NZ SOUTH ISLAND

I GOT MY BIKE FIXED. PUT A NEW REAR TYRE ON IT PLUS A COUPLE OF INDICATORS. SAFETY FIRST! AS IT WAS SITTING IN MY MATES CARPORT IN CHRISTCHURCH NZ FOR QUITE A WHILE EVERYTHING WAS GLUED UP AND I NEEDED TO TURN A FEW SCREWS TO GET THE OLD LADY ROARING AGAIN. A BIT OF FRESH OIL AND SHE WAS WETTER THAN AN OTTERS POCKET!! READY TO BE TAKEN DOWN TO QUEENSTOWN.
