After being heavy rain bound in Taupo for three days, it was exciting to once again be on the bike and headed towards Hamilton, about a four day journey, or there abouts. So you can undertsand my dismay and disappointment when the right side peddle sheared completely off the axle, leaving Pioneer Spirirt completely un rideable.


After a period standing roadside waiting for the right vehicle – a light truck, ute, or car with trailer, some kind locals loaded up the bike and we were headed back to Taupo to find an engineering workshop, open during the peak holiday season, who would consider taking on such a job……..the search begins.
