  1. I imagine @Mof means to St Arnaud, then down the Wairau on the road to Blenheim?
  2. Great ideas here, here is a ride I did about 12 years ago, it's ~500km total so probably not bad over 3 days, but I'd tweak it with @Pee Dubs sounds ideas. https://www.wikiloc.com/trail-bike-trails/20091114-seven-summits-ride-89525114
  3. Does this mean that @ajg193 will be into it? So confusing....
  4. @terceldude https://photos.app.goo.gl/MBY81UZp6TmNbJya9 Here is a NZ new one that I spotted this year. The owner is local and has had it from new, her grandchildren go to the same school as my kids. If I see her around I'll ask her on your behalf.
  5. The Maungatapu is a little gnarlier than that, but it still looks a lot more comfy than @Chunky_ts ride!
  6. Yeah I'd love to see a twist and go at this event, but it probably needs to be capable of an 80km/h cruising speed. Last year the slowest bikes appeared to be new Honda Monkey 125s (they were fine, but pretty consistent). I want something for this event, last year I rode/cheated on a WR250R. If someone has anything interesting, road legal, <200cc and is interested in a running/reg on hold 1983 Honda FT500, hit me up.
  7. I have a possible top of the south island loop planned for a future ride that includes these plus quite a few other adventures, we'll see what the appetite is post Molesworth 2022.
  8. There's plenty of side trails on day 1 like Mt Altimarloch, or other bits and pieces towards Hanmer if you went in the Rainbow a wee way. https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/gps-tracks-rides/south-island-tracks/
  9. Your motor in one of these, oh my! https://www.trademe.co.nz/3241799129 Does anyone know anything about them?
  10. Little bro is after a combo oil pressure/boost gauge for his 180SX Type X. This funtionally is sweet, but doesn't look that great. What does the hive mind of Oldschool reckon? https://www.shopsaas.com/saas-dual-gauge-boost-0-30-psi-ana-oil-press-140-psi-dig-trax-series-sg611230?fbclid=IwAR2KQqQ73Ew48wN09SviaAW6KycIBPPqZGnzvNbrLhkl128JvDUHvVrIj5s
  11. I'd like to see the support team go through at zero cost in fuel/accommodation/dobros when not driving if possible. They make a huge difference to how much fun these rides are.
  12. Although on closer inspection, these still appear to be shipped out of Australia.
  13. Duckduckgo is the answer https://starrinstruments.co.nz/temperature-monitoring/45-temperature-strips-8-level.html
  14. If you swapped directions, I'd say your descriptions for day 1 and 3 would swap, with possible almost falling asleep on the third day! I'd be keen to host/organise a Nelson pub crawl - would make me feel better about missing day 1/half of day 3. I'm still looking to swap my FT500 for something more event sympathetic.
