Amazing Motorcycle Trips

Amazing Motorcycle Trips

The world is full of bike-friendly locations--spots with big curves, little to no traffic and boundless adventure. Motorcycle tourism can be a great way to indulge your riding habit and see some of the most beautiful places on the planet.

New Zealand
Forget bungee jumping and jet boat rides. The biggest thrill in the land of the long white cloud is taking to its lightly trafficked roads on a motorcycle tour or solo mission (top-notch bikes are available for rent in major cities on the north and south islands). Edelweiss Bike Travel offers 14-day jaunts of up to 2,430 miles, leaving from Christchurch on the South Island and circumnavigating the country's highlights before finishing in Auckland on the North Island. Roads are mostly of the tight-gripping-asphalt variety and suitable for beginner riders (although getting used to driving on the 'other side' is another animal entirely).
