    We’ve been growing steadily over the past 6 months but for the site to really flourish and grow it needs your input. 350 people is more than enough to have an active community.

    The idea behind Adventure Riding NZ was to create a dedicated Adv community in NZ, sharing info and knowledge in ways that are not possible in other forums, and especially share all those great tracks there are to ride, many of which are only discovered through local knowledge.

    The first part of that was for me to share all the tracks I’ve ridden over the past 5 years I’ve been adv riding, and they are now all up on the site bar 1 or 2, but there’s so much more out there that you guys (and gals) and all riding.

    Anyone can organise a ride through the site, it’s not just for me to lead the way and I can’t be all over the country doing it. When you’ve been for a ride tell us about it and share we you went so others can find out about it and go there too. I will be regualrly be doing it in the Waikato now though and I have some ideas for weekend events early next year for all.

    If you have a GPS track of your ride send it to me, I can clean it up and do everything needed to display it on the site, and you will get credited for it.

    I can see from the membership numbers, download stats and the daily site visits that people are getting value from the site, but if no one is putting back in the site will stagnate and it won’t be worth my contining with it and donating the $100 plus time is takes to keep it operational each month, so share your tracks, post in the forums, organise rides and events, make a community for all NZ adventure riders.

    Thanks

    Eddie

    The members count has increased quite a bit this month and a new record for downloads within a 24 hour period was set today so it’s a good time to update the numbers

    I do hope this website succeeds. Next year (May) I will be able to upgrade and get back onto a dual purpose bike. Until then I will just do my own thing and keep an eye on this site.

    Thanks Awa355, it’s all down to people posting in the forums and using the site. Heaps of people are downloading the tracks and with 430 registered members here on the website and another 200-300 followers on Facebook there’s plenty enough to have meaningful conversations going and a great local community.

    If people post and the site seems active then more people post, but if no-one posts then no-one else does either so feel free to share your ride reports and pics, it looks like you are doing pretty well on the scooter as it is.

    Hi Ed

    I hear you loud and clear here.
    It’s the same for every forum/ group/club/ etc out there….and always has been.
    There are always one or two that keep pushing things forward for the 100 “sleepers” that are happy to take any benefit coming along, are the first ones to moan and whinge, but the last (if ever!) to contribute anything (anything of real value that is, forget the often considerable volumes of empty fluff + waffle.

    AusTouring had swollen to nearly 1800 “members” a few years ago and was starting to gather critical mass, attracting a dozen or more sign-ups a day while steering away from its core intent and values, getting increasingly drowned in insubstantial junk posts and politics.
    Down to around the 300 mark now, we were lucky to have seen things early enough and hang onto the active core of around 50-70 members that have been carrying the place since day 1 (not all the same folks, but many of them, plus newbies of the same ilk attracted by the substance of the place).

    Numbers don’t mean anything….just look at KB or ADVrider.

    You’ve got something good here…keep it small and content-rich, the rest will bugger off to FB/Twitter anyway.

    Thumbs up!

    Cheers Glitch. Austouring.com was part of my inspiration to set something up myself.

    Member numbers are continuing to steadily rise since I started keeping track of them.

    Downloads of Service and Owners Manuals have proven to be popular since I added them, especially for the DR650.
