Kia ora from "Down Under". I just spoke to your mom, Alma last week and told her I recently went to the South Island in New Zealand and was in Invercargill where Burt Munroe lived. I went to the museum there and got to sit in the "motorbike" surround used in the movie. "The Fastest Indian."





Unfortunately I could not see the original motorbike, which is housed in another museum (it was closed at the time). I also went to Oreti Beach where Burt practiced his speed trials, and it is the place where his son is involved in the annual bikerfiding races along it. I remember you and I talking about Bonneville Flats and the speed record one of your bikes made in Bonneville, ridden by a woman.

 
 

You’re mom also told me you’re full of shit and not to pay any attention to you.



I am attaching a few pictures from the museum and the trip for you to enjoy.
