Saspotato and I recently completed an 11 day road trip (car) of New Zealand's south island. For anyone who hasn't been, it's motorcycle heaven. Even the windiest road where you struggle to get the car up to 60 is all 100kmh speed limit and most of the roads (except around Christchurch) were pretty good. We spent much of our trip wishing we had our bikes there which got me thinking about how this could be possible. Hiring bikes is expensive (we tried this just for a day trip while in Queenstown but it ended up just being too hard) I have done some basic searching online and it seems it would cost around $1500 per bike one way which for two bikes (and bringing them home again) is a lot of money. The only other option is to buy a couple of bikes over there and flog them when we leave but it's not quite the same as doing the trip on your own bike. Even if we find a way, a trip like this would prob'ly be several years off but I am curious if anyone has managed to take their bike overseas at a reasonable cost.
