Riderskill Silver course had five members attend the ACC subsidized course. Though most of us have done this course previously it gave us the opportunity to refresh ourselves and update our riding skills. Instructor Simon was very pleased with all of us as he would exclaim over "coms" his pleasure of our riding skills. The course took place in and about Helensville, Riverhead, SH16 and Mauku. Thank you to our Safety Officer Terry for organising these courses.
Patumahoe ride out of Mt Wellington was blessed with a brilliant warm sunny day with 25 bikes and 3 pillions heading off down the southern motorway where we exited at Hill Road, Manurewa off-ramp. After regrouping at Alfriston we had a sensational ride through the Hunua ranges, Mangatawhiri around Island Block road, out onto SH 1 and off at Mercer. We then cruised by Pukekawa, over the Waikato river, up through Tuakau and onto our destination of the Villiage Bar at Patumahoe for a well-deserved refreshment. Thanks to our RC McNeville for a great fun ride and to our TEC Hohepa90 who kept us all together.
Chapter Night had a good turnout with quite a few members making their first appearances in some time since lockdown. We had 40 members and 11 guests including Trevor and Joy from MDN. We also had an original member make his presence felt, welcome back world traveller Rosco. One guest came along to check us out and while sitting there made his mind up to join and subscribed on the spot and received his mini HOG rocker there and then, welcome Whetu. Great to see some HD staff there as well with Richard from NAHD and Neil from AND in attendance. Also announced is that our Assistant Director and family are moving on and will be leaving us to take up a new position in Tauranga, thank you Marcus for your contributions to the Chapter which have greatly been appreciated. Thank you all for attending Chapter night.
