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
