Pessimism at it's finest ladies and gentlemen!

The bars are a great place to mount the spot to autotransmit the OK signal brodude.

(For some reason, they do recommend at least 12" between another GPS reciever though)

The summit tunnel on the Fell Train line through the Rimutakas about 40km north of Wellington New Zealand. 600 metres long and (used to have) up to 30cm of water on the bottom.
During the late 1970's and early 1980's many national Enduro rounds held in Wellington included this tunnel. It was great fun with the lighting systems available then.
Many night trail rides were run through it on Friday or Saturday nights usually after the pubs closed.
The tunnel is now part of a Rail trail and is off limits to motorcycles.
This photo was taken in 1979 during a "two up" trail ride.
