Day 1: Arrival and Welcomebriefing

Warm-up phase


Today is the first day of our tour, but we're not riding yet. But we all get to know each other and get the keys to our "toys".

Michaela, Axel and Thomas whet our appetites for the tour at our welcome briefing.
Afterwards we have enough time to prepare our bikes. Before we head off to dinner.

It's going to be a brilliant trip.

Day 2: Christchurch to Twizel


From the cold start in the morning

to an breathtaking finish


Let´s do it – It is day 2 and we will start our journey through New Zealand. I got to say in the morning it was more a feeling of staying in bed because it was raining and only around 8 C – But we are not out of sugar and that why we did what we love: riding a motorcycle and that on an Island what you have to visit once in your life!!!  As I said it was cold but somehow Petrus decided to give us a chance. So we went out of Christchurch up on the famous Summit Road and on the other side down. As you can See the mood was good and we had already a nice ride. To top the hall thing we went on down south through the flat lands and farming arear. Where we had lunch at the Farm shop & where you also got the opportunity to get some Manuka Honey – by the way: If you never had on? You should take one with you. From there on we moved on towards the Burkes Pass which was leading us to our highlight of the day: Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki. Just look at the colors of the Water – for me the best way to kick off this Tour – simply breathtaking and as you can see at our rider’s face, we had an sunny afternoon.
All in one this day has been a good start into the tour and on top nobody had any problems to ride on the left side.

Well that has been day 2 and many more are in front of us!!!
Say tuned for more Kiwi Moments

Day 3: Twizel to Te Anau

up side down


Our 2nd real riding day begins. We set off for one of the biggest sights on the South Island, but more on that tomorrow. Our destination today is Te Anau, which is Maori and means "water rushing in the cave". But first we head up the Lindis Pass, which is not particularly high, but is winding and scenic. After a first coffee, we enter the Karawau Gorge. Not only is the road along the river a lot of fun, there is also a very special place here. Commercial bungie jumping was practically invented here. Tom and Gerhard don't miss this opportunity for an adrenaline kick. While we're on the subject of adrenaline, the road along Lake Wakatipu, known as the "Devils stairway", provides us with plenty of driving fun in the afternoon. The scenery along the lake is fantastic. After a last coffee, we roll into our destination, admired by the people at the side of the road.

Day 4: Te Anau to Queenstown

The sound of Milford

What a Day!!!!!


It's alarmingly early when we bring our luggage to the van today. All this for an unforgettable experience, that's the promise. Spoiler alert, we weren't promised too much. After all, one of New Zealand's most famous sights awaits us today, Milford Sound. A beautiful fjord with a connection to the Tasman Sea. The ride there alone is worth the early start. We ride on winding roads through majestic gorges, with snow-capped mountain peaks, into a fascinating rainforest. At the end of the road lies Milford Sound. On a 2-hour boat trip we have enough time to marvel at the beauty of this unique landscape. Truly unique. Filled with these impressions, we make our way back to our starting point in Te Anau. There we have lunch. In the afternoon we have another opportunity to drive the winding road along Lake Wakatipu. Our destination today is Queenstown. It was a long day but well worth it. And tomorrow is a rest day.

We started with clouds towards Milford Sound and as a reward of the early start we had a sunny boat ride as you can see at the pictures

The history of Milford Sound 

Milford Sound is believed to have been discovered by Māori over 1,000 years ago, although few lived here permanently instead visiting for hunting, fishing and gathering pounamu. The Māori name for Milford Sound is Piopiotahi, meaning single native thrush. The South Island piopio is a native bird which is now extinct.

By the late 19th century, intrepid explorers in Fiordland were eager to share the grandeur of Milford Sound with the rest of the world. Pioneering guides like Quintin McKinnon began to establish tracks into the stunning, yet difficult to access, depths of Fiordland. In 1935, another ambitious pioneer, Henry Homer took on the challenge of drilling a tunnel through the sheer granite rock of the Darran Mountain Range to build a road to Milford Sound.

Day 5: Restday Queenstown

take it easy


Today is our first rest day, certainly not a bad idea after yesterday's long day. And Queenstown is the perfect place for it. The town has a lot to offer. Of course, there's also the opportunity to ride a motorcycle. The route leads along Lake Wakatipu to Glenorch, where scenes for Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia were filmed. Then it's up to the Coronet peak. The road is, after all, the highest tarmac road in the South Island. In the afternoon, we have all the time in the world to go shopping. If you want, you can top up your adrenaline levels with a jet boat ride.

Cheers to a good day

Day 6: Queenstown to Fox Clacier



After yesterday's relaxed exploration of Queenstown and the surrounding area, today we head back into the wilderness. Variety is the theme of the day. After leaving Queenstown, we head up the first pass. The wonderfully winding road leads us through a barren mountain landscape and offers spectacular views. After enjoying the views to the full, we head back down into the valley. A small village called Wanaka welcomes us with a beautiful panorama of lake and mountain landscape. The following kilometers are characterized by magnificent views of lakes, mountains and lots of green. The road winds along the rocks and offers plenty of riding fun. What a mix.

After lunch, we head over the Haas Pass, through seemingly endless forests down to the west coast. Welcome to the rainforest. We ride along the coast, a stop at the beach is of course a must. One coffee later we reach Fox Clacier, our destination for today, where Michaela is already waiting for us with a cool Bootbeer. What a day.

Day 7: Fox Glacier to Greymounth

Snow landing at Fox Glacier

Up in the air 

 what a start to the day!!


Check in, weigh, and then we go to Fox Glacier in two helicopters.

Perfect weather gives us unforgettable moments.

With this unique experience, we get on our motorbikes and set off through the rainforests on the west coast.

Curves Curves and more curves.

Thomas has a nice surprise in store, a beautiful place and a picnic.

We continue on to Arthur's Pass.

We almost feel like we are in the European Alps, but only almost.

Because there is a species of parrots here - the Keas - that you have to be careful of - and their beak, nothing is safe.

Our destination today is Graymount but we're not out of the west coast yet, stay tuned and we'll continue tomorrow

Day 8: Greymouth to Nelson

The Playgroup

along the west coast


The New Zealand adventure continues. Today we head north along the west coast. A day full of contrasts and an important discovery awaits us. Our first stop is the "pancake rocks". One of the country's top sights. And on top of that, something you don't get to see every day. The coastal road is also very special, entertaining us with countless curves in the best weather. As the icing on the cake, Cape Foulwind awaits us at the end. The cape is home to a seal colony and is definitely worth a visit.

We turn our backs on the coast and drive on to the Buller Gorge, which is certainly not the longest or most impressive river on the island. But a very entertaining road has been built here to follow its course. Of course, there is plenty to discover to the left and right. We probably don't need to emphasize the magnificent landscape any more.

Back in the lowlands and along the coast, we finally reach our destination. Nelson.

Day 9: Nelson to Wellington

bye, bye south island


Today we leave the South Island of New Zealand and continue our journey on the North Island. The port is just over a hundred kilometers from the hotel in Nelson. But it's a tough one. The sign at the side of the road says "Picton over scenic road". And the road not only offers great views but also countless bends. That's a great way to start the day. Once we arrive at the harbor, we have enough time to eat an ice cream and enjoy the palm-lined view of Queen Charlote Sound.

Then we board the ferry. The three and a half hour crossing is a welcome opportunity to review the experiences of the last few days.

Wellington welcomes us with typical capital city traffic. Now that we have sufficiently exercised our clutch hand, we reach our hotel. Tomorrow is a rest day. The 2nd part of our journey begins.


The Kiwi Team of 2023



Day 10: Restday Wellington

the restless gona rest


Today is our second rest day of the tour. Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, is the perfect place for this. The city isn't as fancy as Queenstown, but it's great for exploring. Of course, a rest day ride is also on the menu. The tour takes us along winding, narrow roads with hardly any traffic to Southward. The local car museum is not only home to cars but also airplanes, boats and of course motorbikes from over 100 years of technical history. Some of the exhibits certainly bring back memories. But we won't be able to reminisce for too long, because the Akatarawa road is narrow - I mean narrow - yes, just as narrow, oh yes, and it's also winding. At the end of this rollercoaster, an idyllic wildlife park awaits us, whose inhabitants seem to have no fear of humans. There we fortify ourselves with a small snack before plunging back into the traffic of the capital.

Day 11: Wellington to Napier

Namaste Chrystal

East West 

We leave Wellington rested after our day of rest via the expressway. To take the spectacular route over the Rimuaka Pass. Dark clouds to the right and left but we find the path of light.

We stop for a coffee in the Wellingtonians' weekend paradise.


Lush green fields and lots of sheep everywhere.

And don't forget all the great curves with zero traffic.

Our lunch was prepared by Axel today, thank you for that.

We continue to the longest place name in the world.

I take it all

Day 12: Napier to Rotorua

Volcanoes, deserts and forests


It's good morning world this morning, because in Napier we can experience the sunrise of a new day before anyone else in the world. Somehow a cool thought.

After breakfast, we head out into the wilderness. We are almost alone out here, apart from the sheep.
We drive through idyllic forests and landscapes characterized by these typical rolling hills.

Unfortunately, we have to do without our morning coffee, because where there's nothing going on....

Around midday, the landscape opens up again and we can marvel at the three majestic volcanoes, Ruepehu, Ngaurahoe and Tongariro. The national army museum is also located at their feet.
Not only does a very interesting exhibition await us here, but also lunch. Time to relax.

We continue along the volcanoes through a steppe landscape up to Lake Taupo. A huge volcanic crater. We enjoy the beauty of the landscape once again over a last coffee. The closer we get to our destination of Rotoura, the more often we notice the smell of sulphur.

The last ride of part 1


Today we started our motorcycles the last time together because a part of the group will leave us tomorrow. But before start with the goodbye and the flashbacks what we have seen in the past 14 days!!!

There is a riding day in front of us. We started with mixred feeelings, because Petrus was not sure if we should have another sunny riding day or not. On the and we could say: there have been some moments where we got a little wet - but all in one we we had a blessed ride. The ride himself went up on the eastcoast through the farming land of Kiwi Avocado and co untill our coffeee stop at the Waihi Beach. From there on we went towards the Firth of Thames where we had lunch. The road from the lunch towards Auckland went once more along the coastline - but this time with some windy moments until we enjoyed a nice winding road to the highway which brought us to Auckland.

Well and tonight it is time to say goodby to a part of the group and the rest will continue the ride to the northes point of New Zealand. What means tonight we will have a fair well dinner.

And now it is time to get britty for the dinner

Die letzte Fahrt von Teil 1


Heute sind wir das letzte Mal gemeinsam mit unseren Motorrädern losgefahren, denn ein Teil der Gruppe wird uns morgen verlassen. Aber bevor wir mit der Verabschiedung und den Rückblicken beginnen, was wir in den letzten 14 Tagen erlebt haben!!!

Gibt es unseren Fahrtag von heute. Wir starteten mit gemischten Gefühlen, denn Petrus war sich nicht sicher, ob wir einen weiteren sonnigen Fahrtag haben sollten oder nicht. Im Nachhinein können wir sagen: es gab einige Momente, in denen wir ein wenig nass wurden - aber alles in allem hatten wir einen windigen aber angenehmen Tag. Die Fahrt selbst führte uns entlang der Ostküste hinauf durch das Farmland von Kiwi Avocado und Co bis zu unserem Kaffeestopp am Waihi Beach. Von dort aus ging es weiter in Richtung Firth of Thames, wo wir zu Mittag aßen. Der Weg vom Mittagessen nach Auckland führte uns wieder an der Küste entlang - diesmal aber mit einigen sehr windigen Momenten, bis wir eine schöne kurvenreiche Straße zum Highway genossen, der uns nach Auckland brachte. 

Tja und heute Abend heißt es dann Abschied nehmen von einem Teil der Gruppe und der Rest wird die Fahrt zum nördlichsten Punkt Neuseelands fortsetzen. Was bedeutet, dass wir heute Abend ein Abschiedsabend haben werden.


Und jetzt ist es Zeit, sich für das Abendessen zu stärken

Welcome to the extention of the New Zealand Tour.

In the next 7 days we will move on to see the rest - what means that we will ride first to the half island of Coromandel befor we take of towards Karikari. But for now that will be all what we spoil and if you like to know more just come back to the Blog.


Thomas and Axel

Day 1: Rest Day Auckland

Hallo Again from Auckland


Today it is a real rest, because it is raining and in this case there is no need to ride. On the other hand, Auckland is a town where you find always somthing to do and to discover. Places like the Sky Tower with a stunnig view, Auckland War Memorial, Auckland Zoo and much more will cover our time of.

And tomorrow we will hop on our bikes and we wil be on the road again to Tairua.

Thomas and Axel

Day 2: Auckland to Tairua

The Day full of Rain

Today we left Auckland and we went out towards Coromandel wich is a really nice riding day but in our case it was the day where we washed the bikes completely, because it was raining almost the whole day. But anyway, the start out of Auckland on a Sunday is way easier, because there is almost no traffic. And soon we got to the curvy road along the coastline towards Coromandel. After several kilometres and a coffee to warm up we drove up on the west coast and down on the east coast of the half island. The nice part of this route is for sure the stunning curvy road along the island but the downside has been for sur the bad weather so that we could not enjoyed it as we would like to. So we fight our way through some heavy rain and got an impression how nice it could be. Some stops along the way for pictures brought us finally to Tairua where we will stay for tonight. All in one this days headline says bratty much everything but if the weather is on this day on your side!!! I promise you you will love it


Well that was our day and we will cross the fingers that tomorrow will be better


See you 

Thomas and Axel

Day 3: Tairua to Whangarei

Our Hundertwasser moment in Whangarei

east to west


After one night in the "Jungle", we unfortunately have to leave again. We could have stayed here for a while longer, what a great place. We have a long day of driving ahead of us, once from the east to the west coast. Due to closed roads, we have to improvise a little. But the weather seems to mean well with us today. We head back towards Auckland through dense forests and beautiful gorges on roads that are still damp with rain. We leave the city and its traffic behind us as quickly as possible and head back into the hinterland. Unfortunately, the rain of the last few days has caused a landslide here which blocks our way to Piha beach. Too bad no lunch on the beach. Instead, we find a nice spot on the side of the road in the middle of the countryside. It's nice to stay here. After a short detour, we are already back on our route. The roads and landscapes are varied and we pass through villages whose streets are lined with beautifully restored old wooden houses.

Speaking of wood, we reach the Kauri Museum in the afternoon. The interesting and lovingly designed exhibition gives us a deeper insight into the history of the country. We then continue to Wangarei, our destination for today. In addition to a really good dinner, a small highlight awaits us here.

Day 4: Whangarei to Karikari

From the east coast to the west coast


the rainforest to the north


That would be the shortest way to describe this day! But it was way more. We startet in Whangarei and we went straight to to the west coast where we stopped at The Woodturner's Gallery and we met the artist himself. On top - his wife stepped with us back in time and explained why the Kauri wood is so special. And meanwhile the husband brought some Kauri wood to the table, which has been over 4000 years old - it was just impressive. After that it was time to move on - and the coffee stop was the place to be. After the recharging the batteries we went to the Waipu forest which is famous for the big Kauri trees. Well and than it was time to get some lunch before we cached the ferry and moved on towards Karikari where we will stay for the next two days. And road wise it was such a great day - it was like a dance - from one turn into the next in Waipu forest and after the ferry it went on and on like this, almost to the end of the day.

It was such a pleasure to ride today!!! If i could i would do it tomorrow again !!!!

Well, and now we are up here and it is halftime what means we got a restday tomorrow what means actually nothing if you ask Charly because we will ride for sure.


So see you tomorrow

Day 5: Restday Karikari

all the way north


It is beautiful, the place where we are. Almost too beautiful to leave. But hey, if we're already this far north then we have to top it all off. Otherwise it would be like turning around just before the North Cape in Norway. So we get on our bikes, later than usual of course, and set off for Cape Reigna, which is officially the northernmost point in the country. The ride there is relaxed without being boring, which is good because we take the same route back. At the cape itself, we are almost overwhelmed. The weather is perfect and the view is breathtaking.

As a contrast to the calm blue of the sea and the lush green of the landscape, we pay a short visit to the shifting sand dunes on the famous "90milles beach".

Just in time for the rain to start, we stop for a quick bite to eat. Then we head back down to the aforementioned "90milles beach". In reality, it is actually much shorter but no less impressive.  Due to the weather, we return dry to our villas on the golf course.

We round off this last rest day of the tour with a leisurely dinner.

Day 6: Karikari Peninsula to Waitangi

On The Way back towards Auckland

Welcome on day 6, where went down south along the coastline. We started today at 9 and the weather clears up so that we had a really blessed ride to Waitangi. Along the way there have been some sections which has been like a rollercoaster up and down and very twisty. I put it this way - It was fun with a view!!! First coffee stop has been on the oldest store from New Zealand (from 1832) and afterwards we went to the highlight of the day historical wise - The Waitangi Museum - Where in 1840 the contract has been signet between England and the Maori. After stepping back in time, we needed some more curves and so we did. Down south and the old Russell Road back up was the second part of the rollercoaster of these day. Almost no traffic and good grip made this road to 60% to a fun run. And than, well then we hit the rain on the last 40 km of the day. But all in one it was a great riding day with a stunning view along the coastline and on top the museum.

Well and now we got to go for dinner!!!!

So See you tomorrow on our last riding day

Day 7: Waitangi to Auckland

sea to the city


Here it is, our last day of touring. After 21 days, it's time to say goodbye. But that's no reason not to celebrate the day with a firework display of riding pleasure.

We start in Waitangi and take the same ferry as the day before. We give the "old Russel road" another chance. Unfortunately, the rain had thwarted our plans yesterday. And lo and behold, today it's just as we ordered, the weather is perfect, the panoramas are beautiful and there are plenty of bends.... That's how it should be.

After a quick coffee stop, we join the highway, which we leave a little later. To take a few more bends along the coast. We have lunch in Waipu, a place popular with surfers.

Full and satisfied, we tackle the last bend of the tour, the road through the Matakana Valley. Here it's time to open our eyes again and enjoy.

Then it's back onto the highway, where we roll along with the city traffic towards the hotel.

A worthy end to a great adventure.

Michael, Scott and Charles, enjoy the view
