versys, awsome bike new zealand roads
with some of the tight and twisty roads around lakes and mountains my 08 versys will keep right up with some of my mates on very high powered sports bikes, espeically in the tight twisty's. my wife thinks bike is to boring as it just to easy to ride, she has a suzuki c50t but i get in trouble on that as i keep scraping the running boards on the road

where was that - South Island? as some of the best roads in the world! Sadly bike rental guy in nelson was an arsehole so had to do in a car, but great place. perfect V country.

We from Timaru, south island. just done a ride that went right around the island. Had a bmw 650 GS before the versys, thing i miss most of the bmw was its great suspension you know ya run over a log and not feel a thing. Off to Hokitika on the west coast this weekend (about 390km ride through middle of island)for what is called the wild food festival. great oppurtunity to eat weird and wonderful bugs etc
west side of homer tunnel on way to milford sound. last petrol station Te Anau 240km round trip. on bikes ya got to watch out for tourist vans as they stop anywhere and every where.
When we went through this tunnel, i had a o **** moment, was a bright sunny day and had the sun glasses on and rode into tunnel and you guessed it could not see a thing. The lights in the tunnel are very dull, water leaks from the ceiling, its adown hill gradiant heading into from the east side and to top it all off my versys light were shining far to high, trying to remove glove and glasses on the move due to the fact you could not stop and my wife told me after she could not see that well but just thought he knows what hes doing and followed close on my tail. But apart from that it would have to rank as the most awsome places to ride a bike.
