  1. Bridge Cafe

    Damn, two months between rides is tough going. I got a bit of a surprise when I filled this morning to see that the last fill was on 14 June and even if I hadn't been working 7 days a week since that last ride, I doubt I would have been out much as the weather has been such crap. I don't mind riding in the rain but what gets me is the focus required to find a line through the tar slicks. Our roads really are in crappy condition.

    I was supposed to work today but last night I thought, ...

    Lower Prices (6months)



    Price is well below the cost of purchase and build.

    Car Jam shows KM 130tho but 97 done in a 6month period indicates likely speedo replacement. The speedos cost a lot new and reconditioning a faulty one is also expensive.

  4. Long John Silver on - Riding further than the next latte.

    When I changed from riding an Intruder cruiser to the ST1300 sports tourer, I considered getting a radar detector, however, I figured that a detector might well encourage me to ride faster than the allowable limits and therefore opted an alternative measure of speed control and that was riding off the economy gauge, whereby if the speed rose and the economy dropped, then one was inspired to button off a bit. Ahh the joys of being a tight-arse!

    The other major factor that entered into ...

  5. 2015 tt2000

    Mate, I dunno about you but Iím fair buggered.
    The poster on the fridge in the smoko room at Suzuki NZ, Wanganui hit us like a bombshell. Rob Gardiner went on to explain what had happened and that understandably due to his medical condition Mike Hyde, the author of the Twisting Throttle books and the driving force behind the TT would not be there to wave us home.
    It was a sobering moment reminding us how fickle and fragile life is; you never know when itís going to stand up and ...

  6. MOSFET regulator/rectifier on a Honda CB1000R Predator

    The regulator/rectifier terminated itself on my bike (Honda CB1000R Predator). It also damaged the battery so that it was unable to hold a charge. It's the second bike I have owned that this has happened to.

    I went down to the local Honda parts dealer. I don't know why, but I assumed since they were such a common part they would be readily available in the country. I was really hoping to get the bike going again, so when I was told that it would takes 2 weeks and it would come ...
  7. Tasmanian Motorcycling Museum

    Tasmania is a pretty neat place to come for a motorcycling tour. There are windy roads, not many people, a whole range of landscapes (mountains, coastlines, highways) - apart from the fact that possums are protected, it's quite a bit like NZ. Just like NZ, there are out-of-the-way gems that you just can't go past once you know they're there. The motorcycle museum at Bicheno is one of these. Not only a museum, it is also a bike repair shop, and a great place to stop off for a yarn.
