400km Ride.

Did just over 400kms today going to Waipawa and back. Deliberately keeping off the main roads where possible.
Buckeridges fleet, at Dannevirke, is always well presented.
This 700hp Volvo is no exception.

Un-named Kenworth was also in the Buckeridge yard.

Waipawa Buses fleet is a mixture of brands and ages.

Next door to the bus fleet this driver was cleaning his 2017 Western Star 4884FXC.
"70 hours driving and 10 hours cleaning", he claims.

2011 Scania with 730hp and the massive Topline cab was in the same yard.
Passed through Takapau, while keeping off the main roads.
I'm guessing this used to be the local pub.

One of the Akitio fleet based at Matamau.

Prenters Aggregate's fleet, at Dannevirke, appears to consist....
...entirely of Hinos.

Big concrete pump on a Freightliner Argosy was also in Prenters' yard.

My trusting steed turned over 185,000kms today and is still running as sweet as the day I bought her.
