I’m definitely going... taking a day off work especially for it.
I’m desperately trying to get my café racer finished … but alas, after an electrical issue, then a battery problem... now I have a running rough and backfiring problem... ahhhhh got to love old bikes!

Hi Keith
If you are planning on going (and taking a bike) 2 options, you and I could ride there together, or ride out to Helensville or somewhere central to meet up with the other 2 that are going?
Feel free to get in touch.
Tim

Jon and Tavita
We could meet there, or find somewhere central to meet…any thoughts? Question

I'm closer to central than Helensville so can meet up with you guys before the bridge, although its a good ride out to Helensville and back. Cheers, David.

Excellent Scotty. Didn't think you were going to bother. I'm pushing to finish that Flyrite after 5 years. Good motivation bounce

The first of many meet up and rides took place on Sunday with a encouraging 5 of the Auckland crew meeting up and riding to the Caffeine and Classics show at Smales Farm - Northshore.
The five of us, all different in our own way came together seamlessly like the smooth curve of a freshly painted gas tank... Personally, although the day was over what felt way too soon, I had a great time and enjoyed the company.

Apologies for letting the team down, rolling up on my pretty much stock bike .. Had to laugh when I read the back of IrishJon's shirt .. "Stock bikes suck", more motivation to try and finish the Cafe Racer. Very Happy

IrishJon, Scotty, David and Keith great to meet you and/or see you again, and look forward to our next catch up.

IrishJon will be posting the date for the next catch up.. likely to be at the Salt Lake Cycles workshop in the next few weeks.


Hope to see you there.

Guys, I know this is late notice.. but the Caffeine and Classics show is on tomorrow, it's the 2nd anniversary show so possibly a big one?

The weather is showers in the morning between 7 and 8am, then clearing from 9am to 5pm... if anyone is going, or wanting to go, throw up a reply and even with late notice we'll see if we can get a few together to gate crash again.

Cheers

Keith, not sure if you have officially departed the City of Sails, but I know it must be close.
I’m sure I can say this on behalf of the Auckland Crew, wishing you and your Family a successful transition to the life style of warm sand between your toes.

Hope we see you again on some club runs.

Keith, I'm only about 5km from the BOP/Waikato border. Have a ride, hang & enjoy a cold beer.
