    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    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. ...

    Summer running - 2000 Ducati ST2

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    I've gone ahead and bought my second Ducati. Summertime. Time to ride again, getting a bike for the season while the 900SS is laid up with major engine rebuild work. It can be a bit of a saga, the fun and games involved in attempting to secure a reasonably reliable ride in the sub-$7K...

    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...

    1973 Suzuki TM250 replica

    Thread Starter: rudolph

    I have acquired a 1973 Suzuki TS250 savage in a condition that is not worth restoring, engine looks like it has never been apart, and the thing isn't flogged out in every joint on the frame, but it looks like it has been in a dusty old barn. Someone has offered me $150 for a pile of stuff I have...

    '98 Suzuki FX 650 Freewind.

    Thread Starter: Bonez

    What would one pay for a '98 Suzuki FX650 Freewind that is in general good shape with a few minor scrapes on the right front cowling with say for argument sake 60,000s up. Rego/wof up top scratch and good multi purpose tyres fitted. How easy are they to get parts for? Say a center stand for...

    Yamaha RZ/Banshee build

    Thread Starter: el chupacabra

    Hello, long story short after years of owning RGV250s and having a couple of seizures chasing performance i decided to hack up my frame and fit a set of banshee cases i got from the states knowing that they had more potential for a lightweight race bike. (just for track days and the odd club races)...

    Norton closed down.

    Thread Starter: Laava

    Seems that all the poor business practices have paid out very badly and the various companies that made up Norton have all gone to the wall. A lot of people who paid deposits will get nothing back it would seem... https://www.bbc.com/news/business-51303905

  • 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?
