    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Buells.

    The design is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the torque will go over a typical squid's head. There's also Eric's holistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his motorcycle creations his personal philosophy draws heavily from the minimalism of Marcus...

  • The 2015 North Island 1,600 -- 10-11 October

    Are you one of that elite breed of riders who likes distance rides? Yes? Then read on...

    This year's North Island 1,600 event will be starting in Turangi at 1:00pm on Saturday 10 October. Starters will then have 24 hours to complete the set course, gathering the necessary photos at the various checkpoints and returning to the Turangi finish line. The actual distance will be a bit longer than 1,609km, otherwise known as 1,000 miles.

    The route for the ride will be a closely-guarded secret until it is revealed at 7:00pm on Friday 9 October. It includes a couple of stretches that haven't been ridden before in similar events.

    So are you up for this? More information about what's needed as well as registration forms can be found here http://www.distanceriders.org.nz/the...land-1600.html

    The closing date for entries is fast approaching -- 5:00pm on Friday 25 September.

    First-timers are most welcome -- every distance rider has been a first-timer. Round up some like-minded mates, get registered and start some conditioning rides -- particularly at night.

    Distance riders are a friendly bunch of folk who love to spin yarns of their past epic adventures. Start working on distance riding adventures of your own!

    The event itself isn't competitive other than completing distance within the prescribed 24 hours. It isn't a race. It's about you, your ride and the route.

    We only ride on sealed roads, apart from patches of road works. Pillions aren't allowed. Bikes have to pass rigorous pre-start scrutineering, so if you're thinking about riding, you'll need to get that done by our team at Turangi on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.

    This event is run BY distance riders FOR distance riders. It's all about the event. It's not a money-making venture -- the fees are intended to cover the event's costs. Last year's surplus was refunded to participating riders.

    Tempted?

    Get your registration form completed and we'll look forward to meeting you at Turangi in October!

      Two weeks to go until registrations close for this year's North Island 1,600! You won't want to miss this one. It's choicer than a choice thing. "Corners, corners, corners!"

      I'm emigrating from UK to Auckland at the end of July, I'm hoping my bike will arrive some time in September, so I'm hoping to have a go at this if you are running one this year? Any plans?

      Never mind, I found it on their website :-)
