Thought that might get you excited Ben!

So I have about 2 months to get the bike ready and in a crate on its way to France. There's also a possibility my Land Rover will be going with it, as Ben's transport as Service Vehicle. Going to be very busy!

I also have to come up with squillions of dollars as I don't actually have enough at the moment to cover what we need. I'll prepare a sponsorship proposal package, but everyone can help by sending me the contact details of anyone you know in organisations that might be open to an approach. I'll be specifically targeting some large NZ corporates (Air NZ, Tourism NZ, Refining NZ) for major contributions, and have some companies I have contacts in for some medium contributions but this where all you Kiwis can help me out. I really, really want to do this with NZ backing as much as possible as a point of differentiation. That should make my bike an attraction for media and therefore a good prospect for advertising ROI. So c'mon everyone - I need your help! PM me your "inside line" contact details.

I'll also try and put together some sort of support packages with "swag kit" for individuals too. More on this in a while.

Hang on tight ... this is going to be quite a ride!
Cheers everyone.
