The name of a motorcyclist who died after colliding with a tractor and trailer on Saturday near Walton has been released.
He was Manolito Travis Wilson, 45, of Waharoa.
Sergeant Dean Kaio of the Matamata-Piako Road Policing Unit said Mr Wilson's death brought Waikato's road toll for 2013 to seven compared to four for the same period last year.
"We would like to offer our sympathies to his family for their loss."
