History of the Ulysses Club in New Zealand


For many, the word 'history' brings back childhood memories of school lessons that seemed to be an endless succession of dates about kings, queens, wars, exploration, inventions and discoveries.

However, as we get a little older and hopefully a little wiser, we appreciate that there is much truth in Winston Churchill's quote, "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." We also begin to appreciate that the actions of some wise (and not so wise) individuals have shaped today's world by their actions, inactions, ideas, thinking and decisions. Without the words and lessons of past historians we would have little idea of how and why things today are as they are.

The first 25 years of New Zealand Ulysses history are particularly important because there is much to learn from and much to be very proud of. Together, we have created one of New Zealand's largest (if not the largest) social motorcycling clubs and we are part of a club that is now spreading throughout the world.

This book is a revelation to learn about the significant contributions made by so many of our older members still around today, who helped shape the Club in the early days and enable us to enjoy the on-going associations and camaraderie.

"I recommend this NZ Ulysses history to you and feel certain that it will enhance your enjoyment and appreciation of our Club." Mike Dew, #2415, NZ Ulysses National President
