Gah. Tried to make push bike speedo work for the mean time.... Sure looks like that's going in the bin. 

 

We going to be doing alllllll sorts of speeds this coming trip. 

 

And none that I'll be able to actually calibrate. Heck yeah.

Progress so far, bikes have both been taken for a couple of run downs and have now been taken to an old man to get the final 2 stroke seal of reliability, am so amped even though ive never been just excited to do some dirt/ actual off roading tbh.

Will there be any space for a small bag on the recovery vehicles? I will attempt not to, but quite limited space on the old Chaly, unless I just roll fuel and a towel as my entire setup.

Yeah we'll figure something out for those that are really limited, just can't afford to have 40 people's worth of luggage on there is all, then no room for bikes when the inevitable happens. 

In summary, a little bit will be fine, maybe consider a waterproof bag

In Cambodia I saw a 110 towing a truck sized trailer covered in hay. It should have been physically impossible, but ....

OK, so I'm keen, I pulled Maria's YB100 out of the shed and it runs, so I will give it a tickle up and get it legel Beagle.

Is the first page a good indication of whats going on, or can someone give me a tl,dr? 

 

Also, Is anyone going through Taupo that might have space to get the bike to Whakachangi? I'm happy to pay gas etc.

Yuss. Fill out an entry form ASAP. It'll be removed by the end of the week. 

 

Page one is a good indication of the goings on. You'll need accommodation in Gisborne on Friday night and Hick's Bay on Sat because I think the batch is full. @BLIZZO or @datlow might have space for your Yibby.
