    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Fast Eddie

    Thought I'd start a thread for the sidecar scene - mainly in the South Island since thats where I am (and the North Islanders seem to have a few more people in it) But anyones included of course! We race whenever the bikes do if you haven't seen us or haven't come out to the track for a watch or...

    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    Tag o rama!

    Thread Starter: Owl

    Rules are easy...and borrowed from Waikato! #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. #2 - Take the tag to a new location (location...

    Race chassis

    Thread Starter: cotswold

    I just thought I would post these pictures of a couple of bikes I raced back when I was faster. The Waddon chassis was very basic but worked very well and I think would make a fantastic bucket frame. It was light and the bike handled well, the one I had was bought from Ian Young who had finished...

    Honda RC51 - are there many of these around?

    Thread Starter: Mike.Gayner

    I'm considering a Honda RC51 as my next bike just for something a bit different. Are there many of these around? Last time I looked a few years ago there was always two or three listed but can't see anything right now. What kind of money do they fetch for a decent example? Cheers.

    Improved tyre wear after Ride Forever course

    Thread Starter: SaferRides

    The main thing I got out of the Ride Forever course last year was improving my road positioning while cornering. Not only did that help me to corner better but I've noticed about a 20% improvement in tyre life. I expect that's because I'm carrying more corner speed and not on the brakes and...

    Q: Bevelhead Ducati. How to free-up a binding clutch?

    Thread Starter: jim.cox

    Ok, I'll be the first to admit it: The MHR does not get enough riding. Aside from a WoF and new a front tyre there isn't actually much holding it back. Except the clutch - which is binding (again). I've pulled it apart before and found parts of it are so polished that with the 50 weight...

  • AMCC Advanced Rider Training day for Christmas!!! 19th of December

    The 2015/16
    Advanced Rider Training Season continues with a great way to start the Christmas Period


    DATES


    Just under a month away the second ART day for the season will be on and it will make a fantastic way to start the season. We are all so looking forward to getting this next round off the ground. The first round of this season was a great day. Started with a misty morning but grew into a lovely day with a warm track.

    Now with summer really starting to warm up it should be a great way to roll into the Christmas period and a new season of riding in the sun.

    Be in and be quick there are only two more rounds this season!!!!


    P.S. feel free to yell if you need to know anything or need advice on what to wear or bring.

      Great day everyone

      Many thanks to all the instructors and marshalls who gave up their time to make this happen.

      Less oil on the track would be nice next time

      Where there any photographers at the track?

      I don't recall seeing any, although usually someone is there taking photos?
