(just for track days and the odd club races)...

    New bike recommendation

    Thread Starter: Jeeper

    Thinking about changing my bike. Bought the BMW G310GS about 3 years ago purely for commuting as it was really comfortable for my size. COVID took care of the commuting problem (mostly work from home now). What I was looking at now is something that can actually do some out of city travelling...

    6'2" 105kg.(but losing weight rapidly at the moment) Have around 10k to spend. Currently riding a ZXR250, which is obviously not the best for me, given the age and mileage. I like the riding position, maybe something a fraction less crouched. My wife is quitting work soon to have a baby, so...

    Auckland Congestion Charges

    Thread Starter: rastuscat

    Go on, do something. Submissions are being sought on congestion charges in Auckland City. Motorcycle use decreases congestion. Easy. So go on there and make your views known. Submissions that don't have obscene language or personal attacks carry more weight, so try to be civil.

    Does anyone find the Pakuranga Highway - Ti Rakau intersection extremely slippery? I was in the rain yesterday, behind a car at the traffic lights turning right on the Pakuranga Hwy. When it turned green I followed the car and my back wheel just started spinning and I almost ended up across the...

    KTM 750 Range to Debut Soon

    Thread Starter: KevinD

    Made in China for a global market, KTMís new 750 will plug a midrange hole. I wonder if these will come to NZ ? If the pricing were keen it'd sell OK I think. https://www.cycleworld.com/story/bikes/ktm-750-range-to-debut-soon/

    2. Protests

    Christchurch protest ride
    Saturday Dec 5th

    Register your attendance here.


    Alright folks here it is, December the 5th there will be a protest ride starting from Izone Drive in Rolleston (there will be marshals to direct you to the start point) meeting from 10.30am.

    The reason we are starting in Rolleston is that hopefully the Timaru and Ashburton riders will be attending.
    We will be leaving around 12.00pm heading down Main South Rd, left into Main South Rd from the Sockburn roundabout, Riccarton Rd, Hagley Ave, Oxford Tce, Lichfield St then left into Manchester st, then left into cashel st and finishing in the city mall. There we will be met by a few MPs and others.

    It is time to step up the protest and make some noise, yes traffic will be held up but we have to start making ourselves heard and seen, we have done the quiet protest now it is time to show the Christchurch public we are not happy.

    I am also thinking of getting the learner riders and the scooters up front doing about 70kmh. This will still be legal as the police still won't help out but I am trying to get a meeting with the area commander for transport and say help out. I have heard there are some bikes with hazard lights if there is I need one to go right up front with hazards on, it would have to be a fairly experienced rider, if that is you can you PM me please so we can touch base and finalise it.

    I have e-mailed all the clubs I can think of I will be heading to some bike shops to hand out up posters and have got in touch with some contacts in the media, so what I am hoping and expecting is that we can do better then the last rally's as far as numbers is concerned. If you have t-shirts and banners then bring them and wear them, signs on your bike wouldn't be a bad thing either. If anybody is keen we should head to the Wheatsheaf for a get together after the rally.
