    • @RayKiro Yup, and after two motor cleanings it seems to stay airborne. Woot! ,
    • @BikingBrian Reasonably sure it's black sand. ,
    • Things I leaned today: Black sand is mind-bogglingly magnetic. Also learned: How to clean a magnetic brushless motor free of black sand. ,
    • Black sand dunes, streams, ocean, and steamy rainforests...all on a single trail run. @ Lake Wainamu ,
    • A nice sunset test ride after unpacking the bike. Seems to mostly still work... @ St Heliers Beach ,
    • After apparently taking the scenic route to New Zealand, glad my bike finally decided to rejoin me in time for wknd. ,
    • @paulheyer Shortly...(as in, maybe tomorrow, but likely Tuesday). Keep running into snags waiting on last few trainers to come in. ,
    • RT @tomfowler2: First shot of @recon PC clear Jet. Check out the magic going on inside. Yours truly modelling the model. ,
