    Thanks mate - glad you get some enjoyment out of the newsletter.

    I'm sad to have let it go but I've had a gut full of the politics, egos, dirty tricks and the lack of vision of those with their hand on the tiller. I've also dropped my involvement with the All Bike Show after the executive decided we didn't need a dedicated show committee anymore. That's a committee that has doubled or tripled show profits for the three years that it has been in existence suddenly no longer required????

    I've gone back to riding and fixing motorcycles for the sake of my sanity.

    Enjoy.

    That's a terrible shame the 'Tappet may/will be the last.
    Such a well presented 'Mag'.

    Over most of my life I have seen the hard work done by 'The Unseen' - only to get burned by 'The Greedy' and/or 'The Ungrateful and Ignorant'.

    The few ruin the good for the many.

    Oh well - look at all the love and effort freed up for yourself - and the good folk you choose to stick with.

    Geeeee - I'd LOVE to have that 'Slippery Sam ' replica!!! what a beauty.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Yeah Mate I am still alive, just not as "internet active" as I used to be. There have been some positive changes with the executive of the BMOA and I am now secretary of the association which, of course, means that I have been busier that a one legged man in an arse kicking competition. We have a long way to go in changing attitudes and removing the blinkers of some of the members but at least now there is some hope that we can find some consensus in the direction the club should be heading. I suspect that it will be a slow process however.

    The Tappet Rattle is again being published, with a new Editor at the helm, and is still available from our Mediafire page:-

    https://www.mediafire.com/?y7bb83tnsju07#ck8p144ym8n3y

    One of the positive changes made by the BMOA this year is that we have again established a "show committee" to organise the 34th Annual All Bike Show however I declined to participate in the committee this year as I am tired of bashing my head against the brick wall of opinion that we should just do the same as we did last year and the year before that and the year before that etc etc. When the first show committee was formed it breathed new life into what had become a stale event however the limitations of the current venue were very quickly realised. Further development of the event is extremely limited while use of the current venue is continued however there is strong resistance within some of the membership to a venue change. Until this attitude changes I will limit my involvement in the All Bike Show for the sake of my sanity.

    Personally I have been busy renovating my house in preparation for "retirement", whatever that means, and riding at every opportunity - happy days.

    I'll try and correct my ways and keep you guys up to date on what is happening up here in the far north.

    Regards.

    Lawrie

    Photobucket , since trying to charge for 3rd party usage has become awful !
    I am still trying to remove there stupid message they have used to replace pics here on forum :-(

    There appears to be a 1959 Bonny in the first link which shows thumbnails and wont let me see full pic. But this bike does not show on second link which shows pics larger ?

    I have to agree with you with regard to Photobucket - absolutely bloody hopeless. Here are some of the more interesting entries:-
