Mike and Alison Rose have made it their business to provide the best New Zealand has to offer.
The Roses are English by birth and Kiwi’s by choice. They are both passionate about New Zealand and all things motorcycle and love running a family owned business.
Mike is a qualified advanced motorcyclist, first aider and born organiser; and Alison is a registered nurse who loves people. She also has an uncanny ability when it comes to creating tour itineraries for any budget. Along with Trevor Stafford and Wayne Searle, they offer top quality motorcycle rentals, guided and self-guided motorcycle tours around New Zealand. Trevor Stafford is a partner and tour guide known for his sense of humour. He has been riding Beemers since the age of 21 and is the King of random facts about New Zealand (he’s unquestionably the guy you want on your pub quiz team). Wayne is in charge of Christchurch operations - he knows the South Island like the back of his hand and is always ready to greet you with a warm welcome and a big smile.
Together they have changed the face of motorcycle rentals and tours in New Zealand by raising the standards and being the leaders in their field - where they start. others follow - no longer will you be handed the keys to an old, high mileage motorcycle and be told 'there you go Mate, just head south!" For this, they are proud.
