I was out riding yesterday with a few friends from the NZ branch of the Institute of Advanced Motorists. Although I'm still an Examiner, I retired as regional Chair of IAM just before C-19 lockdown and this was our first get-together since all restrictions were lifted. Great riding, even though there were heavy showers but the best bit was right at the end. They presented me with a KTM Race Team fleece and a snow dome with a photo of me and the 790 inside it (the closest I'll ever get to riding in snow) 馃槃 .

It was totally unexpected and quite emotional - what a fabulous bunch of mates and I really treasure those gifts.

Quite happy to never see snow again :D
Oh I dunno. It's all white and pretty. Be lovely on those high mountain ranges in the distance.



And it is damn cold at the top of that - especially at night!.

Went past it when we were there 3 years ago but not up it! There's snow in the NZ high country in winter but you won't find me there at the same time :D
