An Awesome Weekend away....

What an amazing weekend away! ... The Second Annual "Thuderbird Round the Coromandel Ride" took place in the weekend..with approximately 70 bikes and picture perfect weather it was a recipe for fun, fun fun! We had cruisers, sporties and tourers so a great selection of beautiful bikes to check once we arrived in Whitianga.

We set off from Colemans Suzuki on Saturday morning heading for Whitianga where we stayed the night and partied the night way. We had stopped at Bombay and Kopu where we picked up bikes along the way. Sunday saw equally stunning weather and we finished the loop having made new friends and caught up with old ones.

There is something pretty spectacular about watching a huge line of bikes heading down a curvy curly New Zealand country road.

A few pics below and of course I had to take a few of Big Bertha (my bike) ... she's a beauty! :)




Big Bertha...
and again...





Simply stunning weather...



A huge big congratulations to Troy who organised the event and to Kevin and Kathy as ride captains who did a sterling job!

It was a great weekend!

Cheers, Nick.

Nice one Nick. If you enlarged the second and third to last photos, you'd see our home on the far shore of the harbour!!
