Hello from New Zealand

Hi all, Dave here from Queenstown New Zealand.  I have a 2006 TTR250 and get out into the local hills with the guys when ever I can.  Attached is a picture of my bike in the fog the morning after a big 80km ride.

Ok, that's my mate Roger on his WR450 but 4 TTR's including mine (lowered by about 30mm) also went through.

Oh no, i've just posted a non TTR pic disbeliefcry

Here's me on my TTR a bit further down the river to balance it out smile

HI Steve, and the terrain is pretty clean as you can see from this shot.  We are up high about 1950 m above sea level on the Dolan's Ridge in the Nevis Valley just outside of Queenstown. The quick rise from 300m to this height also plays havoc with jetting.  A few of the bike including my ttr sputtered at this elevation.  Cheers Dave

 I must admit, mine spluttered a bit after that deep river crossing hmm

 

Great pic though, awsome scenery. I think we in Devon will be hard pressed to beat that biggrin

I am struggling to find scenic pics from Devon - mostly my pics are of mud and overgrowth! I think you win Dave biggrin

Here are a few that I could find. I was tempted to sneak in a few S Ireland mountain trail riding pics but I am sure that I would have been found out wink

Nothing wrong with your pictures they look great.  I have added a picture of another high mountain ride. This photo was taken at the the Neck between Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea in the South Island of New Zealand.  It was the most perfect day one could imagine and the views were not bad.  Cheers Dave
