Today was the Catalyst Bike Ride for '09. In perfect weather, Richard, Eric and I headed out to Castle Point.
I managed my first wheelie, and first touchdown on the ninja, all in the first hour. Over in the Wairarapa, it was so hot we were at the point of speeding just to cool down. I ended up riding with my jacket half open, it really was that hot.
Castle Point looked just like I remembered it, and then even better because of the beautiful weather.
On the way back, we stopped at the top of the Rimutaka Hill, along with a stag-party bus. The poor subject of the party had a ball and chain on his foot, and was throwing up. He was also only in his underwear. To the party's delight, he ended up mooning cars coming past, which was about the time we decided to keep moving :)
Great ride, good times, maybe we'll do another one this year and drag some more people along.
