Hey mate and welcome aboard. Im not much use as im also exceedingly shit off road so no tips from me. I do enjoy the gravel though. Im also in Auckland.

I watched a couple of your vids and not having a left hand doesnt seem to be slowing you down.

Im interested in the rally. Ive got a drz250 parked in Otago and am thinking of upgrading/changing it. Rally is on the list as is another drz400. What sort of highway cruising speed can you maintain if theres a bit of headwind? My 400s handles that ok while the 250 struggles a bit.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Ps…i got a four man tent. I can almost get the small bike in… Agree that for not much more cost theres lots of space for all the shizzle you end up with on a camping trip
