    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. ...

    Winter Layup - 1995 Ducati 900 Supersport

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    Time for major work, unfortunately. Frame's cracked :( Motor is making oil disappear and power isn't what it used to be either, according to seat of pants dyno. Time for the winter layup, get in, strip it, sort out various issues that have been waiting for a while. Step 1: take it to bits.

    New Leather jacket, brands?

    Thread Starter: tigertim20

    Ive realised I really need to replace the leather jacket that Ive had for about 7.5 years. It was a Qmoto jacket, which, overall, was OK. comfortable, more or less did its job, and was reasonably priced. Downsides were things like poor single lines of stitching that started giving way a year...

    Carl Cox @ Hampton Downs

    *copy and paste from the hamptondowns.com news letter

    This Sunday, 16th January 2011 - The Carl Cox Revolution Tour is coming to Hampton Downs. The Hampton Downs Ride Day on Sunday the 16th of January will be hosting International DJ legend, Carl Cox and some of his friends, as the finishing point of their motorcycle tour around New Zealand.



    Carl has taken a fleet of Italian motorcycles around the country and they are finishing off by taking them around the race track! During that tour, Carl has headlined at Rhythm and Vines in Gisborne over New Years. Carl plays to sold out venues around the world but he is also a very keen biker with a collection of bikes that most of us could only dream about, and a group of friends to match.
    Carl and his mates will be enjoying the day riding at Hampton Downs and while he is there we will be having a bit of a party. DJs will be playing the tunes while you enjoy the day with some food and drinks.

    The party will start at 12.00 mid day and go until 8PM
    Cover charge is $5 per adult with kids under 14 free (participants of the ride day are also free)
    So bring along the family and friends and enjoy an afternoon of fine music and fine people.
