    Hello, long story short after years of owning RGV250s and having a couple of seizures chasing performance i decided to hack up my frame and fit a set of banshee cases i got from the states knowing that they had more potential for a lightweight race bike. (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.

    Charity Ride for Aria.

    Your $20.00 per person attending the ride, will give Aria more much needed funds. It will also get you in a draw for a Pukekohe Track Day Experience. as well as lunch in The Beer Garden at the Bay View Hotel in Kaiaua.

    Sunday 20th Feb 2011

    Gathering at Compass Point venues across Auckland, at 10.30am for an 11.00am ride off down the motorways to DPC in Drury, approximate arrival time 12 O'clock.

    Hooten Park Reserve - Othea Valley Road for the Northerners;
    Shell Westgate for the West;
    Shell Tirakau Drive for the East;
    Last but not least The Autobahn Cafe BP Service Centre Southern Motorway Papakura for the Souths (go the South).

    Leave DPC by 12.30 after handing over our collected money for Aria. Then on to the Bay View Hotel in Kaiaua for our beer garden lunch and a gathering of the MAG-NZ faithful and new members.

    This is not a protest ride in any way shape or form, it is an opportunity to repay a kindness and a reason for gathering as many MAG-NZ members and newbies from the regions as we can together for some simple fun and recreation.

    Yes we know this event is on the same day as the Paeroa Street races, there are already 12-15 riders heading up from Hamilton, there could well be a lot more coming from there, as well as confirmed numbers from all over the Auckland area.

    This is for a little girl and her family, and for us as riders to simply get out and enjoy each other's company, any level of skills will be accommodated - no racing, no showing off, just pure simple riding pleasure.
