Adventure Time: Running Lower Hutt Fire Breaks

Lower Hutt, Wellington is small city surrounded by hills covered in regenerating native bush and gorse. The hills have wide tracks bulldozed in them to limit the damage of bush fires.

When it’s dry the fire breaks make great running tracks. The views of Wellington and Wainui are the best you will get. Photos from my trusty iPhone.

Adventure Time: Quad biking at Thundercross

My partner’s brother and I head out to Thunder Cross Valley Bike Park in Auckland for some quad biking adventures.

I borrowed a friend’s Sigma 85mm 1.4 to take a couple of action snaps. Take a look. The bike is a Yamaha Raptor 700r, it’s insanely fast, the modified turbo versions must be on another level.

Nugget in for certification

So it’s been a crazy long time since I bought the EVOcoupe from Jonny, but it’s almost done. I’ve had the guys at STM finish up loads of little things that needed to be sorted. When I was down in Wellington for the NZPC Summer Tour I took it for it’s very first drive. I’m really impressed with the power delivery and how smooth it is to drive. I dropped it down to Junior’s Kustom Rides to get it road legal. Because of the conversion, totally rad shaved door handles and the mad power the Nugget needs a LVV Certification before it can legally hit the road.

Adventure Time: Sweet Mothers Kitchen, Wellington

 

 

Sweet Mothers Kitchen has to be my favourite place to eat when I’m in Wellington, New Zealand. On this visit a friend and I tested out their Soft Fish Tacos, Curly Fries and the Hush Puppies. All received A+ ratings that match their customer service.
