  1. Tui Brewery - Pro-rider day - SH3

    Sunday 9 May

    Weather looking pretty good, have a good healthy breakfast, load the saddle bags up with plenty merino layers stuffed into plastic bags and head on out of town about noon time. Just before leaving I remember to call mum for mother's day, she's not there, so leave a message. Tank is already full of gas, but a quick stop at the garage to confirm tyre pressures and away we go. Smooth running down to Taupo, and plenty of bikes on the road. Many waving opportunities. Pull ...
  2. Hastings Farmers Market - Easter Sunday 2010

    The morning broke fine the star fill sky filled with the promise of a great start to the day....

    Honored and lucky enough to live in the Waikato, I was witness ...
  4. Winter Run to Reporoa

    It was an awesome June morning... but then I new it would be.... its my favorite time of the year on the bike.... crisp frosty mornings leading on to awesome riding days.

    I had 1pm appointment in Reporoa so I wanted to be on the road by 10.30 so I had heaps of time.

    I turned up at the Bank Managers place to pick up Aliesha (Ali) 19 and gorgeous the BM's daughter and get on the road.

    As seems to be the way I spent the next 45 minutes waiting to leave... ...
