Unlikely to make it once again this year, tho' iI believe a couple or few of other from the western isle may. Toddle along. Trust you'll all have a good time in Mot this year. Do try the Kenepuru Rd north from Linkwater, and let me know how that road is doing (2,500 corners in 42km) - the Breva is likely to be more sprightly on that road than most. The scallops from Nelson are alone worth the trip - I've a good recipe.

I was born and bred in Golden Bay Mal, also known as Paradise. :thumb:  Breva has done the Queen Charlotte Drive road a few times now. Yep, goes good. :grin:  There is so much in the way of great rides up there it beggars belief. My front tire always wore with flat sides and jagged bits in the centre. :evil:

We still have a family holiday place up there in Golden Bay so after the rally will shoot back over the Hill (which has 365 corners) for a few days R&R and hopefully go fishing with my mate who lives about 500 metres away.  Still have a fizz boat and a scallop dredge up there, but sadly scallop dredging has been banned for the last few years.  I eat 'em all ways when we could get them.  We do have cockle, pipi and mussels available straight off the beach where we are, which is a bonus.

You will have to make it to a rally some time in the future, hopefully before I fall off the perch. :thumb:

Sorry to have been caught preaching to the "converted at birth" mob. Some people really have it tough.

Certainly do a report Dusty.  Will take phone and camera and see if we can get some shots. 

Our 'pooter is now back on line after it got electrical constipation after 10 years and wouldn't pass a current.  I have been researching for ages on bits to assemble what I wanted and it seems to be going well.  Hope my skills are up to the task. :grin:

Where do you hail from Cash?

I was born and bred in Golden Bay, just over the Hill (by about 52kms :thumb:).  I will be on the red Breva 750 (hopefully) with the big fluffy sheepskin to give my semi detached tendon a bit of relief.  Make yourself known.  I am based in the Top 10 Holiday Park with at least two others.

All going well I will be there, coming over from the North Friday morning.
I am looking forward to meeting the W/Guzzi people in person.
V711, silver but plan B is my 1100 sport also silver.
Got to get a ride in on the Blenheim to Nelson road before they drop the speed limit.

I am assuming you mean the Queen Charlotte Drive. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:  Great road!

Please make yourself known voncrump. Red B750 with fluffy sheepskin. :grin:  (if it makes it)

No, the main road between Nelson and Blenheim,  they are proposing dropping the max speed to 80 for its entire length.
It wont happen though, the out cry has been staggering!

Voncrump, if you come on the Sport go the main road. If you come on the V7 check out Queen Charlotte.  Lots of corners! But itll wear you out on a Sport!

I lived in  Blenheim for 12 years and did the Queen Charlotte drive often.
It was an about 100km loop from Blenheim around to Havelock and back.
I used to hum my V50 around there in the 80s, a perfect bike for a winding road like that.
But now Iím told itís not such a good ride with speed restrictions and camper vans.
Might still have a look depending on who I am traveling with.

I'll be there late Friday afternoon, on my V85TT.  Leaving Auckland Wednesday to explore some roads on the way down to Wellington.

Looking forward to catching up with old acquaintances again.

There will be at least three V85 attending.  I'm guessing mine will be the most molested.

Thanks Kev.  I have enjoyed the two others I have been on.  Meeting up in Amberley about 45kms out of Christchurch with about 5 others from Christchurch.  Final coffee and I'm on the road.  :bike-037: :bike-037: :bike-037: :thumb:

Is that Greg's or Pete's? Had heard that Greg had changed the headlight to a round one (that actually works), but hadn't seen photos yet. My loss for not returning to the scene of the crime sooner.

A few pics from today. Back roads, open roads, fast roads, slow roads, all Guzzi roads. And yes, the 1938 Pe250 did the lot! Just a bit slower than some of us   :bike-037: :copcar:
