For my moto-blogging friends!

This (very) short post is an unashamed tease.  I'm sure more will be revealed elsewhere in a day or two.

All I'm going to say is is that the lead bike in the photo  is a Triumph Sprint ST and the following bike isn't!  The photo was taken on Saturday and you can look at the surrounding foliage and make a call where it was taken and who the riders might be.  I'll neither confirm nor deny anything, haha.  It's a rear shot to protect the participants :-).

Spot the mystery riders!

Oh all right, just one more photo!

Head nicely turned, out fairly wide to maximise visibility - pretty professional, wouldn't you say???

    I think I've seen that lovely, sensuous, butt before . . . Not that I always look at butts

  2. Rog,
    I think (errr.. hope for his sake) that he's actually referring to the rear end of the motorcycle at the rear. Never know your luck though ;-)

  3. Geoff the roads in your area around the retirement village look fantastic. Bet you all had a ball.

  4. With smartarse "retirement village" remarks, you're pushing your luck - you've been believing Rogs' equally smartarse comments, haven't you, hehe! Yep, the Coromandel Hill is one of the great roads - 12 km of highly technical twisties. Lots of videos on You
    Tube, including me on the Triple: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9VXOYn9tO8

  6. Bob,
    Don't worry, I hear there's a contract out on Roger; then anyone else who mentions it ;-).

  7. Hmmmmm if I had to guess I'd say Roger was rocking the Sprint - and.........Miss SonjaM was rocking the other bike.

    Of course that is just a guess. Hard to tell from across the pond.

    ......waiting for the follow up posts.

  8. Brandy,
    You may well think that, but I couldn't possibly comment of course. I will say, however, that one rider was extremely enamoured with one of the bikes which might support your comment on a previous blog post :-).

    Geoff, my boy . . . on your last photo don't tell me you took your hands off the bars, dragged out your camera and snapped a photo whilst in a 45° lean . Looks like a Striple to me

    I'm dying to use that "retirement" word again, but perhaps on a future comment

  11. The second one had to make it on my header, I thought you wouldn't mind. Thank you so much for those awesome photos, and this once in a lifetime opportunity of riding the Coromandel on a Triple. I am afraid, I am hooked now. How on Earth do I explain to my husband that I need yet another bike?

  12. Looks fantastic as a header Sonja - to be replaced when you get yours?

    You are very welcome, it would have been criminal if you didn't have the opportunity to ride and drive the Coromandel Peninsula!

    Well, I hope that the Sportster doesn't feel too heavy after the Triple. If Roland says no, the Sporty will have to go :-)

    Go to bed, it's late in your part of the world!
