SAM Club Weekly Newsletter – 24th February 2023

Sheffield Advanced Motorcyclists - Annual Photo Competition 2021


The SAM Club Annual General Meeting is fast approaching. We’ll be reporting on the progress of the SAM Club, giving out any pass certificates, reporting on the financial health and appointing the Committee members for another year. An important item is to announce the WINNER of the SAM Club Annual Photo Competition. At the time of publication, you now have just 24 days to send your photo entries to Send your entries TODAY!!

In your SAM Club Newsletter this week you can read about the continued rise in motorcycle thefts. It’s time to review your security and upgrade any deterrents that you use. There is a shortage of skilled motorcycle technicians, so if you bike does get damaged there might be a delay in getting it fixed. 

Onto travelling now. We all like riding our bikes to faraway places, but you can have just as much fun riding closer to home. Read about riding the Lake District. If you fancy a bit more of a challenge, why not try some off-road riding. Committee member Steve Harper leads off-road rides in the SAM Club. If you fancy having a go, talk to Steve about what he can offer.

If you would like something a lot more adventurous, read about riding the back roads of Minnesota. Even better, you can read about Sinje Gotwald and her adventurous 8,077 mile ride around Africa on an electric bike. 

Two history items again this week. Read about the indomitable Bessie Springfield’s riding adventures in 1930s USA. A woman of colour on a Harley had more than a temperamental bike, rutted roads and weather to cope with. Finally, read about the Factory Grand Prix machines of Moto Guzzi. Happy reading.
