Hi out there in the www. Another busy week, been in Wellington at the latest MNZ board meeting which was an eye opener. I have to say the entire issue of health and safety is really a massive issue, and if we aren't careful well we might just be in a bit of bother over the next few years as they march steadfastly into wrapping us all up in cotton wool. I used to be one of those people who thought out loud about all this supposed 'crap', but when you get into it, it really does effect a whole lot of people and in some instances quite badly. The on going effect of that is more restrictions and more safety. And further down the track a long and laborious path to litigation and law suits as people ultimately want their pound of flesh. The way I see it is that people will bitch and moan about entry fees and ever new rules that seem on the surface to be bloody farcical and to cost a fortune, but the moment that something goes wrong it's these very same people who will jump on the band wagon and say that this never should have happened or they should have done more to avoid instances like that, and how piss poor the running of those events were. But it's the back ground work by all the volunteers,the organisations and the race clubs that goes into running an event that costs a shit load. believe me when I say that in future it will only get more expensive and it will be run a whole lot tighter, because if it doesn't, our sport will be legislated out of existence. This is the last thing we want. So with out any more blah blah lets get on with what is happening in the world of customisation, riding and racing. Enjoy please, and don't be afraid to share this little weekly missive with your mates.
Well another week has gone by, Japan buying trip is coming up very soon. Quite excited by that prospect, have to go and get my check ups done to make sure that I can travel, but that's ok. Anyways enjoy your selves out there ride hard and enjoy the time you have, because you just don;t know when you won't have the time.;
