    I will be at the BP on time and will be riding off at 7pm, heading towards Tuakau first.
    Quiet night it will be, probably end up at the Te Kawhata Pub.

    Well the ride left a bit later than 7pm, about 7.10pm, thought there were a couple of lost looking souls circling the car park looking for the SATNR ride, but no, waiting for their mates to come up, so they could ride to Pokeno.
    Weather: Excellent.
    Road Conditions: Amazing.
    Traffic Density: So, Lowwww.
    Route, short and sweet.
    Next week should see the return of one or two of the older hands from Hol's and time away.
    See you all then.

    It's been hectic at work this week. Seeing as a lot of people have decided they will take another week off without notice. (Not me)

    Wots this old stuff.

    I'm back at work next week (sort of) and am planning to come. The R1 survived the trip around East Cape and just needs chain lube and an oil change.

    Kia ora everyone,

    my name is Álvaro and I'm new to this forum. Actually I'm quite new to the motorbike world. It's something that have been going through my head for quite some time and finally I've decided to get my license this Saturday. I thought that a bike would be a good way to enjoy the awesome NZ scenery on weekends and a handy way to commute the rest of the week.

    I was suggested to join this group as I will need help to learn, especially at first. To be honest, I'm a little bit scared so having someone to help me during my first months would be a big plus. I've been told you get together weekly.

    Also tips on the first LAMS motorbike are appreciated I've seen that there're so many options (sports bikes, step-throughs,...)...

    Regards,
    Álvaro

    Once you pass your learners look into the riderskills courses as they teach you a lot, Bronze is only $20 for a day course

    As for bikes it depends a lot on your size and use what you get

    Anyone riding tonight, should be a good night for it. KTM headlight is now fixed and still going after a few day rides, I have fitted new tires that and they still have air in them after a week so must be OK

    The Valkyrie has been getting some attention too so almost ready to ride that too

    I am planning to come tonight if I can finish work in time. It has taken CourierPost 6 days to deliver a package from Hamilton to Auckland, which I had planned to install for a client on Monday. So I have to get it working today.

    You need to get one of those Honda Holdwing or BMW 1600 tourer couches. They come with wheels and wakey wakey alarms.

    Well, it didn't start well when they didn't include the default password in the user guide. Muppets.

    I did get it going eventually, but was too late to make it to Papakura in time.

    Safer - no worries. Sometimes these things happen. Other times the weather isnt suitable or whatever. We dont show either.

    Nice pic of the bike Leathel.

    I did enjoy the ride and the bike maintenance stuff, way different to the usual day job.

    Old Guy, just read your thread about stolen bikes.
    That's a shame.
    Plenty of them that dont give a monkey's about other people's gear. And PC gone mad, hit them with a wet bus ticket.......

    Anyhow hopefully you can get it sorted and a bit of Karma wouldn't come amiss.

    C u soon hopefully, you can compare notes, with the other traille riders, it's a growing trend.
    And maybe solve the numb arse syndrome.

    Not going to say much at this time, still a long ways to go. Here's hoping.
