    If Addiction isn't able to assist, there is also the Lazy Graze.

    Make that warning to the cafe 11 or so bikes. This lurker is heading for the Big E for Saturday morning. Leaving tomorrow from Whakatane, taking minor roads to a cabin in Waipawa for Friday night, I was going to take a coastal route to Eketahuna, however if everybody is turning up before 9 then I will slab it down SH2 in the morning. Google indicated my planned route would be 4 hours from Waipawa to Eketahuna. I'll have to save that for next time :lol3 Plan to stay somewhere in Eketahuna Sat night, if some one has a spare bed in cabin I would be keen, otherwise it will be a tent in the camp if all the cabins are full. Heading home via Whaunganui, Taranaki, Raglan and then across the island via Boyds in Hamiltion to drool over a 790. Should be home sometime Tuesday. Good little workout for the 950, and for me. Cheers Rex

    Cool. I called the cafe and they're expecting us. I may need some bacon and eggs after 2 nights of this stuff

    Going to be interesting tonight..1 degree and morning frost forecast. Decided i would be better off sharing my tent to keep warm so have invited a small bottle of Johnnie Walker to join me. For medicinal purposes only of course. Might need to save some for the Desert Road. That's going to be nipply.

    A small bottle of Diplomatico (Reserve Exclusiva) Rum has made it's way into my luggage. Don't know how that happened...

    Funny.... I opened my pannier tonight to pack and there was 2/3 of a bottle of honey Bourbon in one. Forgot that was there.
    I might chuck some thermals in too, just in case...

    There is accommodation in my back yard for anyone coming through Taihape tomorrow or sunday...

    Looking like a nice weekend for a ride so we're going to head down. Aiming for Mohaka river camp tomorrow then a few backroads down. Won't be there for coffee but will be staying at the Eketahuna camp Sat night & on for beers & dinner.

    Cheers

    It was a chilly night, even in the cabin. The heater was nice...
