If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. #2 - Take the tag to a new location (location...

    450 triple race bikes

    Thread Starter: sharp2183

    Im tentatively thinking of trying to pick up a 450 triple race bike for next season. Do these come up for sale very often? And for anyone who has built them, what the cost to do a quality job (with a good tune)?

    Thread Starter: mcshaz

    After 11 years off the bike I am really keen to get back riding (along with half the world looking at the worldwide shortage of new bikes and rise in second hand prices). Being 47 I am in a bloody high risk category. I am full of screws (over 2 dozen) and plates (4) as it is from various...

  • Auckland MAG-NZ Charity Ride for Aria - Sunday 20th February 2011

    Charity Ride for Aria.

    Your $20.00 per person attending the ride, will give Aria more much needed funds. It will also get you in a draw for a Pukekohe Track Day Experience. as well as lunch in The Beer Garden at the Bay View Hotel in Kaiaua.

    Sunday 20th Feb 2011

    Gathering at Compass Point venues across Auckland, at 10.30am for an 11.00am ride off down the motorways to DPC in Drury, approximate arrival time 12 O'clock.

    Hooten Park Reserve - Othea Valley Road for the Northerners;
    Shell Westgate for the West;
    Shell Tirakau Drive for the East;
    Last but not least The Autobahn Cafe BP Service Centre Southern Motorway Papakura for the Souths (go the South).

    Leave DPC by 12.30 after handing over our collected money for Aria. Then on to the Bay View Hotel in Kaiaua for our beer garden lunch and a gathering of the MAG-NZ faithful and new members.

    This is not a protest ride in any way shape or form, it is an opportunity to repay a kindness and a reason for gathering as many MAG-NZ members and newbies from the regions as we can together for some simple fun and recreation.

    Yes we know this event is on the same day as the Paeroa Street races, there are already 12-15 riders heading up from Hamilton, there could well be a lot more coming from there, as well as confirmed numbers from all over the Auckland area.

    This is for a little girl and her family, and for us as riders to simply get out and enjoy each other's company, any level of skills will be accommodated - no racing, no showing off, just pure simple riding pleasure.

    Go here for further details and to sign on as a rider/contributor:

      What a fantastic cause. Aria's family attended our church and they have had an enormously hard row to hoe in Aria's short life. If you would like to read more about her condition and the family's situation you can visit her website at aria.org.nz Her parents, Hamish and Anita, keep a running blog for those who support and are interested in her progress.

      Ripper Roo92 said he'd be coming with me. Balu would love to have come but the meds he's on for his first ever attack of kidney stone means he's not really fit for riding at the mo. See you at the Drury Autobahn!
