    im thinkin we need to keep the best ones unmentioned
    some real good rides not listed in here, but i wouldn't mention the southern scenic route over blackmount to manapouri or even some of the shorter ones we have done

    You will need:
    • A Hayabusa
    • Radar detector

    Duration: 39 minutes and 21 seconds (hopefully)



    Just kidding, it's the noctoriously the most boring route NZ have.
    Bit of a dredge here but i know a guy that rolled off the ferry in picton bang on midnight and walked in the door at home just south of waimate at 4.30am was an awesome trip, apparently, but that was a few year ago of course and could neither confirm or deny this happened

    One of my fav local rides is Springfield to Greymouth to Westport to Reefton to Springs Junction to Waipara. And Waiau to Kaikoura. Geraldine to Fairlie is fairly nice. Why has no one mentioned Danseys Pass? All riders should do this - just remove steering stops first as its all gravel and heaps of sideways action with reasonable dropoffs. Or you might just go slow and enjoy the scenery/solitude as you are unlikely to meet another vehicle the whole way. Sorry no maps - dial up, mutter mutter, fuck fuck

    Not when I went through. Then there was the gates to open and shut.
