Recently got myself qualified as a diver whilst holidaying on the Red sea and im doing some advanced qualifications here in the UK. Turns out alot of divers you meet are bikers must be something to do with the spirit of adventure eh!!!

Don't take your bike under water [sdsdsdtq]
I suppose you dive indoors at the moment? Would be cold otherwise.

No, im getting dry suit qualified so can dive in the cold.
Its probably best to use drysuit most of the year in our cold northern waters.

The cbr would have made a better weight belt being the heavy beasts they are, hahaha

Laid back, cruising along listening to my wonderful 2.0L Vulcan Vee twin 'thump-thump' all day long, devouring the miles, enjoying life to the fullest, feet first.

Nice one Dave, good effort. Any thoughts to being a professional diver?? Had a few mates do it over the years.

Summer down here at the mo, perfect for watersports ;)

Nah cant see me being a pro diver not too interested in all that extreme depth with trimix and long decompression stops. That said like most things the more you do the more the parameters change!!
Bet theres some good diving in NZ i have family out there and the plan is to come over for a while sometime in the next 2/3 years.
