A couple of pics with the bikes Batwing painted, Hard bags resprayed to better match the tank (and respray due to scratches) and a cover fitted behind the sissy bar pad that will get some artwork on it at some stage.

Windy conditions but I still enjoyed the ride.... I didn't stop to often for pics though

Some pics from Yesterdays ride around the Coromandel Loop, lots of tights roads with a mix of flowing open sections too, A great mix of cruisers with single cylinder, parallel twins, V twin, V four, flat six

I ended up working on a friends bike the night before so didn't get the camera on the bike, I was intending to get some of the "good bits" on video....It was a long day, 13 hours but only about 8 hours of that are riding....some of it very slow, the leader was on a M109 and did not like the tight stuff so I stopped to get a few pics at times then caught back up to the group

Some beaut roads out that way.. And the scenery.. When you're riding on those, who cares how tiny this land is, there's still so much to enjoy!

I thought about the bike today, I felt guilty about leaving it behind in search of winding paths...... but on water so yeah not the best on the Valkyrie..... A few picks from my "ride" with my brother giving his Ski's a shake down

An initial run down the river then the fun of taking a run up the side creeks
