    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. ...

    Grey Gold

    Thread Starter: Beekeeper

    Checking out the trademe listings, as you do, and there seems to a lot of old bikes from the 70's mostly that people are trying to and in some cases selling for pretty ridiculous prices. Bikes like GT Suzuki's, CB Honda's and a plethora of other plain old crap. Those bikes were not very good in...

    Dyneema jeans from Blackwood Safety

    Thread Starter: GazzaH

    Spotted this jeans ad in the Blackwoods Safety flier. "Dyneema" is marketed as "the world's strongest fibre", an ultra long polythene molecule for the chemists among us. It has several advantages over Kevlar (aramid). I doubt even Dyneema jeans are as road-rash-resistant as decent leathers...

    Leh/Ladakh motorcycyle trip.

    Thread Starter: Katman

    Apparently, about a year ago there was an article written in the Kiwirider magazine reviewing a motorcycling trip done in the Ladakh area of India. Having just completed the same trip, run by the same operator, I'm keen to read the article. Can anyone please point me to which issue I need to...

      Between this and Paeroa , always one of my favourite weekends of the year. Love the access and general freindliness of the event. Usually at least a couple of generations, sometimes three, coming up for four, of my family milling around sniffing aroma of castrol etc and enjoying the sights and sounds. Usually see familiar some faces and enjoy some respectfull banter with other like minds. Always regret it if I don't get there.

      These lads are a bunch of fun to travel with, there's still a couple of seats so no need to outbid each other, if you want to go PM me and i'll give you their details, I think there's already a number on there too.

      Festival was cool, spent a couple of hours at Puke on Sunday with a camera, they certainly know how to peddle the 'ol machines... Fun!

      Great pics, you even got me on my BMW R90 bitza #146, riding my first ever race.
      Maann some of them bikes can go, I was stoked just being there, a win in the scratch event just made my day...week...year.
      It only took 5 years but it was worth the effort.

      Had a look at your website, you've certainly got the talent with the camera! Alas, as I don't have a dollar to my name at the moment, I'll have to wait a few weeks before I see how much a .JPG download will cost me.

      Thanks PirateJafa, I'm much better on a camera than a racing bike, took too many years to admit it Finally, after 55 yrs, I think I have found my calling..

      There was some incredibly rare and expensive machinery there: http://geoffjames.blogspot.co.nz/201...-macphail.html

      The Kreidler 50 was my personal favourite - exquisite engineering. Finding someone light enough to ride it must have been a real problem!
