Today I rode the 42 Traverse solo on a KLX150L. The transit time was 2 hours, including stops, from Kapoors Rd carpark-SH47 to Ohwhango-SH4. I encountered one group of knackered mountain bikers and a small digger creating drainage points for the track (lots of loose debris in places) from about the half way mark.

There was an empty Mitsubushi station wagon (yes, a family car!) that was firmly wedged in a 4×4 rut about 9 km in from Kapoors Rd carpark!
