Thanks Aslan. I hear you're a bit of a hard man too. How's your shoulder hanging in? Are you back on the bike yet?

Arty crap. Love those spokes....



Bike is still sitting above a puddle of oil. I'd better get something done about it soon.

Cheers Bart- just saw your post - thanks - shoulder seems OK - took the GS out on Friday last - around through Hinakura, Admiral Road etc to the Gladstone Pub. Will see the surgeon again this Thursday where I'm hoping he'll be happy to 'sign off on his handiwork - job done!

Certainly the metalware in shoulder sets off the security scanner at the Prison when I visit as part of my work :)

KTM. It shakes them loose, then resets them, all at 5k rpm. You must have been using a fast shutter speed.

Got until the end of the working week.

I guess I'd better do something about this. It's been almost 2 months...

Just try & get into the habit of closing the garage door EVERY night & put a brick on top of the compost bin lid. We had a possum do something similar to our garage. Stunk for weeks.

At least yours didn't leak all over the caliper. bi-annual event for mine

Took some big hits on the MMMMM. I hit a log in the middle of a forestry track at about 90kmh. Tried to lighten the front, but hit bloody hard.

Piss weak DR front. Should do something about it, but it's not the kind of bike to go throwing wads of cash at. I class it as an 'in between' bike. Does the job until I can afford something better.

Ripped the fork off and took it to the shop today. I walked as it was a nice day. Got some real funny looks walking up the road with an almost gun looking thing in my hand.

Mad

Makairo - Akitio - Dannevirke (though we didn't quite make it to Akitio)

A group of us met at the west enterance to the Makairo track. The road was closed, but we went for a nosey anyway. A digger had been through messing things up. We found Marty near the start....



He'd already had a look and said it was fine (even though he was a bit stuck).

I wasn't stopping for anything as I had a roady rear on. I managed to get to some firm ground after a couple of km (yes, I'm carrying fuel for Wade again).





I walked back quite a way to get some shots of the guys coming through

Steve on the supertanker



Marty on the 690



Ricky on the 990



Wade, cheating on the 530. Previous to seeing the state of the track, he'd offered to swap bikes for a bit. He renegged on the deal once he saw the slop and the state of my back tyre.



The track in it's more normal state







Oranges at half time



End of the track

Wade playing around



Bloody orange things. They're everywhere...







The Little Manuhara









Pongaroa Pub for lunch



Burgers as big as your head....and I took a packed lunch. I'll know next time.





Steve and Marty took off after lunch. Three of us went on to have a look through Spur road. I didn't take many pics as these guys were on my tail the whole way. Ricky was a hell of a quick on the 990, and Wade's just a madman on the 530.

Here's a few of them with the Three Kings in the background.







The second closed road of the day, Puketoi Road. Again, we went to see why. A couple of slips, but nothing to hold up a bike.



After this we headed for home. An awesome day out. I didn't realise how unfit I was. Sore for a couple of days afterwards, but good to get out of the house.

Pic of the day...

Ranges Ride

Ross (Waipukbiker) sorted out a ride the other weekend. The idea was to explore the Central Hawkes Bay roads that loop into the Ruahine Range. Most are in and back as you have to return to the main road to get across rivers.

Amazing day in the Hawkes Bay



XRJohnny's new toy



Salisbury Road





Dust





KTM advertisement





BMW advertisement



Smedley Station. Awesome rolling hill country.



Clowning around



I wonder if you could squeeze a 650 motor in there...







More to come
