Cold Kiwi – 2007 Pt IV
Another instalment of photos and vid from the weekend in the middle of the wops…some more of the Burn Out Competition, and the Helmet Run, and the night’s festivities…
Left; The Salute to fallen riders, quite a din, especially amongst the two-strokes. Photo M. Tierney
Right; seemed appropriate at the time, I pull out my Bee Gees moves. Photo M. Tierney
Below left and right; the sausage competition – riders on the back of a bike must take as big a bite from a frankfurter hanging from a hook…sauce is sometimes added to make it more difficult…what is hard to watch is a guy on the back…hmmm, maybe in the wrong place, buddy.
Above; the infamous Helmet Run – the least clothing the better, and it is not so disappointing to see the ladies not get right into it, but damaging to the eyes that skinny white boys do!!
Below left; where there’s smoke…someone’s bike (not the ZX from previous post) catches fire!
Below right; the start of the dismantling – the main tent where the bands played on the Sunday morning – view from the food hall.
Below; discussions take place over a coffee, or a beer, something along the lines of “You know what, I think we should just cruise back at about 80km/h, and not worry if Harleys overtake us, and make sure we stop for any Police officer who requests as such”. Or something like that…
Below; the sight that greeted us every morning…Mt Ruapehu in all its splendour.
