Rescue Helicopter practice ride

Went out with a bunch of KiwiBikers to check out the proposed route for the Rescue Helicopter ride coming up on the 28th. It was good see a reasonable bunch of bikers turn up and to check out Menie's new paint job in the flesh.

Without giving away the route (not sure how public that is yet) we had a pretty decent ride in good conditions except for an unfortunate incident when a VTR pilot left the road and had a hard landing into a bank. Luckily there were no truly gruesome injuries although he did get a ride to the hospital in an ambulance and is having a pin put into a broken leg. Hope he's up and around as soon as possible. The VTR's a bit second hand but fired up so it could be parked in a farmer's shed before being rescued properly.

Not a nice thing to happen and it put a bit of a damper on what was otherwise a pretty nice little ride in the countryside. Hope things go better on the 28th.
