Bump, Just two and a half weeks to go now. Looks like COVID might stay away.
Better Book some Accommodation.
So here goes...
5th & 6th December
King Country Adventure Ride 2020
2 Day adventure ride through some of the best roads and tracks that the Waikato - King Country and the Central Plateau has to offer.
Day 1 consisting of approx 280 km`s of gravel and tarmac as we wind our way down to Taumarunui for the evening with afternoon tea at the Matiere Cosmopoliton club ( tea & scones ? )
Day 2 consisting of 160 km`s of gravel and tarmac roads as well as the off road sections of fishers track & the 42nd traverse
Start will be at 10.00am from the Caltex service station on the corner of Te Kanawa St & Maniapoto St, Otorohanga.
Day one will finish for the night at the Taumarunui Holiday Park 0800 473 281
Lunch stop at Pio Pio.
Maximum distances between fuel stops of 180 km`s.
Sunday we will leave from Taumarunui at 9.00 am to take the back roads out to fishers track.
Lunch at National park before going through the 42nd Traverse and we should be all finished by 2.00pm at the latest to give everyone time to get home before dark.
Me and a mate are booked but at a close motel. Proper tyres going on this weekend.
Yeah, nah, broken bike, broken body. Look forward to living vicariously thru all the photos & ride reports though....
Bollocks, driving around central Otago drinking wine with SWMBO.... (I'm not really complaining, doing the Haka and Danseys as well as any other bits I can find)
Doing the long way round (Taupo) this weekend, so if anything other than me falls off the bike I will give you a list of things to look for!
Me and some mates are planning a 250 ride through Fishers & the 42 - we last did it the weekend before lock down.
Wondering if we should plan for that weekend. Perhaps we could meet you mob at National Park if we can line it all up?
Or Otorohanga or Taumarunui?
Hi Steve, I just caught up about your accident last week.
Hope you heal up fast.
My ride reports are never up to your standards, so hopefully someone else will do a better job.
Hi Andrew, on Sunday morning we go through Fishers track before we get to National Park and then do Fishers track from south to north.
So Taumarunui would be best to catch us for both tracks.
Maybe @Box'a'bits could do a virtual report ?
I that 42 first or Fishers x 2?
I am hoping for a very quiet night at work, if it is, I might be able to attend, otherwise, I'll be sleeping...
Hi @Adventure Moto
I'm keen to come down form Auckland for this and was wondering , is there a gps file/route available or will it be a follow the leader type ride from the meeting point?
Thanks, I'll check in with team WR and see if they can have their arms twisted
New tyres fitted. Should be good enough to get me through.
Sunday Morning is back roads out of Taumarunui and then through fishers track going uphill from Retaruke ( west to east ).
Then lunch at national park and then the 42nd traverse from south to north.
Is normally a follow the leader type ride using the cornerman system.
I have got a route on google maps already done
If I can get time over the next few weeks I will do a GPS track
I'm keen, as is a friend on a DR250. I think @NZnic is also joining us. @clintnz claims to have a better offer that weekend
Hard to pass up on a better offer
Is it still on? I am considering joining the pack for Saturday. (If I am accepted) I have done Fishers track on the KLR, don't want go there with the V Strom. Will give a miss to the 42 for sure.
