Nightmares?! Ah mate, come on! Renovations? You mean you're supervising the contractors, or you're actually picking up a hammer and paint brush?

I wish I could afford to get contractors to do the job but I rather do it myself and save the money for a bike. You can always drop Mei off my place so she can help me to install my new bathroom. :msn-wink:

Ahh yeah that was a great ride. First time I did the whole loop.

Boys in blue followed us for a bit, but one of our own coppers (who happend to be riding with us - sorry didn't catch your name) had a nice chat with him :third:

It was AWESOME except for the freshly sealed roads and tar :angry:

Yeah man, wicked day, awesome ride and surprisingly good food at Whitianga takeaways (try the wraps). There was the mandatory Gixer bin, but bike appeared to be in remarkedly good condition after going through a street sign and off a bank! Guy seemed ok too.

then saw a officer with a ginger beard parked at the end on the straight... tsk tsk, be careful out there huh?!?!

Yeah, I didn't see it happen so I won't comment on this particular bin, but in general, it never ceases to amaze me how 6 guys can all go around the same corner at the same speed, yet somehow one rider doesn't....

binned gsxrs? now wheres me new spare parts bike:doctor:
and macksta, prople thing their balls are big but half way around the corner realise they arnt as big as they thought and meet the ditch.

at least he had some gravel to overun to, if it was 100m further or back it couldve been down a rocky cliff into the sea

wait, that's you licence right? not a bike?:P



how was the coro gp?

fucking awesome! i wanna do it again!

and this time i'll have some charged batteries in my camera, and rather than wasting the first few ks battling my way to the front after every stop, i'll just start at the front and tailgate fraze up to the lead:bleh:

the trusty viffer managed to outcorner all of them 'cept for fraze and a random rossi on the r1

even beat raj on his new r6:D:bleh::woohoo:

1st pic from coro, rest from tank mounting test (very shaky), scenic drive (nasty surprise that nearly sent me into a ditch at 90kph), and protest ride

will post on youtube asap, which may be a few days away. i just printscreened these straight off a media player and trimmed in paint (and had to compress in jpg in order to upload here)
