Who is behind RemoteMoto?

RemoteMoto is the doing of a rider by the name of Josh Martin. Josh has spent years riding, camping and GPS logging remote routes all over New Zealand. The main challenge Josh encountered when planning routes was finding quality information. Most information was either outdated, incorrect or simply didn't exist. This sparked the idea for RemoteMoto and the goal to be the ultimate resource for planning epic adventures with the most detailed and accurate information possible.

If you are considering an adventurous tour of the South Island then you must check out This is the site I used to plan my journey, the most comprehensive site of its type I have ever seen and well and truly gets my vote. Everything from easy gravel tracks to real challenging terrain all for the taking. Highly recommend.

I use RemoteMoto as a tool for planning my New Zealand DVDs. A truckload of routes and sound information on this website. Hard to beat it for sorting a great route of New Zealand. It gets two thumbs up from me.

I have been using RemoteMoto for quite a while now when planning trips around the South Island. The GPS files are easy to use and the route descriptions and grading are absolutely first class. I've found the reviews on tyres and gear to be accurate and helpful when looking for new kit. A great resource site for anyone who wants to get off the beaten track.

What a great resource for adventure riders, masses of track information, photos and great reviews from the riders who use it. As a remotemoto rider I've had ton of fun collecting Mototokens and checking out a lot of places I may not have gone to without the use of the excellent website information. New or old hand at riding I thoroughly recommend joining up to you won't regret it.
