Well here we are again, had a mammoth week with a great ride around the East cape with some of the best buggers you could ever wish to ride with. We had the worst weather that I have EVER ridden in, 130KPH cross winds and pissing down rain, at one stage I was on the otherside of the road for a good 100 meters and had no way of getting back, it was pretty hair raising and downright scary. My mate Mike on a Ducati Scrambler had to stop, it was just so dangerous. Trucks and cars moving in all directions as the gusts took hold. But the moment we got out of that, the weather was amazing and the ride around the cape was incredible. I haven't been that way since I was 15-16 on a 50cc Suzuki!!!!!. Watched the MotoGp to the sounds of an Irish band in a pub in Napier, which was funny, the music matched the racing. Had a great party in Tauranga and then the next day back home, so all done in 3 days 1700 kilometers. The Diavel certainly is a great bike to ride this country on. Any how back to the blog enough of me. A great collection of images this week, I've said it before but we are blessed with engineers, artists, mechanics, and motorcyclists who fuck around with their motors, and give us great things to want, lust and be inspired by. Here it is.
Just because it's a great image
It all seemed so simple back then
Gavin the seagull gets a nerf, Mark Marquez got one a week later, good job.
I don't know what it is about scooters, but it seems to bring out the best in people.
Perhaps it might be time to customise my Diavel.
They are actually pretty bloody good.
A bit too bling for me.
