    Sad day Gary is a good guy that did a lot for bikes. It also leaves Tony Quinn owning all the upper north Island tracks. Pretty bad situation for the trackday and club racers. ...

      Two Helmets/Boots/Leather Jacket/Gloves/125 discount vouchers up to 20%, could even be an extra 100 added depending on the turnout. So everyone stands a real good chance of picking up something.
      Every badge purchase and or paid membership goes into the draw.
      Draw will be done by Andrew Stroud.
      Who is Andrew Stroud ? Does he ride bikes ?

      Many THANKS Virago, this is something that all MAG-NZ members and future supporters should be aware of.We have had help getting this Launch day off the ground.
      In the first instance KB has assisted us imeasurably with front page coverage and by helping us reach all of Kb's many and varied motorcyclists.
      Now we have other organisations assisting us and not just for the next five minutes.
      So come one, come all, have a bit of fun, hear what we are going to be about and how YOU can help MAG-NZ to gow and become a force to be reckoned with.

      well done mom & maha, great day at the launch,
      however i think kb has changed some what, i must explain, kb used to be a great place to meet people on line as well as at events, i can now understand why new kbers say that they find it hard to meet more kbrs.
      i went to shell west gate to meet up with kbrs to head to the mag launch, i aproched a group of people & asked if they were kbrs at all, yip was all i got,??
      no introductions at all, no attempt to even introduce them selves or any of the other group, so my question is, has kb realy changed or is it just a certain group of kbrs that like keep thems selves secret??

      It's that way in all groups....people are wary, lack of confidence, who's this stranger, lack of trust, personal issues. In some it's just plain rudeness.

      Whatever it is, it is rather off putting.

      Have we met?.............

      I know what you're saying and it's a common issue in Palmy. Fortunately, the Manawatu KB crew are bloody awesome and very friendly toward strangers.

      Had My ID written all over me. Had my KB ACC T-Shirt with RiderInBlack in big letters on the front So if anyone from KB didn't say hi ta me, then that was their problem.
      Well done team MAG-NZ. Now let's see what happens from here.

      They certainly are, even though Palmy was voted the most dull place to live in NZ!
      Now, I was born in Palmy and lived there till I was 14 and being back there a few times over the last couple of years, I for one like the place, would I move back there to live? naaaaa, the locals couldn't handle that. But if you're a biker, the social scene is the best you could possibly find to be honest, in fact, you could say they are all psuedo Honda riders...

      Quite simple. Dont wait for others to do it. To make friends you need to be friendly. Make the effort, get stuck in, be involved and organise rides etc. Those that matter are those that respond in kind. Those that don't... don't matter.

      Some people (like me) are very shy and it can come across as rudeness.... I said hi to Mom and got a hug! I met Antonio as well but he knew who I was by my pink jacket. Otherwise I felt shy but that was my fault for not putting myself out there
