Looks like a great ride.

Have fun and post up some great pictures so I know where to go visit when I get to do my bucket list someday.

Looks like a spectacular trip. What appears to be an exceptionally nice twisty bit between Riwaka, Takaka Hill, and Upper Takaka should be grand fun.

Have to make it a point to visit Middle Earth one of these days.

Safe riding!

Probably just me, but I never sleep much before a bike or moto ride, like a kid on Christmas Eve.
