Thank you for your kind words Aussie109 and baldylatino, I love where I live and ride my 109, mainly because 35years ago I made a choice to leave my folks and travel 13000 miles and build a life of my dreams by working hard for me and my family. Now at 57 I am slowing down on the work and picking up on the leisure, and thats where the 109 fits in perfectly. Time for a picture



We welcome visitors to our town, so if any 109ers are passing on tour call in for a coffee

Cheers phil

We love our American wheels in Whangamata so each year in April we have a Rock & Roll Beach hop
Elvis usually turns up (thats where he went when he last left the building) and we usually attract about 800 V8 cars and hundreds of motorcycles. Our population is normally 5,000 but over three days we can grow to over 50,000. I will try to attach a video link then click on Beachhop promo. Spot the American flags.

Hope this works and there are enough motorcycles so as not to cause a problem
Enjoy: - we do every year, so come on down under for a look.
Cheers Phil

Nice shots Phil. I came up for the "Hop" but it was so darn wet on your coast, I headed up to the far north. Will try to make it next year on the 109.

Phil,

My other hobby, the expensive one as you know, is boating. So let me tell you that I have never seen a boat like yours! The lines on that boat are the most beautiful that i've ever seen! It will never go out of style which is very rare. It looks utilitarian yet elegant, classic yet vogue. Nothing like that here in Florida. Good on ya mate!

Mike
