I’ve had some feedback from locals on Takiri Road about some riders being a bit reckless along there. Please have respect for the locals and other road users where ever you are riding in New Zealand.

Hi, I notice Takiri road is on your map to ride, We live at the Mapiu end of it on a farm, I own & ride horses here, I am sick & tired of extremely loud motorbikes ridden by disrespectful riders going far to fast over it, they have put my horses in creeks, through fences & steel gates, While some are extremely courteous there is always that handful here ‘n’ there that ruin it for them, today I was very close to loosing my life because of 4 more idiots so I would like to ask that you please, please, please take our road off your map or at the very least stipulate that they slow the heck down! They are not the only people whom have the right to use the road little own trying to live there life on it
