No way Jose'

As I said, got me a new girlfriend, as is typically, (and I know as I type this, I'm gunna get lashed) cheap to procure, but bloody expensive to maintain.
Much the same as my Troopie.

But as Bob Hudson sang "never let a chance go by"

Ian has retired for the night, still suffering jet lag, (just returned from Veitnam) but I'll pass on your regards

Still got a spare bed in Invercargill!!!

Hi Mate, are you still going to be in the area Friday night? May be keen on a ride & catching up for a beer if you haven't headed off south by then.

Cheers
Clint

Bugger, I was afraid that something like this might happen. The warranty must have run out just before Katikati. Sorry about that. Thanks for supporting the NZ economy, we sure need it.

I was having my beauty sleep. I'm here at Ian's tomorrow, leaving Sat morning, booked on Bluebridge 1.30pm out of Picton, staying at the Raymar motel Blenheim Sunday.

Sorry Clint, your red's are safe for a while longer.

But don't worry, I'm here till Febuary, and intend to spend more time exploring the Nth then the Sth, so there will be plenty of time to catch up for a drink.

Tough titty!

Finally got the bike all sorted out. Now registered and insured, comprehensive with STAR $500 pa, new battery( current charging system OK) fairing and hand protectors fitted. Ready to rock and roll.

Leave tomorrow, guess what? bloody rain predicted, booked into a motel in Taihape tommorow night, AND Mt Rupehu is seriuosly rumbling and I have to ride pass it on Hwy 1. Knowing my luck the bastard will blow as I ride pass, less then 20k's away.

My last words may well reiterate the immortal words of the mayor of Hiroshima "what the f**k was that"

Oh well, such is life

On the road again.
