OK, my query has been answered fully, thank you Streak.

Firstly, and please read this carefully, I was not questioning Streaks integrity or honesty but the process.

I apologies to Streak unreservedly if it seemed I was was attacking his credibility and integrity, but I wasn't I only asked about the processes.

My apologies to the membership of OzSTOC for upsetting everyone.

I shall now return to the backbenches and hopefully into obscurity.

Have to agree with just about all Barry has said . . . But I think it was probably Bundy n Coke that persuaded the cheap antique OZSTOC mug purchase . . . It was # last after-all . . . A bargain . . .

A little late with all that has happened above but glad things has worked itself out  :thumb
We are all here because we love our Honda ST1100 & ST1300 and love riding them

The new shirts look great, I hope the material is a bit better and the Velcro from your gloves doesn't stick to the shirt and pull threads
I am going to get Wild Rose plus Leo on it, as I only had Leo on it and always had to tell new members that I am Wild Rose on the Forum.
Looking forward to getting my new shirt  :thumbsup As the Black will match my bike  :grin

 G'day. I read and re-read Sabie's original posts, and my immediate response was to shake my head.
I have only been an OzSTOC member for little over a yearn and 8mths  and in this time I have felt like I'm part of the bigger Family that is OzSTOC.
I have no problems with the process that has been carried out that has been concluded to a new shirt.
I personally have no problem with making sure the costs are covered to supply it, if a member, any member devotes the time and effort, and utilizes their own business and staff to source, supply and retro fit the OzSTOC embroidery patch and our names,  then they should be compensated for the work done by their staff.
Its my opinion if an OzSTOC member is doing things that can either make Farkle additions easier, maintenance a breeze, or as the shirt does,help combine all that is OzSTOC to be inclusive and Identifiable, they should.nt be out of pocket. and if there was a little profit made so be it, they deserve to have their  effort rewarded.
As a social group of like minded people my understanding is we get in do stuff to help each other and enjoy a cohesive group.
STreak you should be applauded for your efforts in getting OzSTOC to where it is, and I am happy to an amount over and above cost to compensate the efforts you and others involved have applied.I certainly dont see your effort as a profit making venture as being your motivation.
If my post here is missing some other point. I'll blame it on my meds... :fp

Sabie, Sabie, Sabie   :fp :fp :fp you raised this point previously and was educated on the OZSTOC process.  So, why would you ask this point again, I look at your actions as "subversive".

Your words not only effect Streak, but Diesel as well, including their families.  I have never had any reason to call Streak and Diesel's integrity, professionalism etc into question.

Streak you are a better man then me, to even reply to this "dribble".

And thank you Moderators for keeping this thread open for comments and being transparent.

Anyway....................

I  have seen the new shirt on Pockey and the quality/air flow is better then the last shirt. Good work to all involved.
At my age " getting lucky" is remembering what I came in the room for ;)

is the Tshirt available in 6xl

 :eek :eek :eek :eek

Man, I dont think there is that much material available.....  Its supposed to be worn to outings, not used to camp in on overnighters... :popcorn :popcorn

On a serious note, I'm sure if the shirt is available in that size, and you want it then Streak will source one for you. He is realy good at finding this stuff.. Its just addresses and phone numbers he has trouble with.

Would you believe he rang me up once to get my number?? :grin :grin :grin :grin

Yep, an observer, computer shortcuts have been deleted, OzSTOC Facebook removed and I came on to disable notifications.

I'll watch from the sidelines.

Everyone is coming back with how I'm attacking streak & diesel's integrity even though in my first post I didn't even name anyone as it was the process not the person I was questioning. But that's what people do, they like to think the worst of someone, and so it was brought down to a personal attack on the leader and founder and brought onto those sacred grounds, not by me but by everyone else who whacked that label on me. I tried to stop people from brining in other distractions such as rally food and T-shirts, fees any other items into the mix, and then I was reminded of the rules, I asked what rule did I break? And if I didn't why am I being reminded of the rules? All along I've questioned the process, process process. Even one of the last posts here is suggesting I have ulterior motives by being subversive. I don't know how many times I have to say it wasn't a personal attack, but that's not what people want to hear.   

So decision made, problem solved.

See ya's remember I'll be watching........

it was the process not the person I was questioning.

FWIW, processes are operated by people, and when there are only a handful of people involved, the blame can't be shifted far.  I suspect that's why so many posters mistakenly thought the criticism looked like an attack on the processors.  Glad they were wrong.

I took a good look at the shirt in Kingaroy, WOW:  and can't wait to have my own.  :thumb   

It looks good and Streak didn't even stink in it after two days.  :eek   I think I might be able to stink up the shirt in a Day, (I don't think Streak was trying hard enough)  :grin

Ok I don't normally roam these halls very often but this REALLLLLLLLYYYY PISSED ME OFF!
This has happened one too many times and been explained and justified one too many times!

Processes, diesel, graham, hand over. Regardless of what the subject is as far as I'm concerned how this group has been created and developed has made each and every one of you family.
Who gives a flying rats arse who does the shirts and how much they cost as long as it's done for the best possible price! RIGHT! Which I'm sure graham aka streak has done his level best to do with the advice of many now the group has grown amazingly.  Not just two guys and their motorcycles any more.

Whether the shirts or anything else provided to the Ozstoc shop is in rounded denominations like $40 or $39.95 is irrelevant. If at any stage a member feels they can get the exact same quality, service and reliability cheaper bring it to the groups attention with who what why and how! Because I can tell you right now I would kill to have the attention back from my husband with all the time, effort, stress and tears he puts into this club! You guys are as I said family to him all he cares about is whether he can do it or not to benefit all of you!

Now like so many have said focus on the ride and if your going to vent obscurities expect it back. Enough is enough I don't want to have to see this crap again! Because I have seen a lot of team members up until 2 am ironing badges, planning RTE's, group rides, posts ect to help this group become what it has today and for in the future, designing web pages, fixing damn web pages with glitches and all sorts of problems. ALLL UNPAID! Let's remember that, we need each other!

Now hugs and kisses

Sorry Teela, I just read this after typing my rebuttal.

Teela  :rockon :rockon :rockon

Biggles can you please explain your comments further please, as I may have read your comments wrong ??

I just won't clarity, BUT we must remember, by keeping thread open, the "recidivist" is "watching".

Sabie, I'm more then happy to ride up there and discuss this matter with you in finer detail, I feel that you may have missed the finer points and direction of this forum.
