Recent Testimonial - John, Yellowknife, Canada:

"A friend and I had the pleasure of renting two bikes from South Pacific Motorcycle Tours earlier this month. I have rented motorcycles all over the world and have never experienced such exceptional service and quality machinery. The owners of this family run business— Mike & Carole—are as friendly and helpful as any on the planet.

The motorcycles were in superlative shape, and we had no difficulties in our nine days of riding the South Island of New Zealand. I can’t think of a better place to ride motorcycles anywhere on the planet! We were on an unguided tour with just the two of us, each on separate bikes. We had no knowledge of the South Island and greatly appreciated all the little details that were prearranged.

The bikes’ GPS were programmed including great places for fuel and lunch, as well as our destination hotel each night. All lodgings were arrange and all side trips and boat tours organized and prepaid - even our fly fishing. They took all the pain out of traveling in a new country.

I’ve never experienced this level service anywhere, my greatest thanks for a wonderful motorcycle vacation"
