Hi folks, i hope all is well in your world, my wife and i have just had a beautiful day out on our scoots cruising around the district, 75 kilometres of delightful riding. Mid May and we are still experiencing summer conditions, it was 24 here again today. I have just fitted my new mid size screen going from the 150 mm fly screen to 305 mm, what an amazing difference, i chose an ERMAX SPORTIVO 525 mm wide. I am 5 foot 10 and very pleased with the shelter this windshield is providing, at 100 kph you get the feeling you are being sucked along, in fact it got very warm sitting in behind it. The photos are of our coast line outside the Clifton cafe north of Cape Kidnappers which can be seen in the back ground. All the best, Owie.

Can't get over how good the weather has been lately. Had a good storm just go through, but it was half an hour then all quiet again. Beautiful pictures of a gorgeous region.

Autumn at last!!
Hello pigletpilot, yes we have had an amazing summer, but by the look of to-days weather forecast i think it is coming to an abrupt end this weekend. We have quite a few of the family living in your region and my son and his family are out at Raglan. We look apon Hamilton as our closest Vespa Agent and bought our scoots from the Scooterbar, this was over 2012 and 2013, Grant was the agent then, the wife's new scoot come from Auckland as the dealership there offered a very good trade in price for her orange 2013 GTS300.

Sure looks like tomorrow (Friday) is the end of the golden weather. Saturday forecast here suggests winter wants to arrive. Firewood arrives tomorrow afternoon! Please message if you want to stop for coffe or a break if you are passing through.
Love the Hawkes Bay, found a great wife there.
