    With only 2 days until the new year, and just over 2 months until the season starts it's time for a new thread. Who's your money on? Will Bagnia do the triple? Will Marc return to former glory and bring us a season in which he dominates? Will Martin secure his dream to win a championship?...

    winter sun woe

    Thread Starter: Cosmik de Bris

    hi all, just back from a short ride but the sun at this time of year is truly awful. i think i may be a little bit more sensitive to this because of my 75 year old eyes that have had cataracts fixed and then both retinas detached (thank you sean). to cap it off i have to wear glasses since my 75th...

    Higher octane fuels in lower south island

    So I am dredging this old thread really but figured nobody would read it in that part of the forum - Race-fuel-in-the-S-I Just got me a bike where the manual recommends 98 octane. The three stations near me only go to 95 so it is a 30km round trip to Dunedin to fill up at one of the self serve...

      Hey Steve,

      I'll drop mine around to your place on the weekend, give them a clean and put some air in the tyres for me while I'm away.

      Three more sleeps, this is more exciting than Christmas. I said after having a ball in the rain last year I wouldn't bother looking at a forecast this year, but did have a peek, I'm picking a damp start to the day and improving as the day goes on, pretty usual Greymouth Street Race weather conditions, bring it on Yee-Ha.....

      What a great day, had a bit of everything weather wise, but it was mostly fine.
      I only had one wet race, was pleased the hail stones didn't get any bigger when waiting on the dummy grid. A huge thanks to the set-up and take-down crews and all the flaggies, fire and ambulance people, the people manning the entry gates and track crossings and the marshalls, starters and crew in the caravan, stewards and the commentator as well.

      Thanks to all the competitors and the spectators who braved the conditions just to get there.

      I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did.
      It was a bloody good day, roll on next year.

      Cheers

      What an awesome day/ weekend. Just got back to Gore an hour ago. Thanks to all concerned for an awesome day of racing.
      Like you said Muzza, roll on next year.

      Results attached, not the best way to make the news, but all publicity is good publicity eh.

      My vid from the same race. Not as exciting, but you get the idea. The W650 is a bit heavy for a race bike but a hoot to ride.
