    TRMCC ride to Matamata had to consider debris from recent storm, but we managed to avoid the major slips.:p
    Trip down had my wallet come out of my glovebox causing a 22 card pickup across 20m :scream:.
    Luckily a rider behind me pulled me over to let me know (found sunglasses case jammed in the mechanism).
    We stopped at the local Triumph dealership which was next door to the Top Pub :cool:

    NV motorcycles had a good range (stock photo, as I had to catch up after wallet retrievals)

    Thanks for the ride report, @Dartplayer! Yikes, though...what a debacle with your wallet and cards. I hope you were able to retrieve them all. That lunch looked delicious and it looks like The Top Pub & Eatery is a great ride destination. :):heart_eyes:

    I was in Matamata a few weeks ago, working in hamilton and went to Hobbiton, well you have to really. In a car but the roads around there make you wish you had a bike,

    Food is good, but I could have shared the plate for lunch. :pGreat back roads all around.
    Yes, I did manage to find all the cards, just annoying to stop on a group ride, but managed to catch them up.:cool:

    Agree @crispey, the surrounding roads are far better than many areas for condition and riding. :heart_eyes: A group favourite on-route to central or southern regions :sun:
