GZ v1.0, the legend, is smiling down on me. He is retired like me.

Mooshie, I'm assuming you are riding the Alps. Taking your bike or renting? I gotta follow that. May be on my list for next year as a full retirement present?

Renting a Honda (of course) and going with Edelweiss tours.  Austria to Switzerland to Italy back to Austria.  I cannot wait. I will be posting pics on my blog. 



Lisa - Plz post a link to your blog.  I'm sure there are many of us that want to follow along [and virtual ride with you!]

Greg:  I loved your ride report.  It was fantastic meeting you.  Can't wait to take a ride together in 2017--plan on it. 

I will.

Fred, the engine looks great.

Thanks RAF.

Thanks...have a great trip!  I've been to Europe 3 times and every one was a memorable, wonderful experience. I'm sure yours will be too and I'm hoping my next trip there is on a bike!

The front cover says 2014 it is the log that travels with PZ. It is very interesting to read. Especially the responses when Fat Matts girlfriend dressed up Godzilla and we dubbed him Pimpzilla

I'm pretty sure there are more than 1. I think the one I signed in 2013 was different from the one I signed in 2011

I stand corrected this one is from 2013 and started on 3/9/13 with Madmtnmotors (Wilbur).  I don't actually know how many log books there are but this is the one I have.

I think each GZ has his own logbook.  The one you have has my entries from 2013 and 2014.

Hi Steve:  Here is the link to my blog.  I start riding on the 5th of August and until the 13th I think.  I am so excited about all of this I cannot wait for this adventure.

Thanks...have a great trip!  I've been to Europe 3 times and every one was a memorable, wonderful experience. I'm sure yours will be too and I'm hoping my next trip there is on a bike!

Do you follow Mihai? There is some amazing country in Romania.

So I'll be posting pictures and my ride report on the other thread soon.

In the mean time, who wants him next? I can check with the Kalamazoo crew to see if they would like him and ride up to deliver in a few weeks.

Thanks for the visit.............PZ was very happy to take another short ride on my K3. Your ignition timing may be 'off' a few degrees............the kick-start will be more effective when its 'right-on'.  I sold one of my scooters at the Rocker-Box swap-meet.............along with a few other parts...........and I bought that CB750F2 project..........so I came home with an extra $50 ;D

I'm right next door to you over in NWI and would have offered to take him, but my riding time is extremely limited until July 10. Michigan may be better for now, still hoping Sean will bring him back towards NWI later in the year so I can take him down to Ron towards Indy.

The Midwest has definitely gotten the short end of the short end of the Godzilla stick the past few years. This is only the 2nd time through Chicago and the first time for more than a single afternoon. The same with Indiana. He hit a corner of NWI in May 2011, then not since.

He was in NWI last year with Sean and I, we took him from Whiting->Cedar Lake->Lowell->Back to MI with Sean.

OK. I didn't remember reading that.

My sister lives in Crete, IL, a few miles west of Dyer. I would have no issue taking a trip your way with him.
