We race whenever the bikes do if you haven't seen us or haven't come out to the track for a watch or...

    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. ...

    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...

    Taking a power downgrade?

    Thread Starter: Mike.Gayner

    I recently sold my Speed Triple solely because I want to try something totally different. Problem is I'm worried about taking a big downgrade in power, and whether I'll really regret this decision. I'm looking at getting onto something significantly lighter, like a Duke 690 or a supermoto like the...

    Sourcing electric bikes

    Thread Starter: gaddman

    Anybody on here found a place that sells or can import an electric bike? Cycletreads in Auckland had the Zero a few years ago, which looks pretty sweet. There's also a nice Italian one - Energica. Keen to hear if anybody has tried bringing one in and how much it ends up costing.

  • 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?
