Kan­ga­roo col­lec­tion

Old Bike Australasia - - BLOW YOUR OWN -

In is­sue 64, I found men­tion of the Kan­ga­roo Rally in the ar­ti­cle on the Velo Thrux­ton. I am send­ing a pic of my Kan­ga­roo Rally pen­nants as I think I at­tended them all, as well as the “back-to” at­tempts that were made to res­ur­rect it in 1985 and 2007. I also have the Rally badges from these pinned to the 1966 pen­nant. I guess it shows I am a hoarder. Still the best mo­tor­cy­cle ral­lies I have ever

been to. While dig­ging them out I also found a pen­nant from my old club in Mel­bourne (New­port and District MCC) and one I won on the speed­way at Mt Gam­bier. In­ci­den­tally I en­joyed the ar­ti­cle you did on my friend Barry Thomp­son, and just a thought, some­one who should not be left out of our mem­o­ries is Karel Mor­lang. Per­haps an ar­ti­cle on him may be worth a look.
