Banditrider's Pootles
 
Ok, time to shamelessly flog my blog (does that sound right?).

Had a great ride in hot conditions today: http://banditrider.blogspot.co.nz/20...ying-tank.html

Kia Ora bandit rider. Not sure flogging blogs is legal in some states but the ride sounds great and the weather most unKiwi from what I remember. I've always thought it would be great to get over there and tackle some of the roads I travelled when working there in the late 90's for a while. In the mean time it's Kiwi blogs to fill the void. Well done.

The Paras rock! They've put a lot of work in over the last couple of years sorting out the storm damage and improving the road - it is a great ride now. In winter you need to take it a bit carefully - not only can you come across icy patches but when wet there can very mucky slips across the road (really slippery clay type gunk). :woot:
