Top effort, that

Thanks for the RR that I read in 90 mins. I'm exhausted.
I have a 990SMT that I can't imagine ever selling. It tours Australia remarkably well, if I stick to sealed roads.
I would love to do a...

Strange breed of cattle

Maaate, this is a complicated stage in your life. You are indeed the main character. No doubt about it. But that is only in this reality TV show. You have invested years in playing your role, lots of...

East Cape.....oooo yeah

Hitting the East Cape is certainly a visit to bygone days. Innocence, poverty, amazing views, plenty of history, too. Tolaga Bay was nice when I was there a few years ago. Some of the small...

Good point

Anna, you must be proud of what you have achieved. It has been a journey in life itself.
I do agree that I wouldn't get far with a grand in my pocket. And I am wise enough to not even consider...

Hey Porky!

Just kidding, but actually it is interesting to know how four years of touring affects the waistline. Are you heavier than when you started this journey? I think I can see a couple of extra kgs...

Phew...I've caught up.

Hi my friend (well you are even if you don't know it). It has taken me about 4 weeks of some serious reading to finally reach TODAY.

What can you warn us of?

Don't speed, would be one warning, eh?
Do you recommend others do a trip identical to yours or do you have regrets? Was the bike ideal? Would it have been much better value if you had a pillion? (I...

I can't understand why you would go flat out to Bluff??? How was the Milford Sound experience? Probably wet. If not, you had a dream come true.

I'm guessing it is one from his former bike hire company?
I never made it up to Takaka but that is on the plan for my next trip. There is so much to see esp if you ride off the main highway.

I'm getting that feeling again.

Where is my helmet? Tell the boss I'm crook and won't be in until mid Dec.
Oh, I miss the Sth Island. First time was in Dec 76. I did a lap with John Fitz, of Thunderbikes, Nelson fame. We had a...
