    I was inspired by this (and a bit bored tbh) so I tried it in my garden today. I did a couple of test circuits with the mtb then fired up the drz. I realised the kid is cheating by having a tiny bike and being very small himself. That's plainly unfair. There's one point where I have about 5mm either side of the handlebars and can barely maneuver the bike through walking so don't gave the nerve to go feet up yet.

    Have borrowed a go pro so might post something up later.

    Lol, on some of our trails the gap between trees is 10mm to narrow for the bars, take a dab. Trust me, take a dab.

    I came across this guy when looking at bike reviews. He has recently branched out to do interviews. These two vids are from a visit with an amazing motorbike builder. They're quite long but really worth it if you can find the time.

    The first one is about the bikes he has built.

    The second one i found hilarious because the guy lets him ride a 1970 Kawasaki. The interviewer only started riding 10 years ago and had never ridden a vintage bike or a 2 stroke, had never kick started one and had never ridden with a 1 up 4 down gear box. Those of you yearning for your Kwackers and RamAir Suzies will enjoy the last ten minutes of the second one.

    For me, its the English country lanes that freak me out. They seem hella narrow.

    Ahipara, Te Paki stream, Scotts Point and an ice cream at Cable Bay for those who have yet to sample (Far) Norfland.

    A bit of Tapotupotu access road, too, if I'm not mistaken.

    He's doing build vids now. A recent was the first ride on his Z1 Kwaka 6.

    In his spare time...
