PostSubject: next issue of MOD's MOTORS   Fri Jun 10, 2011 6:10 pm

Hi

Watch out for the next issue of MOD's motors.

I've had a sneak preview and there's a promo in it for Grinderfest. MOD reckons his e-zine reach 360,000 readers, so if nothing else, more people will be exposed to the type of stuff that interests us... hopefully that's a good thing.

[And by the way, I didn't ask him to promo my bike as this month's Reader's Ride - seriously, I really didn't!!]

Cheers cheers

Started to put this one back together at the weekend. Played aqround with spacers for the front wheel last night but I need some bigger diameter bar to make a stepped spacer for the brake caliper. Also need to make a spacer for the rear chain sprocket on the gearbox. Should have it all ready in time.
Flat ouit week in work so I'll have to start pushing up the publicity level for Grinderfest next week and starting to confirm that people are actually going to show up with bikes or I'm going to look pretty lonely in September.

Plastered your flyer on a few common websites that I'm sure alot of Kiwi's and members here visit.
If it gets a few bites from interested people, all the better.
Hope you don't mind man.
Respect.

PostSubject: Got a date   Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:36 pm

Ok so we now have the final date for the show.
Grinderfest will take place on September 10th 2011 at the
Shed 5 Speed Shop
90 Wellesley St.
Auckland

Judging will start at 2pm but the bikes can be set up a few days before. Final details on that in the next few weeks.

So, get those spanners swinging and get those projects finished. Lets have those update pictures and confirmations to let us know how much space to clear. Finished or not, lets see those bike.

Cheers
Irish

Hay and while your at it, How the hell are we going to get all these bikes up to Auckland Doug Question Shocked
Now's probably a good time to work out just how many of the Wellington crew are going to need some sort of transportation for there Bikes.
So let us know will ya's, And we'll work something out.

I'd be keen for my bike to have a trailer ride if there's room... happy to take my car too if we need people transport. Would we go up on the Friday (9th)?

Hi Ben. Certainly you can bring your SR. I'd like to get all the local boys to bring their stuff in as I'm not sure how many of teh original entries are actually going to make it. There's probably going to be a crowd riding i from my place.
Try emailing the pics to me in work at. jon.kinsley-smith@hcl-axon.com.
