    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...

    1972/3 Honda SL125 x 2 rebuild

    Thread Starter: Laava

    So I have had this old SL125 in the shed for years and it used to run ok but I couldn't get the points cover screws out so when it needed a tune up, it just got left to sit. I dont name my bikes or give them a male or female status, but this bike was called Peanut. I can't remember why... Anyhow,...

    Over confident as a new rider

    Thread Starter: Al Bundy 4eva!

    I'm into my 7th month of riding, I ride every day, I noticed this week I'm becoming more confident or should I say riskier. Told myself twice to tone it down, for some dumb reason my actions don't listen to my thoughts. It's like having an angel and a devil on each shoulder, and the devil's...

  • Cancer Ride Postponment

    Cancer Baton Ride Postponed 24 hours

    *Ride now postponed till Sunday 4th*

    The warnings are out and the risks are high...Wind Gusts/Rain/Debris
    It is unwise and dangerous to ride in such conditions.
    I have pm'd all Regional Leaders and they are in agreement.

    The weather system will be gone by the time our feet hit the floor on Sunday and I believe that is the better/safer day to do this ride.


    All times and stops remain in place...see ya there.

      ''MetService meteorologist Daniel Corbett said a deep and vigorous low would pass over the North Island.

      "This is a serious situation and poses a weather hazard for many North Island places. Gales are expected over all of the North Island. These may be severe and damaging in some areas, particularly on Saturday morning."

      Corbett said the forecasters still had to see the whites of the storm's eyes, but the wind could reach 120kmh and sea swells 6-8 metres.

      The gale-force northerly winds would be followed by a rough south-westerly.

      Corbett said it would also be cold, with temperatures generally lower than normal.

      "This is a recipe for cold driving rain," Corbett said. "Those who are out and about on Saturday are likely to describe the conditions with words like 'miserable' or 'atrocious'."

      Well done,must admit watching forecast I was dubious re winds,no way is it safe if gusts of 120plus km.

      There are many times when deep and vigorous is just whatcha need, but not when it comes to a weather system.....

      Good call and looking forward to Sunday.
