  • Kawasaki "Good Times" Drag Day, 16th November 2014

    Meremere Dragway, State Highway 1 Meremere


    It’s that time of year again, Kawasaki “Good Times” drag day is only a few weeks away.

    We look forward to seeing you there on Sunday the 16th of November.

    Gates open at 10:00am and we open up the strip at 12:00pm.

    Of course if you are on a Kawasaki it’s free to run, other brands $30.

    New for this year, we will be running a road loop and here’s your chance to road demo one of Kawasaki’s exciting new models. We envisage these demo bikes will be busy so pre-book with your participating dealer to avoid disappointment.

    For more details please look on our website or call your local dealer.

    Come and join us as it will be a fun day for all, spectators are free and there will be an appearance from Ian Wilkins with his Top Fuel Drag Bike Afterburner 2.

    More information, http://www.kawasaki.co.nz/news/article/129

    Road Bikes must have a current warrant of fitness and registration.

    Race bikes must have proof of current tech inspection or MNZ approved log book and will be tech inspected to MNZ specs.

      Which date is correct? This one or the other one you posted for the 3rd? Or both?

      Both read as the same one off event.

      My guess would be neither. Maybe the 16th of November this year? It is a Sunday.

      Edit: Link confirms it as 16/11/14

      I want to compare my Z1000 with that cool looking new Z1000 I keep seeing in Hamilton motorcycles.... Also this time I have a new WOF, new rego and new brake pads all round, should be good to go.
