I’m guessing the KTMs were related to the coast to coast: http://www.ktm.com/nz/news/nz/ktm-new-zealand-announces-coast-to-coast-adventure-rallye/

I’ve had a few moments with vehicles in the back blocks, and now I know to expect they don’t expect me. From a tractor taking up almost the entire road (and the farmers eyes looked like a possums in headlights – but to be fair the road wasn’t two vehicles wide anyway) to a truck and trailer unit rounding a blind gravel corner at such a clip he couldn’t stop in the entire distance between us (should be half) and I had to get off the road.

Unless you can see through the corner, treat them like a local is coming the other way not expecting you…
