Defenders in Moorea

Was just in Moorea, an island off of Tahiti for the last week or so. One of my friends out there does marine research through a grad program at UC Berkley. They used some pretty cool 130s out there to load their diving equipment. The 130s were so big and man is that diesel engine loud. Attached are some pics.

Crazy, but I could have ridden in one of those green ones back in '97 when I was on Moorea doing marine research at UCLA. I remember a white one there too. Might be that one in the background. I think I have some video footage of it. I'll have to dig it up. But that does look like a TD5 which didn't come out until '98 so I'm sure it's entirely possible they have had replacements since I was there.

Yea the green ones have been there awhile and they really show their age. The white one is the background is actually a newer one. They bought 2 new white defenders a couple years ago so they probably are td5s.

I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Moorea where they had the Moorea Dolphin Center. Our room was right next to the large holding area for dolphins. I bet your friend who's out there goes there often.

Loved Moorea, but Bora Bora was out of this world. I've got a Hinano Beer sticker on my rig
My daughter's middle name is Rea (from Moorea), as she was a "souvenir" from our second honeymoon there.

what memories- we were there for a couple weeks back in '99- rode in the 130 as well, and hence the obsession began. Bora Bora had the best sand in the world!!
