Touring New Zealand on a bike is spectacular. Imagine riding through all of Canada – rolling hills, ocean views, winding mountain switchbacks, and even prairies – but without having to travel almost 4000 miles.

I had the great fortune of spending a couple days on two wheels on the North Island. I hooked up with an Auckland H.O.G. member who gave us a tour around the Coremandel Peninsula and greater Auckland. Fantastic roads! No Potholes, frost heaves or cracks in the pavement.
He obviously knew the roads and I was either WFO or full brakes.
If anyone is thinking of going there, mortgage your house if you need to. It is a land of unbelievable beauty, the people are the most easy going, friendly folks you’ll ever come across.
