    These look really impressive! Massive weight saving too, as all models are well under 1kg. Only 2 different case sizes though, but they supply special packing material for fitting. http://www.shoraipower.com/default.aspx Who's going to be first to import one?:laugh:

  • Auckland's Helicopter Charity Ride is 6th March


    The Rescue Helicopter Charity Ride organised by Auckland Ulysses is on Sunday the 6th March, leaving Karaka at 10am sharp.

    For those who haven't been on it before, it is a great buzz riding with so many other bikes.

    $10,000 to $12,000 has been raised in previous years, just thru donations and the sale of t-shirts and badges.

    There are no entry fees.

      thanks very Much! I see fat max has a thread on here also to get a group together to funnel their way out to Karaka, so depending on how my organisation on the morning goes that looks like a great option.

      Looks pretty much up SH1 across the bridge and into AUT campus from the flyer. With the number of bikes involved you'd really not want to complicate it too much I notice there is another event over in Devonport on the same day as well. I'm going to hit the cruise here first and maybe venture over to Devonport and drop a donation in thier charity bucket early afternoon.

      Looking forward to it. I joined the breast cancer charity ride late last year, and had a great day.

      Will be there with bells on, sad to say though only on the little bike this year as the big one is still in bits, only 2 really big bits now though.

      The Ride leaves Karaka Bloodstock Centre and travels up the motorway, using the outside lane.We start filtering across after the Victoria Overpass/New Tunnell and finally get ousrselves into the left lane for the Esmonde Road OffRamp. It is actually Akoranga Drive that we want so it is a left turn once on the Esmonde offramp.

      We have food and drinks available to the Akoranga Campus.

      And we also have a Drill Team demostration

      The Bikers and Blues Event that is on in Devonport has chosen to run their event on the same day so that you get the best of everything.

      Well worth coming along and joining in with the other bikes.

      As well as supporting the Helicopter
