    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save jellywrestler doing it. So Alex Marquez is now confirmed as Marc's team mate at Repsol Honda. It will be interesting to see how he goes in the first tests later today as he hasn't really set the other classes alight like his older brother...

    BMW 9Cento (concept) Build it please!

    Thread Starter: MD

    I like this. Will it make the production line? I hope. Coming from an early adopter of the F800S when it came out I would be tempted by this. The F800 lacked power for me, maybe another 100c will be enough to enjoy. Unlike most concepts that are usually all style and won't work in the real...

    Northern Coromandel Loop - don't bother!

    Thread Starter: Blackbird

    Did the full Loop on Sunday and it wasn't too bad even with the patching. Today, they're resurfacing big time on the Thames - Coromandel stretch. There's major resurfacing from Wilson's Bay to Manaia with tar-coated gravel freshly laid today. I had to do a trip to Thames and back to Coro this...

    Anyone use one of these? I absolutely love the look of them and they are not badly priced. But nervous to buy something online without some local feedback? https://www.ruroc.com/en_row/berserker

    Ducati Hypermotard 950 SP

    Thread Starter: SNOman

    Hi all I'm up for a new bike, one which I intend to keep for a while. Currently have an XSR900 but am a twin man at heart, the last one being a Firestorm. I'm tossing up between 2 very different bikes, for different reasons, the hypermotard being one of them. Never had a Ducati before but...

    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.
