NEW RULES FROM MNZ FROM 1 AUG
Please carefully check the list of rule changes here effective from 1 August 2016:
NO MORE HELMET MOUNTED CAMERAS:
After researching camera use on helmets and following the FIM lead and all other NZ motorsports, you can no longer use a camera fixed to your helmet as the camera/mount creates an impact point which compromises the helmet’s design.
*You can still use your camera securely mounted to the motorcycle and the camera mounts are subject to approval by the Machine Examiner.
We will continue to monitor all information and testing on helmets, and if there are any changes you will be advised accordingly.

Local Forest Permit Riding
Moutere FOREST OPEN
Hira and Wairoa FOREST CLOSED
Update on forest closures 1 July
HIRA LOGGING CLOSURES
Dear Forest permit holder,
Hancock Forest Management will be starting harvest operations in Hira and Groom Creek areas from the 1st of August 2016 and operations are expected to continue until the end of November.
As we have night and early round trucking, the forest will only be open from 06:00 Saturday until Midnight Sunday.
This is to protect the safety of permit holders and the sanity of crews working in the areas.
Additional areas may be closed due to the hazard of trees and rocks falling downhill from the operational areas.
The following areas will be affected;
Sharlands Rd, Central Rd, Maitai Face, Groom Creek, Fireball Road.
The following Mountain Bike trails will be closed for the duration of the weekend are not available. (They are not available at weekends due to the risk of injury from loose material falling on the trail).
Maitai Face Trails, Turners, Lollipop, TMTYL, Top Dog, Hot Box, and Smasher.
There will be no access into the forest from Codgers/Atmore bowl, Maitai valley trail golf course section.
Some weekend working may be required and the forest will be closed during these times. Additional signage will be displayed if this occurs.
Please read and obey all signage as this is in place for your safety. Non-compliance will result in suspension of your permit once the forest re-opens and may result in trespass notices being issued.
Thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
On Behalf of Hancock Forest Management
Currently the only forest open to motorcycle rider permit holders is the Moutere Forest. AFM advise the reopening of Hira is imminent BUT held off due to staffing changes and number of ILLEGAL RIDERS ON CAMERA THAT MAY STOP ALL FOREST ACCESS
With riding concentrated here, make sure you ride carefully and abide by the rules of forest use - do not enter the forests without a valid permit, and do not enter the closed forests. Do not cut trees and do not paint trees!
Please bear with us and we will update you as soon as we have some more news to provide.
Security checks have been increased.
Carry your fire extinguishers, clear headers and check spark arrestors before going out plus display your Vehicle Dashboard Card and put your Permit Tag on your bike. Be polite when you are stopped and please promote this riding scheme to other users as this will help us keep our access.
If you need to get or renew your AFM permit Jannine is available in Stoke by appointment. Pay the $60 permit fee online with memberships and have your completed Bike Check and Permit application forms. Txt 027 439 1740 for appointment.
