New Zealand couple successfully motorcycle across DMZ

Bikers on an inter-Korean "ride for peace"

A New Zealand couple on Thursday successfully led a convoy of five motorcycles across the heavily guarded DMZ, as part of a high profile "ride for peace" through the two Koreas.

The couple initially entered North Korea at the Russian border crossing of Tumangang on August 16, before riding south for two weeks to enter South Korea using a route normally reserved for access to the jointly run Kaesong Industrial Zone.
