    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

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...

    Do you wear ear plugs?

    Thread Starter: 1/32 man

    A mate showed me some he had custom made at an audiologist...said they were good but cost him $150. Are there cheaper but still effective options. After today’s ride of about 70mins I am contemplating using some. Any comments or opinions welcome.

    TF125 question

    Thread Starter: Gus25

    Is anyone running a tf125? Just interested in the oil pump system, is it better to bypass and run premix or run the engine as Suzuki intended?

    Is there such a thing as quiet helmets?

    Thread Starter: 1/32 man

    Having recently got back on a bike I needed to gear up as economically as I could. I bought a Bell qualifier helmet from TM $200 On recent rides the wind noise seems to have got worse and on inspection the left visor mount/clip/swivel doesnt seem right. After some pushing, cussing, jiggling...

    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.
