My 'first' adventure ride thoughts...

Ok, so maybe it is not my first ride really when I think about it...I did own trailbikes like TT500's through to TT600's that I used to ride everywhere (being all I had at the time) and I also toured...

Beers and a Smoky Barbecue

We ended up at a driveway which ran off a junction of 3 roads, and Jack saw that the padlock was off, so he knew someone was there. We rode down the grassy two track driveway a few hundred metres and...

The long and winding road...

Gravel back roads the world over vary enormously, but this next section was a real ripper! Crushed granite made the surface smooth as tar seal, while still allowing you to drift the back when you...

Creeks, rocks and mud...

The creek at the bottom of the valley looked every bit as inviting up close as it had from the track. From up there though, you didn't get the whole picture, and the relentless erosion had made the...

Take the long way home...

Once re-caffeinated and on the road again, we headed away from the seaside town famous for its long rolling left hand break and wound our way out of town on a road I had never been on, which soon...

To the tracks!

No sooner had we left the cafe and wound around a few twists and turns to about 500m from the cafe than we were up and over the sidewalk and onto the access to the railway service track beside the...

4 Classic Adventure Bikes Go West In NZ

When you get 2 Transalp 600's, a Transalp 400 and a Dominator 650 together you know this is not going to be just another boring friday. And when legendary enduro hard man Jack Beaumont tells you 'He...

Sprocket play

Thats normal for those types of locking systems where the tab rotates and then bolts onto the sprocket - it only has to locate it in the slot generally: the splines transfer the (awesome) power, so...

Thumb Great RR mate.

I learned to ride on one of these (a CT 90) over 30 years ago - but here in NZ they use them for chasing the cows in to have the milk sucked out of them, not delivering the mail - the posties ride...

Cool report mate!

Was thinking of a similar trip myself,
Do you sort out visas and things before hand, or do it all on the spot? I've been to some weird places and found you can usually shortcut the system and get...

Great rides!!

I went to them in the 80's ...and still go to them now.
To me they are THE definitive trail ride - great mixture of dirt/clay hills and track variations.

Back then we used to day trip it - now...

Eek Harley 1000 sportster

It was a late 70's one, looked kind of flat tracker-ish (maybe a sticker kit?) so I thought it would be fun. It broke down every single time I rode it, after the 4th or 5th attempt to get from...

Awesome report on both the area and the bikes! I am planning one next year and was looking at the 800 myself. Maybe I will wait to get one that someone else has sorted out first, as I like to ride...
