Question Riding in uNZud...

The pictures look really nice , so...
Has anyone done an Adventure/Off Road Tour in New Zealand?


I'm looking for recommendations for an NZ Company to do a tour with - similar to what Stay Upright were doing to the Cape (now that was a bloody good trip ).

I've had a quick looky on the interweb, a few mobs show up and seem legit but I'm hoping for some feedback from anyone who's been over on who they went with, and their general impression of the whole shebang.


Thanks
Paul

Maybe get in touch with Dave Cohen, known here as danger_dave. He's a journo in NZ so he may be able to point you in the right direction. Heres a shot of him hard at work...

Check Road Rider magazine or Cycle Torque (the free one from the bike shops). Heaps of NZ bike rental companies advertise in both and I'm sure they would be able to refer you on.

G/day Paul

Check out my report on the South Isle over christmas, new year 07/08

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=303243

I flew in and out of Christchurch, and hired a F650GS from Motorcycles New Zealand.

Was back last year to do the North Isle until I had my big getoff 6 days into a 6 week holiday

You won't be disappointed with Adventure riding in NZ
