    MotoGP 2024

    Thread Starter: onearmedbandit

    With only 2 days until the new year, and just over 2 months until the season starts it's time for a new thread. Who's your money on? Will Bagnia do the triple? Will Marc return to former glory and bring us a season in which he dominates? Will Martin secure his dream to win a championship?...

    winter sun woe

    Thread Starter: Cosmik de Bris

    hi all, just back from a short ride but the sun at this time of year is truly awful. i think i may be a little bit more sensitive to this because of my 75 year old eyes that have had cataracts fixed and then both retinas detached (thank you sean). to cap it off i have to wear glasses since my 75th...

    Higher octane fuels in lower south island

    Thread Starter: Berries

    So I am dredging this old thread really but figured nobody would read it in that part of the forum - Race-fuel-in-the-S-I Just got me a bike where the manual recommends 98 octane. The three stations near me only go to 95 so it is a 30km round trip to Dunedin to fill up at one of the self serve...

    Thread Starter: jellywrestler

  • 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.
