For DMCC member riders who are part of a DMCC club team or are just pitting with DMCC for the A4DE, MK1 Motorcycles have been able to offer support from Shinko Tyres and Maxima Oils.
For the actual riders on a DMCC club team there are select quantities of tyres being offered free of charge.
Shinko tyres are available to members for the A4DE at a 25% discount from RRP which makes a rear tyre $95 and a front $71 for any knobby pattern the rider wants.
Maxima Oils are suppling 2 stroke oil and range of consumable oils such as chain lube, brake fluid, filter oil, etc. free for use by DMCC who are part of the DMCC team.
If any rider wants to get on board or wants more details of the MK1/DMCC offer, please e-mail Bryan Noble at email@example.com
Any riders who wants to nominate for a DMCC club team please also contact Bryan.
DMCC are endeavouring to support all members at this event who would like some help at controls, work periods, taking fuel, supplies and spares out to controls. So even if you don’t have support crew the club is endeavouring to support and help you out. Even if you have 1 helper they are not able to be at all controls, so this allows riders to have support at all controls, fuel food, spares, etc.
If you plan to ride the event then e-mail Bryan Noble at firstname.lastname@example.org and get your name on the list and advise if you have any helpers or not and what class you have entered so the club can work out how many riders we have, how many helpers we have and then how many extra helpers the club needs to rally to support the riders at every control.
DMCC are also entering club teams for the event but to do this need to know who has actually entered.
The plan is to have modern and vintage club teams and with quite a few vintage riders entered most likely get a couple vintage club teams entered.
There is no cost to the riders for the club team as this will be covered by DMCC and they will do the club team entry nomination.
If you are entered for the A4DE in Cessnock and are a DMCC member and want to be part of the DMCC contingent then please e-mail Bryan and let him know your details.
A ride will take place on SUNDAY 14 October starting around 12.30 from Enterprise Ave Berwick.
The destination is Noojee way.
If you are interested in coming, texting or emailing a response would be appreciated.

There were three in the crew: Daren, Wilko aka Father Brian on a 350 who's the smoothest rider I've seen, and me.
We had a chilly start to the morning leaving Erica, even after letting it warm up a bit while we ate our bacon and eggs ???? breakfast at the 1914 cafe. But it wasn't chilly for long as DARREN had us working from the get go. New knobbies (for some) kept the red mud under control and gave us big smiles as we power-slid out of damp leafy turns ????.
A short section of "are you sure there's a track there?" hand cut got the heart pumping as we negotiated fallen trees and steep banks. After a quick latte ☕ at Walhalla the forestry conditions turned more open and rocky as we ascended mountains that seemed to go on forever (stegz are awesome!) then descended again down some of the steepest tracks I have ridden (better replace the brake fluid) ????.
The ride along deep creek no. 1 was pretty special, as was descending the switchbacks of Trig track, wondering how we would get out again. A DARREN-special bit (nudge nudge, ????????) sent us down plane track which was so steep even Wilko stopped at one point to suss out an approach.
Unfortunately after plane track, on the slow, flat, gravel, car park access road Wilko had a momentary lapse in a corner and ended up in a ditch. A broken collarbone meant the end of his ride and he took the main road back to the car.
DARREN and I pressed on. A bike swap was done: I believe DARREN was most impressed with the recent suspension work on the WR, and I of course blown away with the any-gear any-time on-tap power of the 500. Wow.????
The ride was billed as a "tank of gas" ride and that was pretty much spot on. About 2km out of town the 500 rolled to a stop on the side of the main road into Erica. ⛽
While we were transferring some fuel from the WR refuelling tanker, the local boys in blue turned up. I'm now thinking maybe I should've got a DOT tyre, but all they wanted was a chat and to hand out a bike safety brochure.
We finished the day with a couple of frothies ???? at the pub while DARREN chatted to all the locals.
A top ride ????. Bravo Mr Pay, bravo ????.
