Oink oink! Toot toot!We’re off to the Pig and Whistle in Trentham East for lunch. This quaint 1940s hotel sits at an isolated intersection amongst a farmland setting once famous for potato growing in the area’s rich red volcanic soil. The food at this hotel has been personally road tested by Pete, Jo, Noel and David and determined to be several cuts above standard pub fare. Ride description:This is a cracker of a…See More

"Hi David, thanks and makes total sense. Had a soft seize on my old Lambretta years ago on a country highway run down to Second Valley in SA - fuel too lean for sustained high speed cruising - not fun!"

Hi Bo, we look forward to seeing your red special in the display in Maling Road tomorrow. I believe you said you were arriving around noon. Its probably best to approach Maling Road from the south down Bryson Street. You'll have to wheel you scoot through the crowds being careful not to scratch the Rolls Royces along the way, ha ha. Sunny morning, rain later in the afternoon. See you tomorrow. David
