    I just got to the NZ! Tired but happy because one of my the biggest motorcycle dreams comes true! New Zealand greeted my with heartiness of local people. P.S. Such a beautiful Maori's gate welcomes all travellers on Auckland airport!

    I just finished first day Kiwiland. When I landed the heavy rain welcomed me with temperature barely crossing 10C. But after meeting New Zealand Triumph dealers the atmosphere become warm and the sun came out from the clouds! Thank you Guys for fabulous ride!
    P.S. It was tempting to ride on the right side [​IMG] I was repeating to myself... ride upstream... ride upstream [​IMG]

    I'm fighting with the jet lag and also with nature! Today famous winds in Tongariro National Park tried to throw me off the bike. I hugged the Speedmaster and didn't let him go. We reached happily Wellington. [​IMG]

    Great start to this report! Looking forward to the next chapter. Did you rent the Triumph in N. Zealand? If yes, what was that process like?
