Well, here we are again, another installment of all things bike related. Shit it seems New Zealand is a very little motorcycling place at the moment. Motofest has come and gone, it was a fantastic meeting, Ducati have had their annual rally, The Italian motorcycle guys have had their annual rally, Indian have done the same. I drive from Tauranga to Taupo most weekends and there are more and more bikes on the road and travelling in groups as well. My group the Lizards have finished their road racing for the season, the 'last of the summer wine" ride is being planned to catch those last rays of warmth before the bite of winter sets in, so looking forward to that, we are going up market and the first stop for the night is Taihape. We don't do things by halves that's for sure haha. I had planned on attending two international motorcycle shows this years, but my plans have been scuppered somewhat by outside influences, this pisses me off, but it is what it is. All in all though it's been a great summer for motorcycling, great rides have been done, and some fantastic racing has been seen. Shit our young guys are so fast, I'm loving that aspect of our sport. A young Wainuiomata boy Shane Richards is just on fire, so back to the states for him again this season. Keep an eye out for him, he is quick. Just about to start a real nice little SR400 cafe custom for a client, so I'll have to move the ST4S off of the bench for a bit. Anyways here's the weeks installment, go get a bourbon, a pen and paper and start planning your winters in the shed.
Lots of Guzzi's in here this week, it's the way it happens I guess. Hope you all enjoyed Carbonart motorcycles this week. I really don't know how I find the time to do this, but I do, so all good to you I guess. Have a great week, catch you all next week, be safe, ride fast, don't let things get you down, and enjoy every moment on or with your bike.
