    Good day out to enjoy some Autumn weather while it stays nice. Coffee and breakfast at the Indian dealership was great, waiting for the guys to turn up

    Used the motorway to head north before heading west to come back east. Mix of urban and rural highways and tight forestry roads.

    The weather held out and although we saw some wet road, we didn’t get any rain.
    Good group of 7 mixed bikes, with a new Trident being run in :p

    Good fish and chips, pizza, and a range of beers on tap (Asahi) and stubbies (Corona) :p

    The next stage of the lockdown easing starts on Monday when groups of 6 can meet outdoors and you should minimise travel as opposed to staying at home here though as you know I won't be riding for some time :(

    Looks like a terrific day out, Dartplayer! Thanks for sharing your day through photos, maps, and stories. :heart: It's lovely to "ride" New Zealand vicariously with you. :) Enjoy that autumn weather while it lasts! :sun::cool:

    Been many times, Dougie, but only once on a bike. Had the luxury of working across the country.:p
    Would love to tour and many of the club have mainly on Adventure bikes. It would have to be a cruiser for me :cool:

    Agree @Sandi T, I started using the site to see Northern summer rides, so enjoy reading and sharing.
    When you are unable to go, as you and @littleade are currently, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy “being there” in spirit :grinning:
