    KLR Ramblers Ride – March (25/03/2017)

    This is going to be something different this time.
    The first KLR Ramblers Rally!
    This is not a race, but a friendly ride and meet-up.
    All bikes are welcome as usual, not just KLRs.
    Read all the details on the KLR Ramblers blog.

    Hi Guys,
    I’m planning to have an Auckland ride for the more unexperienced owners of big bikes, 800CC and above. We will be helping each other when the riding gets a bit harder so be prepared to push… πŸ™‚
    If you are a bit of a noob (like me) but like the challenge of riding a big bike where it was not meant to be ridden (like me) let me know.

    The idea is to go for a Tutorial and practice day, we will be doing:
    – Balance
    – Braking
    – cornering
    – Hill starts and stops
    – Hill descent
    – probably mud
    – probably Sand, soft and hard

    We will start 9am on Saturday the 1st of April at this stage.
    Meeting at Riverhead Z petrol station, 1090 Coatesville-Riverhead Hwy, Auckland 0820, and go from there.

    If you plan to attend reply to this so I can know how many are coming. (if any) πŸ˜€

    Thanks
    Joao

    Hi Guys, I’m sorry but I need to change the ride to the 8th of April Saturday. Same time same place, just different date.
    @sushibar hope you can still make it.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    Can I go with a KLR?
    Happy to help with the lifting and push.
    Also, maybe I can get cones if you have a place in mind for doing slow slalom riding.

    Yep, you and anyone can come on any bike, I’ve just put 800CC and above to invite the Bigbike riders, but all bikes/riders are welcome.
    If you can bring some cones, please do. I think we can make something with them! πŸ™‚
    This is more of a beginners ride rather than a “formal training day”, I leave that to the pros πŸ˜‰

    I would like to come along also. I’ve got a small bike but it’s still bigger than my skills base:) I’ve got lots to learn. Also happy to push.

    Cheers

    Sounds interesting, I’ve been hoping for some guys to help me when I get stuck.

    Not brave enough to try and get off the beach at Rimmers or Wilsons rd on my lone morning rides

    Been having trouble changing my bike details on the site but swapped my 950 for a 1200GSA (another 30kg or so πŸ™‚ )

    It would be rude and (in my case) foolish not to take up your kind offer of riding tuition and advice Joao, so please count me in – weather dependant. I’ll be representing Massey Ferguson, on board a DR650. Thanks.

    Well I’m happy to see that there is interest in doing this. This is hardly going to be a tuition or even advice… it is going to be more of a noob-to-nood advice sharing πŸ˜€ and adventurous riding. Don’t come with high expectations on my part πŸ˜€

    Yes weather dependent, we will see what it turns out on the day.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I think this can be useful for most of us before the Saturday ride.

    Hi,
    So the weather is looking promising for Saturday… (after the last couple of days I was thinking we would have trouble…)

    Looking forward to next saturday.

    Just some house keeping. The low tide for Muriwai is at 14:00 so if we are keen we can access and ride on the beach.
    For those who do not have a permit, please apply for one just in case at http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/licencesregulations/drivingonbeaches/Pages/home.aspx
    The permit is free and is available immediately.

    Looking forward to Saturday.
    Joao
