Two wheels in the left field.

I know what your thinking,

Why New Zealand?

Why not buy a bike when you get there?

Why are you bringing so much stuff?

Are you going alone?

Where in New Zealand are you going?

So many questions, I have been asked, and it left me to realise, even some I dont know the answer to… But I am on a journey to find out.

My journey to New Zealand began, when I lost a job I loved in the ONE place in all of Canada that I adored… Then I realised, where else in the world could I be living right now where the living could be better?

You know all those Instagram travellers, the ones who have thousands of likes and viewers and comments and admirers they don’t even know what to do with other then sell the next vacation from your 9-5? What they don’t tell you often, is how they make their money, and how they afford to travel, they usually just make some random blog to funnel you into their click bait cycle of “pay me so I can tell you how I took your money, and you can do the same! Just post awesome pictures of yourself sacrificing the money you just paid me to look cool and gain experiences but no real monetary value and convince others to pay you to learn how so they can do the same.” Sounds like pyramid scheme right?

Lets say this is one of the most inspirational turning points of my life, the realisation that I can work anywhere in the world, and live anywhere in the world. Maybe not forever, but do you know anyone who has lived in one home or city forever?

The trick to this whole lifestyle change of living in another country, living on the left side of the road, and living on a motorbike, is to simply change your perspective.

You do not need starbucks, or netflix, or facebook, instagram,

You don’t need a roof over your head, (ever heard of camping, to some that is the best time of their lives, and that’s a vacation),

You don’t need a consistent pay cheque ( Does anyone ever really have a promised pay cheque? Have you never been fired? Have you never worked for a company that went bankrupt? What about a business that was forced to shut down? Ever noticed your pay cheque missing a few hours because you were sick on monday?)

You do not need to plan the next 10 years of your life for life to happen, you just have to make a plan..

With all of this in mind, I changed my life to live on two wheels and live overseas and get a job overseas..

Only 9 months of preparation, and $30,000.00 savings, over $10,000.00 worth of new gear, $2500 in new repairs on my motorcycle, and $2500 in shipping, $6000 in flights, and $14,000.00 paid off in debt… Im proud to say I am READY to be on two wheels in the left field…

By this I mean, not only is New Zealand friendly to travellers vandwellers, and tenters, but also friendly to moto nomads like myself who have come from the right side of life, ( I mean the road…) to the left side of the field… I mean more sheep than people kinda field. Im talking, if you get into the left field those sheep are taking you and your two wheels down field.

Watch angry ram attacking biker here:

So begins my journey of blogging about what life on two wheels in new zealand riding on the left side of the road will be like.. and the feild.. the left side of the feild, avoiding as many sheep as possible like dodgeball, with my two wheels sport bike engine and dual sport tires.
