Had a fabulous day today taking 7 hours to cover 300km...

Rode with a great bunch of guys who looked out for the noob on the Vee with a knackered front tyre. Approximately a third of the ride was on really cool, windy, gravel roads. A bit of rain towards the end but otherwise pretty good weather-wise.

More pics here and some video to come.

I love that area there are some fantastic roads in there. Thanks for posting.

BTW. Is that a DR Big parked three along from the Strom?

Yep, a DR800 and I have to say it looks fantastic! It is a '92 model but looks like it just left the showroom - barely a mark on it. But he still left me for dead in the stony stuff...

V-Strom count for the day: 2 Vees, one Wee. Also 3 DR650's, 3 Transalps and 3 Beemers.

Me too, but I haven't ridden there for so long.
I used to work at Ohakea

Just got through editing some video from yesterday. There's quite a lot so I've created a playlist.

This is where I went:



Brilliant day!

Awesome mate! :thumbup:
You certainly know how to put a video together, like the choice in sound tracks you've chosen too.

Just gives me more reasons to ship the Vee to Unzud and ride it for a month! :mrgreen:

Yep, come on over man - plenty of country for ya to see. What is really cool about owning the Vee is that I'm finding more and more roads I've never ridden (I covered pretty much all of the tar in NZ) before and I'm seeing some great country.

Here's my write-up of Sunday's pootle.

Had another fantastic ride with a great bunch of guys on Sunday. Took the Vee down a very dodgy track and managed to make it through ok - not that keen to get that serious again.

Write-up, video and pics here.

Sunday's ride - a bit of a mishap but a fantastic day anyway!
