    don't think they've ever run a pro twins class at wanganui though??? they do have something called chairs classic and F1 which i find amusing and often wonder why no-one has jumped up and down about that description.

    It's not my cup of tea in the slightest. I doubt I'll ever even watch a single lap of it.
    one part of me is itching to see this after watching the 300cc class at eastern creek at the weekend and no matter how slow it might be it's going to be well matched i reckon, the other part is if i do commentate any of the races is the nightmare in identifying them.
    anyone remember the harvey donaldson 883 class and how good the racing was in that with ant young robert holden bruce anstey pete mcdonald and others???

    Despite the choice of machinery (this is the bucket tread - so expect a bucket racers view on things); it is good to see that one of the major (ok the largest player) in the NZ motorcycling & racing environment looking forward and targeting the next generation. I do wish them the best of luck and maybe we will see better machines in the future... hopefully machines that may actually be suitable for future bucket racers (all be it requiring engine work to be competitive)...
    i'm sure suzuki new zealand did their homework on these, to me i wonder why they didn't pick a model the same as some of the boat people race overseas, imagine a container load of them at the tracks mixing it with our riders, there'll be a reason.
    they sent a bike to switzerland to get the brakes system certified for nz roads and building thirty bikes with spares is a fair bite of commitment too. at least if it doesn't work there'll be a few more bucket racers on the market in a while

    jeez, remember the stink when they had feet forward sidecars, or chairs as they're known in wanganui and you could nearly fit an mnz legal number plate on the front mudguard/?

    I'm all about this. Especially after my idea of running an aquila in the hyosung cup was shattered.

    If we raced two up do you think they would double lap score us?

    Nobody would be crazy enough to put two transponders on one bike would they?

    I think that was the day I realised MNZ don't have a sense of humour.
