Exams are over, weather is good, what happened to all the SMC riders? Are you guys all working in summer jobs now, or still recovering from exams?

I've been texting everyone for a ride and Hungus Maxiumus is the only one so far who has been keen!

Make yourself known on this thread and PM me your name and number if you want me to text you when I'm going for rides (almost daily).

if you can get some rides going on sundays i'll pretty much be there all the time.
Just as long as there are some other 250's because it sucks trying to keep up with all the big sports bikes on the straights (i.e wwh rides).

Sheez, add me to your list of people to invite man! I think I saw you recently on the WWH Coro loop & the Westgate Thurs night ride. I'm doing heaps of riding on the KTM Motard out West Akl at the mo, building up my cornering skills.

Anyway, Kaiaua tomorrow or do you work?

Yeah my KTM sits nicely at 100-110 on straights - so no dramas if we go riding together.

I was out with gijoe's group on sunday and that was a good ride, mainly 2-fiddy's so we were all more or less at the same pace.

If anyone's keen this friday, I may want to take a small loop through whitford and the hunua's if anyone would be keen to come along.

Unfortunately I've got the speedo working now which means I'll be able to compare my speed with the LTSA sign-posted speeds for corners.

Without a speedo I'd see a 45kph corner and think hmmm, try this one in 3rd gear...:niceone:

I need to check its accuracy tomorrow though with another biker, probably reads 120kph when i'm doing 90!

well the viffer is still out of action, and today (tuesday) the buyer of my written off fxr is coming around to pick up, so depending on his timing i might manage a ride on the spare "fixxer" if you're just heading down to huia or somewhere reasonably local to me i'd be glad to meet you guys at titirangi or something after lunch

OMG BETTER IDEA

issac, i have the perfect roads for your ktm right in my backyard (and no i don't mean my paddock) if you guys want to meet at my place as soon as i've removed my radiator i can take you guys on a backroad tiki tour of swanson, and then head up to kumeu (the back way) and i can drop off my radiator and maybe have a look at the wrecker if he's open (i need a brake for a dirtbike), and then we can decide from there if to go riverhead or kaipara south head or back the way we came and/or huia

IMMA GENIUS:D

and even more genius! i could use some extra hands/muscle straightening my bike out;)


I'm free ALL week for whoever's keen, so no need to do it tuesday

You're the only one that seems to be keen so far. I just had the hard word from my supervisor for not handing in the final final copy of my thesis (it needs half a day of changes made). So since it's just you and I so far and you said you'd rather ride on another day, I'm going to do my thesis today instead.

The Orangey-Red LED of Doom is glaring at the moment, telling me the 48mm carbys are getting towards the end of their meal and demand further feeding...

I was tired and weak yesterday after 10 hours of selling building supplies, so accidentally put in the mrs' number instead of my own - just to reiterate, I'm at 027 696 1461. Let me know the plans...

And a good wee dash it was - mildly distrubed at the speed the rear tyre on the VTR seems to be squelching out the back and disappearing...but I guess you get that with a big twin...

Insanely different bikes out there today - well impressed by your Motard Isaac and much respect for Andrew's thrashing of the poor FXR which kept up amazingly well!

A bit of a line up attached...
