    Pm replied to. :clap

    Anyone happen to have an extra set of boots, size 9 or so, L helmet, and a bag system laying around?


    Don't think I'll be able to make the ride south towards fairlie since the bike is already south of there. But am interested in the hotel for sure.

    Anybody driving down towards fairlie and passing by Christchurch in the process that has room for a well behaved yank and a rucksack?

    I assume the bike will be arriving sometime on friday? You could send it to Mackenzie Country Motors, 2 Regent Street, Fairlie,my bother runs the garage there and will not mind (I will let him know to expect it).

    Dusty Butt???

    I some how don't think so, try Icy Butt.

    These photo's were taken about 20 mins ago, outside my motel room at Methven. I believe that this is the Mt Hutt and the Southern Alps. It has pissed down here all day, and when the rain went and the clouds dispersed, this was my sight as I strolled back from the Brown Pub, BTW there are about 6 DB's riders here in Methven

    F**K me, here we go again, I can't put up the photo's direct, just click on the bullshit to show the photo's

    Mate if you were back home you'd be complaining about the heat, over hear your complaining about the snow. Bloody winger :evil

    Yep it is going to be a bit interesting. From what I can tell no snow down around Central Otago - yet. Awakino Saddle will be interesting if there is snow but the rest of the first day should be OK regardless, though maybe wet.

    Cheers

    Fricking excellent video TA.
    I couldn't get over how blue the sky looked.

    What was the button on the left hand side you pressed occasionally - horn/ kill switch?

    That button is the 'keep this bit' button for the helmet camera.
    The camera (when batterys are good and memory card isn't full) records continuously in a loop deleting video older than 1 minute unless I press the keep me button at which point it keeps the current bit and anything that happened in that minute before. Second button on the remote is stop recording.
    Tis why I held my finger above the button and showed Ryan me pushing it right before he gave me the finger (or could have been just a shaking fist) right after he did his backward roll off the bike manoeuvre. You fell in front of me... 'keep this bit'....this is going on YT ! He knew what I was doing. lol.

    Cheers.
    Camera for that ride was the VIO P.O.V. - HD camera. It's an expensive one and I have mixed feelings about that camera overall.
    Some different features to the GoPro HD 1 but the latter GoPro's are getting better except the latest version is full of bugs.
    Sony have an interesting one here now with their Steady Shot feature - digital anti shake. Their picture is better, sound is the worst though.

    Ya bastard :2guns Yes I knew exactly what you were up too. That was the ADV salute I gave you. I was absolutely stuffed when I fell over. No where near fit enough for that riding that sort of terrain the way I like to at the moment.

    I noticed you didn't include the fact that it took you TWO attempts to get up that knarly bit of hill on the Awakino :deal

    I think I did... the bit immediately before the wheelie crash is attempt 1, the wheelie crash attempt 2, then you pulled me over to the near side and away we went with out any more problems so didn't include the last bit. Or are you thinking off something else?
    Record button didn't work every time I pushed it, I've noticed a couple of scenes missing I thought I had.
