: I said, what happened to the tread? Burt Munro
: Well, I cut it off. That's what happened to the tread, I cut it off with a carving knife, otherwise it won't be a high-speed tyre, would it?
: What's your name, young man? Mike
: McFarlane. Mike. Mike McFarlane. Burt Munro
: I knew a McFarlane. He used to sell milking machines in Timaru. You must be related to him because he was a total prick.
: I told you, if it's a time problem, the old guy's welcome to use some of my time. Mike
: It's not a time problem, it's a bike problem. Jim Moffett
: Well, I think we ought to let him run. He came all the way from New Zealand to do this. Mike
: Jim, have you had a good look at his machine? Jim Moffett
: All I know is the man's the genuine article. Mike
: Yeah, but the bike is the genuine dinosaur. Jim Moffett
: Look, we carry the cans for the decisions around here... Mike

: Yeah, sounds like we're a bunch of chickenshits, if you want my opinion.
