thanks for your reply .I shall be over for 3 wk's only on a reccy as I have been offered a job, so need to check the place out, cost of living, decent women and the price of fuel...the main requirements in life.
I shall have a few days in the Picton/christchurch area, so will have a look for a cheap mount...yes I will have a honda 90 even an NSU quickly just as long as they have 1500 miles left in them.
A cheap van sounds the way to go as I won't need a tent.
Keep me posted on any ideas you have,
thanks, John F Nottingham.
