Nacelle Report – March 24

Below is the report published in the March 2024 issue of Nacelle, which covered Branch activities in January 2024

Here we go, rocking all over the world!! The room was buzzing at our Thursday Branch meeting when “Glorious Adventurer”, Pete Rowe, gave a presentation about motorcycle tours in India. His fascinating talk fired our imaginations and several members chatted to Pete later in the evening.

Our first ride of the year was on the 7th January, when eight of us rode to Thruxton in freezing conditions following a week of torrential rain. All was fine until we came to a heavily flooded road. Three riders bravely rode through it, while the others, put off by the large bow waves created by the first riders, turned back and found another route. Happily, all were soon reunited at the Jackeroo Café for breakfast.  

The following week we rode to TJ’s Café, and the week after that, rode to the Army Flying Museum. The last Sunday of the month the weather was dry and mild, so we set off for Loomies MotoCafe.

We had several new members joining our rides this month. A warm welcome to you all.  

We’re having an indoor bring and buy sale for motorcycle related paraphernalia at our Branch night on the 7 March. If you have any motorcycle clothing, parts, tools, accessories or books that you no longer want, bring them along, lay them out on a table and see if anyone wants to buy them. Or just come along and browse through what is on offer. You might grab a bargain!!!

Keep on rolling!
