Well just over 2 years ago now I found myself newly single, without a vehicle and some money burning a hole in my pocket.
After a week of moping around home I found myself attending the devastating Christchurch Earthquake with the search teams and over the next three weeks gained a new appreciation of how we have to make the most of this life.
So as soon as I got home I was on TM, found an XT225 with less than 5000kms on it and an asking price of only $3000 as the guy needed some quick cash.
Back out the out the door again and brought my self the lil beauty of a bike you see here:
From the looks of it 0kms was offroad so I set about rectifying that on the way home!
Of course I had to take the long way home through Port Underwood and get to know my new toy, I met my brother on his bike and proceeded to teach him how to ride on gravel:
"I came into this game for the action, the excitement... go anywhere, travel light,... get in, get out,... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form."
