Love the mountains, but the concrete anti-drifter centerline markers sure keep you pushing only 7/10 which is a real shame the roads are awesome.Originally from the Northern Auckland Area, Hibiscus Coast.
Great to see another Kiwi on board. Im always a bit envious of the south island crew you seem to have more organised bikers as far as get togethers and rides.Less coppers on those fast scenic south island roads . Nothing wrong with starting on a 400 ,my first bike was a step thru mountain goat on the farm .I think it was a 200cc bit like an ag100 . And dad would boot my bum if he caught me riding it
We might have the roads but you guys seem to get the better weather for getting out to ride.Mind you we had a good couple of weeks of great weather not long ago and boy did everyone make the most of it I've seen more bikes out this summer on the coast than in a long time.
winter is the best time to ride over hear, summer can be to hot sometimes. your sweating your ass of just getting your leathers on some mornings, we try to leave by 6.am in summer. there are police everywhere at the moment, i'm serving a 6 months loss of licence as we speak. i will be over there at christmas and am going to hire a bike for a few days, looking forward to it.
...but from what I understand, the best way to get a refresher course is to go back to the school or institute that trained you originally and see what they offer. A list of schools by state can be found here:
i need one steel S2R poem bar-end weight (with 12mm shaft)
( one of mine has gone missing )
as many people install bar-end mirrors there must be a few lying around.
drop me a line if you can help
