after some consultation with der stuka i have decided to open up a seperate thread for kiwi rides. I posted the first one in the kiwi link here;( permalink 10) http://vfrworld.com/forums/australia-new-zealand/20277-updated-kiwi-list-sign-here.html so from this thread i hope we all will be continuing to post ride updates etc here....:thumbsup: coming up this week end is the CYCLE SPOT HONDA grand opening of their newly updated destination store, which i will cover. so if any other kiwi VFR'ers are going feel free to let me know. the grand opening doo is on from 1730 to 2030 hours (5.30 - 8.30pm) and there is also a ride organised by Honda riders club on the saturday too, leaving from the dealership and heading back there after 2 hours or so. there are some prizes etc organised for attendee's. So please do take the time if you can to stop on your ride,take a pic and then post it here with a few thoughts.like this... here we are outside 'patricks pie shop'. Home of the legendary pies that he has won countless awards for... Sorry the wrapper is all thats left!...but definatly worth a visit when your heading into tauranga via the Karangahake gorge.
