Kiwis ride the Big Dog

3 days in!
The T Rail is a fantastic ride. At this point, we are very pleased to be on 250's rather than 650's, as washouts, trail closures etc require a few steep rocky climbs, and quite a lot of deep shingle and sand in patches.

The scenery is amazing, and locals have been very welcoming, but accommodation is certainly more expensive than what we experienced on the TAT 3 years back (but of a higher quality). Note: we don't camp unless demanded

We would suggest anyone on a big bike should consider hitting the highway after Howley as the dam soon after is closed, which demands a tricky water crossing followed by some deep shingle and sand for extended periods.

Tonite we are in Rocky Harbour after 600 km of the T Rail.

It has been everything we had hoped for, even following the tracks on GPS has not been a problem. Thanks Bryan!

Tomorrow we cross for Labrador and the mainland!
