Any Kiwis interested in hooking up?

We've just had confirmation of our residency visas coming through, so are making preparations to come over to NZ in the next couple of months.

We dont have anywhere specific in mind to settle at the moment, and our main thoughts are to hire a 4x4 when we get there and go tour-camp-hostel our way around the islands.

Anyone interested in hooking up, and can make recommendations for places to visit?

Nomadic1,

Try this site, Kiwi Biker - New Zealand motorcycle community may be better for what you are looking for. There are a lot of guys on here that may be willing to give you a hand, Once you are settled there are heaps of local rides goin down.

Cheers...

South Island is amazing, as you will find out. I'm heading down there middle/end of April for a ride (one up so far...) but if you end up here, drop me a line. Always up for something new.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
