Boring stuff about your boring life.

  1. 2017 - 1st Up

    13/01/17

    After getting back from Hamilton I had to drop the bike in for its 96,000 Km service ...even if it was a little late at 97,500 Km. That was an easy way to blow $600+ with a new air-cleaner, plugs etc, etc and although I'd bought a new front, expecting to fit it, that's still got a couple of thousand Km in it and the relatively new rear (5,000 Km) is looking worse ...but only on the sides thanks to some hard cornering on great roads.

    With that done and a nice ...
  2. 2016 In Review

    31/12/16

    It’s been an odd year. I don’t feel like I’ve done much riding due to weather and work, but the reality is that I’ve done few rides but a reasonable amount of Km.

    The year started with a 1,000 miler (1600 Km with Gray - https://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/forums/e...th-of-a-Legend! )

    Followed up with the biggest ride of my life in March, ( https://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/forums/e...-Hobbit-s-Tail ...
  3. The Post-Christmas Pootle

    27-30/12/16

    This year saw the 90th Anniversary of the Maori Tennis Tournament …which didn’t mean a lot to me, but it did mean that I had to ride to Hamilton, then go riding around the Waikato for a couple of days, then ride back …so, as usual, I was really excited that Ann had to go to the Maori tennis tournament!

    Our adventure commenced on Boxing Day with a short hop to Hawera, Ann taking the car because she was hitching a ride from there, then bringing some Moko’s ...
  4. 2016 MDA Run

    25-27/11/16

    This year was my 11th MDA run after missing the 2014 ride …and it still hasn’t lost its charm of being a great ride while serving a great cause to see some joy brought to the lives of some children afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy.

    This year my involvement included sorting a budget and coming up with a ride plan, which was to be very different from all the other years I have been attending.

    Last year would have been the worst (hardest) year ...

  6. 2016 1KC - The 10th Anniversary Super Thou

    Well that was another nice wee fang!

    Apparently I have a problem when it comes to riding and creating routes for longer rides ….I like corners!

    After all, let’s face it, I’m not one to throw my arse around or hang off the seat, but the subtle shifting of weight that occurs whilst negotiating a delicious string of lefts and rights does wonders to alleviate the aching-numb-bum that manifests when sitting for hour after hour in the saddle on a boring, straight state highway. ...

  8. The Half

    24/09/16

    After much planning to produce ‘the half’, it was finally time to ride it. ‘The half’ being the ‘North Island 800’, an NZ Distance Riders offering to ride 800km in 12 hours, which is being run in conjunction with the North Island 1600 24 hour event, although for some reason, I’ve never heard that referred to as ‘the Full’.

    The event isn’t scheduled until 08 October, but as one of the organisers, I had decided to ride it early to get the checkpoint photos for ...
