    Thread Starter: mister.koz

    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    Thread Starter: Mental Trousers

    Well after the bullshit circus MotoGP 2015 turned into I'm 100% behind Pedrossa, Dovizioso and Iannone for 2016. Good to see they're going to the Red Bull Ring too. Bring on next years racing.

    Sick of being ripped off

    Thread Starter: cadium

    Why is it that we are so bloody ripped off in New Zealand. There's the usual tripe about shipping cost to NZ and GST but in truth it goes a lot further than that. Take the new Honda Africa Twin DCT. in the USA it is NZ$18500 in the UK (with 20% VAT!) it is NZ$20400 in Australia (basically...

    Honda Fireblade - do I have water in the tank?

    Thread Starter: IronPawz

    I'd say this one is easy. My 2015 Blade (53,000kms) gets ridden rain, hail and shin to work and is showing issues that would seem water in tank to me. Flutters at times particularly when coming out of a good lean (not many on my ride but one particular good spot after a hard lean it really...
