Wow! That's a huge day!!
You must've slept well after that lol.
Was it cold as well as wet? It was really warm all day here lol.
It's never appealed to me to torture myself like that on a bike, I get to about 400kms and I'm over it.

Yeah my family kept reminding me after each wet pic i sent to em how it was 30deg blah blah.
The Coast was ok temp wise mid teens , Murch cooler :mad: Nelson thru the Hope saddle warm and sunny with dry roads :) and yep slept like a log and ached all day Sunday, having to wear wets
that long kinda constricted me a bit.
A big day indeed :crazy::beerchug:

I think it's a Triumph. Speed Triple maybe?
Just looked at most all Speed Triples and Street Triples. Nothing matches. The motor is definitely Triumph but I think the rest is full custom. The gas tank looks to be Yahama but the tail section doesn't look like anything I've seen. The newer 675s have exhaust that exits like that.

Motor, frame, arm and clocks all look triumph. Tail looks like a gixxer maybe? Bike is cool though...

What is the red and black bike with the number 13 on the side? Is that a B King?
That is Lee's Speed Triple, he's a custom painter specialising in bikes, that's his shop's 'marketing' bike, he's probably the very best custom painter in NZ. That tail end I'm not sure what that's off.
Remember the pics of the Busa I posted up a few weeks back with the custom paint job, deep red with airbrushed skulls everywhere? Yeah that was one of his too.
