Well, I test rode a Honda and didn't buy one...
In February a certain V-twin departed to become an Aussie's NZ bike.
|Munching miles is where it's at!|
Looking back at my posts it looks like not much happened in March. Having only one bike was a bummer, must have been waiting for something...Still got out for a nice little scoot on some favourite roads.
|Smile for the camera darling|
In April I was a little disappointed when the Connie's battery died...
|Batteries these days...|
|I miss that bike...|
With a new bike in the shed there was farkling to be done (and it still continues)...
|Seems to go alright.|
The Connie finally got a run in June and it was up to some of the other guys to bring along their new and exotic machinery...
|"Keep this end pointing forward"|
|"It's crap in the mud"|
But the Tenere also got a couple of rides in, one slightly unplanned.
|A bike, a bridge and some sun|
In July I tried to sort out the recent favouritism and got both bikes out on the same day...
|Tag hunter extraordinaire|
|Gravel eater extraordinaire|
Oops, it looks like that in August I reverted to favouring the new bike again with a couple of outings to test the newly fitted E-07's. One ride was frostier than the other.
|I like heated grips and I cannot lie|
|We had a better summer during winter|
The Connie got some loving in the form of new tyres and a service and even got treated to a little exercise for a change.
|Ain't she lovely!|
|Dang that means I'm 10 years older too...|
In October I wimped out on the NI1600 and instead hung out at the HQ while others got sore butts. At least the Connie got a run up to Turangi and back - teasing her?
|Nev, Graeme & Phil|
|Colin finishing just after Glen (go Yamaha!)|
And the Tenere went on her first big adventure.
|Favourite pic of the trip|
November means another wee ride that the Connie always enjoys.
|Team Kawasaki out there doing it!|
|How could I forget the Forgotten Highway?|
Usually there's a few Toy Runs/Charity rides on in December, but last year I only managed to take in the Coast to Coast.
|Everyone needs a Kawasaki!|
|Dang gates spoil all the fun...|
