Hi from New Zealand

Hi
I am Scottish moved to NZ in 2008 love it here but the Scottish roads take some beating particularly my favorit Kyle of Lochalsh road.
I've not had a motorcycle since I sold my 954 Fireblade back in 2004.
I have recently acquired a ST4s ABS with 8000 genuine miles on it I have taken it apart and rebuilt it as a bit of a hobby and started joining in some local club ride outs which I enjoy I have missed the comradery of like minded individuals.
Seems I have the bug again as I am now awaiting delivery of an immaculate low mileage Wasp or yellow 1098 so it seems Im back into biking and having fun.
I've always had Japanese 4 cylinder bikes with the exception of the KR-1 250cc modified two stroke I raced for a season mostly Fireblades or R1's my first bike back in 1986 was a GPz900r I had a 916 around 2002.
I used to enjoy track days at Knockhill and European tours over the Alps and Pyrenees i've posted some photos of me having fun at Knockhill and it was not raining!!!!

Welcome! Whereabouts are you in NZ?
We know both DOC Nelson and DOC New Zealand guys, and they're all great fun so you should definitely join up
