clap: A big thank-you to the team at Biketranz, they made the impossible happen!!! How to get my newly purchased trike from Auckland to Timaru without riding it? On the phone to Karen at Biketranz, she said, I'll talk to Brett. Brett phones, I'm hatching a plan, he says. Next day, Brett had arranged to have my trike transported by sea!! Very much appreciate all the organising done on my behalf, thanks so much Biketranz. And thank-you Karen for the follow-up phonecall.
This post is dedicated to my lovely friends, the gorgeous Lina and her marvellous Johnny. Lina’s in the process of learning to ride a motorbike, and I thought it would be good to write some down of my experiences thus far as an encouragement to stick with it.
Hopefully, it’ll be useful to others too!
Also: boo sucks to boys having all the fun! We need
The end keeps coming off my pipe !!!
Sure sounds bigger than it is now :-(
Anyone else had this problem?
Bought bike with a disk riveted onto end of muffler, re-riveted it couple of weekend ago, lost it on motorway, guy making new one for me and will try bolting on... Ideas please :-))
I went to Taupo on the weekend just been for a track day here is sessions 1. Unfortunately the blog won't let me embed any more video's so here are the rest: http://www.youtube.com/user/xbiggestbossx?feature=watch . It's just a bit of fun really and I'm not particularly good at following lines, downshifting (when going that fast!), and generally just riding a motorbike in general lol. I fitted the Go Pro to the side reflector on my bike which seemed to be a really good location. It picked up the
What a great way to end an excellent summer full of riding.
Thursday evening was the last of the Honda Twilight Ride Days. It's only 3 sessions but it's also really cheap.
Early on Thursday it was looking extremely dodgy with steady rain until about 10:00am, with light rain until about 1:00pm and then the sky cleared. By 4:30pm the roads were bone dry and perfectly clean. It was warming up so the track was
Just joined KB and like to find contacts for refresher courses and training around Palmy. Have bought a Bandit 1250SA in Auckland and rode back to PN this past weekend...with overnight in Taupo. Sat ride was wet until south of Hamilton and it got me wound up, so pulled over in Gordonton and sat it out for a while, with a cafe and snack to 'reset' myself. Felt heaps better for that. Learned a bit too. Developed pressure point in helmet and RH glove seemed to choke my two little fingers! So come Sun,
Finished looking around the classic car show at the Te A racecourse by 11.30, so decided to take the scooter for a run. I took the back road through to Otorohanga, skirted around the township and headed up the Waitomo valley road. Lots of tight corners, a few short strips of re sealing gravel. The country south of Oto certainly needs a lot of rain.
At Waitomo it was left then right into Fullerton road. Thankfully the two tourists cars in front of me were turning off just a few k's
So nerrrd inspired me to start thinking about possibly camping when I go on my trips. It's hard trying to plan trips around where I can stay for free! Tent etc gives you more freedom, well that's the plan anyway...
I'd been using a bag I got for free from the gym I used to go to. It's been helpful for my trips thusfar but no good for when it starts raining.
So anyway I got this bag: http://www.kathmandu.co.nz/packs-and....html?___SID=U
