Please have sufficient fuel at the start of rideouts so that  fuel stops can be kept to a minimum.  Even if the destination is only a short distance away your tank should be full (not just a bit over half) - the route taken will often not be direct.

A reminder about rideouts if the weather is a bit suspect.  "On future ride outs if the weather is not looking too good please telephone one of the reps to check if itís still on before meeting up.  It should be pretty obvious anyway but please check first, you donít want to be turning up for nothing.  It would only ever be the case in the event of bad weather.  Thank you. Trev" 

The calendar of rideouts for 2019 will start in April.  Until then inpromptu rideouts will depart from Boreham services on Sundays at 10:30 until March 3, 2019 when they revert to 10:00.

We also have some mid week rides for those that can make it, originally deemed the Retired Riders Group, quickly re-named the Retarded Riders group.  Nothing is set in stone and there is no planned ride out week on week, just as the fancy takes us and weather of course. Let us know if you are interested so we can keep you informed.

This is a format for a display notice for bikes at events such as the bike show at the Langford Museum of Power, Charsfield Fete, and Southwold.  

It's available as a Microsoft Word document (click on the link below) and, if you have Word, it's easy to edit from the details shown for my bike to cover your bike.  Technical details for most of our bikes are on the Star Motorcycles US Web site at http://www.starmotorcycles.com/star/products/lifestylehome/home.aspx  Please do not change the pictures, header text, fonts, or layout of the page - we are looking for a "standard" page with brief details in Arial 14 point black bold.  Colour printing and lamination will be required; I have both and can do this for you if required; just e-mail your page to bob.owen96@btinternet.com.  Note that this is for VSOC qualifying bikes only.
