Off the footage/photos  from last year and yarns ive had from those who attended this has been on my list of cool awesome shit to do on my bikes.

Super keen to attend most likely on  Honda CT90 / 125 Lifan creation that will be well tested before trailered north for this. Have had a few lads from Quake City Rumblers also make noises about being keen on this too. Real good cunts I can vouch for . 

Out of curiosity whats the go with us wearing vests and that massive gang situation up them ways ?

Fizzing ! Cheers J5,HiLux & Others GCs associated with organising this epic adventure.

Chuuur.

I was a bit wary of the vest/patch situation last year but it became pretty clear early on that no one was misinterpreting what we were about. 

I'd like to think the further you get from the big centres the better senses of humor gangs get. I can't think of one negative response from the public over the weekend. As long as no one is really acting out I'm sure we'll all have a good time.

A few of us Rolled vests last year, and got many hearty Yoza’s and hand signals waved at us. Locals were all for it

I couldn't imagine a more enjoyable way of punishing my anus for three days.

Accom at hicks bay can hopefully be the bach we stayed in last year.

Bedding is limited but there’s plenty of room for a tent/hammock or a bed roll on the floor.

Cost for staying will just be a small donation to cover the box of beers we leave for the owner as thanks for his generousity.

Id expect many a seig and yoza over the weekend but more out of respect for the madmen we are than beef

Keen. x100000. Won't be posting this on the Moped NZ facebook page. Will throw some hearty dudes the deets for the event though. 

Also can I just say mirrors are great and at least one for the right hand side saves a whole bunch of head turning/crashing and breaking collar bones.

This is probably one of my favourite events. And it’s only happened once. 

This year my CT90 will be back with a big block 125. 

Hopefully my chain / swing arm / airbox / front wheel don’t come loose / fall off like last year though.

Keen for more beach hoons and jumps in the sand dunes. Lunch at the Te Puka Tavern in Tokomaru Bay would be a good option for food this year
