    Hi, I am new to dual sport and fairly new to NZ. Based in The Kapiti. 45 yr old fella from the UK.

    Did some ‘green lanes’ on my old CRF 250 some years ago.

    Starting out here on drz250 – wanted small enough to explore forest trails etc. Busted my thumb on an organised trail ride last year.

    Now loving the back roads. 42 traverse last year was cool, kiwi road rocked. Recent trip around Wanganui river road and turakina valley road, swimming in the river to cool off in the middle of the day was a joy.

    Looking to meet up with other minimalist tourers (especially any local to Kapiti) – planning a two week tour from March 4th, first week North island kings country, gentle annie etc, second week rainbow and molesworth plus some add ons. Mabe not very adventure riding but seeing the country off the beaten track.

    Cheers all.

    Hi, I’m in Taranaki and ride a klr250. New to this site as well but would love to get out and do some more back roads and tracks. I’ll have a look at my work roster (I do shift work) and see what March looks like. Hopefully I’ll be free for at least some of it. Mark

    Hi Guy

    Just saw your post and I’m keen to tag along.

    I’ve just purchased a Kawasaki Sherpa 250 in Wellington and plan to pick it up in the next week or two.

    Are your plans to ride in the North Island still happening? Starting 4th March?

    I’m in Christchurch so need to organise flights etc.

    Cheers

    Phil
