In spring most motorcyclists take out their bike from winter storage, wipe off the dust, rev the throttle and check the tyres, ready for the summer riding season to commence at Labour Weekend. ACC, in partnership with NZTA and regional/local council authorities would like to assist riders in getting ready for the riding season.
