Default Re: Yamaha T700 and a Moto Guzzi for fun.

In typical NZ fashion, the weather has changed. However still got in an hour or so on the Red and White bus.

There is a snow capped mountain behind the clouds.







Fairly lush and green around here.





A peek of the sea in the distance, SH 45 the coastal surf highway runs down this coastline.



The cloud covered mountain provided a nice background for the little red bus!



OMG, feast your eyes on the costs...



A loop back towards New Plymouth, stopping to admire the views.





Hope you've enjoyed a few snaps of my travels!

Cheers Doug

Snow capped mountain, country lanes through a tunnel of trees, New Plymouth coastal views, methinks that was Mount Taranaki in the background in pic 1. Then again, could be anywhere within a 200km of New Plymouth.

Two NZ trips for Doug in one year, must be making some serious money at work these days.


Post more pics please Doug.

Read elsewhere that the T700 launch in Wellington was a major-waffle-and-go-to-sleep affair.... folks left before the actual unveiling.

Snow-capped mountains sounds bloody great
