It's a long ride finding the perfect road boy - but you've found it.The gorge was fresh metal when we went through in Nov,it was harder work than usual for that road.

Looks like a fantastic ride in a republic I've never heard of!

Not much metal on that day plus it was tacky as it was wet, the KTM felt like it had more grip than on the seal and saw about 160k's at one stage when playing catch up camera man

Some of the best Ive ridden so far in 30 years

But the scenery can be a little distracting even on an overcast day

Dang! I was just there, and I SKIPPED the FWH. It had been pouring rain for a couple of days, and I was worried that the gravel section would be, well, the mud section. I'll have to live vicariously thru your pictures - so post some MORE!
And didn't Whangamomona elect (at different times) a goat and a poodle as presidents of their Republic?

We are going to do the trip again in the sun in a while (was raining this time) so will have a sunny prospective next time

I think the goat was actually a man , I got passport anyway so maybe can run for next Presidency



Don't mean to rave but even in the rain this may have been the best road I've every ridden in my Life (pics cant really give the full effect of riding for near 100miles like this)
