I went a few years ago on an XR600R from the Tauranga side to see how far I could get.
Not far it would seem. Went over a rise into a big hole and lost the whole bike under the mud. I was still sitting on it but only my chest up was sticking out of the muck….
Took a few hours to haul the bike out by myself with a strop and another hour to get it going again…

Damn 4×4’s have destroyed the track, used to be awesome…

Can’t remember the time of year I went but it was not winter, the track itself wasn’t that damp but the hole I ended up in was big enough to stay wet year round I would say.

Don’t know what the rest of it is like, went home after that character building exercise never to return…
