By registering at the KZrider.com community, you agree to the following terms. KZrider.com reserves the right to remove any posting it finds unsuitable. Members who refuse to play by the following rules will be excluded from the discussion board.

PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISING IS STRICTLY LIMITED
KZrider is more than a website. Its members comprise a community of KZ enthusiasts dedicated to encouraging and preserving our sport and passion for Kawasaki Z, Z1 and KZ motorcycles. We pursue our passion because we enjoy it, not to make money from it. To that end KZrider.com is not a place for you to solicit sales of any kind. No member is allowed to refer to their own business, or any business to which he/she is associated, through the discussion forum or personal messaging system (U2U). Be aware, the U2U feature has been abused in the past. If any member solicits an unwelcomed solicitation through the U2U system please report that solicitation to the Administrator or Moderators promptly.

There are four exceptions to this policy:
1. As permitted in Classifieds (consumer-to-consumer transactions).
2. An item may be offered for sale as a consumer-to-consumer transaction in any forum where there exists reasonable expectation of being welcomed by another member who has previously posted in the thread ("cold calls" and "door-to-door" solicitations are prohibited).
3. Each member is allowed a simple link (somesite.com) in their signature, which link shall include no description of any kind.
4. Paying advertisers are allowed to post in the Vendor forum.

KEEP IT CLEAN
You may not post libelous or defamatory messages or materials, or include links to such materials in your postings. You may not post messages that are obscene, violent, abusive or designed to harass or intimidate another individual. Pornography, Warez, or any other illegal transactions may not be posted or included in members profiles. No blatant nudity.

BE CIVILIZED
Don't use racial, ethnic, or gender slurs, religiously derogatory comments or any other personal discriminations even in jest. Use of slurs needlessly offends people - whether or not they're a member of the group you've insulted. Respect others' religious beliefs and culture. Recognize that others have religious and personal beliefs which may differ from yours. Stay away from political debates. Keep the language and behaviour appropriate.

USE DESCRIPTIVE THREAD TITLES
When you post a new thread, please give users some idea of what it contains in the title. Thread titles like "Help" or "Check this out!" are cheap ways of getting users to look at a thread they might not care about, and would not have clicked on had the full title "Help, I need credit card numbers!" been used. Furthermore, it helps stop multiple threads on the same subject. When starting a new thread, describe the content of your thread clearly in the 'Subject' line of your post. Don't use vague subjects. Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic they care about. For example: "HELP!!" is not an appropriate subject and neither is "My bike doesn't run".

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT!
That cap lock key wasn't invented to help you get your message across. Messages written in all caps are annoying, hard to read, and loud.

HAS IT BEEN POSTED ALREADY?
Please look for an existing thread on a subject before you post one about it. Chances are good that your question has already been answered. There is a search feature on these forums, use it. Starting topics that have already been answered in great detail is a waste of everyone's time. Look to see if information you're about to post has just been posted by someone else. Then go ahead and post.

WE HAVE SECTIONS FOR A REASON
The Technical Forums have different sections for a reason. If you're not sure, use your best judgment. 

DON'T CROSS-POST
Cross-posting is when you post the same message multiple times in various threads or forums. We only need to see it once guys. 

STAY ON TOPIC
Keep threads on topic. If you've got something completely unrelated to say then start a new thread. Unresponsive solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale are prohibited as being unrelated and off topic, but solicitations for consumer-to-consumer sale may be posted in Classifieds.

CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF YOUR WORDS BEFORE POSTING
Adhere to the same high standards (or higher) of behaviour online that you follow in real life. In real life, most people are fairly polite and law abiding. The same rules of behaviour are expected on any list.

MESSAGES SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE TOPIC BEING DISCUSSED
or introduce a relevant idea. If you've read enough threads, you've already learned how annoying it is to go through "Me Too" posts. A "Me Too" is a post that says "I agree with what the other guy said" and otherwise does not add to the content. If you have a comment about someone else's post, tell them via U2U or email. Generally speaking, unless it concerns the entire group and is within the group's stated purpose, you should reply only to the author. Avoid replies or responses to the whole list of yes, no, or "I agree!". This is meaningless and you too would be annoyed to open such a message.

WELCOME TO KZRIDER
If you are a new member, introduce yourself by posting to the New Member Forum. While it's nice to welcome a new member, only do so if they have posted in the New Members forum. There is no need for 50 welcome posts in a technical forum thread.

U2U IS A WONDERFUL FEATURE
Please don't start a topic that is directed at one person that could be put into a U2U to them. If you have a message for one or two posters, use U2U or email.

PICTURE PERFECT
Images & attachments may be posted as long as they are not explicive or offensive. Images are limited in size to 2mb. The Project Forum is for members' rides only and is an ideal place to document your rebuild.

FLAME-WARS
Don't even start them, they will be ended, quickly, and you'll find yourself on the short bus. Flaming: Personal attacks in cyberspace can be particularly vicious. Flaming is the rather nasty art of attacking others on a personal level.

Mark1122 I would like to sign on for a segment of the ride. Do you know the approximate dates of the ride passing through Burlington so I can make plans to join in. I would love to do some of this ride now that my 900 is finally done and to meet some of the guys!

Hi Kawboy, good to here from u.
it would be very dif to guess when it will be comming through, Aug. ???
add your name to the KZR Relay,Google Map that is in my signature below. if u have trouble just holler.
u r between TeK9iNe,jonny(niagara?) and drooz.
i think it should work like this.

please pm the riders nearest to u on the google map, and coordinate how u would like to participate with each other. if u have friends that dont have vintage bikes,they r welcome to join u. the consensus is that the flag should be carried by a vintage bike though.
after sorting out who rides when, please post it or let me know, and i will update the list in sequence, so everyone can get an idea of how it ill go. dont be worried about changing the rout latter. this is an ongoing process so anyone can join in at any time and change thing up. thats how i see it anyways, but if anyone had a dif perspective im all ears.
Mark

I'm not sure what's happening once we get this far. As far as I know there is a gap between between you and I. Then it needs to go south again. So not sure what's happening there. Also, like you said, the weather could turn and make things difficult.

Tony, let's be honest here......anything after the end of September/mid-October is a "non-starter" because of the dodgy weather, IMO.....at least on the Prairies and the interior of BC. Any time later than that is totally out of the question, IMO.....excepting "instant and severe global warming". :laugh:
I, for one, am NOT big on riding in temps any lower than about +15*C for any kind of distances. Others may find that kind of riding "exhilarating", though. ;)
If we are going to do this thing in ONE western Canadian riding season AND get the banner back over the border to someone in Washington state then the handover at the border realistically can't take place much later than mid-October, IMO.
Sooooo....everyone back "upstream" (read Ontario/Quebec) has to get their collective act together to prevent any probs later on, weatherwise. Let me/us have further thoughts from you on this.

I knew Jack's health wasn't so good as he had told me he wanted to be in the relay but had to limit his riding. So sad to hear of his passing, wish he could have got his wish and got to ride in the relay. :(

Ok. the current roster looks like this.

TeK9iNe – Niagara
Jonny - Niagara,
Kawboy74 - David , Burlington
Drooz – Mississauga
mopguy - Toronto
mark1122 - stephenzone - Cobourg
9am53 – Kingston, Moscow
jeffasaki - North Bay
rstnick - Sutton
M357.5 - Owen Sound
JR - Woodstock
Toad - Chatham, Ontario
Renthorin - Dexter Mi.
Street Fighter LTD - Hamburg, Michigan

cregmanz1 - Winnipeg
Killman - Victoria BC.. Might as well take it to the furthest Southwest part of Canada
Tony - I'm in for BC. I can do part of Alberta

H2RICK - I live in Saskatoon but at the moment my bikes are in Regina. I live in Calgary and COULD do a border (Walsh, AB on the east side)-to-border (Lake Louise, AB on the west side) if necessary....or if the weather cooperates, I might go all the way to Golden, BC.
The possibilities are endless....

KZ250LTD - I can carry for Sk, not sure of work schedule at the moment though

i wonder if you west coast guys would benifit more from posting in the leg 3 or 4 thread? not sure wich leg goes by you guys?
i think this thread should have been called the ontario leg, it seem thats all thats going on here for the most part.


dont forget to contact the guys around u and sort things out.

Dont forget me! I'm not part of your relay leg but I'm taking the flag through NB, NS, and NL. I'm thinking about making a side trip to PEI just to say the flag made it there too.

Quebec, as usual, will be left out haha.

Ahh, no thanks. I already have 3600km to cover just to get it from Maine back to NL. And 5 days to do it in, plus two 7 hour ferry rides, woooo! At least the ferry stages will be at night so I can sleep.

Where are we with this for the western leg ?? Do we have any possible dates yet ??

Is the flag coming west around the north side of Lake Superior ?? Or is it going through ON and then back down to the USA through Windsor and then back to Canada through Minnesota/ Manitoba ??

The world wants to know...... ;)

Here is a copy of a proposed route ,from KZJOE900,(from page 1 of this thread).
just so were all on the same page.
I'd like to update the ontario section, if we could nail it down.
I'll need to here were the new guys fit in first though.

The route has changed quite a bit since that map.

After a hand off in St. Joe's Mich. it's going Trough Indiana , Illinois, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and then back into Canada .
Hopefully North and South Dakota can sprout some riders.

I'm not sure there is a legit map of leg 2 :side: for down here.

Renthorin is expressing a want to receive the flag around Windsor ON , meet Street Fighter LTD some where and hopefully hook up with Harm then ride to St. Joseph for Thai food.

I'm handing off to Wendy/DoubleDub in Beloit Wisc. so far.

That will be the end of Leg 2

Tom W is in charge of leg 3, I think there is a map I'll look around.
