I got test ride an XT660R and ride the Chateau to Plateau but the highlight was a nice quiet ride up Route 52 - one of my favourites. It was a beautiful day!
There's no question that the highlight of February was Scooter Bob's visit and the chance to show him the South Island on the TT2000.
In March I test rode an S10 and did some gravel riding and the highlight was our monthly BRRBT ride over the Annie.
April's top ride was a ride with Neil and Colin up the Paraparas - one of our favourite roads. It was a beautiful day too!
In may the BRRBT ride took us up a mountain and the BRR Adv ride was full of action.
In June the weather affected the Adv ride so much I had to break the story up into three parts!
In July we had a great BRRBT ride but my favourite ride of the month was a quiet little trip up the Pohangina Valley on the DL.
In August we had another great BRRBT ride where I got plenty of puncture fixing practice but one non-riding highlight was changing the tyres on the Connie and also replacing the batteries in the TPS sensors - something I'd never done and where Dad came in pretty handy...
In September Neil and I were glad to see the beginnings of Spring and had ourselves a fantastic gravel ride.
In October I was a little disappointed to miss out on completing the NI1600 but I did have a cracker of a ride up through the Waioeka Gorge - even if it rained for half of the ride and I got no pictures...
In November I did something a little out of the ordinary but the highlight was completing another C1K.
I ended the year with just a few small rides, the Coast to Coast being one of the best.
So, between the two bikes I managed to clock up around 19-20,000km and there are definitely plans afoot for plenty of riding in 2016...I can't wait...
