Nice work. 1600km in NZ is so much harder than it is here in mainland Australia, where we have lots of long straight roads. If you collected sufficient documentation you can submit it to the Iron Butt Association and get a certificate from them too.

Occasionally I was riding attached to a group but mostly out on my own which I actually like - don't have to worry about keeping an eye on anyone.

Yeah, I thought of doing that (and the organisers would have helped with the documentation too), but decided not to in the end and just enjoyed the ride.

Awesome ride. :clap: An SS1600 in NZ is a definite achievement. Well done on the certification.

I've ridden a few Iron Butt Association certified in Oz, maybe I'll get to NZ before I get too old.
