Yea Scunny, I think there were 2 riders between you and Hush.  ShortShins was one, maybe??? 
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.

Yep I handed off to Mark in Dannevirke then he handed off to Shortshins in Shannon who took it through to Wellington where Scunny picked it up.
I've done some calcs and Wayne (can't remember his sig) did 250 miles from Mangawhai heads to Kaitaia and return.
Brent (sig?)did some miles around Waiheke Island, say 20 miles (probably more)
Mark (sig?) took it from me in Dannevirke to Shannon, 51 miles (probably more)
Shortshins took it off Mark and did the Shannon to Wellington leg, 71 miles.
These are only my calcs but by the look of it add another at least 392 miles for New Zealand riders. :)
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!!!!!!!

Are you taking bikie up to Pukekohe for the classic bike racing? It would turn a few heads up there.
My Manager at eork is going through, we are planning a combined ride up there next year with a few mates, sleep in tent, drink a little, watch old iron run around at crazy speeds. :D

Pukekohe classics 2013.

The annual Sad Old Gits ride headed south this year instead of the usual north to the Pukekohe classic, but we are looking at doing Puke next year.
Beware we may team up with some Yamaha SR500 riding folks.
we usually stay at Waingaro, Nice ride up higway 22  :)
