MNZ have researched camera use on helmets and as per the FIM and all other NZ motorsports, you can no longer use a camera fixed to your helmet because the camera/mount creates an impact point which compromises the helmet’s design.
For the purposes of clarification the rule regarding Helmets and the use of Camera’s now reads:
No Helmet Cameras or other accessories can be attached to the rider’s helmet.

Rule 6.2a - Off Road & Road
Now includes suspected concussion. If there is a suspected concussion you have an automatic stand down of 21 days unless you supply a medical clearance stating you were not concussed and are fit to compete in motorcycle competition.  The medical clearance must be from a doctor, surgeon or specialist.

Rule 8.1b Safety Gear – Road
Your back protector has to be a certified back protector of composite material which must be worn at all times.  The standard for chest, shoulder and back protectors is EN1621.
Chest Protectors will be compulsory from 1 Jan 2018.

Rule 8.2a – Off Road & Road
The helmet standards have been updated so check your helmet meets them.  Also note some helmets are being phased out and the date they are valid to is in the rules.

The updated copy of the MoMS is available Click HERE (Off-road)

Local Forest Permit Riding...

To Forest permit holders and Riders,
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 so are not available 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 work 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. 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. KEEP LEFT!
We will update you whenever more news is available.
Security checks and camera use 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.
