Welcome to

Hello, and welcome to!

Our mission is simple. We want to be the primary source of relevant motorcycling news for the modern Kiwi motorcyclist.

With so much information available at our fingertips, finding accurate and relevant information regarding motorcycling has become harder in recent years. With that in mind, was created in late 2018 to fill the gap in the local media market for an online source of general motorcycling news, reviews and features to keep local riders informed and entertained.

The site is run by Mathieu Day-Gillett, a freelance motoring writer based in the Waikato who has written about motoring news right here in New Zealand since 2012.

Having written for publications including the New Zealand Herald, Driven Magazine, Bike Exif, Bike Rider Magazine, Kiwi Rider, and more, Mat has experience in the New Zealand motorcycling industry like few others. is updated regularly with news, reviews and features on motorcycling from NZ and around the world, and we work closely with our friends at Kiwi Rider Magazine to provide the best motorcycling content in NZ with news content from regularly published in Kiwi Rider's twice-monthly digital magazine. 


So join us for the ride and let's make Kiwi motorcycling great again!
