So, my v-strom clutch decided to die on my way back from Auckland, performance motorcycles in drury saved my life, came and picked my bike up off the side of the road.
I rang 7 different companies who refused so if you are local to there or you need something done go to them!!!

Hi guys i wanted to say thanks so much for all your help.

I found the issues and the solutions to they problems with these tyres and I’ve ridden these for about 100km now and they feel better than the old anakee IIIs i had on it, now when i say old they were 14yrs…[Read more]
Thanks for your advice, just had surgery on my knee, thanks to a txting driver who turned in front of me when i was about 10m away from him.
I’ve saved some good money towards tyres now and will check out those tusk tyres and see how that goes!

I’m looking for $250 and under really.
But undoubtedly a good tyre!
I did look at the TKC 80 though and might consider that at the first suggestion is only made in 18s and i need a 17.
I looked at the Motoz and i think they are in my price bracket so I’ll take a squizz at them too!

I’ll be doing a bit of sandy stuff and some rocky stuff for a spot of hunting and fishing, but…[Read more]
