Yamaha Design Cafe

Posted by simon

Well, i've seen the Design Cafe on a few websites over the last week or so, so I decided to check it out.

The site shows a few concept models, and asks for your feedback on what you'd like to see.

Check it out for yourself here

It would be greate to see this sort of thing from all the manufacturers, so even if you're not particularly a Yamaha person, check it out, and give it a go.

Fast 50's

Posted by simon

Having just recently bought a little Z50 for the kids, I started searching the 'net for some information on the little beasties.

Well, I knew that the 150 models were becomming popular, but what do you know, the Z50, XR50 and that sized bike is having a massive resurgence as well!

Check out some of these articles/sites!

Whew. Sounds like those guys are having way too much fun. Maybe the kids wont get much use out of the little beastie after all ;-)

My first (two day) ride with AMTRA was to Millicent, South Australia.

The ride was rated moderate/hard due to the large amount of beach/sand riding, moving off into forest riding on the second day.

Well it happened that the SA Police picked the Friday night to put a Breathalyser on the freeway coming out of Adelaide! Which delayed my Pickup by Mark & Ian by at least 30 minutes.

Anyway, they arrived, We put the XR onto the trailer with the other two bikes, showed the gear into the back of the station wagon, and off we rolled.
