I had thoughts of should we go north to rides starting with the magic motorcycle road in the Oxley Hwy, then on further north onto roads I've not been like water fall way, Gwyder Hwy, summerland way and all the great biking roads in northern NSW and Southern Queensland OR we could go south to great roads in the NSW Snowy mountain and Victorian Highlands like Clyde Mountain, Brown Mountain, Bonang Hwy, the great Alpine way, Elliot's way, Towonga Gap & Falls creek rd and snowy mountains Hwy. Some of this country's greatest motorcycle roads thrown in there.
There were many thoughts crossing back and forth on my mind about a week long trip and the endless possibility's that we could do some serious touring. Then my brother suggested that the tour does not necessarily need to be in this country.
I have always wanted to do a trip around New Zealand and now my brother has put it on the table. This is one place that as soon as I saw it the first time I said to my wife I have to come back here and ride it on a bike. It's one of those bucket list things, like a once in a life time opportunity. I wonder if there are 3 or 4 intelligent kiwi bloggers that have ridden the South Island that may have some great route suggestions?
