An Indian in town


Kia ora

Wyndham is playing host to a day of motorbike racing today, 29 November, the Burt Munro Memorial Weekend has been held in Invercargill and Wyndham over the last few days and today is Wyndham's turn. The day began as quite a miserable looking one and has ended quite sunny and, although windy, quite a pleasant day after all.

Above photograph shows the Indian motorbike Burt Munro re-built, and rode. It was standing in a space off an area used as the pit.

  1. Is that the original motorbike? Wow! :) Ever since I watched the movie "The World's Fastest Indian" and thus learned about Burt Munro, I have been fascinated by his life story -- and normally I am not really into motorbikes at all. The film is fantastic -- if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and watch it soon. It makes you feel good -- very uplifting. Anyway, I would have LOVED to see all the action in Wyndham, so thanks so much for sharing this awesome photo (lovely design as always). You rock, Jeni!!! :)

    Big hugs,
    Birgit
