You boys ready to ride?
« on: September 05, 2011, 09:19:45 am »
I posted this in Team OZ:

Hey mates (I find that term strange to use in the US  ;) )

Godzilla is on his final North American leg. I'm thinking that Ofreen will be on the move in a few days and tearing up the Pacific Northwest region. He is a true rider and wastes no time! He should have GZ to Oregon in a few days once they meet again. After Ofreen turns him loose I can't be sure of the events. Follow that on Team Pacific Northwest. Hopefully he'll move swiftly across the US Rocky Mountains then into the Canadian Rockies as we'll begin to see the potential for mountain snowfall once again. I camped in the mountains Sat night and the overnight temp was below freezing. I'm hoping we'll be done within a few weeks. I'm thinking that as our seasonal weather heads downhill you guys/mates should be beginning to have really nice riding weather now?? Once Team PNW completes GZ's journey in Vancouver, BC, Canada we'll ship him to Team Kiwi. Now that's where you'll have to light the fire  ;D

If you guys get GZ in NZ by 10/1 will that give NZ and OZ plenty of time to do both countries before your weather turns bad once again? What would be the theoretical latest start you guys could do in NZ to have proper seasonal riding weather to complete both countries?

Riding season here in the South is fast approaching, still some issues for my preferred route thru the mountain passes for a few weeks. NZed wont take long to knock off, Aussie is a slightly bigger lump of dirt. they should be good thru till march/ april I imagine, that would give the UK/Europe a good go thru their good weather.

Hey Jerry when you say you guys get GZ in NZ by 10/1 you mean October 1 not January 10?

Yeah, that's the American 10/1 ie October. Always open for a global education  ;) Hopefully we can make that date work. How about it Team Pacific Northwest?

Bring it on eh Shortshins, Mark, Onagd and Scunny ha ha.
Anything our colonial cousins can do I'm sure we can duplicate. ;)
October 1st is our new target, whose closest to top of the country!
Guess it's Onagd, Auckland to where ever you want to stop.
            ?     :)     Hamilton to Napier, hoping for some 750 boys from Hastings to do this leg
                 Hush Napier to Woodville.
                 Mark Woodville to Levin.
         Shortshins Levin to Wellington.
         Scunny you get the whole South Island, up to you how far you take GZ.
I seriously have no other riders for the Sth Island!! :-[
Feel free to come further up to meet your change over rider if you want so you can ride with them.

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!!!!!!!

better finish putting the old girl together then, depending on when I get to pick up GZ, there is a run to Waimate coming up so might get it further south than planned. am I too old to do a couple of thousand clicks, time will tell.  ;D
