Nice RR

Nice RR 800, well done. I have pics of that hairpin in the dry somewhere....

Welcome to my back yard - when not travelling o'seas I live in Matiere, and reckon the FWH is a hidden gem tho it was recently voted NZ's best bike road.

The condition of the metal is generally excellent but our rural roads are maintained by regular visits by a roving grader. I exited the Rural Riders Rally thru there to find deep fresh metal and the grader hogging the road a couple of years back A great way to master a hangover!

If anyone would like a status report on it, I am happy to fang through there on the ST for a gecko!

Once again thanks for sharing

Pete

And didn't Whangamomona elect (at different times) a goat and a poodle as presidents of their Republic?

Looks like an awesome road! Got to love those steep NZ hills, fantastic scenery... so many roads in NZ that I rode the last time I was there that I would love to ride a thousand more times!!
