    Restarted electrical project. Finally

    traced all my previous work, not bad really for a novice.

    bit more planning now, got most of the main bits and pieces, just a few connections and fancy stuff to order once I figure out what I need.

    fuelled up now, ready to ride.

    whats the deal with the new ‘northwestern and tunnel’ at 80 another temporary limit changed to permanent by stealth.

    sounds like the smaller rubbish bins coming your way.

    Take it easy eldog, that's scary shit,

    Im out as well tonight WR got the dirt wheels back on, hope to do Waikaratu this Sunday if its fine will ride 450, if wet the 250 as its got new rubber on back, will be too much of a challenge in the wet for me on the 450 with it's well worn street legal knobby tires.

    Got so much going on this weekend, mostly family stuff, You know that feeling you get, when you have committed to something else, but you just can't remember till the day.

    Next week
    Why would you ride that long and that gnarly stuff if you don't have to, Its what we do, we love it.

    I hate February, too many events on around the same time.

    Sounds like good stuff, either way sounds like fun.

    yes, I know the feeling, that strange have I forgotten something? Feeling.

    see you there!


    AWS nice pic! Good practise stopping, parking and starting for me.
    good to see what I should have in case of something going down.

    Ok, we got the weather correct this weekend past.

    Ride again this Thurs and another crap weekend?

    been thinking about going to Paeroa Sunday, haven’t been to the races there yet.

    not sure if take care or bike, dunno how many dickheads will be on the road.......

    could always take a tank but that would be overkill.

    I added 20 kg last week to the pannier mount just to see how it felt. Apart from being only slightly more difficult to mount, once at speed felt only slightly more steady.


    Caseye, your suggestion may become reality...... I await your comments on Thurs as long as weather holds like last week

    Paeroa races are awesome, Bike parking will get you closer, not had an issue with bikes on the road to and from.

    My tire is fixed/ replaced....but modding a few other things while its apart but I should be ready for the weekend, if not thursday

    Ok, might see you there.

    everthing being equal.

    good news about tyre

    a few more farkles eh?

    they are on back burner for a bit as I have gotten motivated to finish off some work for a mate who passed away recently. All good.

    Working late tonight to get there tomorrow.

    Must remember to put fuel in

    And check air in tyres this week.

    Working with other people this week what a nightmare.
    Far too many know it all's. Funny how i deal with customer then get told what they want or can do from people not involved what So ever.
    Almost tossed it in.
    Be good to see other people not work related

    Great weather, great ride and length.
    felt like doing it in reverse on the way back (should have)

    leathel, listened to what you said.

    took a little detour.......on the way back, bored with motorway.
    yep you where right, something to work on.

    Caseye, I know it’s hard, let it go. It will fade away.

    Old Guy you still polishing the Buell?.....
