    Optimistic sellers

    Thread Starter: Rcktfsh

    This trader must be pretty hard to outdo as far as optimism goes. Bike has been on the market for a year now, wonder when the penny will drop he''s dreaming at that price. You'd have thought after a year he might have got round to the little bit of tlc required to get running. ...

    Sidecar Racing

    Thread Starter: Fast Eddie

    Thought I'd start a thread for the sidecar scene - mainly in the South Island since thats where I am (and the North Islanders seem to have a few more people in it) But anyones included of course! We race whenever the bikes do if you haven't seen us or haven't come out to the track for a watch or...

    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...

    Race chassis

    Thread Starter: cotswold

    I just thought I would post these pictures of a couple of bikes I raced back when I was faster. The Waddon chassis was very basic but worked very well and I think would make a fantastic bucket frame. It was light and the bike handled well, the one I had was bought from Ian Young who had finished...

    Leh/Ladakh motorcycyle trip.

    Thread Starter: Katman

    Apparently, about a year ago there was an article written in the Kiwirider magazine reviewing a motorcycling trip done in the Ladakh area of India. Having just completed the same trip, run by the same operator, I'm keen to read the article. Can anyone please point me to which issue I need to...

    Thread Starter: Voltaire

    I took my Sons Hyosung 650 in for a WOF as he's overseas and its taking up valuable classic bike space.

  • Picture Of The Week/Year

    Bike Picture of the Week/Year

    I have just added a Picture of the Week/Year to the site.

    You can submit up to 3 pictures at anytime from one of your public albums. The submit link is on the view picture page. You also need to make albums viewable by Everyone or Registered Members in your Profile Privacy.

    You must have taken the picture yourself, or have permission from the image owner.
    All images must be motorcycle related in some way.


    View/remove your currently submitted pictures from the Community -> My Albums link.

    The POTW page shows all pictures submitted. From there you can pick your 1st (3 points), 2nd (2 points) and 3rd (1 point) favorite pictures. You can change your vote/s at anytime.

    If you delete your submitted picture from your album, your entry into the POTW/Y will be removed, even if you have won POTW.

    At the end of the week, the picture with the most points, then total votes, then submitted earliest, will be posted on the homepage as that weeks winner.

    At the end of the year, all the week winners can be voted for The Picture Of The Year.

    I am going to look into getting sponsorship for the POTW, so we can offer a prize to the winner of The Picture Of The Year.

      Not gonna show that. Also no user info shown for each image. Only thing that should influence the vote is the image itself.

      Also your vote/s stay after POTW winner to chosen so they're carried forward for the next weeks vote. Only the winners image and votes are removed.

      Might like to show when voting closes. Possibly show how many times a particular pic has been entered and how many times each pic has won?? Might be some other useful stats as well.

      Voting never closes. End of Sunday a cron job picks the winner and removes the winning image and its votes from the POTW voting, then posts the winning image on the homepage. I'll create a page of all the POTW winners soon. Also need to sort the POTY code, but got time for that.
