    Well no one yelled out so Jennifer and I and Nigel had a cruisy ride out to Raglan for lunch.

    While out there we ran into our mate Garfield on his very nice CX500 Turbo

    When we got back Jennifer took the V-Strom around the block for the first time and came back exclaiming ‘Why are you selling my bike!’. The V-strom is the first physically large big bike she has ridden and it fits her like a glove. She can even flat foot it where I can’t quite.

    @facebook-keithfenwick11 mentioned he was going to Nikau Caves this morning so I thought I’d shoot up there and meet him seeing as we hadn’t met before.

    After breaking the DR out of the local garage with a new WOF I shot up there and met Keith. After a fantastic Eggs Benny and a great chat we headed south down the coast then to Ngaruawahia were we went out separate ways.

    Sharn, Craig, and I met up at BP Rototuna at 8 this morning and headed to Nikau Caves Cafe where Keith Fenwick was waiting for us.
    After a great brunch we covered the Te Akau Coast Inland Route and Klondyke Road before heading to the dunes at Port Waikato.

    A KTM being repaired.

    Great views on the Te Akau Coast Inland Route.

    Soft sand and my DR don’t mix

    The supermodel and the super tanker

    Keith’s 690 and Craig’s WR450

    There’s a TKC80 under there.

    I am not sure what bent the plate, the only thing I can think of is maybe a rock or branch flicked up and hit it, or I cut a corner a bit sharper than I thought I did.

    Nice Eddie.

    That trench you dug… you’re in the wrong business…

    Oh that bloody sand dune… next time, you’ll see you’ll all see…
