    It was a replica of an RSR but beautifully done - a real credit to its owner

    What's with the Budweiser sticker on the Z. You don't drink that watery crap in the southern hemisphere do you?

    A good friend of mine is early in her road riding career....

    we went to Akaroa yesterday early to avoid the heat and traffic...

    her first time going there, its epically twisty and hilly so she was a little nervous but she absolutely nailed it! :clap

    Waiting patiently at 0700

    The traffic on the way back definitely showed us we'd chosen right to go early!

    Cheers

    Second trip to Akaroa in 4 days! Solo this time and meeting some Scottish friends who have just bought an RV for 6 months touring.....

    Weather was decidedly average but managed to score this....
