A wee while ago a group of the Haze crew managed to get out for a pre spring ride in what felt and looked like a golden day. It has certainly been a winter to remember and not for the right reason. With many catching Covid and everyone else trying to avoid it feels like we are emerging into better times and heading out on your bike with your mates certainly goes a long way to confirming it. The weather certainly played its part and it was really good of Sir Al adding to that feeling by bringing out his gold H2 for a spin. It certainly glowed in the sunshine and with its healthy dose of chrome as well it was a pleasure to cast ones eye over the bike. Also along for the run was Grant on his BMW GS1250, Rich on his Vstrom, Stuart on his Bandit, Gary on his BMW GS 650 and the GSR got a long overdue run with yours truly on it.
Our destination for the run was one of our favourite cafes, The Woolshed, just south of Sanson. We followed our usual route through Colyton, Makino Rd and through to Ohakea via Wilson Rd with a stop at Stanway Hall. It was interesting to see the progress on the hangers for the Boeing Poseidons and they are definitely very substantial buildings. I would hate to think about the cost of them on top of the price of the aircraft. We were soon at our destination and lining up to make our morning tea choices and then off outside to sit in the very welcome sun. With the worlds problems solved and the beverages and sausage rolls despatched we headed back into town with warm thoughts of a golden morning and many more as we head towards spring and summer.
