Hi, just introducing myself to the Bike Forums community. I'm more of a recreational rider and tourer than anyting else. In the past three years I've toured Holland, the Icefields Pkway in Canada, the Big Island of Hawaii, and just wraped up a ten day tour in Idaho. My next trip is to New Zealand in November. I'll be there for about 2 1/2 months. Would appreciate any info from others who have toured in New Zealand. Also looking for partners to tour with while I'm there. I think cyber communities like this are wonderful things. Live and let live. Steve L.
