    Anyone hired a bike in NZ? Planning on going back there in march 2013, this time to do some bike touring as well as showing the missus a bit of my favourite country ;-) I'd like to hire a GS, but I don't think the missus' dodgy hips will cope too well, so it looks like it'll be an RT or a Pan...

    I was watching the news and waiting to find out if my friends in Christchurch are okay after all that mayhem down under. Thankfully they've not been in contact before because they decided to get well away from the area for now and come back when the basics like water are back on. So, that's my...

    I'm going to declare the dommie dead. :-( With pain in my heart, it's my first bike and all that, lovingly altered and always a blast to ride, but I screwed it up and left it too long and it's too far gone now. Last outing was during the winter of 2008-09 after the GS nearly dropped a valve...
