Well we steam roll right into the start of the year. I've started of with getting a new project as you know and am looking forward to my winter months when I will have a garage and a workshop, after all these years of not having one. I'd like to think that in garages all over the world right now there are guys like you and me planning and working on what they can do to there bikes. I must admit that I am stuck with the 900ss as to whether I keep it beautifully one hundred percent original or whether I cover it in nice period race parts from the day, or do I chop it and turn it into a real street cafe, I'll keep you all posted. Also just started arranging for our ride down the South island to a festival called Wings over Wanaka, looking forward to catching up with a lot of old mates and a thing called the Long Lunch, but more looking forward to riding with the crew, all very accomplished riders, it will be fun that's for sure. So I will keep you posted on new builds and long rides with mates, beers and friendship. That's the reason why this blog is here.
Some of my riding buds.
We had a great time in Wanganui, it all got rather messy later that evening at the after match function.
Had a good talk to this man Grant Dalton, he had the most lovely Suzuki. Have to say he needed to relax, fuck he was as wound up as his Rolex that's for sure. Seems funny to have the leader of our national Yacht syndicate and Americas cup racer sitting in pit lane working on his own bike, have to give that to him. We did notice when he was racing that he likes not having bikes around him, leaves a bit of gap between himself and the bike in front ( can't see that point).
