    Wow... what a trip :)

    Went on the most amazing "Addicted to Track" trip to New Zealand last month. We had a road bike and a track bike each and Marks truck got them shipped there far cheaper than it would taking them individually. When we weren't touring, we joined the NZ south island tour riding 4 great tracks.

    The Diavel managed it well even though he is now over 103,000km.
    Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: "Wahoo!! What a ride!"

    WOW. Someone has actually posted a GOOD video on Perth Street Bikes. Worth a watch guys.

    Looks like an awesome trip mate. Whereabouts is the waterfall? That's pretty hectic.

    Ha ha... I thought I might shock everyone with a fun post That is Milford Sound, an unbelievable spot and well worth getting up really early and riding there in the dark and the rain as the waterfalls were in full swing. So hard to try to explain such an awesome trip as it was just unbelievably good

    Good point, sometimes the waterfalls only appear when it rains then disappear after the rain.
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

    Looks like a fantastic trip! I recognise some places I think from my NZ visit last year unfortunately not with the bikes. How much does it cost to ship bikes to NZ and back to Perth?

    Great video.

    How deep do your pockets need to be for this? I suspect its not cheap.

    Great if you can do it, I'm sure.

    We were really lucky as we were the first mates tour that Mark did and I doubt very much if he made anything out of it yet he and Michelle put in an unbelievable amount of time and effort. Trip of a lifetime but will not let you know how much we paid as I would have been happy paying twice that considering what we got in return

    My comments were obviously made fully aware that people from other countries where they drive on the "other side of the road" is endemic and has fatal consequences in NZ......

    It also happens here to a lesser degree..we still have the odd head on in Karratha and surrounds depending on ship/shift change........

    I trust you aren't personally touched by trauma and death in this ...or one of these instances. regards.

    EDIT Derailed in the most usual of PSB ways.. well done GT...

    On a lighter note, Mandy was riding with us and just after our trip she competed in a road race, LSNZ Goudies Rd trials - 8th April Reporoa. Managed 274.74km/hr on her GXR750cc. Unbelievable!! Oh, and nobody was hurt Oh, and everybody had lots of fun

    Wahoo, apologies for my part in the thread hijack, it wasn't intentional.
    As an ex-patriate Kiwi I'm all to well aware of this problem, anyway enough said here about that.
    I have addressed GSX's whinge elsewhere...
