  • 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!!!
    In addition they suggested i go to blondies cafe and bar down the road…[Read more]

    Hi guys i wanted to say thanks so much for all your help.
    I ended up with shinko 705s i did a bunch of research in addition to your comments.
    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!

    Thanks Gerrie,
    What was the tyre wear like on those?
    I do big miles on Tarmac so need something thats relatively long lasting, i suppose the fact that I’m running a lighter bike would make them last longer too though?

    Yeah the E09 is a bit pricey at $300 odd.
    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!
    Thanks again guys you…[Read more]

    Thank you so much, i have noone to ask, i have no mates who do this and don’t trust the guys at the bike shop cause they just put me to the most expensive tyre.

  • I had 27hp on my last bike and that wasn’t enough, i now have a LAMS DL650 and i feel like thats too much at 47hp lol

    Hi guys,
    I’m not only new to adventure bikes, I’m also new to riding in general.
    I bought a DL650 and I’ve been busy setting it up with crash bars and bash plates and panniers etc but in the mean time i have been looking at what tyres to put on it.
    I’ll be doing a bit of sandy stuff and some rocky stuff for a spot of hunting and fishing, but…[Read more]
