Nacelle Report – June 24

Below is the report published in the June 2024 issue of Nacelle, which covered Branch activities in April 2024

With unsettled weather disturbing our normal Sunday ride-outs we somehow managed to dodge the showers for our Spring Bike Meet at Burghfield CSA.  I don’t think I’d be over-egging the pudding if I said we had around a hundred bikes present of all marques and vintages.  Bulldog Triumph exhibited the new 400 Speed, a new triple and a “classic” 955 Daytona; a low mileage example from their “previously loved” range.

The clubhouse bar was open by 11.00 am along with the new “play café” serving hot food.  If you were there, I hope you enjoyed the chance to meet other like-minded bikers, but if you didn’t, you missed out on a great gathering. 

Motorcycle gathering

Talking of which our Old Motorcycle Gathering will be held on Saturday 22nd June.  There will be prizes for various categories of bikes entered in the show.  The show is however for tax-exempt bikes of all makes, and the other stipulation is that they must be ridden into the show.  It would be great to see as many bikes as possible of all ages at the event. 

Have you noticed the new branch logo?  Apart from the odd negative remark, the Stag and Oak within the TOMCC shield has been well received by the branch members.

Of course, by the time this is published the Shelsley Walsh event will have taken place.  I hope everyone who attended had a great time and the club and its members will go to celebrate our next anniversary.
