Once the rutted stuff starts it’s fun going, though I was having a few issues due to having filled up the 30+ litre Safari tank just before the ride making the front end a bit heavy.
At this point the tank was further forward than the front axle and the suspension fully compressed so I couldn’t ride out of it. Thankfully Brainflex was available to drag the front wheel forward.
100 metres from the South end of Pikowai Road we struck a bit of a problem, there’s a been a slip which has washed away a section of the track.
