Cruising the Coromandel ~ TeneCoro

About this time last year I traded in my Yamaha Tenere XT660Z, I  thought it was about time to put together a couple of videos to show you what I used to get up to on it. 

The Tenere lived up to its reputation of being a great all-rounder and was well suited to exploring the Coromandel Peninsula, being based in Tairua (the bike that is). It was a great nimble machine on the twisty sealed sections and absolutely awesome on the gravel and beyond. 

Part 1 follows the highway north out of Tairua where our bach is, this is one of my all time favourite roads over what’s know locally as Pumpkin Hill. 

 

Part 2 features a ride north of Coromandel town following the gravel roads up the western coastline and along the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula

    Thanks for the post. We have ridden the Coromandel roads so often together, (although obviously not the gravel roads since you are the only one who has had a suitable bike), your movies bring back very happy memories.
