    Nice run, but...Yuck!
    Just when it was getting a few warts and bumps to make it interesting.
    That steep-ish drop (from the Clyde side) into that single creek crossing just had the right bumps and washouts for a pucker-moment
    last time we rode it.

    I visited the South Island years ago and spent a few weeks touring around with the missus.
    The most breath taking places I have ever seen, and the friendliest people ever.
    What a special place in the world.
    This glacier had me staring for hours in typical dumbstruck Aussie awe!

    Mt Barossa Last weekend. Still plenty of snow down here. Cold to. Hopefully get out on the bike next weekend if the rain buggers off!

    Got a few new bits on the 500, so went for a test ride into skippers.

    The road has been recently graded and is in excellent condition, except for the giant ruts that I left on the sweeping corners. :super

    That looks like a very well set up and very efficiently packed bike. Nice pictures.
