Taupo Winter Classic

Had a fun weekend at Taupo, as I did not have any spannering to do other than taking off the fairing due to broken bracket I had time to wander around...

Steve Bryant ( aka Sidecar Bob) owns both bikes and his missus 'swings'....
I had a ride on the R100, needs some suspension and brake work but he is faster than me...

Kanes R100 is plenty fast but developed a bad vibration so he called it a day ...hope hes sorted for Barry Sheen in 4 weeks.

Vince Burrel on his very fast Guzzi.

post classic 500 Morini...the one to beat in 500 class.

My fav outfit a 1955 Triumph. they have taken it to the IOM.

Young Tyler Lincoln, up and coming, not yet 15 on his 75 kg RS 125 Honda with 45 HP....

and the Mighty Ninety, went really well and I looked up my times from April and have improved by 7 seconds a lap....
.check out my $150 ride on stand...uber cool.

Ja ja sehr cool.
I noticed there are more than one disc on the front of all of those bikes. What's that about? Is one a spare so you don't have to change wheels - you just change the brake cable over?

Surely you can do better than the old green drink bottle as a catch bottle? Surely there must be some German beer bottles in plastic?

Was Bernards Guzzi there? Did it win?

Manfield. To tell you the truth I don't think I can last that long. I'm thinking of coming over in a few weeks once Schmidt is running really well.

If you are over here for your Xmas holidays there is the CDMTC track day (3rd Jan I think) at Manfield which would allow you to take Schmidtty out for a run.
