Want to send a frame to my nephew in NZ. Frame is too big for Japan Post to touch. Asked at Yamato Kuroneko and got estimated near 40,000 yen. Wondering if anyone has any cheaper ideas? Thanks KS.

Hahahhaa.... I know great aren't they, or those fully loaded earth movers with the huge metal plate that goes up behind the cabin. Caught one of those last week and flew, you can sit about 10 meters back and still draft them!

The otherwise hated dump trucks are even better. On Saturday, one of them did me the favour of rolling at 55km/h in front of me, on a kokudo. That was awesome drafting with a good work-out.
