The recent ride to the small coastal settlement of Ngawi proved to be a bit of a hit for our members!
14 riders took the opportunity to get another ride in before the annual Christmas activity of operating the BBQ and entertaining the grand kids began.:-)
We decided to take the back road to Martinborough where we were joined by Steve Miller on his Triumph.
With everyone fuelled up we headed straight down along the coast to Ngawi.
The road along the coast was OK but not fabulous and had areas of loose stone on bitumen (not a good mix for a bike) and some wash away areas to negotiate.
The weather at Ngawi was excellent and combined with a couple of well stocked food trucks we were all well fed and watered before heading for home.
Yvonne's Guzzi unfortunately decided to blow a fork seal on the way down and Tony's CBX 1000 Honda wasn't charging well at low speed which required him to keep the rev's up, but apart from those minor irritations we all had a great ride.
The group split into two on the way home with each deciding on a different route.
Again a great day, a great location, a great ride and all with great people!
