FOR those with bikes licensed
under our Club Concessional Scheme you must bring your bike out to the
Bromilow’s from 8 am onwards, Sunday, April 3.
This is a requirement by the DPI for our Club
Examiners to annually inspect all concessionally licensed bikes for
roadworthiness. After inspection you will be issued with an Inspection
Certificate and a 2011 sticker will be placed on the rear plate.
You must also be a financial member of the Club
- fees are due on April 1. The Membership Secretary will be there on
the day so you will be able to pay your fees then if you wish.
Neil, Ronnie, Robin, Antoinet and Chris are
giving up their day for your benefit and to make it easier for you, so
do the right thing and turn up.
There will also be tea/coffee and cakes and
biscuits provided for members during the day. Members without
concessionally licensed bikes are also very welcome to come out and
have a look and enjoy the social part of Inspection Day.
you are unable to turn up because of personal commitments then it is
your responsibility to get in touch with Neil (9844 6275) and make
other arrangements to get your bike out there at another time. It is
not Neil, Ronnie or Huw’s job to get in touch with you.
If you are going to be on holidays or away from
Albany for whatever reason all you have to do is ring Neil (or Huw) and
they will arrange another earlier time (before your holidays) for you
to have your bike examined.
NOTE: If you cannot take your bike out to
Elleker on the day because it is dismantled/has a wheel missing or
whatever the reason please fill in the form (12KB

Neil Bromilow, PO Box 247, Albany WA 6331.
If you live in Perth or surrounding districts
Inspection Day will also be on April 3. If it is necessary to have your
bike inspected on a different day get in touch with Huw - phone: 9279
5923 Mobile: 0439 930 368 and arrange a time to have your bike checked
that is convenient for him.
Don’t forget that if you do not have your bike
inspected prior to June, then it will be de-listed and the authorities
notified of this, you will need to have your bike checked at a DPI
station and fully registered to avoid fines and demerits if you do not
do so and are caught riding your bike illegally - sounds expensive.
NOTE: ALL BIKES TO BE INSPECTED ON INSPECTION DAY EVEN IF IT WAS NEWLY LICENSED A MONTH BEFORE.
NOTE: When you bike is repaired and ready to
ride you must have it inspected and passed as well as a sticker
attached before you use it. This information also goes to the DPI in
Perth with Neil’s monthly return.
The worry for Concessionally Licensed Clubs
like ours in WA is that the DPI will get fed up with Club members not
having their bikes examined on time and either (a) put the fees up,
like South Australia where annual concessional rego is around $140 per
bike or (b) do away with concessional licensing all together. It’s in
your hands so do the right thing and get your bike checked on time.
