    Default Calling out to all SUPERMOTO riders :)



    About us “the group”:
    We are not a club, not an organization and not a company
    We have neither committee nor chairman
    We are not into politics and we don’t even have a group name
    We are non profitable. No subscription & no membership fee
    We are more like a union looking after our own welfares
    We are riders, like you looking forwards to any kinds of riding events
    We evolved, because there are not enough events for us
    We evolved also because we need to unite riders from different groups
    We need to help ourselves find more events
    So, we eventually ended up coordinating our own activities
    We enjoy all kinds of events and we welcome all like minds to join us
    We are not bias to any clubs, website or event companies
    We are friends of SMSA, MSSC, web-sites, event-companies and all bike-shops
    We acknowledge their hard work and contribution towards our motor-sport scene.
    Many of us are still current registered members of both SMSA and MSSC.

    Our Objective:
    We understand that organizing races and events are hard work and not much money to be made.
    Eventually after putting in so much work, event may NOT even go on due to insufficient participants.
    It’s very disappointing for organizers.
    Current work flow
    (Their Formula = Organizer Create SUPPLY then look for DEMAND):
    Organizer will look for sponsors, then look for venue and coordinate everything else
    THEN finally they will wait for riders to come forward.

    In our view, we dream of a different approach.
    We feel that RIDERS are actually the MOST IMPORTANT part of the equation.
    Why do we come last in the formula?
    Therefore, we proposed a change in work flow:
    (New= we will now create DEMAND first, then SUPPLY will follow)

    We are forming up as a self supported riders group. No subscription, no membership.
    Just like a family looking after welfare of our other family member.
    We will hold a database of the contacts of all willing riders.
    We will coordinate with all the READY-TO-GO riders before we approach Clubs and association to ask for a place to ride.

    The logic as to why this approach should work:
    There is no reason why event organizer/club/association should reject us if we have a pool of 50+s ready-to-go riders.
    In addition to that, with the amount of supportive riders we have,
    we now have the bargaining power to decide how much we want to pay for
    each events without letting the organizer lose their interest.

    Our Finance:
    At every event, we will spell out all expenditures
    We will try to keep the cost of riding/racing low.
    At the end of the event, If we lose money, We’ll find sponsors to top it up.
    If we have remaining money, it will be donated to charities.
    We aim to use the entire funds collected at EACH event.
    We will NOT keep any money to bring forward to next event.
    Keep the finance portion CLEAN

    Our Events:
    All coordinators and helper are riders too.
    We have no pay and no agenda.
    Our only objective is to RIDE
    We have ideas of how we can make an event fun
    But, you are riders too ? You have ideas?
    Bring it on so your idea can benefit all of us as a group.
    We have NO rules and regulations to follow.
    Let us know what you want, and we’ll TRY to make it happen!
    THE ONLY RULE WE HAVE: SAFETY COMES FIRST!
    Nothing else is more important




    Please give us your support

    Regards,
    Robin Lim (On behalf of the “group”)

    sorry ah .. but who decides the charities that receives? No intention on poking fire but better be safe than sorry ... coz it can get messy when some parties start questioning on collection of monies and who to receive. All collection of public monies needs permit so .. thats why I say it can get messy. You do not want to have another err .. NKF saga .. wait someone say you got gold spark plug ..

    No offence. Please ignore this 2 cents worth if you feel its not worth the thought.

    the organisers themselves decide on the selection of the charity ... the organisers are different each and everytime ... if you got question ... ask the organiser himself ... and please ask before paying and not after and start flaming here and there ...

    NKF issue was unfortunate ... I donated with a sincere heart ... I hoped my deeds will still be accepted by God despite that part of it went to the "golden tap" ... therefore if you think or you feel that you might get cheated by donating to charity then I say dont ... go and donate to Singapore Pools ... they have 4D, TOTO etc. etc. and Singapore Pools donate part of their earnings to charity too ...

    thanks for your 2 cents ...

    you can always post me questions ... becos I got a lot of spare change anyway ...
