    South Auckland Thursday Night Ride

    Thread Starter: The_Dover

    Alright then you homo's in order to save a 100km round trip to the Albany Pub and avoid the attention of the filth I'm organising a South Auckland Thursday Night Ride. Organising being a loose description. I have a route in mind, sadly I don't know where the pubs are around south yet but I will...

    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...

    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...

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/123849914/its-not-the-tourists-road-death-toll-virtually-unchanged-from-2019-despite-border-closures I have suspected this all along. Kiwi drivers are not as competent as they believe they are. In fact, my most recent road trip also supports the notion. In some...

    Suzuki GT750 EFI Special

    Thread Starter: Kettlekev

    I am new to the forum so bear with me on posting issues. Over two years ago, having just restored an old GT750, I decided it might be fun to take one of those bikes and push the design as far as I could. Two years down the line and pending paint and final EFI work I have this..... I...

    Electrics cut out completely while riding - likely causes?

    Thread Starter: nerrrd

    So on my way home today was happily riding along, everything normal, when the bike cut out altogether and I had to coast to the side of the road. The bike was completely dead, no dash lights, nothing. No response to turning the ignition key, nothing from the starter. I checked the battery...

  • Suspension set up day/sausage sizzle with Shaun Harris 17/4/2010

    COME ENJOY A BARBY AND FREE SUSPENSION SETUP ADVICE AND WITH SHAUN HARRIS

    HERES THE DEAL
    come down to my place from 10.30 am on--- Ill have a couple of bags of sausages to cook up on the barby and tea n coffee for those that want a hot drink.You guys n gals can sit around and talk shit
    MEANWHILE
    SHAUN HARRIS will be in my gargre with his measuring tools ready to advise you on ways to improve your suspension from just simple adjustments through to -well thats up to you-- BUT the skys the limit.
    Guys n gals this is a rare opportunity to meet a man you KNOW might just have a couple of clues about suspension Just shutting up and listening to what he says will be an education in itself let alone the chance to get your bike transformed from an evil brute back into the bike you love.

    Shaun will measure up the sag settings on your bike, Shaun will then give you an educated opinion of what work you might need and what you may need or want doing, to improve your ride, and make it safer to ride.
    The idea is for you to come to my car/bike yard and talk with Shaun face to face, so You can work out any work different or related to a great offer he has going and as a way for determining if you need or want any work to be done, and to confirm bookings for any work in the future .
    Shaun will be based in the main workshop in the yard . Entry will be by the main back door

    As an aside when you get your bike back there is an IDEAL test ride route of 15km that WILL tell you if the bike is transformed--AND its just down the road.
    Please NOTE
    Car/Trailer parking is OVER THE ROAD in the carpark.
    BIKE PARKING is round the back of the workshop
    -Sorry I just dont have room for a bunch of cars/trailers/vans actually in the yard.
    .

    I'll fire up the ol barby in the arvo for anyone that wants to have a Sausage or two and just generally talk some shit .

    MILLARS CAR CENTRE
    25 CORBAN AVENUE
    HENDERSON
    SATURDAY 17TH APRIL 2010
    From 10 am till Shaun goes home

      to any one that is thinking of going to this day do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      My bike handled not to well when I got it read heaps of suspnsion books had a few people look at it and not much difference.
      5 mins talking to Shaun about what the bike was doing and another 5 with his trusty measuring tape. I then took the bike for a ride and the difference was night and day the bike now handles really well on the track and road.
      Take the time to go this will be one of the best investments you can do for your riding.

      Oh I figured out instead of buying upgrades to make the bike go faster losing 5 kg on the rider has the same effect and is a lot cheaper!

      I don't want to change anything on my bike, but would be keen to come over and socialise. I'll have my 5 and 7 year old with me, so probably wont stay too long.

      When is the BBQ starting, and what can we bring along to help?
