Re: North America, First and Second.

GT Logistics in Auckland, New Zealand, did a great job getting our bikes to Houston Texas.

Re: New Zealand...4 wheels good, 2 wheels better?

The mountain pass I mentioned in my last update took us to the very pretty town of Martinborough where we stopped for the obligatory tea and cake. We had a stroll around the town centre before wandering off to find our lodgings for the night on the outskirts of Masterton. Despite not being so keen ...

So after years of telling you how good they are you’ve finally got a helinox. It takes time but eventually you get it! 😂😂😂😂

Re: An Australian lap attempt.....anti clockwise
