30th September 2011 - Issue #033

September 2011.. How did it treat you? I've been a bit tied up with weddings and the Rugby World Cup which is being hosted right here in New Zealand, so I haven't been on my bike much lately unfortunately. In saying that, by the time you read this I will be up North again gearing up for a weekend of riding on that lovely piece of paradise that I feel very lucky to call our private motocross track.

Mikko from Playbike is donating me a sexy set of graphics to tidy up my boy Blue. Thanks mate! I'll have 'em on by (NZ) summer and will show you how cool Playbike graphics really are. Playbike Motocross Graphics

That's it from me. I hope October brings you a fantastic month of riding. I'm heading off to sunny Vietnam shortly, for a 3 week breather away from work and a shiteload of sun and fun! The closest thing I'll get to riding a dirt bike will be holding on for dear life on a rickety old scooter on the frantic Vietnamese highways. I'll do my best to get the October e-zine out from abroad. Till then, stay safe and..

Keep Riding,
