September 16, 2017 All Day

ASB Showgrounds

217 Green Lane West

2 Attendees

The 2017 show will be on the weekend of 16th and 17th September, again at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane Auckland.

As with last year Adventure Riding NZ will have a stand there to promote Adventure Riding in New Zealand.

As with last year we’ll need 4-5 bikes to display on the stand, with my DR being one of them, and some help manning the stand over the 2 days, even if you can only do a couple of hours it all helps. Last year the stand was constantly busy talking to people interested in adventure riding.

Free bike parking again this year … right outside the main pavilion … 1200 bikes in the carpark over the lunch hour last year … a show all in itself!

Adults $20, Kids (5-13) $5, Family (2 Adults, 2 Kids) $40

Ride Forever are again the Prime Sponsors of the show and will be offering great tips and give aways on courses to improve your riding. Look out for a feature on the popular Coromandel Loop run by the good people from Safer Roads.

100,000 square feet of indoor display space this year up from 80,000 in 2016. All tye major manufacturers are back plus a few new ones … new models and latest releases on display.

    Hi,
    I think I can be there both days, together with my motorcycle if needed.
    Also, if nothing dramatic happens, a 32″ screen which can play MP4 and AVI files in a loop from a USB HDD or stick.
    Give me a nudge when the date is closer and the real planning starts.

    So best get on organising this, it slipped down the list due to lots of other stuff happening.

    We had 4 bikes on the stand last year and that worked well so I’m keen for the same this time around.

    My DR650 is bike number one
    Joao (@jonibarteam) offered his sorted 690 and I’m very keen to have that there presuming he hasn’t sold it before then, @mark-claasen‘s KTM 950 was on the stand last year and he sold it there so maybe we can sell a trick 690 this year 😉

    Any thoughts on what the other bikes should be or whether it matters? along with offers of bikes from the ADVNZ management team @aaron_martin has offered his Africa Twin which might catch a few eyes.

    Andrew, (@enduro0627) we had a 40″ TV there last year playing adv videos off a laptop and we were planning to do the same this year.

    Great Stuff, yes I’ll old off on selling the bike before the event.
    Also I have lot’s of adventure videos that you can take a look over at youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKVfAWF2l-bs-I-Pe3R1o4g

    I’ll see if I can make a montage that we could be looping over at the screen so if anyone has suggestions point me in the right direction.

    Hi Eddie,
    Do you need help with the set-up on Friday?
    I can clear the second half of the day (after 1pm) and be there.
    How it is going with getting a crew for the stand? I can be there both days if needed.
    Also if you need a black motorcycle to achieve a good color balance, I can bring my KLR.
    Any nick-necks needed? (rope, cable tie, duct-tape, nails, hammer, extension power lead, etc.)
    Do you want to print something leaflets, info sheet or such?

    Hi everyone,
    I was thinking about starting a project for the Motorcycle Show.
    Asking for pictures related to NZ adventure riding, print it and paste over a large size NZ map as background.
    We could use it as decoration for the stand.
    If Eddie (and the community) approves:
    -Pictures can be sent to me (1 or 2 per sender to display diversity and not someone’s photo album).
    -I can get the printing done.
    -Get a map.
    -Put it together.
    -Bring it to the Motorcycle Show.

    What I would need help with is to spread the word (forums, FB, whatever) to have a loads of photos to put over the map. I can also put the “call for pictures” message together if the project is a go.

    Hi guys, I’m also available to help out, I’ve also got a AfricaTwin that I can have on the stand.

    Give us a shout if you need.

    @enduro0627 the pictures project sounds great!

    @sushibar is that a new or old AT?

    I had my panniers fitted and a tent bungied across the back of the DR last year and it got a lot of attention. I was going to do the same this year.

    Due to moving and having to get rid of a whole pile of stuff over the last month we no longer have a TV to use on the stand. @enduro0627 has offered a 32″ tv to use, does anyone have anything bigger?
    @jonibarteam Last year we had a laptop connected to the TV and a bunch of videos in a local folder that media player cycled through. We used the laptop and media player as the TV we had was older and wouldn’t play a lot of the video formats natively.

    Any assistance setting up on the Friday evening and over the course of the weekend would be appreciated. Most likely we won’t get to the venue until 5pm on Friday night which is the same as last year and set up took 2-3 hours. The bikes have to be checked in for security which can take a little while if there is a queue.

    I’m happy to arrange the laptop, setup and connect to TV.
    I’m not sure if I can make it on the Friday but I’ll keep you all posted.
