    If you go to the Coromandel and are keen on some gravel, you should try to make it up the top to Port Jackson.
    Just make sure you get fuel and food at Colville, as there is nothing at all after that.

    Hi Guys I'm back and finally made it to Coromandel! Well actually I'm in Whitianga now for 3 Days and heading for Fletcher bay tomorrow! Finally some gravel

    The 309 road sounds interesting to me too

    I've been in Tauranga for a week now and stayed on a nice farm with some Taiwanese people... walked up the Mt Manganui of course and walked a crazy track in Aongatete. The water crossings there were insane after all the rain at the weekend. But i highly recommend it.

    As mentioned I'll stay in Whititanga for 3 days and after that my next destination will be Rotorua.

    I have a lot of fun here, you don't have much traffic on the roads and if so they usually let you pass no truck driver in Germany would do that, they just keep driving uphill with 40km/h with heaps of cars behind them.
    What I noticed today that the tarmac is very rough. My Tires are so worn out already I might need another rear Tire in Rotorua if anyone knows a good shop or mechanic...


    So my Destinations so far:

    Auckland - Tauranga - Whitianga - Rotorua - (maybe Taupo after that)

    some Pics:

    First one is the Farm in Tauranga (the Asians loved the Bike lol)
    The second is at Mclaren Falls
