      Oh I never thought of getting some of that fabric, it would be water proof too

      Big question here though. Do we have the logo on the front of the shirt or the back. I am going front.

      Cool - I'm in for a t-shirt. I'll go front printed as well. My "Easy Target" t-shirt is printed on the back, which is no use when I wear it under my jacket!

      Yeah, I am thinking front for me too, my thinking is we are coming into winter and we wont be standing around in t-shirts for much longer. We will be wearing jackets and only the fronts on t-shirts will be visable. I want to get another fluro jacket done too

      Imagine that. I am actually opposed to the wearing of fluro on a bike and here I am wanting a second one

      My partner and I will be there.

      Would Fatt Max or Phantasm please confirm which BP on Ti Rakau Drive - the one on the corner of Chapel Rd or the one on the corner of Harris Road?

      May be interested in a t-shirt transfer - could put it on the front of my original ACC protect T-shirt.

      Cheers
      Luce.

      There may be a time change in light of the Greenpeace March up Queen Street on the same day.

      Sorry mate,

      Its the BP on the corner of Ti Rakau and Harris Road, just up from Heading Home and that curry house that made my arse look like a Japanese flag the next day after a chook vindy.....

      Ha! bloody ha. Hows the A R S E there me ol mate?
      Yes pelase mom put me down for one of those wonderful Logo jobies.
      Time change is no big deal.
      Lets go people, this is the first of many scheduled ( yes I said scheduled as in already planned and in the pipeline) for this year.
      Nick and his boss are going ahead, yes, but we don't have to roll over and take it lying down do we?
      So lets get as many of us , our friends , their freinds and anyone else who rides anything with two wheels and a motor to rock up and ride with us to show the Govt that the Bikers are not going away and will continue to protest thier disfavour of their Govt's handling of our ACC.
      Allowing for time changes my group will be riding from the BP autobahn Papakura off the southern motorway just past the Papakura off ramp, naturally thats heading South.
      We plan to leave at the appointed time , to ride down to the Drury off ramp, to circle under the motorway and head north, using only the slow lane and sticking to an approximate speed of 70 K's per hour all the way into town.
      We will have one or two people who will look out for the riders and endeavour to keep cars from entering our group.
      We want as big a group of riders as we can get, travelling at a safe speed and distance from one an other taking up a single lane and travelling as a block, No cars!
      Getting off at Kyhber Pass, turning right into Khyber pass road, then left into Park road and up and over into the domain to meet up with the other groups heading in from all points of the compass.

      Hence the ride name . ACC Ride = Auckland City Compass ride.

      So please go and tell eveyone you know, lets get lots or bikes and riders to this ride and have a bit of fun on the way to the Domain.Where we will hear from the inimitable Mom, Fatt Max. I beleive, The Rape Crisis group and one or two others.
      Be prepared to go from there again en mass to points mentioned as above for lunch and a park up.

      No law breaking just good old fashioned safe riding and getting a message to the people of Auckland and the Govt.

      "No Way
      Nick"

      Chhers and lets be having you.

      Weather permitting I will be shouldering the geetar, otherwise I am happy to speak if anyone wants to write something for me.

      I did the 100km Trailwalk at the weekend which proved to me that when you have a common goal and a common belief, you can achieve anything. This is how I see our protest and our actions, a belief and a goal...

      So lets have it, as Rick Barker said in Wellington in Feb, he's never known a biker to back down. As we say in the UK, No Surrender...!!!

      Nothing stopping us from making a shit load of noise while we are riding around the place though eh Remebering the last ride we did up Queen Street, even plod was grinning at the uproar we were making. This time we will have 4 wheeled back guard contributing a little bit of their own noise

    Rego on hold

    Thread Starter: Harry up

    Gudday, I'm lucky enough to be headed over seas for 3 months (moto GP in Germany is part of this trip:devil2:) and want to "hold" the rego on my bike. Please correct me if i'm wrong but it looks like it's sewn up so that I can't do anything until the current rego runs out?? How is that fair, I...
