Sunday the 12th of November:
Breakfast @ Hobsonville Kitchen and Ride out day – enjoy a group breakfast before heading back to where you came from. Suggesting from 10:00am (TBC)
In previous years as we had over 50% from out of town and we targeted a single motel near a base. This year due the majority of numbers in Auckland we’ve not suggested a group motel. Some suggestions below however please note I’m not endorsing these places…
- Aristotles North Shore
- Takapuna International Motor Lodge
- Albany Oak Motel
- Auckland Northshore Motels & Holiday Park
This area is great for our ride route, support services and our social plans. However, if your preference is to stay in town – please feel free.
Once again, we will be doing a limited run of good quality t-shirts to commemorate the weekend. Cost will be approx $35-45 per shirt (depending on confirmed numbers) with both men’s and woman’s and an option of long sleeve (+$5). You will need to confirm your attendance to get one, or more, of these. T-Shirt design to follow.
Apologies, this year we’ve run out of runway so we are giving everyone 2- weeks to confirm and pay for your t-shirts (please). Details, including bank account, will be emailed to you a day or so after you confirm – You can confirm your spot for the meet up here:
Don’t forget, if you’re coming to this meetup:
Please register for the weekend here.
PS: During past meet ups, many of us have made lifetime friendships that run far beyond the love of the MV Agusta brand, we hope you look forward to making more!
See you there. Viva la MV!
