    Lol yes, was first time property on metal for GSA so we were putting it through its paces

    Came through very well, very nimble I thought for its size.

    Needed Rob Roy on AT to give us some good pace, those old AT’s ridden well are something else (Good)

    KLR Ramblers ride – June
    If you are looking for an easy but fun gravel oriented ride, look no further.
    The details are all here:

    This time the GPX file is again more in the rally style. It doesn’t have a track, but the way-points and a route. If you are using it in your GPS be careful! “Clever” GPS devices can take you places where you did not want to go, thanks to the auto routing function. 🙂
    All kind of bikes are welcome, not just KLR.

    This was the picture I was trying to post earlier. I didn’t quite have the nerve to gun it over that fallen tree (twig?) hence lost momentum with the inevitable result of getting stuck.

    Thanks Andrew and John for a great ride Saturday. Burma Road was great, can’t wait to go back and do it again.

    Hi,
    Here is a short ride report with a few pictures from the June KLR Ramblers ride.
    June – Ride report

    I watched a very interesting video tonight and could not resist to re-blog it.

    Big, single cylinder bikes will not disappear from one day to the other, but how long can we buy new ones?

    Joao, it’s a little loop road off Run Road on the way to the Okahukura Peninsula. Great views over the Kaipara. Would be perfect today, sunny and no howling westerly! Just another great bit of gravel around Auckland. I’ll post next time I head up there.

    Auckland Riders,

    Hello. I hope this post finds everyone well.

    I am writing to the ‘Auckland Riders’ audience to learn if anyone may be able to recommend an independent, affordable, or semi-retired motorcycle engine rebuilder located in the Auckland area. Specifically, I am interested in corresponding with a mechanic or business that may be able to replace a countershaft or output shaft in an older Honda V-Twin 750.

    Thanks in advance!

    David
