 Seems cool, but won't locals in new zealand want us to GTFO?
  • + 33
 Nah. Kiwis are some of the nicest, most open people around
  • + 8
 @the-lorax: my experience exactly - a phenomenal country altogether
  • + 6
 @the-lorax: couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fortunate to travel quite a few places, and NZ was probably the most welcoming place ever. Whenever my wife and i would take about how much we liked it, all the locals would respond “just move here then!” One even offered to hook us up with an immigration lawyer friend. Ha. Can’t say I’ve experienced that many other places.
  • + 2
 @Longroadtonowhere: Kiwis and Turkish people are the most open, friendly people I've come across. Norwegians were pretty nice too. Kiwis take the cake though.

Also, I like the talking heads reference in your name
  • + 6
 I have been to around 2 dozen countries, and as an American, I can say I have never seen even a speck of hostility or disdain from anyone because I am foriegn, ever. I don't get this trope at all.
  • + 12
 You mean this isn't a comp to GTFO of NZ?

I appear to have entered in error.
  • + 3
 @conoat: I've only ever seen it in France (specifically Paris) and Tahiti, most other places I've been treated just fine. On the other hand Samoans and Canadians are some of the most lovely people I've come across to date.
  • + 2
 @NickB01: Never had trouble in either France or Tahiti. But have had issues 3 times when driving through Quebec. People just blatantly unwilling to try and understand you.

And never had trouble in any of the 20+ other countries I’ve been to.

There’s definitely a theme.
  • + 1
 @conoat: I've been to about 15 countries. I've definitely had issues, but in general, most people have been very friendly. Some places are just more naturally welcoming and friendly than others.
  • + 4
 @KiwiXC: They are a special kind of arrogant in Quebec. The touristy areas they are pretty friendly but as soon as you leave that area they can be quite rude and not willing to help. Don't ever get pulled over by the cops!

Thankfully most of them stay in Quebec...
  • + 9
 @robert89: maybe we can convince Quebec to GTFO of Canada?
  • - 1
 @conoat: Ive never had an issue with hospitality with any places ive visited, other than america where I found there was a higher percentage of arrogance than usual.
  • + 12
 Gt's were all of my first bikes, bright orange Pantera, with U-brakes in 92, LTS-1 in 96, DH-i in 2003. Ball burnished Zaskar with purple anodized Topline cranks to match the Manitou 2 forks in there somewhere, gave that bike to my dad. He still has it. I'm really glad GT is back.
  • + 10
 Tough choice indeed.

If only GT had a bike more aggressive than the Force but not quite a Fury. A mini Fury, single-crown, idler, 29"...maybe call it the "Sanction"?

 What 'short form'? I don't see anything??
  • + 1
 I didn't see the form either and unfortunately I clicked enter while scrolling down with my thumb. I guess that disqualifies me
  • + 2
 Short form = one check box, I think. I don't see anything more than that!
Some mild humor?
  • + 1
 @Motoroadies: so it's not a mobile vs computer thing ? I haven't checked on my pc yet
  • + 1
 @zede: It's showing the same PC and mobile for me
  • + 4
 Cool prize, but as my next Little Ripper is due to be born on the 25th March, I'm not too sure I'll be able to fly to the other side of the world...
  • + 34
 You're already winning
  • + 2
 Entered...but what if I win? I would choose the fury and then I would have to ride with the dudes and then I would ride it like a hack and probably hurt myself. Lol...stressing
  • + 5
 What if I already live in NZ?
  • + 3
 That is a dream prize isn't it? Time in the pits in NZ with the GT team and a bike!!!!
that's red button clicked I'm off to ride my bike
  • + 1
 When I met Martin and Wyn in La Bresse at the pits they were so much fun to be arround. The winner gets the trip of a lifetime with a sick machine on top. I am available during those dates btw! And I sure as sh** know which bike I would take. Thanks for offering this contest, GT!
  • + 3
 I'm not going to win this. Even in my dreams where everything should be possible, I would still not have the slightest chance of doing it..
  • + 0

GT please help get my working holiday get started right in NZ Big Grin I could use a new Enduro weapon
