The Café racer at the centre of attention belongs to Cyril Brown and has extended fins on the head among other things
which make this a very distinctive bike and a credit to its owner.

Apologies to members:

The Acknowledgement of a "Point of Order" at the 2013 AGM: That the minutes of 2013 AGM show that "a Facebook Group has been established by the Club for Members to share XS650 stories and pictures" which was not the fact.

The intention of the Club Facebook page was not established under the Clubs Constitution. Relevant apologies extended to Jamie Cahill and members. We the committee, at the time, had neglected the order of things and will endeavour to rectify at this AGM 2014.

A special note regarding the reporting of the clubs finance to Fair trading NSW 2013. The amount of our bank balance was drawn down after the end of our ‘Clubs’ official end of the year 2013. The result being that the figures reported to Fair trading (NSW) and our records show a small difference (approx. $200) which is reflected in our profit for this year compared with the actual 30/9/2013 finial figures. This was not reported to Fair trading as it was not significant enough to worry about.

Club Rego/Red plates/Conditional Plates:---------NSW getting stricter re club membership and some members have found that they are required to prove their financial standing with the "club" prior to having there permit renewed.

Daryl Hutcheon raised an issue of member detail in newsletter on website:

Apologies to any members that this has inconvenience, when it came to my knowledge via a conversation with Jamie Cahill. I have since stopped including address of members for what should have been obvious reasons.


Directors Liability Insurance has been purchased from NSW Motorcycling Alliance for the Club at a cost of $140 for part year ($200 full year). This will also at minimum cost allow us to run functions that are open to the public and give us, the "club" the relevant insurances.
