    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. ...

    Random thoughts on luggage

    Thread Starter: pritch

    A recent question on KB has caused me to reflect on the various forms of luggage I’ve used with bikes. If you’ve got any experience or thoughts on the topic feel free to add to this. On my Brit bikes I just used a crude back pack. It did most of what I needed. Just as well I didn’t need much....

    People are a bit odd sometimes

    Thread Starter: Navy Boy

    Hi Fellow KBers Perhaps this belongs in the 'Optimistic sellers' thread, I'm not sure. :confused: I've been on the hunt for another bike to add to the stable recently. I fancied something a bit sporty to have some fun with and so have been keeping an eye on Trademe for something suitable. ...

    First bike: Yamaha MT 03 vs Yamaha R3

    Thread Starter: flaviosa

    hey guys, I know its a matter of preference but - has any one of you ridden both bikes? Which you would you pick for your first bike? I commute +/- 40km/day, 75% city road 25% will be motorway. I won't be traveling long distances with it (not often anyway).

    The KTM 790 Duke after 2 years

    Thread Starter: Blackbird

    It’s been two years today since I picked up the Duke 790 from Boyds in Hamilton. There was a lot of thought before committing to purchase, mainly because KTM has had a spotty reputation for reliability on various models. I wanted something light as a nod to short legs and being in my early 70’s,...

    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.
