    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. ...

    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    Customs duty on bike gear?

    Thread Starter: Sedition

    Hi all, looking to see if anyone knows the specifics on classifying bike gear for import fees so I don't get shafted buying riding gear outside NZ. WhatIsMyDuty doesn't have a very comprehensive list. On this page there are listings for 'Helmet (Crash)', and 'Motorcycle Tyres' (both 0% duty rate)....

    Kickstart Roadside 2019 - Canterbury MC Events

    Thread Starter: rastuscat

    Overtaking an emergency vehicle with flashing lights on.

    Thread Starter: SaferRides

    I was riding down the Thames coast yesterday and pulled over to let a fire engine with its lights on pass. Then I overtook the cars I'd been following and caught up to the fire engine. I expect overtaking it would have been illegal?

    RZ500 Crank rebuild

    Thread Starter: Froth

    Anyone recommend someone who can rebuild the cranks in my 500 in NZ? There are reputable places in the UK, but freight is prohibitive, It really has to be someone who knows what they are doing and get it right first time! Chris

    4 hour ride from Auckland CBD

    Thread Starter: Euro2018

    I've managed to convince a friend of mine to climb on the back of my ST1100 and go for a wee ride. I'm in Hamilton, friend is in Auckland CBD. Allowing for travel time to/from Auckland, I have time for about a 3-4 hour ride from Auckland to somewhere nice for lunch, then back again. Trip day...

    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.
