Jesus, what an action packed week I've just had. Got myself voted to the board of the Motorcycle new Zealand organisation. I have done this because I have been concerned ( along with my supporters), about the state of racing in this country. It was time for me to put my hand up and get in behind MNZ in an attempt to help them in anyway that I can to try and improve our lot down here in NZ. So the only way to effect change is from the inside and it is now my intentions to try in anyway possible to make some changes for the betterment of the sport. I'm always amazed when I see pictures of myself as to how bloody old I look now and how much hair I don't have!!!!! Cracks me up really, still ride like a mad bastard, but shit i look old. Anyways so that's what happened this weekend, everything will work out I am sure. So onto other matters, this weekend at the MNZ conference Robert Holden was admitted to our hall of fame, I was asked to talk a little about my very brief time with Robert ( I think I was the only one there actually), so said a little piece which was very moving for me, in a way it kind of completed a circle for me. Robert Holden the last rider to win at the IOM on a Ducati, so in here you will find some images of him, plus a memorial carving I did out of respect for the guy, that now sits on his corner at the Wanganui Cemetery Circuit. The greatest little street circuit in the world.
Here are some images of Robert Holden, newly inducted into our hall of fame. Bout time I'd say.
He was the master of the streets that's for sure, and he would ride anything
