    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...

    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...

    Ryco oil filters

    Thread Starter: Southern scratcher

    Anyone heard of any issues regarding use of Ryco oil filters in bike engines? A guy in Aussie with damage to his engine heads was told by his dealer that Kawasaki wouldn't support his warranty because the damage was due to oil starvation due to lower oil pressure from the aftermarket Ryco Z436 oil...

    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...

  • 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?
