You know summers not to far away when the forth coming weekends in your calendar are full of motorcycle events. The first one out of the blocks at Labour Weekend is the Barry Sheene Oceania Challenge at Hampton Downs. This is fast becoming one of the biggest motorcycle events on the calendar and its great to see Alan De Lautour heading up with his RG500 for a spin around the track and a few of the other lads heading up as spectators on a variety of bikes. Fingers crossed for no rain this year.More information here
The following weekend 1st - 3rd November sees the Manawatu Classic Motorcycle Club hold its biennial rally at Camp Rangi Woods up the Pohangina Valley. This is always a great event and the lads run an excellent program starting on the Friday through to the Sunday. You can download an entry form here.
Its going to be very difficult for those of us who are of the Japanese Motorcycle persuasion as just up the road the VJMC have the annual Gumboot Rally on in Taihape. The lads from Hawkes Bay organise this and everyone has a great time. You get to see all sorts of bikes and meet some great people. More information here
