Hi from New Zealand

Hi from the other side of the world
I found your site by trawling tapatalk and have just spent the last hour laughing and nodding as I read the 'you know you're obsessed with Motorcycles when' thread and decided I had to join up

Before that I was on an 04 R6

I'm guessing this "man" is a woman, based on the post in the other thread?

I could be wrong.

No man bits here

That pic was taken at Magazine Bay along the South-Eastern coast from Auckland. Takes about 5 minutes to get to the start of the road from my house

Apols for the "man", then.

Where's that bay? I don't know the name...

Looks like the kind of view you get from out Eastern Beach or Maraetai way...

Very on the money, Magazine Bay is just after Maraetai - those funny little beaches just around the corner that you wouldn't think are big enough to name.

You know the area then?

Just recently got my hands on a Honda CB1000R for my street bike.
We also have a project Aprillia RS250 to fix up if/when time allows and a wee 1970's Benelli to convert over to track trim for me to play on next summer

Yes, a bit, do the occasional ride out that way, sometimes down through to Miranda. Might even have sat on the beach you are talking about, without knowing it had a name...

The view of the islands in the gulf is quite a distinctive one from that angle, hence my guess at yr location.

Yep is a fun ride out that way, we're lucky to have it on our back doorstep.

Bach'n cafe at Maraetai do great food and coffee + the manager is a friend of ours who is just starting out her riding 'career' on a little YZF-150
