    Optimistic sellers

    South Auckland Thursday Night Ride

    Different/unusual chassis

    Thread Starter: Mental Trousers

    There's a thread on different/unusual engines so I thought I'd start one on different chassis. Ray Van Steenwyk has come up with a different take on hub centre steering. All of the suspension is moved behind the wheel (in the attachment it's the red bits) while the triangle that holds the...

    Surviving bad crashes

    Thread Starter: riffer

    I don't post on here as often as I used to. The rise of social media has a lot to do with that, but also I've been a bit away from motorcycling. Two years ago today I slammed into the side of a Nissan Navara at a speed between 60 and 80 km/h when its driver pulled out of a driveway into the path...

    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...

      my first big ride and I was nervous!!!!! I got to meet some fellow KBers - Nutbar, LucyLoo, Mom and Maha of course. Plus some whose names I forgot - dammit I suck at remembering names! Who is the German MAG-NZ guy? I thumped him for dissing Hondas. Funny how a few people figured out who I was
      Was an awesome day with lots of money raised - yay to WIMA - we rock!!
