The Official SPOTTED Thread 2011
« on: January 02, 2011, 11:26:45 am »
Viper softop, Sunbeam Tiger (Alpine with a Ford 289), a fifties Mopar wagon and a Ford Twin Spinner cabriolet in Matakana yesterday,

plus a white Golf R on Akoranga Dr last week, so subtle I didn't realise what it was until I was passed it, the R badge could have been GT from a distance

This is obviously meant to read tosser but it doesn't and in my opinion proves the driver is a tosser beyond all doubt

I also saw T055ER around last week, I think it was on Ladies Mile

Not to be confused with TOSSA which is on a black Ferrari 550 Spyder... wonder if the same tosser owns both?

Is there a decent trail around there or were you just being a "pioneer" ?

LOL, I'm a real Nanna on a mountain bike so there is a decent trail, quite a bit of boardwalk and metalled paths, not challenging at all and kid friendly, a bit of singletrack on grass and rollercoaster at the eastern end

see: http://cyclingauckland.co.nz/front/2010/11/hidden-treasure-tuff-crater-reserve/, it's my back yard and we've been riding it for several years, go down Exmouth Rd and head left on the grass, it starts at the little bridge, and you can come out at St Peters St or continue on to the Warehouse Way

I like a bit more of the rough stuff but it looks perfect to take my daughter with me.
Thanks alot for all the info, think I'll head over there Sunday afternoon.
