    Can't accurately say because last time I rode the S1000RR was over a year ago. Only rode it for only an hour too. It didn't have a quick shifter. Felt similar as sports bike but felt shorter and much smaller from seat to the handle bars. Great fun to ride, as most sports bikes are. Oh, the throttle felt twitchy. S1000RR was so user friendly and smooth.


    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.

    Yes. I've heard thst the Beemer is a little more sophisticated. That the Gixxer is a bit raw and brutal.

    Just ride more.

    Cured a bit of Cabin Fever and clicked off a quick couple of hundred Kms, along the way dropped in on an old haunt for a gander

    Been cooped up the last few days, managed to get out to the Wairarapa today...

    I love Ngawi, of Cape Palliser. Land of stunning landscapes, badass dozers and cheeky humour.

    Photo 1 is approximately position of memorial for 12 sailors on Zuleika ran aground 1875

    the water can be treacherous, it can also deliver surprises

    take care when going toward Ngawi on the downhill, muppets turn out of Whangaimoana beach road with caravan taking up whole of road without looking, i very narrowly missed getting taken out here last year

    the 7 k of gravel to the lighthouse is ok, just the walk up to the lighthouse in ATGATT can be interesting in full summer heat.

    great areas to ride in Wairarapa

    I didn't know about the memorial, I'll have to look for it the next time I go there. On that note there's a very distinctive double row of oak trees lining a stretch of Longbush Road, just north of Gladstone. They're huge and form a closed arch over the road. I've enjoyed riding through it for years, it's like a green leafy cathedral with a road through the middle... anyway it's a WWI ANZAC memorial. I'd found out a couple of years ago when talking with a local, there's a tree for every man lost plus two spare in case of lightning etc.

    I'll watch out for Whangimoana beach road then. It's similar on White Rock Road (to Tora Beach), a brilliant little Martinborough to nowhere there-and-back with lots of fun twisties. As soon as you hit gravel or the posted black spot, think seriously about turning back. Lots of the locals drive big SUVs towing huge boats on that road, they don't waste time, and it gets downright hairy at times on the narrow bits.

    I will keep an eye out for those.
    i would have noticed the trees, always slow down for those types of areas.
    similar to Fitzgerald’s glade near to rotovegas

    theres a nice scaled aeroplane mem near to Gladstone, I will try and figure the location, it’s on a straight bit of road with nice parking. And drop it on here if I remember.

    I know the one, it's on the same road that the Gladstone pub and domain are on, go to the pub from Gladstone, go past the pub and around the next corner or two and it's on the left.
