A Free Day and we explore Pureora Forestry Park
Being based at Taupo in the centre of the North Island quite often, we find we are forever on the lookout for interesting places to visit and to explore. The day was looking great so looking for a little action, and, also having a club-ride looming, we decided we would head over to our very favourite scenic forest park and find some new roads to take our Gravel Riders over. My son Tim owns the white F800GS and RIDES THIS BIKE LIKE IT IS TOTALLY STOLEN!!! Yes, pillion BEWARE!!! Son Tim and husband Jim both being seasoned enduro VETS, well what more can be said!!! Tim's partner Jess of six years will always be pictured on the back of. She has fast become accustomed to some ADVENTURES of her own on the back of this big bike. For this PLAY DAY with the boys I decided to take along my small Yamaha XT250cc as often Jess enjoys to ride the bike and we take turns. Jess being very new to riding bikes in general so this terrain offers a great base for those wanting to get to grips with basic tracks and trails. Excellent, so we share the bike and today it was Jess's turn to learn.
Jess and Tim - we are entering the Pureora Forestry park. The big F800GS looking MEAN!!!
Taking a brief break after travelling over many of the side roads.
Tim decides to put the XT Yamaha 250cc through some paces as we find an overgrown trail and need to find if That Trail Leads Someplace??? The trail narrowed as Tim progressed further through it and ended up in deep mud, TIM LOVED IT - but not great for the two bigger bikes. Times like these the small XT comes into her own, and the BOYS love it. The more mud the better!!!
JIm now powers the big F800GS easily through it. The big bike loves this terrain.
