Bike Hire New Zealand
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:45:44 am »
Hi Fellow Riders

I have a booked a short holiday over to NZ for March to go and visit some family and Friends. As my buddy is a biker we decided it would be a great idea to do a bike road trip there  :ricky:. Only problem is that he only has 1 bike.


Has anybody got any recommendations or suggestions for bike hire there for me? We will be starting out in Auckland, so near there would be best.

Cheers
Ray

I ended up hiring a VStrom from http://www.wildfreedommotorcyclerentals.co.nz/ 

Did a nice little loop from Auckland down to Wellington and back.

There are quite a few places that do this, my advice would be make sure you have a clear recovery plan in place if you hit worse case scenario and something goes wrong. :P
