Well were do I start... a long long long time ago, well a couple of months ago, I mentioned to my mate AngryAds about doing a Rallye ride in our home state of Western Australia whilst we were out trail riding. Ads was like, "ah I dunno, my fitness might not be upto it and dunno if I want to go down that oute..." Well a few days later I get a message from AngryAds saying, "I'm in man, let's do it! I wanna ride the Rallye"... I, in my typical mixed up style, send a message back going, "Uh, mate, umm, I think I am gonna go ride Cambodia instead... Wanna come with???"
Ads now getting to know my personality a little better decides to go with the flow and just say "Yes" to whatever I suggest from this point on, as bottom lime he just want to get the frack out of Dodge for a while. So the planning for Cambodia starts, organised, in depth research and planning. About this time we decided to invite a third player in this Holiday in Cambodia... Sean@Yals. Now in keeping with this new organised me, I wrote up a two page list of all the questions anyone could have about a trip to Cambodia on dirt bikes and organised with the lads to meet at a bar to finalise details and answer all the questions... cutting to the chase... we got to bar, had a beer, looked at first question "1. The weather in April in Cambodia, is it gonna be ok?" and new team mate Sean says, " Uh, I have been there at this time of the year and it is impossibly hot, I think we should leave it too the end of the year!"
Umm where do you go from here??? Damn it I still want to go somewhere... a couple more beers... some salt and pepper squid... "Hey how about we go ride New Zealand for a couple weeks?" and so the story begins...
OK Sit down, relax, SUBSCRIBE to this report, as it is gonna be a LOOOONNNGGG one and in my opinion it should be bloody good. You will laugh, you will feel pain, you will go WOW at some of the photos and ultimately you will probably book a ticket to NZ it is probably the best country in the world to ride a motorbike!!!!
Now you are probably wondering why the very first photo of a ride report about dirt bike riding in New Zealand shows me and some donuts, good question! In order to get enough brownie points to get 17 days away spending loads of money on a holiday without my wifee, I had to get my wife some nice pressies! Sooo I got some of her absolute favorite fast food, Krispy Kreme donuts... mmmmm donuts! Only problem was , they werent going to last the next couple of weeks in my luggage whilst we bumped around the islands, so I ate 'em! Umm more on this at the end of the report... all will be ok I promise!
Well I gotta go and take the wifee to a bbq so I will continue this later... one more pic to keep your interest...
