Not the best weather for it but today Brian & I took the Hondas up to Napier & back for a quick visit with my folks. We left Palmy in okish weather but by the time we stopped for gas in Danniverke we'd hit our first patch of rain.
Leaving Danniverke we headed out through Matamau, Makotu and Ormonville before taking the back road past Takapau and into Waipuk. Then we turned further East at Waipawa to take us to Patangeta (it absolutely bucketed down through here) and up Middle Road to Havelock North and finally Napier.
After a nice hot lunch with the olds and a bit of mucking around with the bikes in the shed we suited up again for the ride home. After gassing up in Hastings we hit highway 50 and battled with the wind all the way back. More showers also added to the excitement.
Not the best day for it but still a nice ride - be even better once we see some proper summer.
