Owen Kemp, Owner of MANZ Bikes

As owner and director of Motorcycle Adventures New Zealand I have the privilege of assisting other motorcycle enthusiasts to see our beautiful country by my favorite mode of transport… motorcycle.

I have been involved with motorcycles and with motorcycling in New Zealand since I was a young lad having caught the bug from my dad, I never got to see him ride as I was too young but there were always photographs of his exploits to look at, and stories being told to listen to and marvel at.

I have been fortunate to have traveled much of this fantastic country by motorcycle and I will never weary of seeing the sights and being immersed in the surroundings as I get about on my bike.

My dream for MANZ is to be able to provide this experience to any and all interested and enthusiastic motorcyclists, I have chosen to fill my fleet with adventure bikes as they not only able to cross countries and continents, but they can cross boundaries too.

There is a general fascination and a genuine interest from passers-by when you arrive in a town on an adventure bike, people will walk up and start chatting about where you have been and where you are going, I have made some really good friends just by parking outside cafés. Adventure bikes are a non threatening form of transport, and the general public find the riders of these bikes quite approachable, so come and ride around New Zealand on an adventure style bike from Motorcycle Adventures New Zealand…  you will have a blast.
