Bacon wants to go home to Australia

Tomorrow I will be picking Bacon up, he will return to NZ with me in a couple of weeks.

For those of you who are confused already here is a link to the little pigs trip report

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=287919

Somehow we have to get him across the Tasman. I will be without a bike (for approx 2 months) until mine gets back in the country so he really needs to be picked up from Taranaki.

So everyone put your thinking caps on and help get Bacon home!

And in case you are confused about me, here is a link to Leanne and my Europe trip blog

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=971014

Thank you

Mike

the only bacon on any ride should be sitting beside eggs on a plate

there is something emotionally wonky about people who ride with stuffed toys.....

Is a 'stuffed toy' a soft tactile representation of a human construct or just an old adventure bike on its last legs?

If you can get him to the mmmm ride on the 15th August. I can get him back to Aus...

Funny. I just read the original thread. I met bacon's dad in Melbourne 5 years ago. We used to work in the same building :)

Mike, I "might" be able to help, dependant on my trip planning for getting to the MMM, one option was to spend an extra day around Taranaki before the ride (Kiwi Road excetera).
Once I know what Gary (Petes' brother) is doing I will let you know.

Laugh Bacon on a Postie Bike fund raiser in SA?

Mike - been spending most of my time lately in the Aus forum - today I'm in Peterborough SA - planning to be part of charity ride to held in the Flinders at the end of August - would he like to go on that ride - much like 'Pooey' the stuffed ostrich I took to the Brass with Struan in 09 - just askin :)

Hope your travels were all you and Leanne could have wished for

Hi Steve, I am still travelling, currently in Krakow. Bacon would love to go on that ride but I need to get him from the Naki to Aussie first :-)

Are you on holiday over there or working?

As this is Bacon's first visit to NZ I have decided that he needs to see NZ first. NordieBoy in Nelson is also keen for him to visit.

So that is the plan, I will pass him onto a biker heading South, of course only after he has seen the Naki (not that I have a bike at the moment).

Mike

If he's still looking for a ride south after the C2C I'd be happy to have a passenger
