With recent economic gloom, Cyclespot Honda's big opening last weekend was all the more an uplifting experience.

Yes Auckland's Northshore can now boast it's first motorcycle Superstore and the buzz on Friday night wasn't just because of the 'drinks and nibbles'. The spacious surroundings and quality of the new premises make you feel even more enthusiastic about motorcycling. (I guess that is the idea)

Wayne Painter and his wife thought it was pretty good. They won the draw for a trip to this year's MotoGP at Phillip Island! Using my highly developed social skills I managed to make eye contact with some of the big names seen checking the store out. Aaron Slight was polite as ever, standing next to bikes and fans for photos. Shayne King pressing the flesh.

A couple of keen Kiwi Riders popped in.

Yeah it's great to see motorcycles and motorcycling taken seriously.
Barrys Point Road is on the up check them out at number 63 (right next door to Holeshot).

Here's Big Dave's photo set from Saturday:
