- Bike: Suzuki DR650 ADV
Sunday was a random ride that didn’t end up with any gravel involved but was still fun nonetheless. Scotsman Valley Road, Kiwitahi Station Road, Hutchinson Road and Henry Watson Road make for a good twisty ride.
From there I wound up towards Te Aroha with a quick stop at Wairere Falls to see if it was easily walkable in bike gear. It’s not but you can see the Falls from the carpark and they look pretty impressive.
After Wairere Falls I shot up to Paeroa as the Annual Battle Of The Streets races were on. I didn’t go into the racing but wandered around the bikepark leaving Adventure Riding NZ cards on all the adventure bikes to promote the site.
There weren’t any unique or special adventure bikes in the bike park but there were a couple of other interesting bikes
Yamaha YZF SP
BMW Airhead RT Sidecar
BMW Airhead Scrambler
