Congrats on your CT purchase. The bike will steal your heart.
A magnificent spirited motorcycle.
Enjoy your tour of the South Island.
Btw. I was in Auckland some years ago, rented a bike, Honda 750 and took a ride in the country with no riding gear. Beautiful countryside, though I ran through a swarm of bees, a number got inside my shirt. I shall never forget driving down the road on the left side, being stung by bees while I was beating my chest and stomach trying to kill them ,great fun. It never occurred me to pull over.
