Equipment List

Here’s some good info on what you need to bring along to each of our rides:

Common Sense. Please dont leave home without it!

Good stout boots. No gumboots, jandels, slippers, snow shoes, skates or other inappropriate footwear.

A Motorcycle Helmet. We mean an approved one, not a german helmet, bicycle helmet, coal miners helmet or a bucket with a chin strap.

Suitable clothing. We mean something that will protect you from sharp sticks, .blackberry, bush lawyer, and angry officials and will not get caught in motorcycle parts. Gloves are a great idea.

A well maintained motorcycle. We mean something that goes well and will not break down miles from anywhere. It should be suitable for rugged trails, mud, steep hills, and be able to carry enough fuel to get you home after 40 or 50Kms. Hogs are not reccommended.

A Fire Extinguisher. We mean one that is still fully charged and not a beer bottle painted red or a full bladder. It is a condition of entry into the forest and every rider must have one. We will make an exception for youngsters or learners who are riding with someone who has a fire extinguisher. There will be extinguishers on sale at a very reasonable fee so if you cant bring an extinguisher then bring money.

Food and Drink. There will be some food for sale, from a selection of vendors, but make sure you bring some good high-energy food to keep you going through the day.

Cash. We mean New Zealand currency not Bahts, Rupies, Dineros, or monopoly money. We dont have eftpos or credit card facilities and view cheques with suspicion. You need to pay us before you can ride so we can pay our bills.

A pen that works….is helpful at sign on time. You might like to bring the one you stole off us last year? It would be really good if you could print the membership form off this page and have it all ready filled out when you sign on..

Good Humour. We really appreciate folk who are intent on having a good time and forgive us if we dont always get it exactly right. The hoohaa is all about your safety and we will not take shortcuts.

.We reserve the right to refuse to let you ride if you can not meet these basic requirements.
