Perry's Motorally Aotearoa 2021

Kia ora and a massive thank you for checking in!

OK – so what is Motorally Aotearoa 2021 – and more importantly – why is i?!

Firstly the what. April 15th next year will see a bunch of like-minded guys setting off from Auckland for the top of the top and starting our journey the length of New Zealand wearing our hearts on our sleeves and the great work of the MHF on our backs.

Over ten days we’ll ride from Cape Reinga to Bluff, mostly on Vespa scooters but with a few other bike types thrown in for good measure in support of the work of the Mental Health Foundation.

Make no mistake – at our age, this will hurt! Vespas are designed for a trip around town not long open road riding but we love our bikes and we love this cause more.  Every day, thousands of Kiwis are challenged to get through, often without the resources, they need to maintain positive well-being and function well in their everyday lives. So it’s a great fit that we’ll be challenged too.

We’re doing this to raise awareness that everyone – and we mean everyone – has their own state of mental health. And that nothing is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ but that every so often some of us need a helping hand to get through.


Your donation will go towards helping the 1 in 5 Kiwis who will experience mental illness this year, and enabling the Mental Health Foundation to provide individuals, workplaces, schools and communities with even more of the tools needed to build positive mental health and wellbeing.

We’re ambitious, optimistic…probably mad…but we want to raise a minimum of $100,000 and every little bit counts so thanks for whatever you can do to support us on the way.

We sincerely appreciate your support – and if you’re interested in joining the ride for a day leave us a message and we’ll get in touch!
