We're in NZ now - with good advice from Ralph - and really enjoying the visit. We're only doing the north island this time around and rented a car to get around. Next year, south island and for sure and hopefully a motorcyle tour. The roads are stunning everywhere we have been so far. I think riding in a group, following someone who knows where they are going, it would be ok. Wouldn't want to have tried it solo fresh off the plane. A couple of days into it, now comfortable in traffic, jonsing for a bike really bad. Haven't seen an LT anywhere, but lots of motorcycles around. Not many sport touring bikes of any sort, mostly sport bikes. At a gas station, an Aprilia RSV pulled up and a couple jumped off, both were in their 60s easy.
