Two circus-size tents, one for food and one for bands, dominate the large field adjacent to Teretonga Park road course and Oreti Park Speedway. Brightly colored dome tents and 1,000 motorcycles huddle along the tree line to the west. A half mile away, on Oreti Beach, competitors sprint down the long, smooth sand on everything from vintage Rudges to modern Yamahas to Harley-Davidson Sportsters. Sand and salt spray blast into the dunes, scouring spectators’ eyes. You’ve got to really love motorcycles to be here.
