Hi All

RIP Vaughan. He was a colleague, a friend and an all round good guy.  We will miss you.

It's the start of a new year and we are enjoying riding in the 2017 summer months. However we need to remain vigilant when we are out on the roads so we don't end up a statistic that the media is portraying our age group to be. Personally over the break I saw a very near miss and I had a very near miss. Neither caused by the motorcyclists.

I'm excited as we have a lot of great rides and events coming up this year and I'm glad to be part of North Harbour Ulysses family.  Although you only get out of it what you put in.  So take part in club meetings, social events and rides.  They are a lot of fun and you meet so many like minded people who fast become friends.

Dale & I hope every-one had a great Xmas and wish you a Happy Safe New Year.
(Next Club Night Thursday 2nd February)
Our Xmas Bash at the Squash Club went off well with 80+ members & partners enjoying this lovely spot, our thanks to Peter Unstead for supplying the music. Many of you asked for another function at the squash club in the mid-year, I thought a late June early July function with a BBQ about 8.00pm would be nice. I am getting costings, unfortunately when you use these places we have to use their caterers. I will keep you informed on progress.
         John’s New Year’s Day Ride was well supported with 47 bikes turning up some with pillions, if you haven’t done one of these rides before I can thoroughly recommend them as John knows a lot of roads you have never been on before. No! we weren’t there,  some of us enjoyed the hospitality of Paul & Niki Morrison to bring in the New Year and didn’t wake up in time. Hopefully we will have some photos of the Xmas Bash & John’s ride further on.
         The committee have asked NatCom to approve Barry Holland & John Heebink as Branch Rider Mentors, they will then be available to give you riding tips. Both John & Barry are IAM members and approved IAM observers so are well qualified to help improve your riding if required. They will not/cannot act as riding instructors. If you think you could do the IAM course contact them to see what is involved, but it would be a good idea to do a Ride Forever Silver or Gold Course before attempting the IAM.
         Don’t forget if you do a Ride Forever Course or similar to let the committee know and email a copy of your certificate to as the Branch gets a $20.00 rebate for every course completed.  
           John & Barry are also doing a RIC introduction night in February hopefully a date will be announced at club night.
         The National Raffle tickets will be on sale at club night, the proceeds from this raffle go towards Ride Forever & Rider Improvement/Training courses, tickets are always in great demand so get in early as there are only 2500 tickets available nationwide and there is a great selection of bikes as prizes. Tickets are only available to Club Members $10.00ea or $50.00 a book of 5.
Buy & Sell Table
We all have something we no longer need but could be useful to some-one else, if you have something you want to sell bring it along for the sellers table. This is an experiment to see how popular it will be.

Message from the New Zealand Police after Vaughan's Funeral

Good Morning Wayne.
Thanks for the photo’s – what a send-off !!
I’m a motorcycle rider – rain, hail & shine and I know the love & support you & the Ulysses family have shown to Vaughan & his family will be much appreciated.  
I have thanked all  of our Police staff involved, especially Pete Johnstone the traffic engineer form ATOC - Smales Farm who organised & managed the Green Wave for Vaughan’s last journey.  I appreciate your feedback. Take Care.

Wine Bottle Caps
Save your bottle tops from your wine bottles and bring along to each monthly meeting. These get passed onto Lions Club who collect as a fundraiser for Child Dialysis.  Get your local restaurant on board and have them keep the bottle tops for you.  
Andrew Leader runs the "Twists and Turns" low speed manoeuvring sessions that Ulysses set up some years ago.

They are run on the first Saturday of the month at  Kelston Girls High School, 1 Archibald Rd, Kelston, West Auckland 0602.

All North Harbour members are invited to attend. 
It’s a great opportunity to practice all those key low speed skills in a safe, supportive environment.  For instance when did you last practice an emergency stop?  Plenty of skilled riders attend to help with technique and encouragement and they are not judgemental.  Better to practice where there are people to help pick the bike up if you lay it down!
 The school entrance is first on your right as you turn off Great North Road into Archibald Road:

Motorcycle Safety Tips and Tricks

1. Gear up.

Contrary to popular belief, looking cool is not the top priority when getting on your bike. No matter how hot it is outside, shorts, a T-shirt and sandals are not proper riding attire. Even jeans provide minimal protection against injury and road rash if you happen to slide. You can go for extreme protection with leathers or reinforced jackets, pants and boots.

Glasses or goggles are a must if you have an open-faced helmet and to protect your hands, you should always wear gloves. In warm weather there is specially designed gear that is intended for ventilation and cooling. And, it should go without saying, never ride without a DOT-approved helmet. It doesn’t matter if you look silly because it will help keep you alive.

2. Stay in the comfort zone.

Know your abilities and make sure that neither your chosen route nor motorcycle is more than you can handle. Your bike should fit you; that means that your feet should be able to rest flat on the ground when seated – no tiptoes.  And if the bike feels too heavy for you, it probably is.

You want to be able to easily get on and off your motorcycle and the handlebars and controls should be easy for you to reach. The more familiar you are with your route, the easier it will be for you to focus on safety instead of not missing a turn. And if you’re riding with a group, don’t push yourself just to keep up with the pack. Always ride to your comfort level, not theirs.

3. Inspect your ride.

Give your bike a good once-over before hitting the road. Things you should check out every time you get on your motorcycle include tire pressure, mirrors and lights. Taking a quick walk around your bike will give you an idea if there are any loose bolts, leaks or other potential mechanical hazards.

You also need to be diligent about regular care and maintenance. Don’t delay fixing something that needs attention, conduct all recommended regular maintenance including oil changes, chain and suspension adjustments, and stay on top of brake pad and tire wear.

4. Use your head.

While mirrors are there for a reason, you can’t solely rely on them to remain aware of what is in your immediate riding space. To keep cognizant of your surroundings and your position in relationship to those around you, you need to use your head.

Experienced riders know that it’s important to keep your head and eyes up while rounding corners and that the safest way to change lanes is to actually turn and look over your shoulder to make sure you are clear. You will also be able to get a feeling for whether other drivers are paying attention to you.

5. Watch the road.

As a motorcyclist, you need to pay attention to the road you are riding on. Err on the side of caution when going into curves; be vigilant for potential gravel or other unstable road conditions. Be careful when crossing rail road tracks because the paint can be slippery – the same goes for the white lines at stoplights.

6. Find your happy place.

One of the biggest dangers to a rider is getting on your bike in the wrong state of mind. Riding angry, drowsy or distracted can be a recipe for disaster. Remember, when you’re on a motorcycle you are ultimately the only one on the road looking out for you. If your mind and emotions are anywhere other than the road ahead, you are susceptible to making rookie mistakes that can end in a crash, injuries or worse.

7. Know the forecast.

Weather is a regular foil to perfect driving conditions and the dangers of wet or icy roads multiply when you’re on two wheels. Not only do you have half the stability of a car, but the lack of a windshield and your body’s exposure to driving rain add to the risk.

Lack of visibility is a rider’s worst nightmare and until you’ve been caught on your bike in the rain you will never understand just how much being pelted by rain drops at 50 or even 30 miles per hour can hurt.

8. Make sure two isn’t a crowd.

Who doesn’t want to cruise around with a hottie riding on back? But you need to make sure you are comfortable with a passenger and also make sure that your passenger knows how to do their part to make sure the ride stays safe and sexy. Something safe and sweet is ensuring your passenger has the right gear.

They need a helmet, protective clothing and the right shoes. You also need to make sure they know what to do when you turn corners or need to stop. It might be a good idea to take a test run together in a safe environment like a parking lot before hitting the open road or the stop-and-go of city traffic.

9. Brake for motorcycles.

Just because you’re on a motorcycle doesn’t make it any easier for you to see other motorcycles. Always double-check when changing lanes or turning. You also need to practice braking in all sorts of conditions.

To make sure that a quick stop won’t result in tragedy, always give extra space to the vehicles in front of you and know how to stop on a dime without locking your brakes. In fact, you might want to upgrade to anti-lock brakes. According to IIHS research, having ABS brakes on your bike can reduce your chances of being in a fatal accident by 37 percent.

10. Spread the love

There’s no denying that motorcycles are often overlooked or regarded as the second-class citizens of the road. As a rider, you have the chance to help make that different. When you’re on the road, always drive as if you are an ambassador for motorcyclists everywhere.

Ride with courtesy, care and awareness that you are representing motorcycles for those around you. Don’t let an urge to prove a point or retaliate against an inconsiderate driver overwhelm your better judgment – after all, that takes away all the joy, which is why you’re riding in the first place.

When all is said and done it boils down to this: wear your gear, know your bike and know your abilities. You can’t control your environment but you can control how you react to it. What other tips do you have to stay safe and sane on two wheels?

A Message regarding Accommodation for the National Rally in Masterton over Easter 2017

Hello fellow Ulyssians,
The 2017 National Rally is being held in Masterton, Wairarapa over the Easter weekend.
Local motel accommodation is at a premium at this time so members wishing to attend the rally should book now

* Most on line booking sites will indicate the Motels are full over this period.

* Members should Ring the Motels direct and indicate you are from the Ulysses Club as most (not all) motels are holding rooms for us.

There are a number of conflicting events now being held in Masterton over the Easter Weekend so accommodation is filling fast in Masterton and the the surrounding areas.

Remember - You can always cancel a booking but you can't always make one! ----------- Don't miss out!  :-)
