Right now this is a bumper issue because I'm away next week, somewhere out the back of Waiouru fishing. 5 days and 4 nights of rafting camping and fishing with some old and some new friends. My BMW's in for new Ohlins front and rear and my Husky 610E adventure bike should be back up and running this week too. Plus, plus my Moto Guzzi Daytona 4 valve is nearly ready for powder coat, and paint and the last little touch ups before the grand reveal. Still working the color scheme, but I have one of the hottest young guns in NZ painting at the moment doing the work, so really looking forward to working through the designs with him.

Go grab a coffee and get ready for an hour or so of quiet solitude and man enjoyment.( plus 1 girl enjoyment)







I love these old 916 racers, they truly revolutionized the superbike world of racing


See that's what happens when your shirt is too long, you cant stretch out to get out of the way of what ever that is, is it a goat or a very large sheep?. Fuck it gives him a bunt when you watch it, he flies for a good few meters, anyways he's out of there exit stage right.




Man food, it's all here, bacon, cheese, bread, big knives, coffee



The shuttle is the most powerful thing that man has ever made



Had a big discussion over a few beers the other night about what constitutes food and proper food. This image is NOT PROPER FOOD, even though it looks like it. Why? It has chick peas in it, if it had bloke peas then OK, but this is not man food.



Mr. Stewart in a sandwich of noise and spinning wheels
This must be a pick up truck phnaaarrr

What a lovely Mustang, love the interior



Yamaha M1 engine exposed. Looks like the titanium elves have been hard at work too.
 This is man food despite the fact that it's sitting on a bed of greens, that's OK because you don't have to go that far down.

 I would be happy here
 Check out the percussion in the water, I wouldn't want to be on those hills
You know those night thermal images that they show of the Muricans blowing the shit out of those goat farmers in long shirts at night and you see the ground around the little white running men bursting up all over the place, this is what they are shooting!!!!! Fuck check out the size of that shell will you, no wonder they get blown to pieces


 Pikes peak, they way it was.


Cry.......
Amazing photo

Cool pic before the candle is lit




 Well hello to you two too..........................




 You know that I love good paint, this is good paint
You'd need an iron horse arse for this seat.



 I like this Moto Guzzi, it has attitude in spades

Rossis many helmets on show







 Check out how clean this engine work is.

 I followed one of these into town the other day, it looked like a handful, check the front forks, obviously got his geometry wrong
 Now this is nice
Coffee and cigarettes perfect







 Brand new barn find, yeehaa wouldn't that be nice



Sophia was/is beautiful no doubt


 Some guys just have real nice taste that's all, simple





DRILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Another discussion we had was the putting of fruit into beers, "oh it's got good citrus notes, and you can taste the lemon, or the gooseberry". be fucked there's only two things that go into a glass of beer, that's beer and your top lip, end of story, the only good thing in beer is beer. Are we clear?










I found this photo, well quite riveting actually


Check the lamination work on this

 Nice wee time piece









Classic beauty

































The original fuel lines too
 Always liked these little 750F1 Racers


 V Tidy MV
