    Scenic drive is great going from Titirangi through to swanson and back again... just gotta watch out for people coming out of driveways.


    You can peel the nurburgring sticker off my car if you want.

    can make some of these? It's literally the scenic drive road, going through swanson as the pit

    might make the road trace slightly thinner.

    Well this is the thread to say where they are.....

    Yup, all mentioned on here previously. Twin Bridges, Mangamukas, Matauri loop, takes the numbness out of SH10, Kohoukohou to Mangamuka bridge or via Broadwood & Herekino, Waipoua forest and lots of gravelly bits to join the dots if I'm that way inclined.
    An interesting aside from the Old Russell road is a quick but exhilarating fang to Bland Bay. Dead end obviously but a fantastic bit of road. Flows along a ridge line before it knots it's way down to the Bay.
    Manopausal.

    Paekakariki hill road


    This road is lots of fun but really dangerous! The 4wds have a nasty habit of being on the wrong side of the road. As with any other good one there is often crap on the road.

    Aside from the moments of near death there are some wicked combos of bends.
    Seems the guy in front must think he is a 4WD as well judging by the time spent on the wrong side of the white line

    Yes lovely stretch of highway to open her up. I passed a couple of cops sitting on the side without their KA radars on. Wonder if they had they lazer guns out instead.

    Was on that today having waaaaay too much fun. Awesome surface though with no surprising "repairs" unlike so many other SHs these days....

    Not entirely sure how to explain this but, on the way to Turangi from the turn off from Whakamaru is a great road, theres one bit in particular that has nice sweeping corkscrew corners one after the other up the hill, its a few k's past the turn off to go to Taumarunui, Someone may know where i mean
