  1. Kawhia to Raglan.

    Kawhia to Raglan.

    I had been thinking about a ride a bit more challenging than the usual roads. The coastal roads from Kawhia to Raglan were roads that I had not travelled at all. Riding them on a scooter would be an interesting angle.

    So this morning Buggsy and I fueled up, him with gas, me with food and drink. Out past Pirongia we took a right at the Ngutunui school and climbed up Pekanui road. Since my last blast up this road, there have been a number of corners ...

  2. super sherpa story



    recently picked up a 1998 kawasaki super sherpa (KL250-H2) with approx 9500KM on it, a fair bit of rust on the muffler/join clamp and some rust on nearly all bolt heads and some on the frame frame

    the previous owner(s) have stripped the threads in the crank case? for the oil drain bolt, and I received the bike on very low oil with a whole lot of locktite sludge around the bolt holding it in. still the bike started fine. the air ...
  3. Senior Kiwi in Central America

    THE TOUR BEGINS

    I am now in Guatemala, the starting point for a three month motorbike tour of Central America.

    Why Central America? Well I want to learn Spanish. It is a culture I have never experienced and it is small and diverse enough to be interesting and package into the three month window I have available without busting a gut. It caters superbly for my off bike activities of diving and boogie boarding. I want to do the trip on a local bike and Guatemala ...

  4. 2013 c1kc

    Another bloody marvelous day.....Bloody Marvelous!!

    Prep for this year's C1KC started straight after last year's one, when, although I had a couple of potential routes, I was doodling on MapSource (as you do) to see just how far we could get from Wellington, ...without doing an out and return, ...and still be a reasonably interesting route to ride. I was hoping to touch Tauranga but had to settle for Rotorua-Putaruru, so I ran the options past my old Wgtn Uly Ride Committee buddies, ...

  5. Bridgestone VMCC Round 6 @ Taupo






     


    What a great day for riding!!

    On the Wednesday I'd done the test day at Taupo after having swapped out the left side brake disk because the bike had picked up a nasty chattering under brakes. I'd taken the front mud guard off and ridden down the street in second gear and could look down through the fairings and see the left disk wasn't straight so the Wednesday test day was useful to firstly see if the braking was ...

  6. iPhone app launched

    It is with great pride that I can announce that we now have a Dave Moss Tuning phone app. It has been developed over the last few months with an enormous amount of work by several people to get the app to this stage. This is just the start, and over the next several months, content will be added on almost a daily basis and then weekly thereafter for years to come.


    It will really help further my mission in helping riders all over the world in our sport, creating more safety ...

  8. Rides from the middle of nowhere

    We have recently moved to the Pureora Forest park and last weekend got the last of the holes in my 1986 GPZ600 petrol tank fixed so went for a ride to get some milk. 160kms later I was in a great mood that set me up all week. I headed off to Mangkino, aimed for Te Awamutu saw a sign post for Otorahonga. This took me to a T intersection so I choose to go to Ngaroma 'cause I had never been there. The ride from Mango to te Awamutu is really scenic and a good ride the turn off to Oto is still a ...
