Coast to Coast Across New Zealand’s North Island

“Lord of the Rings really put a lot of pressure on New Zealand…”

“…And, it totally lived up to it.”

This past December, we were invited by KTM Australia to help support their Adventure Rally on the North Island of New Zealand. While we were technically there to help riders use the Rever app to navigate five days of riding across the country, we did manage to round up a few bikes to get a little dirty (and wet) ourselves.

We have a lot of incredible riding in the U.S. but shy of poaching the local golf course, there is nothing like ripping a motorcycle across the groomed farm lands of New Zealand. Toss in some twisting gravel roads and sloppy single-track through Jurassic Park like jungle and you have some of the best Adventure riding you can imagine. The KTM staff really know how to put on an event and we can’t wait to go back.
