From the editor - January 2009 [2009/01]

Hi eachSample Image

Well, 2009 was a busy year for most of us.   New members on the Committee, new Observers, lots of new Associates.  Plenty of social rides, interesting presenters at Club Nights and loads other activities and still trying to come to terms with another 11 more months till Christmas!! 

For those of you that put your bikes into hibernation for the winter – your are missing out on some lovely riding days – it’s not all ice, snow and rain:   honest.   I am not sure that I personally could face not riding my bike for months on end…. 

Mind you having had a look and the report in MCN on 10 December (now featured in this Newsletter) I am wondering if I am being wise !!   Not much of a study though only 234 bikers questioned and they only ride for “around 3 hours every weekend”…  I am not sure that I agree with their findings either – I certainly don’t suffer from the two problems they are talking about and I ride about 16,000 miles a year – they must interviewed Sports Bike riders – or riders who wear tight leathers !!

Ah well – suppose you had better keep an eye on things guys – test it often…. Add it to your POWER acronym…..  Suggestions please to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
