We are 4 adults and are looking for lodging that is nice and clean, fairly economical ($100 - $150 NZ a couple/night) but all suggestions are welcome. Also, any reccomendations on day rides from these areas would also be greatly appreciated. We will be on GS1200's. This is a once in a lifetime trip for us and any help with planning is so greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
Routes - You are probably fairly far along, definitely check out They have lots of routes with different gradings. You can get a used copy of the New Zealand Motorcycle Atlas on Amazon.

Accomodation - I can't give specific recommendations (just started my trip) but I bounced between, and to find motels. I am also packing camping equipment, and the DOC Campsites are a good bet.

The KiwiBiker forum is also a good place to look - they have an Adventure Bike section in the forum.

Have a great ride!

Going way up
