I was almost too late
old war-birds on their way to Omaka for the Easter Weekend 2015 Classic Fighters Airshow.
..because here in Nelson, New Zealand…
courtesy of a local millionaire…we have the
largest historic motorcycle display in New Zealand.
Actually, and not exactly in-consequential ….not just NZ… as of March 2015…..… it happens to be the largest dedicated so called motorbike display in the planets Southern Hemisphere!
…according to her website thats what she is.
Though my photo does it no justice, its pretty big.
tried to get an extra photo via Googles special panorama camera app,
but didn’t work? ….. chopped the top of the mast ….
…looks like the mast is still too tall?
Did read yesterday you can charter her for USD$268,000 per week!
…well if you’ve been reading my blog here for a while, and you’re into hops…..
you guessed right, its NELSON. Craft Brew capital of New Zealand we say.
…..does anyone in NZ remember Paul?
Seems some NZ City Councils, even small ones like in Nelson ….
spent like a NZD$1m to get “the name out there” BUT I ask could there be a better way (taking Paul into account)
Here above is my OPEN LETTER to KIWIs everywhere…
So if not a Kea how about a marine version….kinda like Paul….NZ actually has a few of these and thats exactly why I included a photo of NZs pre-eminent marine research authority located in…where else…NELSON.
Surely they can come up with something. Or NIWA s local Nelson office might beat the Wellington Head Office if they get their heads together tomorrow!
