PostSubject: Lake Taupo Run   Wed Apr 28, 2010 10:55 am

I know this is very early in the piece but one of the things that we wanted to do with Grease Monkeys was to make it as inclusive as possible. I certainly didn't want this to just be an Auckland thing if we are getting people to post from all over the country.

Since the biggest group of people we hear from outside Auckland are in Wellington I have asked Woody to start organising a crew down there. We want to have people meet up at least once a month. Nothing formal. You don't get ignored if you can't make it. Just meet up somewhere and talk about bikes.

I was thinking maybe the Belgium Beer Pub down at Mission Bay. Woody will find somewhere in Wellington. Ride your bike down and maybe have a ride out somewhere after that. If your bikes still in bits, come down in the car. No pressure.

We are also talking about a Summer Run. We'd want to get everyone together somewhere in the middle so I was thinking Taupo. Like I said, early days yet but I think its a good idea to get people riding in from diferent places and meeting up to show what they have built.

What do you think?

I hope that it isn't obligatory for this trip... The blood bit, that is... Sad

If it is, we may need to change the "Its not a real run till you get a numb bum" t-shirt slogan lol!

Sorry about that Kershaw, I just reread that and I didn't mean it to come out quite like that. Embarassed
I remember riding up to Meremere one year with a bunch of mates white lining it most of the way (very hard to keep up with the swing arm bikes when your on a rigid) so the end result was feeling like your beaten up from the inside out. And to top it off pissing blood for most of that weekend thought I was going to die. drunken You know the best part of that trip was knowing I had to do it all over again going back home. HaHa.

Obligatory Sara ? That's a big word hehe. Nope were only going to Taupo I think we'll be ok mate.
Mind you that's a pretty good catchphrase for the back of a Tshirt Aye Irish....
Ya can't hold ya mud till ya pissing blood, I really like that. Laughing

You can always carry a bit more gas in a saddle bag anyway.
