Drain the brake fluid from his motorbike? Don't worry, ACC will cover the subsequent hospitalization and physiotherapy.

Cool Re: Hello everyone in Wellington NZ

Thanks for the advice HappyNZ!!

I am only jealous of him really..... When I get a job....(roflmao) I can have a big bike of my own...apparently!!

All the gear is still in transit..so cant go pillion either..not that I would want to with him being manic and all!! He has somehow managed to 'Borrow' some gear for himself despite claiming not to know a soul here in this fine country

I say leave him be - NZ is a big boys play ground. Jet skiing, scuba, kayaking, white water rafting, para gliding, bungy-jumping, quad bikes, mountain biking, fishing to name but a few. Where can you get all this is relatively close proximity in the UK...

I hope so otherwise I might have to resort to strong measures. Seems the NZ air gives some people brain freeze!!! :curse::curse:

What happened to common sense and priorities?? Maybe the luugage alowance meant there wasnt room for it in the suitcase
