    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...

    Brakes Locking Up

    Thread Starter: rastuscat

    Apparently brakes lock up on their own. Or at least according to the person who wrote this complaint to the local council. "There is a very dangerous amount of gravel build up on a few of the intersections on this road, I've nearly come off my motorcycle due to the brakes locking up on it. It's...

    Checking out the trademe listings, as you do, and there seems to a lot of old bikes from the 70's mostly that people are trying to and in some cases selling for pretty ridiculous prices.

      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!!
