providing its a 5 speed one, it should do more like 140 ;)

It probably does, yeah. But I'll keep it at around 100, that way I can run it on the smell of my farts. :)

I succumbed to the hype and watched the Air NZ cougar ad. That's actually pretty funny :D

I was shown the ad on youtub on boxing day, it had about 2,000 hits. I showed to to a friend about a week late, it hadn't got any more popular by then. And now? With a little controversy, it's done over 140,000 views. One of these marketing methods seems to work better than the other...

The top end of whakarewarewa trail network - something that gets touted as being the best has a lot to live up to - this place did not disappoint !! Multiple laps of Billy T, Corners, Huckleberry Hound, G-Link, Rollercoaster, Hot X Buns, Be Rude Not To, Old Chevy, (plus 2 others I can't mention cause they're 'closed' - NO logging action in sight or sound - what is that all about !!??) were silly good - gotta go back SOON :love: :)

RIGHT, I'm sorry, but you are fucking moron, and you like the handful of other munters that insist on riding Split enz and Pondy DH whilst the Forrestry company have closed them off to us, are potentially doing all Mountian bikers and users of the whaka forest a disservice.

the reason why the forestry company close these trails, is that potentially the logging crews can work on saturday and sunday as well (especially if they aree behind due to weather or diffucult tree's) so rather than say yes its closed over the week, but might be open on the weekend, they just close it, rememeber its their forest, and we need to respect that fact.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Do not ride trails closed by the forestry compaines for logging, as if they catch riders in their, or worse you get killed because of a tree thats hung up and falls unexpectedly, we risk not being able to access the forest at all
