OK, here we are again, bit of a strange week this week, all sorts of stuff non motorcycle related, so that has taken a bit of my time. Spent 4 hours yesterday alone just getting my 15 minute on line passport sorted out for my trip to Japan in a couple of weeks. Just as well i checked the passport eh?. Bike sales are a bit slow it has to be said, but with all this rain it's no wonder really. managed to take the ZRX for a ride up to the Auckland motorcycle show, that was a good event, and I meet quite a few of you readers and purveyors of fine things up there, so it was great to catch up and have a chat. I have to say, I've done a shit load of riding in the rain over the years with a few in London as a dispatch rider, and I've always said that if you see me riding the other way that means its raining up ahead and I'm off to the nearest bar. Well leaving Te Aroha on Saturday, it threw it down, we got down the 35Kph it was that heavy, even my Dianese D dry suit took in some rain and that takes some doing!!!! Fortunately it passed and the rest of the ride was pretty good. It was nice to get out with my mates and have a bit of a cruise ( no speed limits were broken haha). Really amazed at the quality of the some of the builds and the restorations going on fantastic work that's for sure. I meet one bloke who said to me that this blog had changed the way he thinks about bikes, life, and his general attitude to getting on I guess you could say, so that was pretty nice, good to know that the this site effects people in different ways. And met another bloke who went out and bought a TAG!!!!! Funny, he didn't buy me one, but as I said I'm off to Japan in a couple of weeks and I will get one there. Anyways here's this week collection, enjoy and ride fast.
Reminds me of my dispatch days
