Naki boys about to invade...

Phil / Dawn and Leanne and I are doing a ride after Christmas.

The cunning plan is;
  • Saturday 27th New Plymouth to Taupo via Wanganui, Pipiriki, Chateau etc (overnight in Taupo)
  • Sunday 28th Taupo to Waipawa (which is just out of Waipukurau) via various back roads
  • Monday 29th Waipawa to Martinborough following the coast as much as we can with a definite stop at Akitio (there used to be a multisport race that finished on the beach that I competed in a couple of times)
  • We then have four nights booked in Martinborough (29, 30, 31 and 1) and will use it as a base to explore the South Coast, Wairarapa etc.

Why am I telling you this?

Any one want to join us for any of those days, it would be great to see you!

Mike

We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender

We do not give in to invaders easily (unless they have alcohol)

I would expect nothing less from a Triumph owner!

And yes, there will be alcohol 😄

Keen to join us at all?

Will probably be heading home from Hawkes Bay Saturday or Sunday, will be on the KTM. I shall txt when I know what I'm doing when, might be able to catch up for a coffee along the way.

Cheers
Clint

Are you happy to have an Ozzie ride along?

Clint can vouch for me as house trained and have been known to enjoy a beer and or a glass of wine

Its perfect timing, I'm staying at Wanganui till Sunday 28th, and was wondering what to do, to fill in the days till News Eve, where I'm booked in at the Lake Ferry hotel for 2 days.

I'm on my trusty R80GS, self contained, happy to camp, pub it, whatever, and happy to ride tar or dirt.

More than happy for an Aussie to tag along ��

Meet up in Martinborough, how do you want to keep in touch?

I thought that with an old R80 smoke signals may have been more appropriate....

We are in a private villa.

I have sent my mobile number by PM.

Could be interested in a day ride in the rapa if some of the other WGTN based riders are going over.
