Kelvin and Debbie

Kelvin & Debbie - Business Owners

Husband and wife team, both mad keen motorcyclists, Debbie is also a keen horse rider (one hp at a time!!). Debbie currently rides a Yamaha R15 and Kelvin a Yamaha YZF R1. Kelvin is also a keen off road rider, he started riding at the tender age of 10, owning a variety of bikes, he was also once the South Island Shot Putt Champion, but that was in last century so no worries there.

Keen travelers and  both enjoy ocean fishing.

Clive - Associate

Clive bought his first motorcycle in the early '70s, a 49cc Raleigh Runabout, a machine which required pedaling into even the slightest headwind.  After progressing through a variety of bikes he qualified as a RAC Instructor in 1976 and has ridden motorcycles ever since, thankfully all of them a little faster than the Raleigh.  He knows New Zealand like the back of his hand and will probably be the one who picks you up from the Airport, hands over your bike and deals with the paperwork.  He is an 'I' Endorsed Motorcycle Instructor and a NZTA Assessor for BHST, and CBTA 6R and 6F, so if you want to sit your motorcycle test he's the one to talk to. 

Likes red wine, losing at chess to his 9 year old son and playing around with old tractors.
