2014 Mods and Rockers
2014 Mods and Rockers was hosted by First European (you might know them from their ‘Street and Sport’ days). Bit of a different format this year and good turn out on both sides meant for a great afternoon.
We met down at First European to start with, bit of a catch up and check out the bikes. We then headed off a loop around the inner city before heading thru the tunnel to Lyttleton and around the inner Harbour, over Gebes pass and around to Tai Tapu. All that thirsty riding meant an ale or two went down a treat. Bit more hanging out and talking and we had a few of the good old games. Even dodgy scoring couldn’t prevent the Mods from coming out victorious again!

The idea then was to head back into town and adjourn to Smash Palace for a Bodgie or two. This was taken as a pretty good idea and we had a good turn out back at the bar.
All in all a fun afternoon with some riding and plenty of laughs.
Big thanks to First European for putting the whole thing on, and also to all you mods who fronted up and did us proud.

We are, we are , we are the MODS!


2013 Canscoot Show Weekend Ride
Big thanks to Mike for putting together the plan for this years annual ride. We started in Lincoln and took the scenic route to Hanmer, where we stayed for a couple of nights. Day two was a trip loop over to the West coast to Reefton and back and then day three we head home, some directly some not so much.

The idea behind choosing this location was to offer the opportunity for people to join in for all 3 days, or just 1 or 2 of days.

There were plenty of options on all days depending on how much time you had, whether you love the gravel or need to avoid it, and a whole lot of in between. It was good to see people take advantage of these options and join in for various parts or all of the weekend.

2013 Mods and Rockers - March
Steet and Sport again hosted the annual Mods and Rockers winter rumble. Numbers weren't so flash for the Mods this year, that and some dodgy scoring meant the Rockers have another plaque on the shield. Never the less it was a fun afternoon and plenty of laughs were had. Thanks again to Simon for a few of the photos.


Monthly Ride - March
Easter Sunday saw the rain clear and bunch of us head out to the Peninsular for the afternoon.
Coffee stop at Little River then up the hill and around the summit road. Down into in Okains bay for another coffee (care of the camp stove this time). Akaroa was the next stop and the sun was well and truly out by now. Time for a few refreshments and a relax by the bay and then we headed for home. A great afternoon out.
Really good to see some good numbers for the ride, new faces and some we haven't seen for a while. Thanks to Simon and Jim for their photo contributions


Monthly Ride - February
The last Sunday on February was a really good Canscoot ride out. We headed along the bottom of the hills then up Mt Pleasant rd, along the summit road, (through a gate up some narly gravel to the 360 degree trig station look out) back along the summit rd and Evans pass rd out to Godley head. We all went up the grass track and parked the bikes on the gun emplacement ( photos to come ). Then down into Sumner for a couple of beers.
A really nice afternoon riding, and great to see a few new faces as well.
Big Thanks to Dean for the photos and the vid.
Hope "Flip" has now got the hang of the new clutch on the mighty PX and the leg is healing up

Mods and Rockers Ride -28 August 2010
This ride was organized by local the Triumph shop “Street and Sport”. The idea was for it to be open to all British Bikes Pre 1980 but including all new Bonneville machines from 2001 onwards (including America and Speedmaster) and open to all scooters except Japanese automatics.
The short notice meant the turn out wasn’t going to be as big as last year but a nice warm spring Saturday afternoon saw a bunch of us riding out to the Tai Tapu pub, then onto the Wheatsheaf Pub, around the harbour, thru Sumner and on to Brighton Beach for a Photo shoot.

Thanks to Toby and his flash iphone app for the images

Mad As a March Hare - West Coast ride: 5 - 7 March 2010
The three day trip stuck this year’s fine days down the West Coast (great planning Toby!) apart from a brief spell of rain from Jacksons to Hokitika it was fine, dry corners all the way around that brilliant southern loop through some of the best scenery in the world. Nice to have a few out of towners to join us as well.
If you weren’t there you missed a good one, enjoy the photos and make sure you are there for the next ride.
