    Had a good ride today, though no takers at such short notice. It was my first time out in a month and possibly the last chance for another month. There’s just too much stuff on at the moment.

    A big loop East of Hamilton and then following the patch of blue sky led me to The Bike Shed at the Okoroire Pub.

    On the way I made some new friends

    Lunch was bloody good, 3 pieces of fish even in the fish and chip meal

    Caught up with @Pieter-Smit there with his awesome R1200GS sidecar and another local member.

    I also found a new gravel road to check out and track on the GPS, though I didn’t go up it. Piakonui Rd in Richmond Downs, sort of North West of Matamata.

    Is anyone interested in a mid week lunch in Central Hamilton once a month or something?

    We had a good ride to Fletchers bay and discussed a west coast ride down to Awakino stay over night probably in February as we are apon the silly season . Where would we stay any good lodges or such in the area

    After the success of the Fletchers Bay ride we are planning another ride to Mokau running down the Raglan coast then returning back thru Waitomo and home to Aucks . Hopefully the boys from BOP will intercept our route and join us . Looking at staying at one of the motorcamps overnight in Mokau . Planning to ride late Jan or early Feb

    Peter, At Mokau there is the Seaview Hoilday Park and the Whitebait Inn ($10 sites per night). Both appear to have cabins for those that way inclined 😉

    This trip heading south from Raglan and the timing both sound like a great plan Peter – already on my to do list – so please note me as a keen (tent accommodation) starter.

    Good stuff Scott this time we will have to be a little more organised an fit in some socialising I’ve got some great lies to tell hahaha . Would have done it this year but with two rounds of Vinduro an the Burt plus hopefully a short Tiki tour around the top of the south would have struggled to fit in earlier . I think we may have a few more this time around a few mates who missed out last time should have their shit sorted Bruce has already planned a route be good if the BOP lads met us at Raglan or Oparau.

    If I’m free I am definitely keen (another tenter). Raglan looks like a good spot to meet up. That part of the North Island is pretty much a mystery to me, so eager to explore…
