The BMW Owners Association (BMWMOA) publishes a monthly magazine, BMW Owners News. I submited an article about a motorcycle tour my wife and I took in New Zealand on the South Island in February 2004. This trip was a wedding anniversary present to ourselves.
The BMW Owner’s News published my article in the May, 2009 issue. You will find good information about MC touring on the South Island, and can read about some of our adventures as an Antarctic low crossed the South Island in the summer time.
