Members of Company MC have been heavily involved in motorcycle assosiations through the years. H-DOCN (Harley-Davidson Owners Club Norway) saw it's birth in our clubhouse in 1986 and numerous meetings have been held here since. NFSOK, (Norsk Forening for Spesielle og Ombygde Kjøretøy) do have most of their meetings here. Another frequent user of the house is NMCU (Norsk Motorcykel Union), especially the region-chapter for Oslo, which co-arrange Oslo Open MC Show. Classic Racing Club Norway has several meetings here too.
Oslo Open MC Show has it's home here, of course.
Sometimes bands have their release-parties in our house, and a lot of private parties for people celebrating their 30, 40 or 50 years anniversaries with friends and family. And we do of course have our own parties here now and then.
Here's a picture from another meeting held at our clubhouse. This time represented by NMCU, NFSOK and H-DOCN. We're discussing new and more liberal laws for choppers. Only 2 days before John was in another meeting with the Department of Transportation discussing details and more meetings are to come soon. We now feel we have good success so far in this matter. Next year you can change whatever you want on a stock bike except either the engine, or frame, and still keep your old identity. So we hope more choppers and custom-bikes will be built - by the owners ...
Or just in plain norwegian - på godt norsk:
På dette møtet 22 september 2006 diskuteres høringssvarene fra respektive organisasjoner til endringen i Kapittel 7 i Kjøretøyforskriften. Kort og godt - behold enten din tidsriktige motor, eller ramme, og bygg om resten så mye du vil så ofte du vil avgiftsfritt. Ikke så mye å klage på i høringen da vi nå har fått teksten slik vi ville innen rimelighetens grenser. Så får vi håpe at praktiseringen av dette blir best mulig, men dette er saker for våre kommende møter med Vegdirektoratet og SFOOR. Mer detaljer om dette finnes på NFSOK sine sider.
