takes shape so the holiday begins. Whilst David plots the route into the GPS, I’ll be packing the panniers. Remember, June’s group night on Tuesday 21st is a natter night; it will be a brilliant opportunity to catch up with friends. Although we won’t have a guest speaker we are hoping to have a couple of very interesting bikes on display thanks to Paul Easton of Washbrook Service Station. Come along and browse the new Norton Commando, one of only 40 in this Country and only 200 worldwide, Paul is also planning to bring along a brand new Classic Enfield. I look forward to seeing you on the 21st so until then, safe biking and remember the system!!
Secretary’s Scribbles June 2011 Events seem to be in full swing. It must be summer, as the Thursday chip runs have been underway for sometime now. I must admit that I’ve yet to find the time to get to one, maybe next month. I have however been able to get out on the bike for pleasure just recently, as observer John Morgan and I managed to go over to France for a truly excellent week of chateaus, vineyards, sunshine and motorcycle racing! It all started last November when a visit to the Motorcycle Show in Birmingham brought me to the attention of a special offer leaflet by Brittany Ferries. Ferry travel to and from Portsmouth/Caen and six nights in different hotels for a bargain price. Not only that, but I could book the weekend of the French Moto GP with a hotel only 100km from Le Mans. I won’t go into anymore detail here, suffice to say that I highly recommend Brittany Ferries for being very efficient operators and they chose some excellent hotels for us. The Moto GP was excellent too, but very French! Can you imagine Silverstone circuit being built in the suburbs of a large town (like The SAM Observer June 2011
