Just a short Sunday morning ride after a catch up with Jono and Justin. Jono has sold his Tenere and replaced it with two bikes – a Ducati 750 sport and a Yamaha YZF 1000 Thunderace. The Ducati is immaculate and the Yamaha is good to go, also in great condition. I had to drive to Justin’s place as my BMW K1200’s battery was flat, and Jono let me ride the Yamaha. We met at the Maraetai Wharf Cafe as usual for a coffee at the beach side. Justin and I then rode the Clevedon Loop. I was impressed with the Yamaha, plenty of power and neutral handling.
Justin and I stopped on the coastline on the way home to enjoy the beauty of the Hauraki Gulf looking towards Waiheke Island to the north-east and the Coromandels in the distance. 17 degrees warm. Good company, nice ride. Is winter over?
WOW Jono. Fantastic decision. Welcome back to the real roads. Looking forward to great rides with great mates. When is Hayley going to ride the Ducati????
