    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda. It will be interesting to see how he goes in the first tests later today as he hasn't really set the other classes alight like his older brother...

    Thread Starter: banditeer7

    Hi All, Just looking for some advice on where to take my bike. Cyclespot seems like the main KTM dealer but I've had some issues with servicing from there. Just wondering if there is such a thing as a competent bike mechanic in Auckland who would take good care of my beast for it's 30,000km...

  • 1KC - 1,000km Cruise

    This event is coming to you from The NZ Distance Riders and is a rebranded and expanded event from what was the C1KC (Capital 1,000Km Cruise). We have a website here: http://www.distanceriders.org.nz/ and Facebook page: NZ Distance Riders.

    We are now introducing a northern event out of Hamilton on the same day and that has freed us up to set routes that are more focused on the enjoying the roads on offer in either the Upper Middle or Lower Nth Island, so this year, like all good hobbits from Middle Earth, we are venturing back into the east. (More on that in the thread below)

    The 1KC is an informal ride for all riders from hardened endurance riding veterans to those barely off restricted. For North Islanders that thought the North Island 1600 might be fun but want something a bit easier first, or the Iron Butts that just want a decent daylight ride....and it's all for a good cause, Muscular Dystrophy.

    We try to choose flowy routes that are a blend of easy riding with some of our favourite wee fangs. This year's offerings should provide another pleasant wee pootle, hopefully with maybe a couple of new roads to some.

    The $20 is required at time of registration please and we have to order the badges, so these canít be guaranteed for entries received after 20/10/14. Account details will be supplied on application.

    As per previous years, Ride Instructions and a Briefing will be emailed the week before the event.


    PS: The money raised for the MDA goes towards a fund that is used to buy presents for children with muscular dystrophy. Many thanks to all those riders that have tried the ride, and if you donít want to ride, feel free to donate anyway.

      I got in at 17:04 according to my GPS. It appears to think daylight savings is not here at present. I also lost the GPS signal about 40 times at various points. Software updated when I got home but no change. I think there was a satellite update and it may have upset my Garmin NAV V as I see someone else also had the same issue in Australia. Anyway it was a great ride and the road around the coast was in excellent condition. Could have done it in one fuel stop by pushing it but decided to do 3 stops for comfort. GPS apart from the time and losing signal had me finishing 17:56 when I left and arrive 18:04 so it is accurate as usual in that respect.

      I Hyper-Lapsed the whole ride on my Go Pro so will upload that to youtube after a bit of editing. Useless GoPro still have not fixed their Quik software and the time shows UTC time only.

      Thanks for another great ride and nice the rain held off (at least on the ride. It hammered down on the way up).
