It’s that time of year again! My bro has come out to #newzealand for a van tour! Although the van I have been building has problems due to maintenance I was assured was done hadn’t been!

So panic bought a old ford transit and heading down south from #auckland to #queenstown for fun and work. Theresa the bike will follow me in a couple of weeks too!

Found this guy running down the road at me in the northland of #newzealand and found an old snatch strap to fashion a lead while I found his owner....

All good.... good deed done 👌😁

Cape Reinga-

The last few days I took up some gravel tracks here in New Zealand up the Cape Reinga (furthest north part of New Zealand).

Initially left on the Saturday with 3 other riders lead by Jao (I think that’s how you spell it) on his Ktm 690 rally build, was great fun to meet up with other like minded riders and be led around their back garden. Was good fun with great views and gravel tracks.

Unfortunately about half way into the first day the Ktm had an electrical fault and with a new battery and many attempts to fix it, it’s just wasn’t running well enough to carry on.

So the lads called it to go back to Auckland and with no way to charge my phone to navigate I did also.

Upon return I serviced my bike and fixed a few things to head out again the next morning up to the cape, and I was successful and met up with another group from the ride on my way back on the Monday. Here’s a few pictures from my trip....

I came away with some new friends and some skills for riding on gravel smoothly through watching the other guys and some wise words from Rob Roy.

Thanks for everyone was great to meet you all and have blat on the bikes!

A big thanks goes out to Matt who is a fellow Xt660z rider (sensible man), who took me out around Coromandel yesterday, a couple of hours out of Auckland (south eastish) and showed me some dirt roads to fang around on and some beautiful sights too!

Not to mention yet more Tarmac twisties....
It's great to have local knowledge as I wouldn't have gone down some of the roads he took me as they didn't look too interesting but my god they were! Beautiful landscapes and sights!

One to remember and thanks again Matt! I could spend a weekend here

Had to get out on the bike today..... started out on the bike pissed off and stressed out about many things...

100 plus k's later I'm fixed and happy again!
Had a fix of Tarmac and twisties and even a bit of dirt... although it was just a recent landslide across the road.

Had some memories of the great ocean road here but with less traffic and better corners, only downside today was the fact it was overcast and couldn't see very far!

Need to find some more dirt next weekend anyone?

Hi Rob, Just been catching up with your motovlogs and had a good laugh. Didn’t realise you could get so many punctures in such a short space of time! Very envious of you driving that huge beast of a tractor. Looks like you’re having a great time. Long may it continue! Keep it coming! All our love, Paul and Iris xxxx

Hey rob great catching up with you on the Off Centre Rally on the Birdsville Track, Jeeze! you put some beer away mate, still reckon your a f**king legend, might catch you on FB and remember there’s a warm bed and a cold beer waiting for you if you get down into Adelaide, Brian
