then go past the school. After about 600m take the right fork (Clifton Creek Right Rd), continue on for about another 600m and turn right into the property at the bottom of the hill.
If you still have problems, just ask someone for Noel's place (where the bike ride is).

Here are directions for the town of Brooweena

Crow flight directions - Brooweena is approx 50km west of Maryborough and 30 km east of Biggenden.

Road directions:
If travelling from North of Gin Gin, turn west off Bruce Highway between Gin Gin and Childers to get to Biggenden, then take the road that goes SE from Biggenden towards Gympie/Woolooga. At about 26km from Biggenden turn east towards Maryborough/Brooweena. Brooweena is approx 9km from the turn.

If travelling from the South of Maryborough, turn west off the Bruce highway towards Biggenden where the Bruce Highway bypasses Maryborough.

OK we've got all the official info about Brooweena sorted, but what about the important stuff?
What is the theme going to be this year?
Over the years, we've had "world record?" success for most TY Yamahas at a trial, and same for Montesa Cota 348s and Kawasaki KT250s. The seven KT250s in one spot at the same time impressed me the most. There have also been some pretty extreme blingmobiles ridden over the years too. As far a weird goes, one year there was even a twin cylinder Triumph. Even the legendary long-distance traveller from Tasmania (Smack) is planning to put in another appearance. So what's next? What are people bringing and riding? What can we set up that will further extend the fame of our little winter solistice ritual Twinshock and Classic love-in at Brrrrooweena?

Sadly, I only have the one little orange beastie in my shed, so naturally that's what I'm bringing. Its not rare, or exotic or even a thing of beauty, but at least it'll be there. And I'll still be able to enjoy seeing whatever other fine machinery (and riders) turns up.

We will have said "orange beastie" there as well. But @Mark K I reckon they are a thing of beauty and very capable. Their was a swag of them at Lowmead and we had ten twin shock riders. Pretty standard TY 175s got second and third and beat my eurotrash SWM .
