Recent Testimonial - Geoff, Caloundra, Australia
"This is the second time we have hired bikes from the crew at South Pacific. Both times the bikes have been prsented in an 'as new' condition, fully serviced and ready to go. Last trip we covered 2400kms in 6 days without a problem and this time swe did a massive 3600kms in 8 days, again with not one hiccup.

Yes, you can get cheaper rates, however you need to ask yourself what happens to the rest of your trip when the bike breaks down in one of the many remote areas of this beautiful country? Do yourself a favour and hire one of their bikes and have a great time on some of the most spectacular riding roads in the world. Remember the old saying "You get what you pay for" and "the quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten"
