Join the next Trip of a Lifetime with MOTORCYCLIST and Paradise Motorcycle Tours NZ. Our 2016 Hiamo South Island tour will run from 26 Jan to 6 Feb 2016 – 11 days of glorious roads and scenery that will knock your socks off. Everyone who came on the 2015 Hiamo Tour was stunned at the amazing sights and even more amazing roads.

For 2016 we have more riding – we’ve expanded the tour from 9 days to 11.

More scenery – we’ve added Kaikoura, Hanmer Springs Thermal Resort, Lewis Pass and Buller Gorge Road – more of the wild West Coast and a free day to explore the Otago Peninsula.

So from the front or back of your near new rental bike you’ll experience even more of the South Island, and this time we go anti-clockwise!

Another guide has been added, too.

With the high demand for this tour,Paradise Motorcycle Tours is adding a second motorcycle guide, which means there can be two groups, each with a guide,to maximize your safety and enjoyment.

More options are another benefit of having two guides. You can take a shorter route on some days to relax and explore the final day’s destination, or enjoy a longer route for maximum riding time and sights from the saddle.

More bikes will be available. Paradise Motorcycle Tours has the most modern and one of the largest fleets in NZ. Being an official partner of BMW Motorrad, they offer a choice of the usual popular BMW models, or you can book one of the just released ones like the R 1200 RS, F 800 R or S 1000 XR.

I really look forward to seeing you there, but remember to book as early as possible, because this will be a very popular tour. SW
