Thought I will post this on behalf of Bomma so that everyone interested for this weekends ride can ask questions etc.

"FROM BOMMA'S EMAIL - don't sue me for plagiarism"

When: 10 am Saturday 25 August (Shift to Sunday if weather is crap on Sat)Where: Meet by the gym on Symonds St.Departure: We will be leaving from the gym at 10.30 sharp so come early to makesure you dont get left behind.Where to: We are heading up north, probably up as far as Waipu (about 200kms).Is that it: When we get there, we will have a chat and see if anyone wants to head up further. If yes then we keep going, if not then we make tracks heading back!!Who For: People of all skill levels are welcome. This ride is mainly targeted at learner riders but if we get enough people, we will split into two groups, alead pack and a joy ride pack, just to accomodate for the differences in skilland experience. A good chance to get out on the road to pick up some tips and get experience on open roads (and we dont mean open roads as in auckland city late at night when there's no traffic).


It is probably going to be cold :cold: so wear warm cloths. haha

Yea nice little pootle, whered u guys go to after the caltex in Wellsford, the 3 of us had a nice hoon chasing down a gixxer thou and a Ducati 999, I sure showed them 600 power :buggerd: ;) Nice mature riding all round. Good on u all for riding your own rides, though we did stop every 5 kms to regroup :mad: ... one more ride on my nackered rear tire and its burnout time :devil2: Cheers to the organizers and :kick: to Steven for not waiting up for me when I was refueling zzzzzz...

Hope you had fun chasing down some pansies.

On the other note, your wheelies down at Mangawhai Heads were a bit of a pansy. :laugh:

I expected a full blown 70 degrees from you :eek:, but instead you gave us those half arsed 5 cm ones.

Haha i am sure that tyre will still give me at least 1000km;s before it needs to be replaced. haha. I am glad I made it home without having to call for a trailer. Will take it to cycletreads tomorrow to get it fixed.

haha bro ill tell you a story, on the way upto westgate from uni a right cunt in a van was tailgating one of the smaller bikes. me n stephen were at the back so steve pulls up tellin the guy to back off...so he swerves into the lane in front of me nearly hittin me and then tailgatin another small bike,

so i change lanes and am tryna get in front of the van to cut him off and get him off the bikes ass and the cunt wudnt let me merge and he was seriously about a metre behind the bike so i sped up cut in front and slowed right down and steve gets beside him on the other lane so he cant change lanes and get past....we got him down to 80kph and off everyones ass

what a cunt...was hopin he'd turn into westgate petrol station so we could exchange some....words :bash:

25th August 2007, 22:15
Yea was that on the motorway aye... I saw that cunt... was like wtf is he tryin to do... I usually tap my rear brakes n it does the job or just weave in my lane (they get scared apparently). Some cage drivers have the mental capasity of sheep.

bomma
25th August 2007, 22:20
i just dont see the point in cars sittin on a small bikes ass....its not gonna go any faster unless you get on its tail and start pushing....

some people just deserve a good smash to jolt some sense into em

im just glad dat pretty much every cage on the ride moved over and gave us way

it helped that raj was in second gear making sure that all they could hear was his r6 roaring :D

Actually I was there about 45 mins prior to the fast groups arrival...( I was surprised I didn't c u guys en route, I was beginning to feel a little
"nub") was shooting the shit with a few other bikers I found *nice how u can rock upto any biker and talk to them as if they were ur long lost buddies... that was after I stopped again to take a piss at the caltex on the way, went to a mates place n dragged him outa bed and got him used to his new R6. And I was nanning it as it was wet:sunny: I was like weren't there a few 250's and 4hundies ... damn I must be slow as...:shit::bye: All good though.. still waiting on that guy who took some sexy shots of my bike to post up or identify himself like Kim kindly did...
