My son and I are coming over to NZ in February. We have hired two DR650s and are planning a trip around the lower half of the South Island. We would like to stay on dirt tracks as much as possible. We’ll have a small tent and minimal camping gear. We’ve only got 7 days. Has anyone got any advice for us re what route to take, where to stay etc.
I would love to hear from anyone who has experience in this region.

Here’s a ride-report from a South Island ride last year.
Guess you’ll pick up/ return the bikes in Christchurch…
start at page 7 then.
You’ll be running out of time before you know it.

Did the whole south Island a few years back.
Try and get hold of a book written buy Mike Hyde “Twisting Trottle” the best guide for what you want to do.

I have ordered “Twisting Throttle” online. Thanks for this advice, I can’t wait to get it so I can start planning my trip.
I appreciate it, thanks.
