    MotoGP 2021

    Thread Starter: Autech

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save Merv doing it. Got a big shuffle in teams for this one boys, lets hope Ducati have finally cracked on to a good combination with Miller and Bags after so many years. I'm also hoping Aprilia will have fixed their engine gremlins from...

    Thread Starter: Bonez

    Got my '76 CB550 Super Sport back on the road after a 10 year park up. Had a few health issues and got rid of most of my70s/80s m/cand Connie has taken over most of the shed for her woodwork work shop. I did keep my CB550F and Dads R80 which my brother now has. The BMW wasn't really my thing....

    '98 Suzuki FX 650 Freewind.

    Thread Starter: Bonez

    What would one pay for a '98 Suzuki FX650 Freewind that is in general good shape with a few minor scrapes on the right front cowling with say for argument sake 60,000s up. Rego/wof up top scratch and good multi purpose tyres fitted. How easy are they to get parts for? Say a center stand for...

    1972/3 Honda SL125 x 2 rebuild

    Thread Starter: Laava

    So I have had this old SL125 in the shed for years and it used to run ok but I couldn't get the points cover screws out so when it needed a tune up, it just got left to sit. I dont name my bikes or give them a male or female status, but this bike was called Peanut. I can't remember why... Anyhow,...

    ??Tyres for old blokes

    Thread Starter: jim.cox

    Wye aye, Lads. It seems that choice for 80's bike tyres is getting ever thinner. I'm needing an 100/90r18 up front. Until now I've used Pirellis as they were factory stock - but apparently they are no longer making that size :( I may have found them on Michelin's list. - anybody know...

    Storing helment, jacket "on-bike"

    Thread Starter: absolutegator

    Kia ora, I have started using a bike as my only vehicle at the moment. I love most parts of it over a car. One of the major things I struggle with however is lugging around my jacket and helmet (and pants and boots if going on a longer trip). Makes everything pretty cumbersome. My bike has...

    Helmets compulsory for all the Cook Islands?

    Thread Starter: offroadx

    I am thinking of flying to the Cook Islands for a holiday once the borders open up again. :facepalm: We are planning to visit the outer islands. I know that helmets are compulsory on scooters in Rarotonga, but I am a bit confused if they are also compulsory on the outer islands. A lot of the media...

    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.
