Suzuki DR650 'Millie' - LAMS Approved, Hire from $99/day

An awesome all rounder best describes the DR650, equally at home in the mud as it is on the highway.  Cruises along comfortably at legal speeds with still plenty in reserve for those passing lanes.  The seat (that bugger of an OEM seat) has been modified to cushion your buttocks with fairy like softness so you wont walk like John Wayne after dismounting from a long day in the saddle.  'High Ho Silver' and off you go! (or was that the Lone Ranger?)

Note that this rental motorcycle is LAMS Approved and comes with soft side panniers and a rear rack, more than enough luggage space for a tour around New Zealand.
