You'd better fill those place-holders in quick smart or people will think you didn't do any riding at all after you left Nelson

Looks awesome Mark, reminded me of the complete lack of appreciation we have up here for colder weather...
I'm bloody glad I didn't take up Struans suggestion of a ride to the monkey this year, I would have crapped out from hypothermia by Taihape!



By the way, your all bastards going out riding while I am stuck in the office working.

The pylon track up the Porika is a gnarley little ride (I did it on the DB).
You would amost be beached by the saddle bags if you fell into the wheel ruts through there.

The Tahuna back beach used to have a lot of racing on it. You'll notice it's a nice big oval.

That would have been... fun

If you go after the school holidays finish I might offer to come along and stop Stanley from getting too frisky.

Molesworth - Rainbow plus most of the stuff I just did would be a pretty cool ride. Maybe Young1 would delay his holiday and come too?

that big fat trumpy might be interesting on the south end of the Porika though...

might need more than just third gear for this trip ....

I suspect, if asked nicely Mr Nordieboy could come up with something pretty flash in the way of a map (its his back yard after all).
