  1. i wonder if the nibbling on rudders is linked to how they chase down whales and sharks in the open ocean apparently they like shark livers and whale tongues, perhaps they chew up their propulsive fins to stop them in the water? not much to get their teeth on to on a yacht but the rudder training for the kids? “It’s a shark they are hunting,” he says. “They eat sharks.” He later adds: “They actually bite the tails off [of the great whites] from the back.” https://roaring.earth/killer-whales-attack-monster-great-white-shark/ https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/16672
  2. some slippery action in a rainy race https://youtu.be/CZ8cm4evXHk?t=239
  3. no longer marine talk but to round it out https://www.1news.co.nz/2021/11/01/electric-powered-plane-makes-history-in-cook-strait-flight/
  4. built out of carbon and powered by electric motors run off hydrogen powered fuel cells, imagine something like this as a bus hopping round the bays of nz dropping people off to their batches etc take a lot of traffic off the roads and open up huge number of beautiful spots that are now too slow and hard to get to

  9. yesterday 3 of us took as much gravel as possible to get out for a play at journey's end, tapora and back along the kaipara hills road dodgy cross-winds at times but the rain stayed away a good hard 250km has done a lot to combat the locked-in syndrome and frustration at having to cancel a trip to murchison to see friends
  10. ooohhh like a guzzi re-styled as a 916duc
  11. barry's point road harley let me take their new pan america 1250 out for a day long test-ride recently all the tradition harley 'character' features like; low power, poor handling, bad brake etc. were absent making it an extremely competent sports-tourer that in the right hands would scare the crap out of many sportbike riders smaller than my GSs with an engine tuned more for power than torque they seem to be selling well and future models should get better as minor issues are addressed https://www.advpulse.com/adv-news/2021-harley-davidson-pan-america-specs-unveiled
  12. friends of mine eagerly await each year when a new year of classic bikes can get the $50 a year rego starts at 40 years i think, it makes owning multiple bikes much cheaper as a newish big bike costs >$500 for rego, most of that ACC levy..........motorcycling about the only? hobby that gets pinged like that by ACC....
