Motor Cycle Licensing

Post by jpbyron » Sat Jun 29, 2013 10:29 am

Hi guys we have been planning on making the trip to Lake Gairdner in 2014 from SE QLD. We are building a 100cc motorcycle. I have recently just completed my learners motorcycle lic at the age of 42 and have found out that I am now required to be on my Provisional Lic for a year, taking us beyond the March 2014 event. I am looking for some clarification on the rules as my Provisional motorcycle lic allows me to ride up to a 250cc motorcycle and I will be competing on a 100cc bike. Has anyone dealt with this before, as when you have been driving cars for 25 years and riding dirt bikes for that long I am happy with my capabilities but also don't want to make the long haul and find out that we cannot compete. But Salt Fever has got hold from a couple of trips to Bonneville and we are biting at the bit for next March.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome aboard JP, any info on your build?
Where in SEQ?, there's a few of of us in that area.
Ross Brown is chief bike tech, he should be able to clarify the licence thing but don't see it being an issue.
Especially as you have a car licence.

Cheers

Thanks Jon,
Im actually based in Byron Bay, but the build is on the Gold Coast at my dads. My Dad Warren Afflick and my brother Mitchell are building a blown fuel single 100cc. It was a CRF100F but does not really resemble that any longer. It will def sound good but not sure if the bottom end from MR Honda will hold together. Here is a link to our FB page have regular updates, photos etc.

Cheers for your welcome.

As long as there are no restrictions on your "P" plate I cant see a problem.

"SECTION 7 MOTORCYCLE COMPETITION SPECIFICATIONS
Following are the rules governing motorcycles participating in the DLRA Speed Trials.
7.A GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MOTORCYCLES
7.A.1 Rider’s License:
Land Speed Record attempts or Record Trials are open to all DLRA members in good standing. A current
and valid state driver’s license with a motorcycle endorsement is required."

Edit. I cant see a FB link.

Thanks Dave.

I may be in trouble then as I have a restriction of 90km, so our 100mph goal for a 100cc bike could be an issue. Any ways will see what we can do.

Any way here is the link sorry about that. https://www.facebook.com/AAALandSpeedRacing?ref=hl

Welcome JP

Sounds like a great build,
Funny I remember seeing your dad race his Mach111 at Surfers Drags, 8) would that be right?

Pete,
Thanks for the welcome.
Yes that was my dad on his Mach111 Kawa. Yeh he won a few National Titles on that bike. He later went on to build a few different double Triumphs and won a few more Nationals. Ran 8.3 165mph in 1980. We have had a couple of visits to Bonneville together and thought we should do a project together. We don't have to much to do with the drags these days, we did crew for Gary Phillips Top Alcohol cars for a few years and Gavin Spanns Pro bike and old Nitrous bike. So it is a good buzz to have him on board for this build. Thats why we went with Blown Fuel, if nothing else it will sound good!

You can check out our build and other old pic here - https://www.facebook.com/AAALandSpeedRacing?ref=hl

Cheers J-P

DRLA,
Not a problem, I was not trying to obtain permission of any kind for any qualification etc etc.
I was using the forum to ask fellow racers if they had ever encountered my problem, this I thought was talking about land speed racing stuff.
Thanks for the contact details I will email over the coming days.

Kind regards,

Seeing there was so much talk about Surfers Raceway and Mach 111s, I would share this with you.

Drla,

I guys I sent an email off to the secretary a couple of weeks ago regarding the license questions above. As I have not had a reply, could you please tell me if this person in on the deck at the current time or let me know of another email address of someone else I can direct my question to. Just would like rule clarification before spending further dollars getting ready for Speed Week 2014.

Kind regards,

JP Afflick.
