I really do need to get down to your island next summer holidays. Is that the Homer Tunnel?

Looks fantastic, I did a 3 week tour of the south island in 2000 on my ZX9. wasn't enough time, so much more to see on increadible silver roads.

Absabloodylootly fantastic roads/scenery you Kiwis have over there

NZ would probably be more 'do-able' for me than a DG rally (although that would be a lifetime highlight).

Just purely out of interest (at this stage anyway) anyone know how much it would cost to have a bike and rider shipped over to NZ, or how easy it is to hire a 12 (or even 14!) over there??. There is a mob called 'Get Routed' in OZ that deals with o/seas trips to IOM etc, I think they may also do NZ.

Cheers, you lucky buggers,

Don.

Oh, and Kiwi (Paul) if you're reading this, must make you homesick looking at those roads, especially being in Perth!!!

You'd have to have the bike certified & registered before you could ride it on the roads here, which on top of freight costs the $$$ would mount up considerably.

There are a few businesses that hire bikes but you'd be extremely lucky to find a 14 for hire, a 12 for hire would be like rocking horse shit.

There are a few 12's in dealerships that have been sitting for a looong time and they could be worth approaching to strike a deal. For example New Plymouth Motorcycle Centre has had a 2000 model in black on it's floor for about 3 years now. It has around NZD$10,000 sticker price on it.

I would crash....

That is some GORGEOUS scenery to be riding through.

You guys have some great "countryside" down there.
