Of course it costs money to run these bikes, so rather than use the money we raise for the people of Burma, how bout you sponsor a bike?
We want to raise $1000 per bike to cover fuel and maintenance. There’s a thermometer to show progress here, and you can either make Paypal donation belowor just email us and tell us how much you want to give! Big thanks in advance!!!

I live and work in the Hutt valley, Spent too many years in the international Freight Forwarding industry but now spends his time helping unemployed people find work and providing consultancy around the ‘Biosecurity’ regulations for importers who import shipping containers of product to NZ. Married to Awatea – lovely mother of our two great kids, Rachael and Dion, now in their 30’s. Also helps a Burmese family learn English and visits a couple of guys in prison, who’ll need a mate or two when they’re released.
A hyperactive social freak who enjoys living, motorcycling, tramping and being around mates, especially in the out doors
Why I’m doing the ride:
I was deeply impacted by a trip into Burma and Partners Chiang Mai office in 2010. To see the amazing work that Partners do in bringing help and hope to the displaced people of Burma – with such warmth and gentleness reduced me to tears several times. We spent a day in a displaced persons camp – 200 people who had fled their villages and found safety under the protection a small resistance army outpost on the Thai border. Partners had helped these families and soldiers find and pipe water into their village and build a small ‘hospital’ in the camp to protect the health of the villagers and continued to help them in their ongoing needs for health, schooling and contact with the outside world. They were enriched to see that others from distant countries were concerned enough with their plight to come and find ways to be alongside, learn from them and find ways to help them live with some hope. I love the work that Partners do as well as the kind ‘alongside’ way they do it – chatting and listening rather than assuming that ‘we know best’.
KIA KAHA PARTNERS!!
