This is true. Many things happen backwards down here; our toilets, hurricanes, seasons, politics ...

New Zealand is a little lower down the latitudes than where I am, so it gets regular snow in the winter.
N.Z is one of those places that was actually built for motorcycle riding.
Uh-huh. You read it right. The only reason N.Z South island was invented was for people to ride motorcycles on it The roads ... the scenery ... the roads .....

Here in Oz, we have a pretend little NZ.
It's called Tasmania. An island off the south edge of Australia.
Absolutely brilliant riding roads and scenery that is beyond spectacular.
Damn shame you fellas a little far away to just pop over and have a look ...
It's warm here. Did I mention that ..?

I've got access to a Bass boat, wonder how much gas I'd need to load on to get down there? Wonder if it'll float with my 900 on it?

Hook the 9 motor up to a propellor. Should be able to be done. Sounds like a plan!

If you load them up on a photo share (Fliker, or anything of that nature) site you can link them to it. I find it a lot easier.

You seem to be linking to pics on a hard drive on your computer. That will not work at all. You need to host them on Picasa, photobucket, etc and then link to the pics. More pic help in my Signature.
