G'day to all of you out there on the internet, hope all has been treating you well, and better then me. I've had a couple of weeks that I'd rather forget that's for sure. I headed off from here and on that night I got a call from the Police to say that my shop had been broken into and that things were generally a bit of a mess. I race back from Auckland to find my mint 900SS sitting on the side of the road, not a good sight, then I pull into my complex and there's my Diavel lying on its side. I walk into my shop to find it totally demolished, everything that i had on display gone, two really nice Monsters gone and the worst , the 996 SPS gone too. I've since recovered the Monsters, but they are pretty well write offs. So all in all I had Bell helmets, my new welding plant all my tools even my Carbon Art T shirts stolen. I'm pretty circumspect about it now but the thing that gets me is they even stole my jacket that had all but two of the worlds 500cc motorcycle champions signatures on it. It means nothing to them, but it took 15 years to get the jacket to that point. So pretty pissed off about that. They took some strange shit that's for sure, even all my fishing gear. So it's been a massive set back to me even with insurance in place, I don't know how long it's going to take me to get this back on track again. So that's why you haven't seen me in while, trying to sort shit out that's all.
As an aside to that I have been in Japan buying bikes and looking at the operation over there so that I have a better understanding of that end of the trade. Certainly was bloody interesting. You'll see more of that further down the page. I managed to get to Motegi to watch the GP which was amazing and visited the Honda museum, so you will also see some images of that here this week too. So sit back enjoy the images. It's a big issue with plenty to look out.
The eyes have it, this man is a legend, no doubt about it
These three bikes were the ones that were stolen. They didn't even bother to tie them down, I know this because I have all the smashed pieces of the 996 fairings sitting in the back of my ute. bastards!!!!!
Whilst in Japan I found all these lovely Bimotas sitting there brand new, so if anyone wants one give me a call, I know where they are. They are not cheap ( as you would expect), but if you want a brand new Bimota I can get it for you.
A single sidearm Kawasaki by Sanctuary, there are so many parts on this bike, it is not funny. It's for sale if you want something pretty special. Also not cheap, but worth every cent.
This Honda was badged differently and was so full of parts it would be difficult as to where to begin, but it is special.
This was being wrecked for parts!!!!!!! It was mint. Still it could be bought before it gets torn down.
Hundreds of these all new
