Is that the one formally known as the Blue Duck? Now Gebbies Garden. - New owner seemed nice enough. Good coffee, the pie eaters in the group did comment how good the pies where. :thumbsup:

Black Tulip it was when I was a kid... And so it will forever be. But yeah, new fangled Blue Duck for a time.

(Funny! My phone has learned that I'm far more likely to type fuck than duck - autocorrection ftw)

What happened?

Had to call a chopper for a young dude on saturday. Probably was going to be fine but had concussion and a sore back. Better safe than sorry. Emergency services are rad as hell. Probably spent the night for the concussion but hopefully he walked out sore but stoked sunday morning.

This doesn't sound like the same dude - broken ribs and mashed his helmet apparently. Saw the go-pro - epic...

Yeah sorry wasn't trying to say it was the same guy, this was in Christchurch.

You should definitely share the link to the gopro video :D

Where did they crash?
Having ridden it, I can imagine the consequences when things go wrong.



Wonder if Blackhawk and his mates will share their video?
:D

Took the adventure bike back down through the Christchurch Adventure Park at the weekend. Man it was fun through the banking. Hell lord sketchy trying to avoid hitting all the big rocks so as to not detonate the front end.
