With my partner heading to Hong Kong prior to Xmas prior to my arrival in early January and with my family having a "pre Xmas Xmas", and work quiet, I have an extra few days up my sleeve to get a few more km's under my belt, so I have posted a ride on www.colemanscruisers.co.nz (my nickname is kiwionabike on this site) and in the "KB Cruiser Group" page of www.kiwibiker.co.nz (my nickname is nest4u on this site). I have also posted some information on the NZ Motorcycle Cruiser Group (I am nest4u on this website too)
The ride is planned for the 20/21/22 December.
Check it out below and feel free to contact me if you're keen on joining for some or all of the journey. Details below the map....
