A good weekend for riding

The small city I live in is surrounded by hills, with many good winding roads through them. On Sunday, I rode south, past the village where I spent most of my youth, and then over Saddle Hill to Fairfield, and back to Dunedin.

On Monday (I work Tuesday to Saturday) I went north, up the harbour to Port Chalmers, and then inland on a back road towards Waitati, then along the old north highway (long ago bypassed by a motorway) to town. A very enjoyable ride.

The workshop. I have lined the end of the garage with cheap wallboard, and painted it white. As you can see, there is still a lot of organising to do.

The new toy - a mini lathe. Now I have to teach myself to use it.

Now that winter's out of the way

There will be more motorcycle riding. I've spent the last few weekends setting up a workshop in my garage, and installing a new toy. Pictures to come.....
