    "Dude, that's a lot of fork." Nice setup.

    I always wondered how much riding there was around Aukland. It was hard to figure out what the offroading possibilities were since we only road toured while down there. Duncan has posted some killer shots of the South Island, and I've seen stuff from the Wellington area too. It was all beautiful.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Nice, Enjoy!
    It's starting to look like the Gravity Dropper is becoming standard issue.

    Ts is probably thinking: "And it only took a year for them to get the point"

    Cheers gents

    Have been using a GD for awhile though this is pretty new as I started with the knob model which after awhile you learn you can use it more often if it was remote now its the bomb anyone looking at a GD get the remote version it'll save you the pain of learning the HARD way!

    Cheers all, the Spot rocks whew can' wait for a night ride!

    tscheezy there is a stack of riding around Ak next time ya over this way give us a heads up be happy hook you up!

    Whitford in the dry, Huna like the fiords in the South Island, Riverhead wicked in the dry for tech and killer in the wet for Clay Mud still fun,
    Woodhill is our flattened version the North Shore in yr parts though sandy in summer, and thats just the popular spots!

    Spent 3 weeks in SI over summer shes the best IMO so eveny Duncan every day he libes there, Im from down those there parts and have hankered to get back home, one day still its all the more enjoyable when I visit.

    Some pics of SIsland as well.

    I'd love to see some rides from Up North. If you are heading down south anytime I recommend checking out the Reefton area and the Wakamarina track. The trails near Alexandra were perfect for the 5 Spot. They put a huge sh!t-eating grin on my face.

    I heard there are about 40 Turners in NZ now.

    Cheers,

    I haven't ridden the Reefton region be keen, next time on way through will check it out, Alex & the clock used to be my backyard growing up used to MotoX Harescramble Enduro their, love to get the Spot up to Thee Thee hill course it used to be dam near impossible to ride a 200/250 even the old 490s used to have a hell of a time trying to ride up it but going down on the Spot would be great.
    the shist rock is a natural jump drop nirvana, I feel a rood trip comin!

    Yeah I moved from my trusty ID to the Spot (TNTnd) and I am impressed, still need to explore the bike more yet but it fits like a glove!

    Now that's my idea of a dream trailhead parking lot, where you can mountain bike or sea kayak, my two favorite activities.
    Want to ride in this life and the next? Ask me how.
