Anyone happen to have an extra set of boots, size 9 or so, L helmet, and a bag system laying around?


Don't think I'll be able to make the ride south towards fairlie since the bike is already south of there. But am interested in the hotel for sure.

Anybody driving down towards fairlie and passing by Christchurch in the process that has room for a well behaved yank and a rucksack?

Additional to my PM, I have a large motor cross helmet you can borrow if you can't rustle up an adventure lid.

I assume the bike will be arriving sometime on friday? You could send it to Mackenzie Country Motors, 2 Regent Street, Fairlie,my bother runs the garage there and will not mind (I will let him know to expect it).

Dusty Butt???

I some how don't think so, try Icy Butt.

These photo's were taken about 20 mins ago, outside my motel room at Methven. I believe that this is the Mt Hutt and the Southern Alps. It has pissed down here all day, and when the rain went and the clouds dispersed, this was my sight as I strolled back from the Brown Pub, BTW there are about 6 DB's riders here in Methven

F**K me, here we go again, I can't put up the photo's direct, just click on the bullshit to show the photo's

Mate if you were back home you'd be complaining about the heat, over hear your complaining about the snow. Bloody winger

Yep it is going to be a bit interesting. From what I can tell no snow down around Central Otago - yet. Awakino Saddle will be interesting if there is snow but the rest of the first day should be OK regardless, though maybe wet.

Cheers

Fricking excellent video TA.
I couldn't get over how blue the sky looked.

What was the button on the left hand side you pressed occasionally - horn/ kill switch?
