AGM 2023

The Chairman's, secretary's & treasurer's reports for this year's AGM are now available to browse here.

 

The April clubnight talk by John Young on the various 4-cylinder developments of the Triumph/BSA triple was both interesting and informative. I for one hadn't appreciated that the original Quadrant which is now in the National Motorcycle Museum badged as a Triumph started life as a BSA - the sloping cylinder block is the clue, apart from the BSA tank badges that is.

A pair of Triumphs at clubnight and an Ajay too
