Good man Scunny, I must say I'm a tad dissapointed in the Southern men leaving you to carry the can for the whole South Island.
I went onto Trademe and every SOHC4 for sale I added that they would be elligible to ride on the tour if the purchaser bought the bike, I must say the sellers were most receptive as it may have swung the odd sale.
Hopefully a few new members on the SOHC4 site as well.
One of our local newspaper reporters used to own a mint 350f so I am going to approach him to give us some publicity for the NZ leg.
I was contacted by a guy up North of Auckland who is keen too so I may get GZ to start up there and work down, I'm still seeing GZ in NZ about mid October and with some good riding weather he could possibly do NZ in 3 fast weeks.
I think the thing I most like about motorcycling is the speed at which my brain must process information at to avoid the numb skulls who are eating pies, playing the ukulele, applying make-up etc in the comfort of their airconditioned armchairs as they make random attempts to kill me!!!!!!!

Oh I don't know Scunny, we could do the North Island circuit from Auckland to Wellington via Napier then run back up the West Coast to hook up with Fishman Phil in Taranaki and then run straight back down the middle through Taihape back to Wellington.
Same for you, Picton-Blenheim-Kaikura-Christchurch-Dunedin-Bluff then back up the West Coast across the mountains, but I guess we will have to let the Aussies have GZ some time seeing as how they probably won't get to see the Rugby World Cup final. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Now there's the spirit!  Give GZ a nice long ride.  So what are you gonna do for the other two weeks? ;)

Hey guys, I'm trying to get Team Pacific Northwest done. We have covered all the states and provinces so it's your turn! Hope to be sending Godzilla your way soon. It'll have to travel across a few borders first. One last stretch in British Columbia and hopefully that will be completed by the end of this coming week  ;D  Put up your BS boots and get out yer ridin' boots! Get er done  ;)
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

All good Jerry, I don't think we will need more than October to get through NZ then the Ockers can have GZ for November. :)

Hey Hush
If it helps with the planning of GZ's tour I cant' do the weekend of October 15 16.
The wife got her leave pass in first  :D
And she won't take the kids away with her  ::)
Still it's all points in the good behavior bank   :)

That's all good Shortshins, I'm picking that 15th will be the earliest GZ actually arrives in NZ and then it's up to our first rider Brett who lives on Waiheke Island to set the pace.
Still not sure of his connecting rider, am hopeful of some local 750 guys wanting to stretch the legs of their big bikes over the Hamilton to Napier distance.
Start thinking more early to mid November for your leg mate, I may have been a bit optimistic thinking we could complete NZ in October......Hush. :)

One thing we've learned so far is GZ sets his own pace.  Be flexible in your scheduling and ....enjoy the ride when he arrives!

OK aparently the Lizard is in the country, also strangely there is a mysterious package at the courier company for me to pick up so I'm betting it got sent to the wrong address, which is not a bad thing as I have a couple more riders who have linked up since my initial tour plan so GZ might be seeing a bit more of NZ than we planned.
Unfortunately he has arrived just in time for our Labour Day long week end so he is going to be stuck in Napier (If he is at the courier company) for a day or two, pehaps he can join me on some sight seeing. ;)

Looks like:

583 miles with Scunny (land and sea)
 30 miles with onagd
105 miles with Hush
------------
721 GZ Miles for NZ

Do those numbers look right to y'all?
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.
