The Taranaki Tunnel Tiki Tour

I feel it’s about time for an Urban escape.
So looking to get away for a few days in October, hoping that the thermometer lifts a bit. 
I’m still trying to lock down family arrangements but it will be somewhere in the second week of October. I plan to be away 5 days and camp. 
Anyone welcome to join for what time they can 1/2 day or more. I will be taking in some of the gravel roads described in @Adventure Riding New Zealand, like Waipuna rd,Hauturu rd, Pomerangai rd, Taumatamaire rd and many more. Plan is to tour, take photos and try and plot route with descriptions for ARNZ site.
Days will be 300 – 400kms each and a 300km fuel range needed. If anyone is interested roll maps and route will be available as will any other information.

    Hi @rob_roy

    Someone asked if ok for big bikes….

    I did the a lot of the north Taranaki back roads end of summer, two up on our Vstrom. They were great. The section from the north end up to the kiwi road tunnel was by far the most difficult bit, but I would say ok on any bike if taken carefully. Wouldn’t like to meet a fourwheel drive coming down though! Everything else was really cruisey, stock on the road was our biggest issue.

    The road from Aria through to Ohura was fantastic. Will find the name and post it here.

    Best of luck….nice AT you have there..,what year?

    Cheers
