Looks Professionally Done to Me

Good job. Looks like hard work riding that ride. I would think after one of those adventures; everyone would need a new bike.

This ride as with most bigger rides in NZ is across private property so the organizer has to be buddies with the owner or come to some financial agreement .

Notice in the first vid the question of noise level .

It is a fantastic country but in no way has a trail system that we are so lucky to have here in the States .

There is something magic about that high tussock country though .

Great videos and beautiful terrain.

I think this video is from some crazy person in Colorado, looks like Grand Junction area. I don't know how someone can ride a motorcycle with balls that big.

Hi Mark, Great videos. It's been less than a month since I sold my last dirtbike. This thread had me looking at new ones. I can't buy. But the desire is still there.
