Meet the team

Hi, Lance and Sally here. We’ll be your personal guides on your Open Road Tour of New Zealand.

Open Road Motorcycle Tours is a small family run operation based in sunny Northland. After having some fantastic riding experiences overseas, we decided to start Open Road Motorcycle Tours here in New Zealand. Those trips allowed us to meet some great people, experience outstanding scenery and enjoy great adventures on amazing roads. And they made us realise: we have all this and more to offer in New Zealand. So why not showcase it to the world? Once we understood this would involve riding all around this fabulous place, and buying more bikes, there was no stopping us!

Join us on tour, on the open roads of New Zealand. We know you’ll love it, and we’ll do everything we can to make it the experience of a lifetime. We hope to meet you soon. We might start out as strangers but by the end of a tour we’ve all become great friends.

Not just a team, but also a family
