Mike Lester is the MD and has been a motorcyclist since way back.
“I was born with a pair of handlebars in my hands and Castrol in my veins! I've been riding bikes since 1965 and over the years I've owned a multitude of bikes including Triumphs, Blackbirds, and Harleys. I have a passion for all things motorised and my prized possessions currently include a couple of Triumph TR classics, a TR4A and a TR8, and my gorgeous 1953 Matchless G9500 Twin.”
Mike is the CEO and owner of South Pacific. Be prepared for lots of bike talk if you're lucky enough to meet him when you pick up your Ride.
Previously an electrician in the UK, Mike moved to New Zealand in 2002. Trained to an advanced level by the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists, Mike is now a New Zealand Observer. Mike loves passing on his vast riding knowledge to our tour guests who may want to improve their ride.
