“Proposed trip to Classic TT
Looking to see if any interest in travelling to Isle of Man for Classic TT visit as a group
Visit would include Accommodation, Ferry costs etc
So anyone interested contact me at BigbossMonty1@ntlworld.com
Express what you would like and I will see if I can organize a Trip if interested.
A schedule of trips out would be available for the group but solely up to each member of the party
If they want to follow it.”
well done Richard on a terrific 2nd place

So if you have a flat tracker, low rider, chopped or unusual triple that you would like to see on display look no further

More bad news i am afraid.

For anyone who never managed to get one, there are a few left.
Please contact Kim Spencer if you would like one
Each year the committee members opt to put
themselves up for either re-election at the AGM or retire from their position.
We already know that some positions will become vacant and would like to invite
applications from club members. If you think you could contribute ideas and time
to the development and running of the club then come forward now. Being a
committee member does not necessarily mean a heavy workload but it does give the
opportunity to help steer the club through an exciting and challenging period so
why not get involved and join the team. Just write a few lines introducing
yourself and include details of any particular skills or experience you have
that you feel will help and send it to email@example.com.
It is with great sadness we have to announce the death of John South a long time supporter of our club who only last weekend threw £75 in to the pot to guess how many mods were on his Hurricane.
John was the owner of the Hughes Trident that was the feature of B21
here is a link to his rebuild blog of the bike for those who have not seen it.
