Update update , Raglan to Kawhia

This Road is in good condition, I expected it to be a bit muddy after all the rain we have had in the last few weeks, but that was not the case. I did this Road two up with a road tyre on the front and a tkc70 on the rear, I would recommend a least a tkc or equivalent on the front as well, I would not recommend road tires on this road as there is a lot of loose gravel, also a bit of caution just past Ruapeke camp ground, there was some very wet clay in two areas only about 5 meters long at a stretch. But enough to give me an “Oh Shit!” Moment. Would have been ok if I had a different tyre on the front, (getting new one next week) great scenery all along this Route, thoroughly recommend it.
Side note, The falls road still had a detour in place and says the road is closed.
