Weekend away in middle earth lake.

Had a great weekend away with my wife and a few friends at lake brunner, had to cross over the southern alps at Arthurs pass. One of the team had a few issues as he started with a Honda shadow but battery was stuffed when we went to take off so he met us later on his Ducati which also broke down later on.








My lovely wife and she can ride my versys pretty well even in wet conditions we had earlier.

Some really beautiful country you have there. Thanks for sharing. I'm just days away from parking the Versys for Winter hibernation. Nice to live vicariously thru photos like these!

Always trust your cape.

Wow Phil awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful country! Really cool you can share your riding with your wife and she enjoys it too!

I'm one of those guys crying the blues right now as it is snowing outside.

So keep posting!
