I would love to visit New Zealand when I retire. I am a big fan of Burt, and of course want to visit Invercargill, just for the history of it all. Hard to believe anyone could keep this bike running, let alone hit an unofficial 205 miles per hour!

Plus any country with "Southern Alps" has got to be a great place to ride a motorcycle!

Your right element, Burt was a legend. If you visit Invercargill make sure you have your thermals on, no offence to those that live there but the trees on the southern coast bend over and lean north because of the prevailing southerly blast from the antarctic, suppose that what shaped burt as they bred some pretty hard men down there. Was at burt munro event last year, bikes from every where, speed way, beach racing has it all well worth going if you get over

Yep pretty awsome riding across pass's through the alps, 5 hrs for me to ride from where i live on east coast south island to Greymouth west coast. Cheers Phil

you are right kiwi, Burt was a legend and the movie was pretty good too.
Those southerly blasts affect most of the coastline of NZ I think and it does get rather disconcerting at times when you have to lean so much when out riding along the coast especially when coming on sheltered spots along the way.

Interesting insights on the Antartic breezes; had never thought about that. Everything is just so upside down down under! That makes me wonder, in the movie, Burt "watered"
his Lemon tree, if I remember correctly. Is that possible given a colder climate there, or was that just Hollywood fluff? But no matter, one of the best movies ever, regardless of the accuracy of insignificant details like that. I'm going to have to put up another picture of my
Indian Kit bike, which I knicknamed the "Little Big Man". You would not believe how many people actually thought it was the real deal, Chinese honda motor and all.

I also referred to it as the "World's Slowest Indian". Not true though. Stock
it has a top speed of 57, and I believe Burt said his Scout originally would do
54 MPH.

Dont get me wrong Invercargill does get brillant sunny weather and can be hot. I live 400km north and we probably have harder frosts, come home from night shift a couple of nights ago and it was 0 celcius but warmed up to 20 Celcius by lunch (my small lemon tree also produces good lemons). There is no need to irrigate the land down there as they have a higher rainfall but that wind can be bitter and strong at times. The people are freindly and to encourage people to live in the south they have a zero fee's for their tertiary education which the student fees are funded by local business.

Little big man looks awsome. I think the only thing i heard kiwis moan about movie was anthony hopkins trying to do a kiwi accent but his acting was A1
