    Surviving bad crashes

    Thread Starter: riffer

Two years ago today I slammed into the side of a Nissan Navara at a speed between 60 and 80 km/h when its driver pulled out of a driveway into the path...

    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.
