    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save Merv doing it. Got a big shuffle in teams for this one boys, lets hope Ducati have finally cracked on to a good combination with Miller and Bags after so many years. I'm also hoping Aprilia will have fixed their engine gremlins from...

    Close call....

    Thread Starter: johcar

    Commuting home on Friday and a dickhead in a blue tradie ute deliberately tries to take me out. The video shows: he's not indicating to change lanes there's no opening in the lane to our left the vehicle in front is not braking (therefore not an evasive measure)

  • North Island 1,600 -- 11 & 12 October 2014

    North Island 1,600 - 11 & 12 October 2014

    Are you a rider who enjoys riding long distances? Do you love riding through the night? Would you like to see some of the North Island's more obscure sealed by-ways? Enjoy the company of others afflicted by the same disease?

    The you should open your calendars and mark 11 & 12 October 2014.

    The North Island 1,600 is on its way!

    It's not a race. It's an endurance ride, intended to capture the spirit of previous similar North Island events. Yet it's also all new, and will have it's own personality and way of getting things done.

    There's more information about this event on the website www.distanceriders.org.nz

    Sign up for the newsletter on the website so you get regular updates.

    We'll need a capable non-riding team for this event to make sure everything runs smoothly, so volunteers for those roles will be highly valued.

    There's a lot of work going on getting this organised.

      7:00pm on Friday 10 October will reveal all. Remember that the North Island 1,600 isn't a Grand Challenge. It will develop its own "traditions".
