"Our trip went well"

- James E Bixby - USA

Hi Ian,

I meant to email you sooner after our bike rental a few weeks ago. I just wanted to let you know that our trip went well, and the staff in Takapuna were really nice and helpful in getting us on the road after getting briefed on the bike, ferry tie-downs, riding on the left, etc.

Although I had hoped to rent the FJR, the V-Strom 1000 was a lot of fun. As you would expect of a new bike, it performed flawlessly. I lubed the chain every other day, and all was well.

I was initially disappointed in the need for a one-way rental, but in retrospect I'm very glad that it worked out that way. We rode 3 days on the North Island, and then 4 days on the South Island. The ferry trip to Picton was fun, and the scenery and roads down south are FANTASTIC. We stayed in Westport, Wanaka, and Akaroa. Neat places to visit. We hope to come back to NZ in a few years, and we'll ride only the South Island and see the sights that we missed this time.

Thanks for your help in getting everything set up.

Jim Bixby
