Back in 2013 we visited NZ by car, and immediately know we had to come back and ride a Harley. After some searching on the net I ran across Bularangi's homepage; all the information given their gave us a pretty good feeling that they may be the RIGHT people to deal with.
After intial contact was established Ali was more than very helpful to plan our 4 weeks trip. She even sent a motorcycle atlas to Germany, and gave us additional recommendations based on their experience.
When we arrived a perfectly maintained ULTRA CLASSIC was waiting for us in Auckland. Minor problems, i.e. missing tie-downs for the ferry crossings, were solved immediately. Ali showed her concern when cyclone Pam hit NZ and she contacted us to make sure we understand the situation and how to avoid any risk. We stayed at the Bularangi Lodge in Waihi and Ali spent time with us for an exceptional diner.
We put about 6200 km on the bike, with no problem at all - me dropping it is not the bikes problem :-(
I cannot see anybody beating Bularangi when it comes to touring or hiring a Harley Davidson in NZ.
Thanks again Ali; we had the time of our lifetime.

The guys at Bularangi could not have been more helpful to a pair of virtual novices from England. The bike was in prefect order & we were given all the kit we needed to handle copious amounts of baggage. Importantly, prior to our arrival & over several weeks, Baz or Ali were extremely prompt & helpful with endless email queries & we appreciated their patience. We can't credit Bularangi with creating some of the finest scenery in the world on the South Island but certainly seeing it on one of their bikes made it extra special

On Holiday from the UK. Had a fabulous days ride out from Auckland to and around the coromandel peninsula, very good prices, hired a roadking which was very nicely turned out and rode wonderfully, jackets and helmets supplied, we had a guide for the day who showed us the best route and to give us some local insight. A real nice guy and good rider/guide. I Would recommend this company and this route (but not a great route if your not an experienced rider as the road is very twisty up and downhill ) We loved it😎
We (me and my wife) love to ride a trike on scenic roads.
We have done part of the Route 66 USA (one week journey) and gone from Germany to Nordkapp (Norway) in a 84 days trike journey.
We also have done many tours with our trike over here in Brazil.
But we never ever have so nice and enjoyable journey as in New Zealand.
Ali and Baz are the ones responsible for that.
Fantastic support. Very personal attention in choosing the most scenic roads and very comfortable accommodation.
Congratulations for this special way of treating your customers.
Nothing is perfect so you get a 9! and may I say thank you very much.. good people at the front and the back of the scoot adventure.

We´re a long time Harley riders (me and my wife) in Brazil (where we ride our bike) and worldwide (Europe, US, South America, always on rented bikes), so I am very comfortable to state that we´ve never had the highest level of services (we could say “personal care”) we´ve got from Baz (the Master of the Bikes) and (Ali, the Angel Guardian of our journey). They provide good bikes, maps, accommodation, tips and a valuable support to fulfill my wife´s dream to be at the Hobbit premiere in Wellington and to have a dinner at Hobbiton´s Green Dragon Pub
We did a 20 days independent tour in both islands, riding 3000km in 2 bikes and 15 overnight places. Even though it was a complete unknown country (continent, hemisphere) for us (not to mention the left lane drive “look right and drive left” – Baz´ golden tip), we felt always very confident and protected by our Boularangi friends, like when we face a sturdy thunderstorm in Coromandel Peninsula and Ali shows all her concern, care and professionalism, advising us to stay one day more where we are, to avoid us to drive amidst the storm.
We will surely be back to NZ (we´ve miss the Coromandel Loop on a good wheather, it rained all the time ) and surely will hire Boularangi again.
Thanks and cheers to all you kiwi awesome guys
Ali and Baz have got to be the best "business/customer" oriented people I have ever met. They provided a great experience for us, with very well maintained scooters. I could not have asked for more. It was like meeting up with my best bros right from start to finish.
Like Spinaltap's amps, these folks are a definite "11". Thank you so very much!
Great experience!! great people
They are the best!!
I will recommend to anyone wanting to hire a bike in NZ.
