What's new? New Zealand!

The duffle bag seemed to grow each time my dream recycled, until it was so huge that it must have contained at least two bodies!† I wake up realizing that Iím still at 40,000 feet somewhere over the pacific, still, a tinge of terror remains as I go over, in my head, all that I packed.† Will it really fit on my Tiger?

So how does one describe a 29 day motorcycle adventure...
