Who's riding this weekend? I need a day out.

Sprinkling of snow up Takapari today. Not that that's where I want to go. Just saying. Why you might ask. Because I had a fairly average day at work today, and can just see the road snaking along the top of the range from my office window. A welcome distraction from the emails and phone calls. Not that I actually spend a lot of time in my office. I find any excuse I can to be somewhere else, which luckily isn't difficult in a large factory.

weather looks better Sat/Sun, but any day will do. One day for jobs around the house, one for family, and one for riding. I love 3 day weekends.

I'm riding up in the hills on Saturday (you are welcome to join us - we might have another go at the track we rode last weekend) and I will need Sunday to put the klr back together so Monday is my only real option.

I'll give you a call on Sunday to see where we are at.

Sorry Mark but I'm now busy on Monday, so will go for a small local ride Sunday. I might head to the coast and do some more photography stuff.

As for the riding in the hills, I think I'd need a dedicated dirt bike. Hours of pushing and shoving a DR650 through that snotty shit does not appeal to me. Perhaps if I had something with half the weight, and sharp tyres, and I was a bit fitter....

Edit. plan may have changed yet again. I'll give you a call.

MAD loop Sunday 30th. Any Wellington people keen? I'm trying to sort a start time. Likely to be 10am at the start of the Makairo track (9.30 in Dannevirke).

If no one's keen, we may start earlier.

I'm still waiting on parts, so can't be definite. I'd like to say I'd be there but unless they are here by Friday..

Got Gus running acceptably (but still not brilliantly), so will see you at Makairo. The 1st shipment of parts have come in, including some extra needle jets to try.

Any Wellington Riders interested, meet at Caltex Rimutakas at 8.30 am to meet Bart at Makairo at 10.00am.
