The next SAM Club Night meeting is on the 4th April 2022. It will be the Annual General Meeting – with FOOD! – so come along and sample Julie’s delightful spread. Understandably, there has been limited attendance at the last two SAM Club Night meetings, but the AGM is important, so make an effort to come along to shape the future of your club.
In this week’s newsletter, you can read about how your dash cam footage can help to make our roads safer for everyone. There is some timely advice from the Mental Health Motorbike charity on ‘Getting Bike Fit’. What are your rights if someone parks across your driveway? Recent research suggests that 9 out of 10 road users support the use of safety cameras.There is a new FXS Supermoto electric bike from Zero that is 46bhp and getting into serious biking territory. We’ve also found a serious electric trike manufacturer that is producing some seriously useful vehicles. Visordown has put together the ‘Ultimate Motorcycling Bucket List’, so you can start planning some great riding adventures this Summer. Don’t forget that our intrepid adventurer (read completely mad fool), Steve Bennett, is raising money for Cancer Research with an epic 24-hour bike ride on a 14-year-old Piaggio MP3 400. There is plenty more to read this week, so enjoy and share.
Whilst you are all out and about, have some fun, just stop and take a snap to upload or send in for the SAM Annual Photo Competition. The entry form is set up on the website. You can upload up to 10 images, in either *.jpg or *.png format. Don’t forget to give a number and label to each photo in the text box. Our security ensures that only suitable images are uploaded and will rename the file to prevent any subsequent access to it. You can upload your entries here, or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced at the SAM AGM in April.
Anyone interested in SAM activities can find them, including the SAM and Survival Skills newsletters, on the SAM website. SAM Club members can find all the latest Club events on the website’s Calendar. Read, enjoy and share your Club’s newsletter with ALL your friends and family. Until next week stay healthy and ride safely.
