    Hi. Thanks Viferpilot for the suggestions. So far I have permission to go over Castlehill station. Normally there is no access so it must be a case by case situation. Don’t know the situation after Herbertville so will knock on a farmers door. I will let you know later how I got on to Napier. Cheers Hans.

    Hi if you want to join in you are more than welcome. My plan is to go from Martinborough to Hinakura, Admiral rd to Gladstone. From there Te Wharau, Homewood, Riversdale beach to Whareama, Otahome rd and Castlepoint station to Mataikona. Pack Spur to Tinui and Annedale rd to Tiraumea. From there on I will be heading North, Okitio, Herbertville to Porangahau etc. to Napier. If anyone else is interested you have to let me know as so far I have only permission for myself to cross Castlepoint station. I will be in Martinborough at 8 in the morning. Will be a big day for me. If you want leave a text on 0279 372 526. Cheers Hans.

    Hi all posted a few posts on Face Book tracks around the Wairarapa area Featherson, Greytown and Lake Ferry so the Wellington Adventure Riders get an opportunity for a quick blast over the hill and straight into the gravel, Plan on doing a ride this Monday that being tomorrow. My bike is a F800GS been used and has knobblies, looking at doing Haurangi Road then into Sutherlands Hut. The road will present no issues looks like gravel on the map, however I have not done the tack into Sutherlands Hut, any rider out there that have done the track, if so what is it like, I’ll poke my BMW front fender in and give it a go. Cheers Dave

    Very possibly. I was supposed to be out today, but got caught out with a duff wheel bearing (I thought I had spares & realised after the bearing shop closed that I’d already used them).

    I’ve been hanging out for a ride for a while, & a more technical one would be better than a long day ride.

    Been a wee while since I’ve been in there…

    @cr650 @bassman @stephen-clark, cool so hopefully weather holds up for us to have a fun day.
    I have emailed Todd at Motomart to see if he could re-email my message to his list of adventure riders to see if we can get a bigger group together, not sure if he will do so but yeah should be fun nevertheless ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looking forward to it
