Thumb Kingston Flyer

Thanks for the pics and the adventure. Shirley and I were fortunate to ride in your corner of the world last year and were blown away. Suffering through the last bits of winter here and longing to be on the bike I ran across your report and the Kingston Flyer. We didn't get off highway other than an all too brief excursion down Skippers Road near Queenstown, a little tame compared to some off the tracks in your pics. Great stuff!

Cheers Steve

Hi Steve. Glad you enjoyed the report and pics. Been a few years since i have been down Skippers Canyon and it wasn't a highway back then. Can't imagine it has improved much either. Very tight, dusty and slippery. It would have kept you on your toes i would think. Hope you enjoyed the trip around N.Z.
We used to go off the main Skippers Road about halfway in and up a valley to a place called 100 Mile Hut. Cross the Shotover River about 6 times on the motorbikes just to get there. Only properly drowned my bike (Yamaha IT250) and myself once. Must try and track down some photos.
