Not a lot of American Iron in Kiwi-land, seems Suzuki is rather popular there.
Hi bro. I wasn't sure of the make but I think you are right. It is Indian. Checkout this pic.

The logo for Indian motorcycle on the internet (I believe this is the old one though) is quite similar to the one on the side of the tank.

And yeah that ride was organized by the Suzuki people, hence, more Suzukis. Quite a few Hondas on NZ roads too.

Hey guys, here are a few pics of my NZ rides. Beautiful place to visit if one gets the opportunity!

Wow. Forum rules require I post more that just that one word
I hope someday I'll have enough money to at least go out on vacation and ride beautiful bikes in beautiful places if not live/emigrate there , but what was joke about hell being English food, Greek economy, and Indian salary ? Going back to topic , looks like a great place to go if you have any of the common hobbies around motorcycling/automotive forums other than the bikes/cars , such as photography and watersport kind of things !
Back I go to count my meagre monies and save on !

Absolutely Gorgeous Pics - NZ is a stunner. I have friends there and although the population is sparse the roads are brilliant to drive and a car trip is a must when in NZ.

The bike looks great and the 250 I bet here is just a temp thing before you get yourself something more higher up the range.

Will keep an eye out for your posts. Your way of telling the story in pics is great. Cheers.

Just read your whole journey into big biking. Very interesting & inspirational.
My next roadtrip sure is New Zealand (south island).

The second last pic is not an Indian. Its definitely a Honda VTX 1300 or 1800

Just saw this thread and the title caught my attention. Great narration and captures fellow biker. Brilliantly written and sequenced to capture the various moments. Keep it flowing.

ba$h,

Just wonderful and perfect timming for inspiration if any were needed.

Haroon, our group in Dubai is planning NZ South Islands in Jan-Feb 2013. We need to speak on thi further

Why the cofusion about the bike - I think the engine cover clearly has HONDA on it. The Indian logo is the aspiration of the owner. May he acheive it soon

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

Nice set of pictures and as expected many setting their sights on a international riding holiday (I happen to be one of them). Good to know that you are from the same city and that you ride the same bike of the same colour is a great thing.

Join the gang.

Got that right bro. In small towns of NZ there is no one on the streets after 5pm. Very peaceful place! I have done christchurch-queenstown and from there all the way up to Auckland on 4wheels. Thats the best way to see NZ.

The N250 is great but a liter-bike wont hurt. So I've been helping my wallet to gain some weight.

NZ is very picturesque! You need around 10-14 days days for NZ trip & you could do both islands. Anything more than that would be a bonus!

Thanks for the appreciation bro. Will continue my story with the N250 as I build more miles on it.
