Recently, I had the opportunity of touring the South Island in Autumn hiring a Suzuki Vstrom 650 from Wild Freedom Motorcycle Rentals. The tour and holiday was a highlight in my life. I saw some of the world's most amazing landscapes in those wonderful Autumn colours during my South Island journey.
I started in Auckland and raced south, over the ferry and onto the South Island. I road along the Molesworth Station road through the Aratere Valley first, then travelled most of the South Island alpine passes before any snow fell. The views are just stunning, and the Autumn colours are quite spectacular.
At Tekapo, I had a night-time tour on Mt John, where I caught a glimmer of the souther lights- Borealus Australis, or something like that. Absolutely awesome.
The tour and experience were unbelievable, and all thanks to the service from Wild Freedom Motorcycle Rentals in Auckland. I even wore out a tyre which they replaced in Invercargil! They're a great team to work with. Thanks.
