I’m lying on my bed in silence at the backbackers, but there’s a constant ringdingding noise playing in my head after 2 stroke riding all day.

After a fuel/pie stop just out of Gisborne we headed out to Rere falls, @MopedNZ had a bit of an incident along the way, but I'll let him tell the tale of that later on.

Then headed 2k up the road to Rere rockslide where an old abandoned air mattress was recovered...

Sadly I had to leave the ride at this point and head home, was super tempted to keep riding with the guys but coming back alone sucked enough from where we ended up lol

Can't wait for Mount ride!

Day one went a little like this for me.

Scooter didn't want to start. So had everyone working on it. Got it going and off I went. Had to stop and Take this photo I was so happy to be on my scoot.

Next stop was the petrol station.

And followed up with me and the scoot braking down. So the next few hours went passed with me in the back of a jimny. Back to Johns place grab the spare bike and play catch up began. Once caught up I was off on the vity. What a fucken tropper that was. Got to accommodation and spent to much on a small box of Woodstock (18 pack 43 dollar's 7 percent cans)

We then made our way to find dinner. Local rsa signed us all in had a beer and ate some food. Got rather warm so I stepped out side, ended up having a yarn with a local with his daughters on there horses.

From there I doubled Andrew home on the vity and searched for his wallet for a bit. The local Lady's from the rsa took a photo of us two up nuts to buts. Such a lol. From there proceeded to get drank and sleep on the deck in my sleeping bag.

My summary to the wife when I got home last night went something like this:

"It was awesome! One guy fell off and broke his collarbone, another dude went off a large bank and didn't die because he landed on some trees, and I got a flat tyre on the last day. Oh, and I had a little fall at about 2km/h when I derped. Can't wait for the next one."

Her response: "Please don't tell me that."
