    I am pleased to report that teh internets was restored by 4am and only one GN mud guard was destroyed in the withdrawal rage that set in once we returned from our walk. Mallet in destructive mode = 0rSm!

    Creative writing on a biker site. You're either misplaced or brave. Either should be applauded.

    the rain is a bitch alright !!! What I take with me on tour now a days is a heavy duty Pvc pants & jacket ( learnt this on GC 24hr rides ) that are large enough to throw over my riding gear, have tried proper bike ones but swear Pvc is better 2 weeks & my tour begins YEAH BABY !! Look forward to your next report

    Good on you dude, sounds like you're having a ball despite the weather. Make sure you head over Paekakariki hill road on your way out if the weather is ok, the view alone is worth it not to mention the twisties! Also recommend Feilding through Rangiwahia rd to Mangaweka if you want some interesting scenery on your way back north. Alternatively Vinegar Hill SH54 but if you've spent time 'round Welly you might know this way already. Have a good rest of trip and I look forward to reading more of your adventures. Take care!

    Did they break down the invoice for parts and labour?
    How handy are you with a tool kit and full service manual?

    I have to say, I'm writing this down as much for my own benefit as anyone elses: reading back through this when I am back at work will help to ease to boredom!

    Good to hear you enjoyed yourself, next time we will make it a bit of a longer ride but at least now you know what to expect! You will be surprised how little time it takes to get used to the wobbling around bit and you will be passing us geriatrics fairly soon.

    Some were short termed due to long rides coming up and a couple with punctures causing excessive wear.
