VJMC 2018 National Rally
A few of us headed out Friday afternoon from Palmerston North to meet a few in Sanson and continue on up to Eltham. Below are photos of some of the bikes on rally lined up Saturday morning for voting. I missed a few bikes, but got most of them.
On behalf of our group a really big Thank You to Judy, Angela, and Ross for all of their hard work organising the rally. Next year's rally sounds like it will be held in the South Island with all those great roads designed for motorbikes :-)
On the Saturday we headed out to Tawhiti Museum, Hawera. Quite impressive wax models from life size to small scale models, trains, tractors, army vehicles, etc. It is definitely worth two or three hours looking around when up that way. Their website is tawhitimuseum.co.nz
Here's a video of the bikes in carpark. I didn't take any photos of inside the Museum sorry. Too busy looking at everything :-)
Sunday morning we all packed up, said our farewells and headed off. A few of us decided to head up closer to New Plymouth first to see the Holden Museum. No photos allowed to be taken there but was given special permission from owner to take a few photos of Alan's old Kawasaki he sold and is now on display there. Their website is hillsboroughholdenmuseum.co.nz and also worth a good look.
