Here's a note just in from Moto NZ.
Hey guys,

By now you will have recieved our press release announcing MOTO NZ, and hopefully you have had a chance to check out our website

And now we are moving really quickly onto our first initiative and we would like to give you a bit of a heads up, and invite you to come along to be part of it all.   MOTO NZ is working with the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) on an initiative to improve safety for motorcyclists on New Zealand roadways.

MOTO NZ’s involvement starts with a large-scale ‘rider assessment’ of the roads in question, scheduled for 9th-15th May. It will take various forms, including a series of ‘passes’ by an expert rider hooked up to video and audio. This will be supplemented by a ‘ride the Coromandel loop’ event on 15th of May, expected to involve over 100 riders.

We are asking riders to ride the loop at their leisure, and give us their feedback either on the day 15 May 2011, at the Thames Racecourse, or via our  The Council members will be at the Thames Racecourse from 11.00 am to 3.30 pm.

We are expecting to see at least 100 riders ride the loop, and it would be great to see you there.

Paul Searancke
Deputy Chairperson
Motorcycle Safety Advisory Council
