    Optimistic sellers

    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. ...

    That game that all the cool people are playing. Rules are easy... #1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose. #2 - Take the tag to...

    Summer running - 2000 Ducati ST2

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    I've gone ahead and bought my second Ducati. Summertime. Time to ride again, getting a bike for the season while the 900SS is laid up with major engine rebuild work. It can be a bit of a saga, the fun and games involved in attempting to secure a reasonably reliable ride in the sub-$7K...

    Yamaha RZ/Banshee build

    Thread Starter: el chupacabra

    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)...

    CBR TF125 Bucket Racer

    Thread Starter: anglia4

    Hi all, I've been working on this little project for quite a while now. I had been looking for something as a bit of a bucket racer project for a while when my brother ended up with an MC19 CBR250 that he was parting out. So I snapped up the rolling frame and then managed to stumble across a...

    We're not happy. You're gouging money from bikers. Where's it going ?

    Just what are we getting for our massively increased levies?

    We've been told that a bunch of grumpy bikers are planning to turn out to demand some answers : to remind Mr Smith that we're not happy. And that we're watching him.

    And to show him exactly what he can do with his A.C.C.

    When ? Sunday 27th June.

    Where . Central Auckland. Can't tell you exactly where just yet. because if we do, we might be able to have it there. And we're having it there, permissions or not.

    We'll update you with exact location , and game plan nearer the day. Sufficiently nearer that it's too late for TPTB to stop it.

    And some extra grumpy people may ride on to other places afterward. Not that we know anything about that. . (less than 20km, easy riding, and very legal., No speed limits will be brioken. Quite the reverse. )

    Be aware that getting into the location may be difficult for trikes or sidecars . Anyone planning on bringing one, PM me.

    Be aware also that we may probably be breaking some rules of some sort.. This meeting may not be totally respectfull. Or polite. So anyone that has major issues with keeping squeaky clean and rule compliant may want to flag this one.

    Some folk may want tp wear a mask. or balaclava. Or skull mask . We're encouraging masks and balaclavas. After all, it'll probably be cold.

    Probably be wet too. So if you're a wimp, you probably want to flag this one.

    Otherwise, if you're not afraid of getting wet, and don't like bending over and taking it (there's a hint there for you) , be there. Disrespectfully, and noisily.

    Central Auckland. Somewhere. 27th June 11am.

    Anyone that can lead a group from the outskirts, (West gate, Autobahn, Dairy Flat ? ,) please post up , so groups can get organised.

    2. ACC Levy News

    BRONZ (Auckland) held its first meeting of 2010 last night, and confirmed its position regarding ACC levies .

    BRONZ has outstanding and ongoing concerns about :

    • The size of the levy (for large bikes in particular), and the probability of large increases next time round.
    • Separate cc classifications
    • The problem of multi vehicle ownership


    BRONZ confirmed its three objectives

    Abolition of the separate motorcycle classification
    Abolition of cc distinction
    Abolition of statutory full funding requirement

    (achieving no 1 would automatically eliminate no 2 , but they were both kept because no 2 may be a stepping stone to no 1)

    BRONZ also confirmed its opinion that a fairer method of collection should be established.

    BRONZ considered specific actions for Q1 2010.

    No specific BRONZ organised protest action is planned for Q1, but BRONZ will continue to endorse protests that meet BRONZ criteria (legal, not having disruption as the primary reason, though recognising that protest usually entails some disruption to someone)

    BRONZ will undertake a program of education and persuasion targeted at the public and at decision makers and influencers, focused on the objectives above. These targets include National and Labour MPs, media, and the general and motorcycling public

    BRONZ will review specific protest action (ie megaphones, bikes on the road) as ACC actions or events provide a 'hook' to centre protest action on - noting that the next such event is likely to be the release of the report of the ACC Stocktake Group, forecast for March

    BRONZ also noted the invidious position of the AA as regards motorcycles and resolved to communicate concerns to the AA.
