The NZCSC 11th Rally at Labour Weekend has kicked off the summer riding and rally season in earnest.
After a tough and stressful winter for a lot of us, a relaxing holiday weekend in Taranaki seems like heaven. Quite a few breakdowns though, particularly for the Wellington crew – it may be time to consider AA memberships for those going on tour – they have a premium membership option to get you and your scooter all the way back to your hometown, not just the nearest AA agent – a good option if you cannot fix it yourself and a van/trailer/truck isn’t readily available.
Some rallies and rides have already been discussed over the weekend. This is the first with enough detail to post.
