Cry Visiting NZ in Early January-Beg or Buy a Ride???

Hey NZ Adventure Riders! I'm visiting Auckland, Wellington, and Christshurch in early January and apparently every rental place is booked up.

So I'm trying to rent or beg a ride somewhere along the way! I could even escrow the purchase price of a bike and release when it comes back in one piece

Just desperately want to ride while I'm there.

My bonafides: I'm a road marshall for one of the biggest riders groups in the Bay Area, am adventurous but responsible, have put 12k miles on my little GS in the past 11 months. I am generous and fun, enjoy just about any kind of riding, from fire roads to twisties in the mountains. I even manage to have fun commuting on the bike.

In a perfect world, I'd love access to one of the BMW GS models, but I will have fun with anything with enough oomph to get up the hills.

Would love any leads or helpful info or even just an invitation to have a beer while I'm there.

Respond here or email alalbaugh@gmail.com and I'll hook you up if you're ever in Northern California!

Have a look at www.trademe.co.nz for bikes - if you see something you like the look of, ask on here or Kiwibiker if there is anyone close that can check it out.

There is a lot of NZ to see so stretch your trip out as long as possible. If you make it to Rotorua get in touch. We may be away a bit in Jan but if we are home we always enjoy hosting motorcycle travellers.

Cheers
Clint

Hi, if you find a bike in Auckland, I can pick it up or drop you to it as I'm only 20mins from the Airport. If you don't mind the couch you can crash at my place.
cheers John
