    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda.

I imagine it was there to stop shit from ficking up into the cowling area. In reality it does didly squat and is just an annoyance when working in...

    North Island Tour

    Thread Starter: Blackbird

    There's nothing like the south island for touring by bike but some mates and I were due to attend a conference in Porirua late last month and decided to turn it into a tour of some of the north island's back roads whilst we were at it. I haven't toured for over 5 years and it was genuinely good...

      At least I was game enough to make my prediction in October - you don't see Tamati predicting that far out!

      Also, after about 11 of these - it's been wet more times than dry...looking forward to a sunny one!

      Excellent job - thanks Bandit rider...I was on the ride...but didn't much enjoy the bits you didn't show - the windy stuff over the top to Pongaroa in the misty rain - damned glasses and visor fogged up every 2 mins...and the windy stuff from Pongaroa with a stream of faster riders wanting to pour past and enjoy the finish line instead of the ride.Mark
