Greetings, I am a newcomer to this group, and I've found it extremely helpful while lurking. My name is Sandy (male, sorry) and I live and work in Bangkok. I hope to soon be back on two wheels in Thailand. My last two bikes (in New York) were HDs, but I'm intending to go dual sport here. I think I'm done shopping, but there's some paperwork to do - more on that in another post. My first question (yup, I'm aware that Auckland is not in Meuang Thai, but thought I'd ask anyway...): I will have a layover in Auckland on Saturday the 27th of October, and have reserved a BMW 650GS to go toodle around for the day. I have never been there, and would appreciate any recommendations regarding a nice scenic, low-traffic meander in and around Auckland, plus any must-see locales. Thanks in advance for your help. S.
