- Bike: Suzuki DR650 ADV
That’s a nice machine.
I was following @ragamuffin_oaters at a good pace on gravel, & suddenly he seemed to have gotten a second wind & disappeared into middle distance. I’d say he’s well bonded with the F800GSA.
Glad to see he made a good choice after what must have been 2 years mulling over the decision whether to change machine or not, and if so to what.
Then back onto Ohua Rd briefly, back acorss to the Mangaoapa Tunnel, through more forestry (this ride could be renamed the pine needles run), back onto Ohura Rd, Whangamomona Saddle, & at late lunch at Whangamomona.
Was the forestry section publically accessible or private? If publicaly I think you know what the next question will be.
Have to say Kiwi Rd has deteriorated markedly in the 3 years since I last rode it.
Are we talking the same Kiwi Road? I did it a few months back and it didn’t seem particularly bad
