Kiwi riders sign in here for NZ leg of relay
« on: March 21, 2011, 11:10:48 pm »
Dang what I wouldn't give to have my bike in the states right now to be able to put faces to the people I have been on this forum with for the last few years. :(
It's kinda like Woodstock, who will be able to say "I was on the very first SOHC4 relay ride in 2011"? :)
Ride safe and keep the shiny side up guys'n gals. :)

Or... "The very first RIDER on the very first SOHC4 relay ride in 2011", sorry, I couldn't resist. Anyway, I don't know where the baton goes after "IT" leaves the continental U.S. but I don't see why New Zealand couldn't be included as well. I know it misses the mark as far as being able to ride with some of the forum members that you have come to know only by their online posts, but you may still be able to say "I was on the very first SOHC4 relay ride in 2011" if we can coordinate a leg across New Zealand! This is the "SOHC/4 World Tour" after all, and I think Godzilla storming New Zealand would make for some excellent photo ops. Once the relay across our continent nears completion I would expect to see new regional threads about those regions "beyond" as they prepare to receive the baton and continue to carry "IT" on. Stay tuned, and kickstands up, wheels down.

I don't see why NZ can't show the flag as well.

I'm probably moving to NZ or Oz at the end of September and I'm gonna try to bring my bike. I think Jerry already dubbed me the international carrier. Think you can wait that long? I'd love to have some old cb's greet me when I arrive, or at least go with me when my bike gets there. I still have to wait to see if the wife gets a job there first. fingers crossed

Yeah, I was wondering if I should strap him to the bike or just have him in my carry on. I'm sure I'll get where I'm going about a month before my bike. If we do go there and I get to bring my bike, I'll most likely be riding it from AR to Cali. I'll probably see if anyone wants to make the trip, or part of it, with me.

Bring your bike Randam, NZ aint got that many SOHC4's and many have met terrible fates at the hands of idiot PO's.
Once Gozilla crosses USA and Canada, I presume it then departs for Europe/England, is there an Aussie leg?

I plan on bringing my bike. I talked to Terry in Aus a little about how much bikes are over there and if it would be worth shipping. I think from what others have said it's well worth shipping, and my wife has oked it. ;D I really can't get rid of it since I got the info I just got. When I bought my bike I rode with a friend to get it. I put all the paperwork on the bike in his car. Last weekend he gave me the paperwork. The guy I got it from didn't know sht about bikes. The guy before him is a great man and I'd like to shake his hand. My bike has the 836 kit and lots of other extras that I didn't know about! I'll have to get the paper and make a post about a good po soon. I'd like to see if the guy who built my bike is on this forum.

I do believe you are correct. Thanks Hush. Who gets Godzilla first, you or Terry? You guys gotta make good use of your spring/our fall and get the riding done before you send Godzilla on to merry old England for spring 2012.

Hmm well considering we only got about 6 SOHC4 members in NZ we may have an issue with this, I know Scunny and Toy Collector are in Christchurch and there are two members in Wellington, Fisherman Phil (who hasn't been on here for ages) is in Taranaki, must be some in Auckland surely?
Give me some time to figure this out! ;D

If you take a US bike down under do you have to convert it to right hand drive?  ;D

Hey Hush, Brett here, one of the Auckland members. If you are "coordinating" the NZ leg of this rally then you can count me in. I'm on Waiheke Island, fantastic place for "Godilla" to try some of the local "grapes" and or hops if you prefer.

Where are you?? If you are anywhere in the US lower 48, the relay will get near you. ;)
