The YAMAHA Far North Adventure Ride, is New Zealand’s longest running (since 1992), non-competitive, off-road motorcycle event. The YAMAHA Far North Adventure Ride uses the 'Route Sheet' navigation method. On arrival at the event participants will be provided with route sheets and will use these to self-navigate the course .

For 2016 there is an all new location at the Taipa Rugby Grounds, nestled in Doubtless Bay.  Using their first-hand knowledge of the region Mike, and his crew, have put together an awesome route using the best tracks and trails on public, and private land. 

This event will include a dedicated Big Bike friendly ‘Adventure Route’, and an optional 'Trail' route: ensuring there is something to suit all adventurous off-road riders. Please note bikes must be road-legal as public roads are used to link offroad sections. The terrain that entrants can expect to encounter on this event are coastal farm tracks, pine forestry trails, stream crossings, native bush tracks, and back-country roads.
