  1. What a long road of Prep

    Biker Bee and myself have feverishly prepping our stable of buckets, getting ready for the next KoK. We need to make the next meeting in Sept though to give the bikes and good shake down. here's how they stand;

  2. BEARS race bikes for hire

    Anyone interested in giving BEARS race ago? The BEARS club in Canterbury has 2 Ducati 400 race bikes they hire out for only $100 per meeting. This covers all costs, fuel, entry, day license. The idea is to encourage new riders into the sport by letting them have a go first before purchasing their own bike. You must be a competent road rider or had some junior competition experience. For more details & photos see their site.
