  1. Such a sick ride. Over half of the riders were from out of town. Solid effort. Thanks team!
  2. This is coming up soon! Forecast looks like anything could happen; we've had 2 years of rain forecast and it hasn't done so yet. We'll be there regardless! Rain is only water after all...

    Lum's Honda Life (Moped NZ)

    Whilst it's been an absolute dream; it's not my dream bike. So the '63 Honda will be leaving the fleet early next year. About to fit a NOS exhaust and repaint the tank; then it's up for grabs. Letting OS know first. A lot of time and effort has gone into this build including a 20,000 KM round trip just to get the wheels. 125 Lifan powered with 2000 KM under it's belt; this thing is pretty damn stunning and so so so fun to ride. With a massive tank you won't need to be so cautious of each fuel station you pass. It does a good wheelie and it's actually never done a skid - meaning I've really loved this thing. If anyone is keen then get at me before next year. This will go on Trademe in January.
  5. If you’re gonna draw unwanted attention don’t bother. If it will blend in then at your own risk.

    My 125 vibrates like fuck and I love it. I do skids and/or ride WOT till oil empties out the breather but I keep it topped up and then change it out every 1000kms or couple of months - whichever comes first. Shipping oil is shit. Don’t use it; regardless if it didn’t harm anyone else’s bike. People will probably still debate this though because it was ‘fine’ for them. Anyone ever been to a Lifan factory? I have. The quality control isn’t great; but the products generally are epic and last well as long as they’re ‘looked after’. Generally this means every single person has a different experience with every engine made. Ed March has done over 100,000 miles on Lifans; but he maintains them religiously and strips them down before use and triple checks tolerances and torque on bolts etc. Don’t really need to go that nuts unless you’re riding around the world. TLDR; everyone will experience different things in different ways. Anyway; sick bike. Loving the tail light and the full rear fender. Can’t wait to see this thing hooning!
  7. One place I don’t recommend is the start venue (Classic Flyers) or the local Bunnings. We’re pretty keen to not piss them off. Aerodrome road is a big U shape with the start location at one end of the loop next to Bunnings and the airport at the end of the U. There is tonnes of parking on the side of the road at the other exit of Aerodrome road. If you follow around past the start venue, go past the airport; there should be plenty of parking there. Alternatively there is side road off the other end of Aerodrome road. Unload and park where shown in the photo below. Meet us at the start point!

    Fat-Daddys ATC110 - Build

    Good move not getting that engine. It's been on trademe so long I was considering it for my Chaly over a year ago. I decided against it, bought a Lifan and couldn't be happier. The engine looks like an ATC engine more than a CT too.

    Aaaannnnd this past weekend was a year since Eastcape OG. Judging by the weather I think we picked a good weekend to do it this year.
  11. Do it! Such a wicked little ride. Good area for top speed runs too.

    Yup Lee the Canadian sounding RD/AG50 rider isn’t on OS. But he’s keen bean. Just flicked him a message.

    +1. Been waiting for OS to come back to claim it for Anaru.
  14. Had a lot of people not wanna come last year because of that; trying it the other way around this year. If it’s less popular we can always do it different next year. Bring bikes regardless that earlier weekend @Raizer.
