I went to my first Waikato VCC motorcycle run.
Rode down to Swarfie's place where I got 'second breakfast' and tagged along behind the Velocettes.
The run started at the Cambridge VCC club which is a real blast from the past if you ever worked for the Govt.
Run went up to Huntly to the mining museum where a lunch was provided in a most scenic setting.

I can't remember when I saw one of these this nice.

Someone wanted to make this #7 ( the agreed amount of bikes allowed)

Lemans 1..numnumnum

Square Four.


Iain on his 16H, we never got them during the war, this was Indian country, imported from Aussie.

Pete on his Velo.

Some English BMW knockoff...

The recently re-commissioned R90s, clocked up about 1200 kms in the last 3 weeks.

Swarfie showing what slippy clutches and poor steering lock can do.

Ah they don't do pubs like this no more...no craft beer or aioli dip

" Well we have Waikato, Waikato, Waikato or Waikato"

I've only ever seen them in blue in the drum braked model - looks lovely

I remember being taken on the back of an early drum braked mach one when I was 16 and all I'd ridden was a ct90 - holy faaaaaark that thing went like the clappers

Well it's not even stored at my house at the moment. It's at a mates place as we ran out of room with 7 bikes, the R80 sidecar, and a mono wheel trailer all in a single garage, not including the Ducati. The V strom and the GN250 are on trade me finishing tonight so hopefully they will both go. That will allow me to get to the DS80 which I need to fix the accelerator cable on then that can go on trade me too.

Then I can bring the Ducati home.
