Well that was a few days and a half wasn't it? Still seems so unreal, that something like that could happen here. It doesn't seem real because all I am seeing of the Christchurch atrocities is on the news, and it seems that every time we see shit like this, it's in some other country and really doesn't effect us all the same, but now it's on our back door step. I do love the way Kiwis gather round though when things are tough and offer assistance, it's something that we have that I think no other country has, and perhaps that is what makes us different to the rest. So there you go, I've said my piece on this atrocity, this terrorist attack, and i am sure that our thoughts over the past few days have been with the people who suffered at the hands of this idiot.
So on with the weekend, I am meeting up with a couple today Rod and Jayne. I met these two at the IOM 2 years ago, I was sickeningly sick and basically spent nearly all my 6 days at the Arundel Hotel in bed. Well these guys looked after me, treated me with kindness and to this day I have never forgotten them. So they are here in NZ and I am going to meet with them, so quite excited by that prospect.
Bikes? Well the MHR is nearly back together, engine in, looking Sapristi nachos if I do say so my self, I love putting these things together, they are all clean and new and you dont get your hands dirty, kind of like a mini Kindig it Design show really. There are some images of the bike towards the end of this blog. It's a pretty eclectic mix of images this week, it's just how I surf the www. So here we go, enjoy, share, spread the word, have a great ride.
A Kiwi hard charger Robbie Deans last corner over the bridge onto the start finish line at Wanganui, he did this an awful lot, but the entire way through his career this was how he approached things, full steam ahead. hard bastard.
This is the MHR Millie ( one of the last 250 built) that I am currently building, it will be up for sale in about 4-5 weeks, so if anyone is interested give me a call. Don't just send me a message saying "How much". If your serious we will both know.
Electrics going back in now
So there you go, that's this weeks blog, all up to date, present and corrected. Have a great week, enjoy your mates and that warm afterglow of a great ride and a nice JD and ice. See you.
