    CRC Speedshow 2014.

    Everything to do with motor vehicles will be at the speedshow, including this year a motorcycle mega-site.

    Strong support from local motorcycle importers has vindicated CRC Speedshow director Ross Prevette’s decision to create a special ‘motorcycle mega-site’ in the main hall at this year’s 19-20 July event at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds.

    Harley-Davidson was one of the first major two-wheel marques to confirm its presence at this year’s show and since then Ducati, Victory and now Indian have committed to individual stands while – literally – every other major manufacturer, from Aprilia to Yamaha, and BMW to Honda, Suzuki, Triumph and Moto Guzzi will be represented in a dedicated ‘mega-site’ coordinated by Bike Rider and Dirt Rider Downunder (DRD) magazines.

    I’ll be at the speedshow today checking it out.

    If you’re there keep an eye out and introduce yourself. I’ll be wearing a red Isle of Man TT jacket with an Adventure Riding NZ t shirt.

    Had a good day at the CRC Speedshow at ASB Showgrounds in Auckland today, checked out some new bikes, saw some old bikes and some amazing 4 wheeled machinery.

    This G/S was outside in the bike parking, this bike might have been on trade me recently?

    Royal Enfield again

    Clean Motorcycles from Lower Hutt in Wellington had the new Benelli Trek Amazonas. It was a nice machine and a quick sit on it indicated the ergonomics were pretty good if you are 5’8″-5’9″.

    I took some video of bike Stunting, a 3000hp drag car and a Jet engine powered car which I’ll upload to Youtube and share also, they were pretty impressive.
