    Thread Starter: FROSTY

    after a little while without a bike we are finally back riding. Nothing spectacular or even exciting but both bikes are putting huge grins on our faces. The PC 800 has the added bonus of looking just enough like a cop bike for the cage drivers to notice us.-And yep Pic one was just posed/....

    Tiger 100

    Thread Starter: Voltaire

    Finally got my 1953 Tiger 100 purchased on a whim a year ago on TM on the road. Lesson there is don't buy a bike that " needs re registering" unless it was imported pre 1999 as you need to jump thru more hoops to get it re vinned. Fortunately I'm a member of the VCC so it was easier. Turns out...

    Garry Albrett Cliffhanger Promotions RIP


    It is with much regret that I must inform that Garry Albrett of Carterton has passed away.

    Garry suffered a heart attack this morning and did not regain consciousness.

    Garry was well known as the chairman of Cliffhanger Promotions. He and his wife Dina were the driving force behind the triannual motorcycle sprints and cliffhanger hillclimb. They both worked tirelessly on these events and Garry will be sorely missed.

    Garry's funeral will be held on Wednesday 8 July 2009, 11.00am ( arrive there at least 10.45am) at the Anglican Church, corner of High Street and Richmond Road, Carterton. (southern end of shopping centre)

    To all that knew Garry, helped with the Cliffhanger and sprints, or competed at them, it would be appreciated if as many as possible could attend on their bikes to give Garry a worthy send off.

    For those leaving from the Hutt side of the hill, I suggest meeting at Caltex Rimutaka at about 9.30am to leave at 9.45am.
