Hi Donald

Have a look at the local NZ bike forum:

www.kiwibiker.co.nz

They have a DS section where they plan rides and do ride reports etc, and they are a really friendly and welcoming bunch.

Much like here in fact.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Is it the Ozzies or the Kiwis that do sheep?..........egg before the chicken type of question? ;D

depends on who you ask....

the Aussies reckon it's the Kiwi's (highest number of sheep per capita in the world)

we reckon it's the Aussies, but that's only because sheepshagger sounds better than kangarooshagger

You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog
will give you a look that says, ??My God, you're right!
I never would've thought of that!?

"Honest officer I was only helping the sheep over the fence" seems to be the standard answer here
