The KTM dissapearing. Man they must be fast


The loaded GS.



MO


Cant remember where this was


On the road through Wimeha




I didnt get to take pics of the rest of the crew here. Alistair had a puncture and they were sorting that out.

If the final drive packs up i'll just hide it in these bushes





At the Tarawera River lodge. Good "digs" for the night.
Alistair was out on the road oiling his chain. Hmmmm if only the Beemer had a chain

An open stretch in the Motu


"Should I be worried yet"



Various pics at the Cape







"one of these things is not like the others"






Thats all the pics from me folks

Great ride report Steve. Wished that I'd joined you on this one. At least I got the GST done.

Cheers

it felt funny today not riding.
Thanks Guys for organising the ride. I found it particularly challenging fitting so many miles in but we saw some amazing scenery. i appreciate your patience at the back Phil as I was clearly losing my mojo on the long gravel bits.
You Naki boys make it look so effortless to ride so fast for so long.

Many thanks to my compadres Nutso & Aslan for their knowledgeable route finding & for putting me up & also big thanks to Michael & his new bride for the accom & dinner on fri nite.

I would be quite happy to reciprocate anytime.

Colin i'd like to find out how we got lost. i followed the GPS from the intersection where Mike saw us last. We carried on left the way he went & went all the way down to a valley that i'm sure the Mata school was. The pink line ended there & the navigational instruction said to run right onto the walkway???? however it from there we went to a farmhouse & got permission from a hot chick to ride up a private road to a junction then turn right onto Ihungia rd where we followed it all the way out to the main road. The exit on the main road had a sign pointing south saying Te puia Springs 9kms

I'll do a rambling ride report on Schmidts site later.

Ahhaa! Mata Rd Apparently Alister got a faulty instruction at that intersection also What GPS and maps were you running mate?
Did any one else have a problem on this intersection?
I know some of the guys running Garmin City maps had problems in the Pureora and around Te Teko.
On a better note it was awesome to meet you Padders and despite your ill humour re the distance between coffee breaks, your behaviour was by far, much better than most Southerners
Look forward to riding with you again

Sussed it already mate You turned left twice on Mata Rd. From Fernside Rd you turn left onto Mata Rd.
You should of then turned right off Mata Road onto Tuakau Rd.
The route you took with the aid of the lovely lass took you onto Ihungia Rd. Where you were when you joined the H/way 9 kms North of Te Puia is excactly where you were meant to be
Well done that man
So now my question is (as well as the other ones) did the pink line take you to the end of Mata Road and was the Auto reroute function switched off?
Did you know you can buy cup holders for BMW bikes?

My GPS was showing us the right way when Al's showed to turn off. My recalculation was turned off, but even though it was turned off it said it was recalculating 3 times on the Motu rd. We have learned a few things GPS wise on this trip. It seems to be crucial to run the same maps in the GPS as what the route was created with. The errors have come with the gps's dealing with the imported routes in different ways because of different map sets. Some of the gps's have a limited amount of waypoints which can cause problems. I think the smaller tramping based units would be damn hard to follow as the screens are so small and the amount of info given is limited. As I have an intercom to ( normally talk to Dawn ) it also means I get audible instructions as well.
The more we use them the more we learn. It's a hell of a lot easier to create a ride like this with GPS than to create an old school set of route sheets. To do those you need to go ride the course to create the route sheets.
GPS is definitely the future. With google earth linked to Basecamp (garmins route creating softwear ) you can see the roads and with there "street view" you can drop down to road level and look around. Awesome that's providing a camera car has been down the road, which it hasn't on a lot of minor gravel roads.
Enough rambling for now

Some pics from me. First from Matau on the road to Whangamomona - in other words the first coffee stop for Padmei!

First is Aslan.

Then Padmei leading the charge followed by Jose and Pilar, Ali and Phil (I think).

Then I just caught the international "entrant" sweeping around the corner.
