These intrepid scooterists set out on a trip from Auckland to Bluff in early 1959. The Auckland Motor Scooter Club went on regular weekly rides, and there was a natural progression from overnight and weekend rides around the North Island, to long distance trips such as this one.
Some of the riders, wanting to notch a “North Cape to Bluff” ride on their belts, rode to Cape Reinga at New Years weekend 1959, before their planned departure date of February 14th for the south.
