Know any characters? And by character I don’t just mean the odd eccentric. I mean full-blown Barry Crump/Burt Munro types. I’ve been thinking about this on and off for the past couple of days and have come to the same conclusion as – I imagine – you have. These days they are few and far between. I was prompted to muse on the nature of character as it applies to the local motorcycle scene when, in a conversation with a young fellow new to bikes and biking, I mentioned the late Max Corkill and his riding companion Rastus the cat. Who you might remember me writing about in my Feb ‘13 First Word. I assumed that everyone knew about Max, and the plucky little black cat he called Rastus, who covered thousands of kilometres together before tragically being hit and killed by – I believe – a drunk driver on January 20 1998. MAX ‘N RASTUS In fact, if, like my young mate, the Max ‘n Rastus story is new to you, you can check it out at www.petsonthenet. co.nz/maxandrastus.htm. Max never really sought publicity, but he was gracious with his time when reporters – naturally – wanted to tell the world (literally) about his feline riding companion. Which brings me back to my musings on what actually makes a true ‘character.’ Sure, there are any number of modernday pitchmen trying to entertain/make us buy things on TV these days. But that’s not really the same thing is it? Nor is the sort of formula-following playing-to-type that a lot of so-called artists – and art industry PR-types no doubt – do to keep their names in the public eye. What I’m talking about is true ‘star’ (for want of a better word) quality. A quality which transcends time, place,

age, ethnic background and gender and which comes neither quickly nor conveniently packaged. Character can have something to do with sport – in our case a good example would be a wise-cracking Graeme Crosby – but it takes more than talent for you to earn your stake as a national treasure like Burt Munro or Max ‘n Rastus. In much the same way, a career in politics – even at the highest level – is no guarantee of a place in the pantheon of the fondly remembered. Nor, and probably for the same reason, is success in business. Though, and again I’m talking exclusively about our own little sphere here, Gareth Morgan could well end up the exception that proves that particular rule. SUCCESS IS RELATIVE Arguably the most interesting thing about the process by which character is earned is that success is relative. Had he played the game differently, Burt Munro might well have earned more Land Speed Records. And had he chosen a more conventional path John Britten could have ended up a respected race engineer with Honda, Ducati or whoever. Yet isn’t the way the two fiercely independent individuals went about their business – for better or for worse – one of the main reasons they are so revered here? Why, if you were to put a list of motorcycle-building/riding Kiwi characters together, the pair would be fighting for a place at the top of the list? This, of course is only my opinion. By all means disagree. Even better, come up with your own Kiwi motorcycle character candidates – and reasons why you think they deserve to be so classified – and e-mail them through to me at firstname.lastname@example.org This could be the beginning of quite an interesting conversation! ■

Taking the bike on an overseas tour, or buying or selling overseas? Want someone who knows bikes and knows how they should be handled?
Then call us-we have years of experience and good reviews from riders touring USA, Australia, Canada, Europe & UK. We can arrange freighting, all customs facilities, holding of crates and shipment of bikes and goods purchased on tour back to New Zealand. We have offices & customs teams throughout USA, Australia, Europe and agencies in Canada and UK. Two years ago we had a family tragedy and had to get back to New Zealand immediately. We were in the back blocks of Colorado. One phone call to Mainfreight in LA and they just sorted everything out. They picked our bikes up from Colorado, sorted out all of the details and shipped the bikes home to us... Bridget Jakicevich Another successful trip to the States for my group and a large part played by yourself and Mainfreight. Looking back has been 8 years now, you have been involved... With out your help I know that it could otherwise be very stressful with much unnecessary time dealing with the minutia to the various agencies involved both in New Zealand and The US....
