    Hard core commuter turns Bike friendly Holiday Park lease owner (Kai Iwi Beach)

    Thread Starter: IronPawz

    250,000kms of commuting down Otaki to Wellington. Mostly on CBR1000RR's. Sold up moved to Kai Iwi Beach and took over the lease for the holiday park there.

    More Mikuni carb ID

    Thread Starter: whenu

    Hi all, have these two carbs, apparently off an early 70's Suzuki, the outlet manifold size is 28mm. Was going to use one on an Indian, but might change my mind yet. Got them with a whole lot of other T350R parts.

    Optimistic buyers: the Harley-Davidson Livewire

    Thread Starter: RDJ

    I had the opportunity to ride one of these (quite a few times, because it was a quiet Demo-Day :-) ) in 2019, in Vegas. I was working in Phoenix at the time, and took a weekend ride up there on my 2004 Trask-turbo'd V-rod. That was and is a quick bike, but the LiveWire completely blew it away...

    Bike shipping. NZ to USA then back again.

    Thread Starter: Euro2018

    I'm doing a bike trip in USA, April/May 2021. One of the options I'm considering is shipping one of my bikes to Los Angeles and either sell it there or bring it back. It's a Honda ST1100, so barely a $3000 bike. Could probably fetch $1500 in US. Benefits are that I know the bike is bombproof...

      Not entirely, but as we'd arrived at the track with a bike that wouldn't even start and in the end started and completed 3 races I shouldn't complain
