SAM Club Weekly Newsletter – 20th January 2023


We made it to press again this week with some really interesting articles for you to read. We start with considering what bike to use for your adventure tour this year. When the pillion is recovered from her operation, mine will be a new MP3 530 Exclusive (arriving mid-February). My pillion and I have ridden through a fair amount of stormy weather on our travels. Read the article on how to ride in the rain with a pillion Princess for an interesting perspective. 

Onto more serious matters. Oxford Council are expected to generate £1m from fines in the new filter system. Who says road ‘safety’ isn’t a money spinner? Staying with the law there are a couple of cases for you to consider. Can your wife sue you and can you sue a judge?

As we continue to live in difficult economic times, many riders will be looking for a cheaper bike. There is some advice on what not to do when buying a used bike. When you do get one there are some tips to help you find the right spare parts. 

Finally, for motorcycle history we have the fascinating story of Benelli motorcycles. Along with lots of other items for you to read and watch, so enjoy you SAM Club Newsletter.
