Rally / riding season officially open!

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.

Michael Davies: Late January 2011 rally North of Auckland

Kevin and I are working on the idea of a rally at THE FARM ( www.thefarm.co.nz) in one of the last two weekends of January, the last weekend being anniversary weekend.
It is a 1000 acre farm in Whangaruru South of Bay of Islands on the old Russell Road, great road for touring and plenty of distractions, such as dirt bikes and beaches etc..
This will be an event where family and children are encouraged (all ages), so encourage partners and children, they will love it.
We hosted a rally there 2005/06 cant remember which year, various accommodation options ranging from tenting, cottages and converted wood shed into dorm etc..
Feed back on dates would be appreciated, but we are assuming school holidays,
