Editor’s note: From time to time, The Classic Life will feature blogs from guest writers. Margie Siegal, contributor and friend of Motorcycle Classics, had the chance to visit New Zealand earlier this spring and came back with a few photos and the following great story. Enjoy! 

My favorite vacation is to pick a spot with nice roads and good scenery, fly there, rent a motorcycle and explore.  Top on my list for some time has been New Zealand, and this year I found myself with ticket in hand, waiting to board Air New Zealand for the flight to Bike Nirvana. 



 English settlers who reached New Zealand in the 1800's must have found themselves reminded of home. NZ, located south of Australia, is two large green and mountainous islands, totaling the equivalent square mileage of California. The climate is moderate, and it rains almost as much as it does in London. I was there for two weeks and it rained two and a half days during that time.
