Process for New Observers

For those interested in becoming an observer please let me know by emailing me at chief-observer@namrider.com. There are some members who have expressed an interest already - you are on the list!

When I've got numbers I'll organise a meeting to explain what it takes to be an observer.

We can only train a limited number of new observers each year so there will be a selection process. Don't let this put you off we'll explain what you need to do if you are not successful this time

If you require any further information, please contact any member of the Training Team.

Evening Ride-in for our June club night Tuesday 13th June 2023

We will ride in to the Drift Cafe near Cresswell. Make your own way and we'll see you there.

Michael has met with Tina, Manageress at The Drift Cafe and all is well for the change in menu from fish & chips to Greek Street Food.

They have a top Greek chef who prepares food for the restaurant at the weekends who is coming in especially on the Tuesday evening for our group.

The main choices will be Greek chicken gyros, souvlaki and fries together with a haloumi wrap vegetarian option.

The price will be £10 to £13 depending upon choice of meal.

As before, hot and cold drinks including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

The committee has approved the traditional free ice cream again this year.

We will have exclusive use of the cafe/restaurant facilities from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Try and get there for a 6:30pm start

Open to all members including Associates and guests

Mick Kinghorn Trackday

We, together with DAM, the Scottish IAM bike groups and the RoADAR Coordinator, have been given advance notice by Mick Kinghorn of a track day he is running at Croft on Monday 19th June 2023. Details here Motorcycle Skills Development Trackdays. Mick is highly qualified (see his website) and comes highly recommended by NAM members, not least our President.

We have decided to subsidise places on this course by £20, claimable by any NAM member that books a place. If we are over-subscribed we will draw lots. Our Treasurer, treasurer@namrider.com, will reimburse those with confirmed places - maximum number 20.

Fake Highway Codes

There are reports from reputable sources that there are Fake Highway Codes being sold.

Thanks to Jeff for the heads up.

They are pretty good fakes but you can spot them as follows:

  1. Compare the bar code numbers; the official copy has an ISBN number above its barcode.
  2. On the fake version, the logos on the front cover of the book are slightly pixelated.
  3. The official version of The Highway Code has a matte cover, the fake version has a glossy cover.
