Mighty Mouse in the Maungatuks

Yesterday I finally had the chance to ride the little WR in the mighty Maungatuks - a place that Colin had been promising would be fun and challenging.  Hence the tyre changes earlier in the weeks before... So, on a drizzly Saturday morning I loaded up that fabulously expensive new farkle (without dropping the bike on it and making me cry) and headed on down to meet Colin in Waikanae. In [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Glutton for punishment

Every time I change a tyre I run into some little issue and end up saying "never again." The easy bit... But, the WR is only a little bike, how hard can it be? Let's get to work Turns out it is tricky and tubes can be pinched.  Something to be said for tubeless tyres alright... Got there in the end And then tonight. Remove axle nut and that's it... Then after much sweating... [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Getting dirty

I was up early on Anzac day so I could attend the Dawn Parade.  This meant that by about 9am brekkie was a memory, the dog had been walked and I still had plenty of daylight left to get the lawns mowed and...well, why not go for a little pootle? Ever since acquiring the littlest Yammy I'd been keen to hit North Range Road on it.  This "road" is punctuated by numerous bog holes, puddles that you [Author: Andrew Thomson]

‘Mighty Mouse’ Live-Action/Animated Hybrid Movie in the Works from ‘The Meg’ Co-Writers

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a…mouse? With the movie industry saturated with superheroes, you’d be forgiven for rolling your eyes at the prospect of a new one hitting the scene. But what if that new hero was in fact one of the oldest superheroes in American pop culture history? And he’s a mouse? Mighty Mouse is the next superhero to soar to the big screen, with Paramount Animations developing a live-action/animated hybrid feature film based on the Terrytoons character first created in 1942. ...

Zig Zagging

Only a short ride of around 90km this weekend.  I'd done a little maintenance job on the WR and thought that like a little like a Gurkha's kukri, the bike couldn't be put back in the shed without a quick squirt. After topping up with a ridiculous amount of fuel (5.5L), I puttered out of town and made for Watershed Road to hit some gravel as soon as possible. Again it took me a little while to [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Takapari Road

While we were away down South, Colin and I had plenty of time to hatch plans for future rides.  I was dead keen to get my first WR adventure done before going back to work so by hook or by crook I was going to be going somewhere this weekend... Colin hadn't managed to get in enough riding while we were away so he decided that he was a starter for some WR action too.  Unfortunately, his little WR [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Meet Mighty Mouse

Ok, so before I disappeared off to take part in the TT2000 I did something foolish and bought another bike.  Except it wasn't foolish - I needed another bike for my single car garage (now containing 3 bikes and a car). Enter the little WR who now shall be dubbed "Might Mouse": After chatting to Colin about his one I had a quick look on Trademe and stumbled on this one.  It looked like it was [Author: Andrew Thomson]

Maple Leafs’ Mighty Mouse

For you pop culture nuts, there’s no need to explain who Mighty Mouse is. But for those of you who don’t know about this flying rodent, he was created by Paul Terry and first appeared in an animated short – entitled Mouse of Tomorrow – in 1942. Now, some of you might be wondering what in the world this has to do with hockey and the Toronto Maple Leafs, so let me tell you. The Leafs have a Mighty Mouse of their own and his name is Mitch Marner. Marner’s five-point game shows how dangerous he can...
