Waihi Beach RSA Ride Debrief from HRC Deano

Hi all

Leaving home on my way to BP South I looked north & noticed rain clouds. It crossed my mind that some of our north members were going to get wet before the ride even started. Blue skies south, all good for me.
21 bikes & 2 pillions left BP south & exited the motorway at Ramarama. Passing through Mangatawhiri, Miranda & stopping off at the Kopu Hotel car park. There we met members from the Waikato Chapter. After a quick chat with their director Deane & another quick briefing and with approximately 37 bikes plus pillions, we headed off over the Kopu-Hikuai hill where we encountered our first lot of rain. By the time we got to the Whangamata Wharf most of us had dried out. A short stop there then off we rode to the Waihi Beach RSA taking a left through the Golden Valley.
The RSA was busy but they had enough room for all of us Hogs. 
The company was great, good to meet riders from another chapter & talk about how they do things.
Thanks to Dale for being TEC & thanks to all that came along for the ride.
Cheers Deano.

Chapter Night Report from the Director
Hi everyone,
Well, it was so good catching up with you all at Chapter Night on Monday, it was a very successful night with attendees all enjoying the first beverage for free, courtesy of the Chapter, a great turnout of members meant the tables were full and the chatter nice to hear again.
Ray reported that the quality of build of the new machines arriving from Thailand has been very good, paint quality and assembly to a very high standard, the stores are slowly getting stock of new models and demo bikes are available at both stores, give them a call to see what is available.
We are lucky to have new Sheriffs in town, yes two of them, Tim and Fran hit the ground running and the welfare coffers got a tidy increase, be aware folks, be aware!!
We then had the pleasure of Paul Pavletich as guest speaker, Paul was very keen to talk about his exploits on the track, where he was very successful, winning a number of NZ championships and still competing successfully now, he bought along his very nice F1 Yamaha track bike, originally a 750 but now with a 1000cc fitted in, it's great to see these older machines being raced still, doing what they are best at, going fast. After talking about his bike he moved into the Motorcycle safety programmes he is currently involved in, specifically the Ride Forever programme and he encouraged all of us to complete the courses if only to brush up on how we ride and there's always the opportunity to learn something new. He also pointed out some facts surrounding motorcycle accidents and deaths, at the moment just over 1 a week of us are dying on our roads, very sobering. He also invited us to come visit his collection of some 30 odd bikes, something we will organise as soon as we can. Thanks very much Paul.
Don't forget we have the NZ Motorcycle show coming up 14/15th May, please let me know if you can help out on the stand or if you would like to display your fine machine, call me 0273828343
Next important event is our AGM being held at Akarana Golf Club 23rd May, come along and support your Chapter.
Ride and Have Fun
