|BRR bike parked next to a BRRBT Connie|
We were led (very slowly) from Himatangi, across to Sanson, Feilding and finally Ashhurst before crossing over to Woodville via the Saddle (more very slow riding). In Woodville we gate crashed their Xmas parade (as usual) before parking up for our BBQ lunch.
|Nice little Impulse - nearly as nice as my old one...|
|Team Kawasaki waiting patiently|
|Do 2 x 660 Teneres make a Super Tenere?|
|The cruiser boys were out in force|
Along the way I did catch and pass a few others who had the same idea as me. I still can't get over how poorly some cruisers are ridden. The owners seem surprised when their bikes don't go around corners properly and they end up on the wrong side of the road - only to repeat at the next corner. Oh well, the Connie leaves them behind fairly quickly...
At the beach I joined a few of the others who also choose to get there early and parked up for a cold drink and a snack.
|Gotta be early to get a good park...|
|An even wider mobile chicane|
|Still hardly anyone else at the beach|
|Shirt might possibly serve me well as a tent|
Nearing Dannevirke I still had plenty of gas so didn't stop and made for Woodville. A few more spits and a slow cruise got me the and it was finally time to gas the bike for the short hop home.
