Well Godzilla has seen a pretty big part of the top area of the North Island of New Zealand and thanks to Brett has been toured around Waiheke Island, soon he will be Southward bound again and heading for new riders, get ready to saddle up guys he's a commin! ;D

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!!!!!!!

OK that link doesn't work and it won't let me post my "EVENTS" section.
If you put SOHC4 Honda Motorbike World Tour plus GODZILLA in the facebook search space you should get there.

Alternately "friend" Rick Hicks and you can see them from my Facebook page. ;D

I am still awaiting some of the photos from up North but as Brett has gone down to the Burt Munroe Challenge I expect I won't see them for a week now.
In the mean time check out the Burt Munroe Challenge, remember he was the guy with the Fastest Indian in the move of the same name. :)

We know GZ is a hit with the ladies but is he child friendly?

LMAO! That's quite the welcoming party!

And yes, GZ has proven to be child friendly (one rider reported on his child teething on the piston!) but you might check to see if GZ has showered lately...

I remember one post where GZ was perched atop the bones of a rotting animal corpse!

Soon to cross the ditch (Cook Strait) and head into the deep dark (damp) South Island, I say let GZ swim, he did in a movie I saw!
Looks like my replacement bike maybe coming from Dunedin, did I contemplate flying down and riding up to catch up with Scunny? Hell yes I did but sewing my testicles back on after having Jaffa chew them off over me riding back 1040 klm on a bike I don't know cured me of that idea.....for now! ;D
