    So I'm pretty new to riding and am told there's a nice beginners dirt /off road ride out near the army bombing range in South head, near Auckland, New Zealand. I am further told that if there's a red flag at the gate and the gate is shut, then the army are bombing and you cannot enter - seems clear so far....

    So I get there and the gate is open and even has an "open" sign on it ......... but there's also a red flag ???? - they probably forgot to remove the flag......... Seemed like a good idea at the time to continue on :p3rry

    So I have a great ride around the place and find a nice spot for lunch by an inlet .......

    I'm just ready to head off after lunch when an explosion rocks my little world to the extent that I felt my lungs compressing, once I stopped shaking I took the following video (click on image and excuse the french).

    Safe to say that just the red flag alone means they are using the range :lol3

    Agreed, here's my submission...

    Might not seem like it, but this was a very bad idea. Got my bike stuck on these train tracks and COULD NOT get off of them. I couldn't jump the rails nor find an exit. Shortly after this photo I went down the tracks a bit and the soft dirt meant I couldn't place the bike on it's kick stand without it falling over. I was stuck like a muther effer. It sounds silly, but it was a seriously bad idea .

    This part of the road wasn't bad... about 5 miles later, I realized what a bad idea it was. That road, on that bike, with those tires, and THIS rider... no good.
