Russ Malkin started his tour of New Zealand and the South Pacific just the way he wanted – exploring Auckland and the West Coast by BMW 1200GS motorbike.
This adventure was one Russ wasn’t sure he would have time to do before he departed for the Cook Islands but it seems everything worked out - apart from the rain of course.
Thanks to BMW and Ken Newell for helping Russ find a bike for the day, an excellent way to start the adventures down under.
