Please remember you are on, what will be, the vacation of a lifetime and we want to make sure you have a great time riding one of our bikes here in New Zealand.

Ideal daily distance – Not every day should be the same, we suggest you vary your distances from 300-400 km, some slightly less and some slightly more. You will most likely want a half day here and there to do laundry etc. and just enjoy the local area. We also suggest you allow 2 nights in Queenstown, one being a day off from riding on the longer tours.

First and Last Day – After you pick up your motorcycle, we suggest you only ride up to 300 km on the first day of hire, get used to the bike and how you have distributed the luggage weight. We find this does take a couple of days to settle down, together with you as the rider getting used to the motorcycle, local roads, and weight differences, if the motorcycle you have chosen is different from the one you have at home. On the last day keep the distance relatively low around 250 km allowing plenty of time to drop off the motorcycle and transfer to your hotel and / or airport.
