    Back from a nice wee toodle on some back roads I haven't been on for a while. One funnily enough is called Zig Zag Rd and it was. About 5kms or or so of gravel to tenderise the 10 year old tyres for another few hundred kms of tarmac use,. Brillient day for it. Loads of fun.

    Back last November I had some gold "SUPER SPORTS " decails made by Capture Signs on Tramaine Av. They were meant to go on the tank under the Honda badges as per original layout. Put a pair on both side covers and they don't look too bad and break up the black. If I deside to change my mind I have another pair to fit.

    Nice day out.

    380km round trip to see Dad over at Havelock North. Moderate rain and low cloud going over the Saddle Rd. Back route to Dannivagas coming out at the top pub just before the 100kph zone. Norsewood, Takapua Plains then HW50. Across to Waipawa via Ongaonga, then Camp David, Middle Rd on to Havelock North. Gasbagged with Dad for a few hours. He's toying with the idea of getting a GL1200 trike. After the visit off to the Z to gas up and met a chap from Nelson called Graeme who is is into bikes and wanted to know the history of my CB550. Half an hour later(it was the condenced version) I'm kitted up and off home to barmy Palmy. On up Burma Rd, which is gravel and over due for grading, over to Argle back to HW50 then the Takapua Plains. Played cat and mouse with a nicely set up Harley Sportster, without tassles thank goodness, to Dannivagas then wave him off at the top pub and back on to Topgrass Rd, Valley Rd, Saddle Rd and then home.

    Rained cats n dogs from Topgrass Rd through to Ashurst. A gentle reminder to respray my DryRider gear.

    Got another set of stickers from Sharon at Computer Signs in Bennet Str. They were not busy so made them up straight away. Only charged me $5 for the pair which was awesome.

    Fitted a couple of decals from the CB550 decal pack I got back in Nov last year. Tank filler cover flap warning decal and tyre pressure decal on the drive chain guard. Anoraks may moan about their locations but I couldn't care less. Click image for larger version.

    Popped in to para rubber to get some stuff and popped in to Super Cheap Autos to have a look around. My current favorite m/c oil is on special at $21 for a 4ltr pack. I'll pop in tomorrow to get a pack. While in town about 10 seperate individuals commented on how good the ol gal looks which made me smile. Must be doing something right....
