Giday from Kiwiland

HELLO WORLD!
62 years on bikes, from my first Canadian Tire Road Racer, thought Dawes, into BSA Road Rocket, Triumph Bonneville, HD Sportsters HD FX , last 20 years bicycle riding on a Avanti Ridge Rider, until it died 2 months ago.
Now a low milage but beautiful Giant Iguana.
Bike wise, mostly run the Standard Schnauzer free range down the road to the beach and along the tide line 3- 4 times a day.

Im originally a Torontonian (Trona guy) lived in MTL, NYC, Rio, Dallas, last 25 years Auckland.
Happy Trails to you!

Unfortunately, Jersey
Right across New York City near the Lincoln Tunnel.

No, I don't think they have them anymore by the tunnel.
But I think they have them hanging by the entrance to
the Port Authority bus terminal in case an oversized truck
makes a wrong turn.

How is biking in NZ compared w/ North America?
