    Rode what is known locally as the "Twin Passes"run the other week.
    Through Arthurs Pass to the West Coast of New Zealand and back via Lewis Pass.
    Around 8 hours of riding - the Trophy ran perfect and was nice and comfy.
    A great way to take in the scenery.
    Enjoy the view  :001:

     My good wife and I have had the pleasure of enjoying the North island of your "long white cloud" but as yet haven't touched the fantastic roads of the South island. As your photos show, w'ere in for a treat when we do. Cheers.  :028: :028:

    Hi jimxlrh8,

    My wife and I hosted 17 of our overseas riding buddies through all 5 passes back in Feb 2020. We sure are blessed down under with fabulous roads and scenery. Great pics  :152:

    Wow that would have been awesome - I took in all 5 passes with my wife a few years back on my T3 Trophy

    Yes love the North Island roads for the variety of country routes available but the South Island is a prefect place to tour around if you like empty amazing roads with scenery to die for  :008: :046:
