Decided to take my son on a ride called the poker run on saturday, You pay $25.00 and get a playing card at every one of the 5 hotel stops and the best hand will get $1000.00. It is organised by the "devils henchman motorcycle club" and on this ride is the only time according to their rules they ride with jap bikes. European bikes are accepted within their charter for normal riding.

Not sure how many bikes but there were a few and I did find it a bit scary the way they ride in tight pack formation but it gave my son Jayden and me a fun experience anyway. Every time we took off at a small town they would block the road until all the bikes had taken off.

Starting destination at my favortite place at the chequered flag Rangitata.




A few of stops along way. See I just parked on footpath to fit right in




Jayden at farlie

Had to take a shot of this guys bike with his speakers

A lot of the cruisers do not like the gravel and i got some dirty look for riding one handed take some pic's

Looks like a great time. I don't like riding with large groups I don't know either. First, the going is usually way too slow, but mainly because due to poor lane discipline, it opens up too many possibilities for someone doing something stupid that results in a multiple bike accident.

Glad you had none of those and just a nice Saturday run. Even if it was with a bunch of Harleys... ;)

Did you get a vest and some big wings so sew on the back? :cool: Looks like great fun. How was your poker hand?

It was a experience Gustavo but do not like the big group thing at all and at times on the tight twisty hill section was a bit concerned because as soon as you leave a gap to give you more room you get passed and boxed in. Some here might complain about the versys stock brakes but she will stop a lot quicker than most of the bikes on that ride but if the bike behind is to close!!!
