Damn lizard! Stomping and tromping again. Just can't control him.
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

Ah I wondered where that troublesome lizard was hiding, best we boot him out of the country before he demands citizenship, we have enough bludgers living off our taxes. ;D
Hey Ockers, when Scunny has conquered the South Island (so named because it is South of the North Island) then GZ will be coming to the land of snakes and spiders, hope you are ready..........Hush. ;)

Hand over to Scunny went well, we had a Coffee at Mcd's and caused some bemused looks during the photo session  :D
Nearly had a Mr Bean Moment with a Steam Roller (well Diesel Roller sounds just wrong anyway) and the bikes.

You beauty Larry, just be careful taking photos of him in the "Red Zone" as they may blame him for some of the damage. ;)
How many K's did you do on the pick-up run?

Speaking of K's, please send me some stats on how many K's y'all carried GZ.  I need to add the total number of KM's... er.. miles Godzilla traveled since he hit your beautiful shores! 

There is a thread around here somewhere that you can post your total distances.  That post wants to know any and all of the distance you road from home to any meet-up points, K's with GZ on board, K's you escorted another rider who had GZ on board, and the K's you road to get back home.  If those totals exceed 804km (500 miles), 1609km (1000 miles) or 3219km (2000 miles) then there are special threads for those "clubs" too!
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.

Folks we have a winner for the honour of "New Zealand Hard Arse" since no other riders will be taking GZ anywhere near that mileage Scunny/Larry you get the kudos! :)
Here's ya chocolate fish since ya didn't catch any trout on the way home. ;)
Not sure if Mark, Mark, Brett, Wayne, Mike have added their mileage to that post.

Not sure where to post our miles done with GZ on our bikes, I did 160 miles on my leg. :)
