About 30 topless women cycled down Queen St. Many of the 100,000 spectators told reporters that they were there "to see the motorcycles."

During one hearing Mr. Crow told the court "They’re breasts and New Zealand law says that women can have their breasts out in public or be bare-chested just like a man."
