- Bike: Yamaha MT07 Tracer
Its a great ride, a friend and myself did it in February, it was a very enjoyable ride. My mate was on a Honda CRF250L and I was on a Yamaha TW200. The beach entry was well churned up and a bit difficult to keep going in any direction, the wheel ruts are like guiding rails but its just go slow and careful until you are onto the harder sand. We cruised at an easy 50km taking in the sites just as you have described, it is well worth the ride and the day we went was semi overcast with sunny patches. The bikes went really well and my TW200 managed 120 Miles before I did a top up, it a 2020 model and comes into NZ with a Miles Speedo. Do you have a track or coordinate for an exit point at the Kaipara inlet to get back onto the road and head south to Helensville?
Our next plan is to head to Dargaville along every dirt road we can fin then head South down to the light house.
