Rangiriri Debrief, which departed AHD on June 12th at midday. Well, my maiden ride as a new RC is done and dusted, and what a start!

An awesome winter day full of sunshine and 29 bikes ready to ride. Thanks to Tony for doing an outstanding job at TEC. We had a small mishap in that a couple of riders left the pack to follow a 'ghost rider' on a Harley who was doing his or her own thing.

We headed south up highway one turning off at Drury then into the Ramarama turnoff before heading toward Ararimu and up to Bombay where we regrouped. Then it was onto Tuakau where we crossed the mighty Waikato river and headed for Pukekawa. It was great riding as there was very little traffic so a steady pace could be set.

We then turned right and headed towards Glen Murray and Rangiriri with some great scenery along the way, including the river which looked an absolute picture.

On arrival at Rangiriri, we were very well hosted by the staff where we enjoyed lunch in the garden bar. If you didn't know it you would be thinking that it was a warm spring day and not the beginning of winter!

No major incidents to report, with no one coming to grief.

Thanks to all concerned for a great day, a great ride, and some excellent company

From The Director

Hi everyone,

Thanks to everyone who came to our 30th Anniversary celebrations last Saturday night, we had a great time, so good to see both Dealer Principals, Three past Directors, our Regional Director and members new and old. 

The entertainment we chose 'The Vibro Kings' band was awesome and played right through to the end of the night, with a great mix of covers that were familiar to everyone, and had the dance floor busy most of the time.

Special thanks to Diva (Helen Medlyn) for donating a hard-cover book 'The History Of Harley Davidson' which we raffled on the night and are happy to have raised over $300 for MDN, well-done Diva!

As we move further into winter the weather may affect our rides so keep an eye on Member Jungle and the Text message for any cancellations, our usual Saturday ride is leaving North Auckland HD store at 12 noon, and on Sunday Greg will be leading our Hard Arse, Shortest Day-Longest ride, departing BP South at 7.30 am, over 700kms of fun.
Look out for the notifications for the next three months of Chapter night meetings, some specials coming up for you all.
Take care out there, the traffic and weather conspire against us at times, Ride and Have Fun!

Note from the MO re: Social Media Images.

As a number of you know, I take a lot of cell phone "pics" which I post on our HOG Facebook page, in our HOG Midweek News, on the NZSR Facebook page, and on my own Facebook page. It has come to light that some members may not wish to have their image posted on social media. Therefore I am inviting members to email me, text me or talk to me if they would prefer that I do not post images of them, I will then endevour to not take images of you and or edit you out of the image and ask you for permission before I take images, or I could kindly tell you to move out of the way. Of course, we have other members who take images and post to social media and I can then pass your name on to them to do the same.

Note: Chapter Nights. The meat pack raffle is back along with items and packages from both shops. If you have items you would like to donate and contribute to Chapter raffles please contact the Director before Chapter nights.

Cheers the MO
