Day 19 - On the way home

Taupo - Tirau - Pukekohe - Hamilton

So, I'm just about back in Auckland.

I left Taupo and did a little detour as some of my motorbike mates were meeting in Pukekohe for lunch and a video of the Suzuki boulevard rally from a few weeks ago. If you enjoy to ride then do have a look at .... It costs you nothing to join up or join in and anybody can post a ride. It's a great way to meet fellow bike enthusiasts and get to know a whole lot of thoroughly nice interesting people.

All the bikes are shiny ..... Except one :)

Pea soup fog greeted me as I left Taupo but it progressively improved. It was not an exciting days ride, however, I found myself going very sedately as I reviewed my trip in my head and didn't want the New Zealand leg of the journey to be over yet.

I stayed for lunch in Pukekohe then bid my farewells and headed back down south to Hamilton where I am now.

My regular stop on the way to Hamilton .... The back of Huntly :)

On Wednesday I head back to Auckland where I have lots of planning to do and people to see before jumping on the plane next Monday.

I will fill you in on the details when I am a little further down the track. I will also write a review of some of the highlights of this trip.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to follow my blog. Cheers, Nick.

Glad you made it safely to your Folks. I did the Waikaremoana road several years ago on a ZZR11, but in the height of summer with a group of friends. Like you I was so glad to arrive in Murapara in one piece.

Go well, I'll be following your blog.
