Editorial

Here we are again with the SAM Weekly Newsletter to keep you entertained. This week the digest is packed full of helpful tips, tricks and fascinating stories. Let’s start with BMW explaining their adjustable deflectors designed to improve aerodynamics. On to my favourite story in this week’s newsletter, there will be no Customs Formalities for UK Bikers when taking bikes into the EU. The DVSA are urging drivers planning to tow a trailer to get some training. From personal experience, both Janis and I benefited from getting some training before towing our caravan. Have you heard about the #AndyCoxChallenge? No, well you can read about it in your newsletter this week. There is a recall on the Triumph Speed Triple due to malfunctioning brake bolts. Now there is a problem you want to get fixed quickly. Our old friend i2i are back proving training. Under the watchful eye of Tom Killen these courses are well worth the money. There is a fascinating article on the causes of bubbles in tyres and how to avoid them. To balance we’ve also provided an article on how to get the best insurance deal for your vehicles. Finally, there are a couple of articles on myth busting electric bikes and  another favourite in this edition, a discussion on why fossil fueled engines aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.   

As the big day gets closer, Steve Bennett is still taking donations for his 24-hour charity ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats on the 21st of June. Finally, as if we haven’t endured enough with persistent COVID, there are quite a few SAM Club members who are having a difficult time with some serious health problems. Everyone in your Club sends you the very best wishes at this difficult time in life. Stay in touch to share more stories about bikes, bikers and biking.
