Bike Hire - North Island New Zealand

Hi All
I have a good mate heading off for a trip to New Zealand arriving end of Jan to end of March (lucky sod) he will be based in the North island in the Hamilton area. He is looking to hire a bike and would particularly like to use an Enfield Bullit, if not then a largish capacity single something like a Beemer F650 or similar. Anyone know of a place to hire or general info on motorcycling in N/Z ??

Cheers
Potski

Not sure of any companies that hire bikes in Hamilton. I do know that Colemans Suzuki in Auckland hire bikes. I met a couple of guys from Canada on the South Island and they had hired their bikes from Colemans. Don't have their number but you could google them and get their details.

Thumbs up Waikato Car Rentals

There is a place in Hamilton that does hire bikes, and the owner is a life-long friend of mine!

If you go there, ask for Murray, the owner, and say Nigel Marx sent you.

Here's the linky thingy:

Kind regards

Hi Hornet & Nigel
Thanks to both of you for chipping in with info; Nigel, I will remind him to mention your name as I think he may well be in touch with your mate at Waikato. You live in a beautiful part of the world that's for sure...!
