Default Yamaha T700 and a Moto Guzzi for fun.

Hi everyone,

Had the pleasure of an upgrade on a recent trip to NZ, needless to say, if I didn't have the pic's I wouldn't remember that it happened!



But it wasn't all play, we had to make a dent in to the bottle of Ardberg, that I'd picked up from duty free. Driving into Jim's driveway, to complete the task at hand.



Next morning we was hungry... the White Lady Burger Cart was parked at an all too familiar place...



Yes you guessed it...





So after a satisfactory quaffing it was off to Yamaha HQ for a T700 Party.

Auckland from the harbour bridge



Getting warmer...

Ohh er, looking quite nice in drab black!



An MC to extoll the virtues of this new machine.



Stephen Gall, and other notable Motocross legends were there.



And now for the reveal..





Would I sell the XT 660 R... probably

I had a plane to catch, so it was off to the Airport again..



Thankfully the weather was good.



And we only had to circle out at sea for 40 mins before landing.



I needed some light refreshments after all that.



Satisfactory and settled we were off to watch the All Blacks v the Wallabies and dinner to boot.
No one was here, they thought the Wallabies might win again...ha!

And next day I had a bike to pick up.

Not really sure of what is on offer, I knew of a V7, but the tyre was flat..

Bring this around and we'll put some air in.

Not being one to argue!





Then I was off.





From the Mountains to the sea, it really is stunning.









More to follow!
