Anyone in the naki getting a T7 ?
Are they in NZ already?
yes, I’ve seen a few delivered last week
Nice one. How heavy is that Strava app on battery life/cellular data? Or, do you run a power source? A mate uses it on his treadly, (and wrongly it seems) I just assumed it was aimed at MAMIL’s
I use it for cycling. So when I use it on the motorbike I upload it at the end of the ride and then quickly share it with Facebook, delete it from Strava (so no one thinks I have beaten any cycling speed records ...) and then save the new Facebook image as an image and put it on here (Long winded I know but it is good to see where the ride went. It is a shame more on here don’t share their routes)
I have the ap on an iPhone and it lasts a long time (have been over 7 hours on the bicycle). No cellular data as it runs off the GPS while recording, only need data to upload at the end.
And for anyone thinking of using it remember it is a cycling, walking, running, swimming application. It does record fastest times for certain segments so you would be shot if you were recording motorised segments in there as you would be sitting the fastest times everywhere. That is why I delete it so quickly once I have the image saved).
I’m sure there are better and more suitable applications to use, but this is the one I have loaded.
A nice morning to go exploring
So, who was it that stopped for refreshments around lunchtime today in Mokau?
Minter of a day, everyone who had a bike was riding it, it seemed
Wasn't me I'm not allowed out.
Did go for a blat on the pushie but not far enough for a whitebait fritter sammy at Mokau, sadly.
Gorgeous day here too, cold and clear.
The mountain would have been impressive.
Santoft, after it warmed up.
Lunch at Viv's Kitchen. Constantly outstanding good tucker.
After too many Saturdays full of other activities today finally we had time to get out and enjoy a gorgeous autumn morning in Taranaki. So we checked out a couple of tunnels, stopped and watched the sheepdog trials for awhile (definitely guilty!) and then enjoyed lunch in the Toko Tavern.
Okay I have to confess that I have been looking at new bikes lately whether they be little or big singles, parallel twins or V twins. The changes to ABS after 1 November are partly to blame for that. Anyway...... this morning we thought we would head off for coffee and lunch on KT and take in a couple of roads that while they are very close to home we have never explored them before. And you know what, I realised that there is nothing wrong with my bike, it does all I want (and most probably much more!) so why burn $$$$ on another bike (new bikes do smell good though don't they lol)
Here are a couple of pics of the ride and a really nice Thai beef salad that Leanne ordered (and I should have too!)
More or less came to the same conclusion on replacing the Tiger; does everything I ask of it so why bother ditching it. A new bike wouldn't add that much value to my riding but would certainly take quite a bit of it away $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Soon you'll both be stuck in a time warp like me. It's just a jump to the left...
If i didnt know better I'd think you are trying to tell me i shouldn't buy that shiny new GS I've been lusting after.
You only live once...
(what colour is it??)
I managed to get out this arvo and head north a bit. Explored up a no exit road that I had never been all the way up and was pleasantly surprised. Nice windy tarmac with several km of gravel at the top, some of it through bush and some nice views back towards New Plymouth.
End of the road
Red white and blue with gold wheels...
That's not an airhead...!
Ha! Late to the party....
