With this rare opportunity at hand I neglected to mention that I hadn't been riding a motorcycle since winterizing my Sportster last November. The only riding I did for the past few months was on the Vespa.
But being familiar with the model, and with Rog in the lead I was confident to be able to master whatever was lying in front of me. When we encountered the first twisties I knew that the master of the Triumph in front of me was holding back to give me a chance to get more comfortable with riding on the
wrong left side. Roger's IAM training became a valuable lesson for me, as I started following his line.
Meanwhile I wonder how I can ever repay that debt. For me this day was a dream come true: Riding New Zealand! And I tell you, it's addictive, because I want more! Thanks, Rog. You made my day!
