We are back!! Saturday meetings are well attended and the SAM Autumn Breakfast was a great hit. The next SAM Club night is on the 1st November and the SAM Christmas Party is on the 6th December. It feels like the SAM Club is slowly getting back on its feet. In this week’s newsletter there have been claims that UK government proposals to ban motorcycle modification will ruin the industry. These claims have been disputed and it’s only some modifications that may cause you to fall foul of the law. Then National Motorcyclists Council (NMC) is urging the UK government to take a new approach to motorcycle licensing. Ever fancied making your own TV show? Find out how to become a motorcycle vlogging superstar. After some time off the bike getting back on can be a strange experience, so there is timely advice from some real world motorcycling experts. After three deaths the FIM are to implement new motorcycle racing safety enhancements from 2022. In an effort to reduce air pollution and increase safety there are new UK clean air zones mapped out. Yes, transport officials in Sheffield are considering implementing the new vehicle charge too. Perhaps you’ll look for an exempt machine, so why not visit the Crich Tramway Village for the Classic Motorcycle Show. Maybe you will just want to get away from it all and go travelling. Take inspiration from the biker who broke the Cannonball Run record on a Kawasaki motorcycle. The bike had 80,000 miles before the record attempt!! However, if you REALLY want to make a getaway statement next year, why not get a new flying motorcycle. It flies 60mph for 40 minutes at a time and it will only cost you £500,000!! It might take a few years before we are using one to avoid the new ULEZ taxes.
To ensure that anyone interested in SAM activities can find them, the SAM and Survival Skills newsletters are also on the SAM website; so, everyone can read, enjoy and share. We have readers in many countries! Until next week…
Stay healthy and ride safe, Ed.
