    The 800 is a good entry into it. C1K is next month if you want to try a slightly longer distance.

    It's addictive...

    Nice videos Andy.

    Took the bride to Masterton on Saturday. No picks but it was perfect day for riding two up. That was surprising as the weather forecast all week was for heavy rain all day. Gotta take ya opportunities when ya can with the changeable Spring weather atm.

    Looks like a great ride upto the dam, I haven't been on that Rd since I was a teenager. Is it a public access Rd?

    Thanks it's a 2015 Zongshen RX3 250. The guy I bought it from was going to import them for the learner market and then they changed the regs and brought in LAMS approval, killing the 250 market stone dead. I got it with two sets of luggage, extra tyres a couple of screens and a spare oil filter, all with only 2000k's on the clock. I've done 8000 since I bought it.
