VJMC will hold a Virtual Show and Shine for all members!
Many events scheduled for 2020 have since been cancelled or postponed amid the ongoing threat of the new coronavirus. This includes the 2020 National Rally in Toowoomba which has been cancelled, but VJMC will be holding a Virtual Show and Shine for all VJMC members!
Following the huge disappointment for many VJMC members at the cancellation of the National Rally in Toowoomba, one member suggested hosting a Virtual Show and Shine display. Considering how much money, time and effort many members had put into their various project bikes over the past year in anticipation of displaying their pride and joy in Toowoomba, the Rally committee promptly set the wheels in motion to make Gary’s suggestion a reality.
After one week of brainstorming and getting the Webmasters blessing and support, VJMC are ready to launch the Virtual Show and Shine on the club website. You will need to login to enter or vote but not to view.
One important and significant fact of the Virtual Show and Shine is that all VJMC members nationwide are wanted to participate by sharing photos of their bikes irrespective of whether they were attending the 2020 Rally or not.
VJMC are encouraging members from as far away as Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory to show other club members their magnificent machines which would not normally be seen at National Rallies but are often put on display for local events. Entry is free.
Entries are limited to Japanese motorcycles that fall into these categories
- 1950’s era.
- 1960’s era.
