Sunday Pootle

Funny sort of weather today - it couldn't make up it's mind on whether to rain or be sunny. In the end it decided on a bit of both with a good dash of wind thrown in for good measure. Anyway, can't let the funny weather stop the fun so I met up with Sarge, Sarah and Bazza at Ashhurst for a wee pootle.

As it turned out Bazza's bike was having some electrical issues and he decided that he should get it home while it could still be started so the rest of us decided to follow him home just to make sure that he had no further problems. He led us off through the gorge and then some of the back roads close in the ranges to his place.

After a stop at Bazza's the three of us headed off back to the main road and then turned off at Oringi to take in Oringi and Jackson Road which is a really nice little ride. The wee Honda got blown around a bit but it was a lot of fun. At Hopelands Road Sarge headed for home while Sarah and I continued on to Pahiatua to take the track home. The track has taken a bit of a hammering in some of the slower corners but was still a lot of fun and a great way to end the ride.

Think I got the map right...
