    Time for major work, unfortunately. Frame's cracked :( Motor is making oil disappear and power isn't what it used to be either, according to seat of pants dyno. Time for the winter layup, get in, strip it, sort out various issues that have been waiting for a while. Step 1: take it to bits.

    LEAVE TIME: 10:30am from Dairy Flat BP on the Northern Motorway.
    ARRIVAL TIME: 11:30 am at the Muddy Waters Tavern in Mercer
    DONATION: $10 per Bike

    With tributes and support coming in from around the world, now is the time to show how much we care about our own.
    There are thousands of Kiwis in Christchurch that need assistance now more than ever.
    A cash donation from bikers in the North Island will indeed help some of those who are going through desperate times.
    All we are asking for is a $10 donation from each Bike.
    Donations to made on the day but if you cant make it or would prefer, a bank account number is avaliable below.
    The Appeal funds collected will be forwarded to the Salvation Army Earthquake appeal.

    In true Kiwibiker tradition, we urge bikers from the Waikato/BOP/ King Country and everywhere in between and beyond to get in and show your support and generosity for those devastated by the Christchurch Earthquake.

    :Fatt Max will donate a couple of 'Blooze Yeah' albums as spot prizes.

    :Bank account for donations if you cant attend the ride - Use CHCH Quake as the reference please and add you online name.

      The TV is often announcing charity events for CHCH. Have you guys talked to the TV channels to get them to announce this one?

      That will be happening, Anne has an extensive media contacts list. There are offers coming in on a daily bases. A stunt rider offered a show for free on the day, I declinded that offer for now. I want to keep this simple as possible. There could room for such and event at another time though.
      I am going to use Kiwibiker as a major supporter for this event ok?

      Maha - I think now this is becoming national we (Kiwirider) should just give a cash donation instead. Seems better taste? Good idea when it was needing a boost.

      Delete it from the banner if you agree - leave it and it will be honoured.

      Cash is good Dave thank you...I was trying to keep away from the time incured with raffles/spot prizes, though would have greatfully accepted the KR offer.
      So ok, I will delete it from the banner and add KR as a supporter.

      Bikers Ride to suport Quake Victims.

      Bikers Unite for Quake Appeal.

      Motorcyclists Unite for Quake Appeal. *Meh*

      Bikers ride in support of people affected by the Christchurch Earth Quake.

      Motorcyclists ride in support of people affected by the Christchurch Earth Quake.

      Perhaps the Media could run with this...

      Motorcyclists ride in support of people affected by the Christchurch Earth Quake.

      Either way, I am not bothered. What matters to me the most is that the turn out is overwhelming and that we can raise a shit load of money to hand over to the Sallies.

      Nothing wrong with Christchurch Quake Appeal Rides . Leave it be and lets all get behind the rides, because it is not about us, it's about Cantab needing our help. Maha if ya need help on the day give me a text on 027 4534020 OK. I don't care who's running it as long as it happens and we raise funds for the Cantabs. Their need far out ways any other issues. When these rides happen I would like us to say we did them together as NZ'ers for NZ'ers.

      Do go on.

      It's just easier to promote with a name or a headline - tag. Particularly to the 90% who aren't following on KB.

      Edit.

      Got it - 'Calling All Motorcyclists' Quake Appeal rides or

      'Calling All Riders'
      Christchurch Quake Appeal Rides.

      Maha's call anyway.

      Thank you Doug, yes I will need a hand with ride control at the front.
      I have it quite clear in my mind how the ride will pan out (speed/lane choice/where to change lanes etc) so perhaps if yourself and Kelvin/Al or whoever is coming down from the north can help with that?
      I had six ride controllers on the last one (360 bikes) but we were going through the City and needed that amount. Not so much on this ride.
