HI there to all of you. Well a pretty good start to the year, plenty of time off, and plenty of bike riding that's for sure. I was riding ho9me from Taupo last week, and missed the turn off to my home, then I hit the next town and missed the next turn off to my home. I was thinking to myself "where am I going". I ended up at the local KTM shop , about 120 k's from home. Within 10 minutes of being in the shop the deal was done. I had traded the Diavel on a new KTM1290GT. I'm not bull shitting but I had absolutely no idea that that was what I was going to do, but there you go. This makes 107 personal bikes for me now since I started riding. I'm loving the KTM coming home on the Kaimai's it was right to the edge of the tyres straight away. Hmm a radar detector is now required. Plenty of bikes out on the road enjoying this fantastic weather which is always good to see. Pity the Harley riders are to staunch to wave back, but you have to keep trying. Noticed too that a lot more cars are pulling over just enough to let you by, which is great to see as well. Always give those guys a wave. I also saw a car directly in front of the Police flashing his lights frantically which made me laugh. Good to see people looking after one another. So one with another weeks installment for you all to enjoy. Keep it safe and ride fast.
