Thread: Waikato rides

  1. #166
    This has been a great thread, I've enjoyed all your wanderings, and it's given me an incenntive to explore east of SH1...I've always thought it was just boring flat land and straaight roads. So, why have you sold the bike ?

    Thank you awa355 for this thread and for sharing your adventures with us. For me your posts have shown to remind me what beauty exists in our countryside sub-102 km/hr.

    I hope this isn't really the end.

    I too, as others have said, will miss your ride reports and photos. Thank you for taking the time to put the reports and photos together. All the best for your retirement. Cheers.

    Me too. Thanks for showing us your back yard, sad that there isn't room for more rides in your life just when you have more room to fit them in.

    All the best, and I really hope you get a chance to add to this thread.
    Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon

    Coming to me soon too, and decisions will have to be made, and a shed cleaned out. Despite what younger generations think, not all Baby Boomers are going to reitre millionares.

    I drove back from Taupo to Auckland this afternoon. I am completely over SH1 and SH27 / SH2, so when Google Maps suggested a route through Whakamaru, and Te Awamutu, I thought, why not.

    Very enjoyable drive from Taupo to Te Awamutu. Would be fun on a bike, especially Waipapa Road.

    The distance was actually less than SH1, and I doubt it took any longer given all of the roadworks on SH1 at the moment.

    Our Central North Island IAM group had a cracker of a ride through the Waikato back roads in January. We really are blessed with some stunning roads with virtually no traffic. This is the route we took on Google Maps : https://goo.gl/maps/AcSWHhstJHF2
