    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

    A few of us have these systems now. I thought it might be useful to have a separate thread to swap information. I'm just starting with mine on a 4 stroke twin that will eventually be turbo or supercharged, Rob has his 2 stroke single with triple injectors coming along, and Sketchy with his...

    Engine Size Questions

    Thread Starter: CHOPPA

    Could I start with a 125 water cooled 2 stroke and sleeve it down to 100cc so it was legal? Could I take a 300cc twin cylinder 5 stroke and turn it into a single 150cc cylinder so it would be legal?

    Making a AG100 go crazy fast

    Thread Starter: honda_power

    Carver is going to get into the world of motocross with his brand new ride - a late 80's ag100. Basically we want it to go faster. What cheap/free mods could be done to give it more balls, bearing in mind aftermarket parts (obviously) dont exist for this model.

    Pete's TF125 build

    Thread Starter: F5 Dave

    Well here's just a quick build to try and produce something raceable from something that looked pretty but was not. Pete saw the pics of the Orange NSR on Tardme and bought in faith. When it arrived from Auckland clearly all was not well. In no order, the brakes were useless, the crazy big...

  • 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?

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