Getting to NZ in February

Finishing riding through South America and will be shipping my bike to Auckland.

Would love to meet up with some ADV riders along the way.


Still working out logistics for getting me and the bike there. Will plan to ride NZ for 2-3 months


Just wanted to say Hello. And have a place to ask some questions over the next month before arriving!

I am sure you'll like it here. I live just north of Auckland, so might be able to meet up, depending on timing.

Hello!
February/March is a great time of year for touring around. Let us know if you find yourself in the Rotorua area, Clintnz and I like meeting up with other ADVers. And we will possibly want to interrogate you about riding in South America

I'm in Auckland, and I have a van if you need bike collected or a place to stay. Last time I brought a vehicle in it went to a Customs depot near the airport.....I'm about 20 minutes from Airport/Port.

I know. Looking forward to it. Being on a RTW ride does not give a whole lot of time to get routes all figured out for the next country.

Meeting with Shipper in Buenos Aires this afternoon and then will be working out timing, logistics on NZ end, Carnet etc.... Lots to get done but should arrive NZ within the next 3 weeks!
