    Does anyone know anywhere in Hamilton where I could get an exhaust sniffer stuck down the pipe on my bike at idle to see if it’s running lean or rich?I only need to know at idle.

    Always keen to get out there ride alone most of the time but would be good to have a couple of other riders with me from time to time.

    Just saw your reply now. I went for a trail ride instead. Thanks for the reply. I am always keen for a ride on weekends.

    Hi all,
    Going to stay in Taumaranui this weekend (30th Jan – 1st Feb) and plan on doing the 42nd traverse and probably the Fisher track and another road recommended by Eddie – can’t recall name but is on this site (yes, should have found it first). Saturday or sunday or any combination. Will be staying at the Taumaranui camp south of town with wife, Caravan and dog. Riding my XR650R and happy to do the ride on my own but if anyone is keen sing out.

    Hi @bruce_follas

    Just found this website and also ride mostly on my own. Would be very keen to get more involved in some rides. Happy to do sealed roads, unsealed roads and some easier single track rides.

    Dave.

    Hi @damian

    Just found this website and also looking for someone to ride with. I know a couple of people with sport bikes but nobody with an adventure bike. Love twisty sealed roads, unsealed roads [Like Raglan to Kawhia] and would like to get up to some easier single track rides.

    Dave.

    Since we are now allowed out for picnics, I am thinking of taking a ride out from Hamilton to the Te Akau coast road – staying within Waikato lock down boundary – and taking the billy for a brew up with lunch. Weather looks good early next week. Tuesday (2nd) current choice. If there are any other workshy types who can ride mid-week, feel free to message me to sort timing.
    NB: I am seriously lacking in skill and only travel at the upper end of mobility scooter speeds, so faster/less slow riders may want to pass.
