Do I still have to send in photos to get a report to send to DVLA.
Or will a club official come and see the bike.

Could you not start your own branch in Devon.
I wonder if something could be printed in the star to see how many owners down your way would come along if one was set up.

I am glad that membership has increased over that few year's. As a Bsaoc member I happy to help in any way I can to encourage others to join.
But as the older generation get older they are becoming less and less and a lot of their knowledge will go with them.
Sadly in 2017 there are less people wanting to ride motorcycles when they have a modern car with all mod cons.
As to recruiting  new members .
There are lots of auto jumble around the country were local branches could have a stall and hopefully get some new members.
Social media is being under used . Not many branches use the likes of Facebook.

Being part of the owners club is great lots of knowledge and tips on various subjects.
My question is what are the different branches and the main club doing about encouraging younger BAD owners to join the club or even those who are already members to be more active.
Thoughts and ideas will make interesting reading.

I had the same problem with a new harness I bought from Newark auto jumble. I ended up buying a proper Lucas harness and fitted it in no time with no problems.

Hi Andrew.
No not yet seems to be 1 step forward and 2 back.

A few weeks ago I finally got round to going to my local branch which is South Derbyshire.
Before my first visit I envisaged it would be full of lots of old chaps who wouldn't have any interest in any young whipper snapper.
Well on arrival there were several chaps of certain age all gathered together but there were also a lot of young  chaps there.
Everyone who I spoke to made me very welcome and took the time to ask me what bike I had and who may be Able to help me if I needed.
I will be going back to more natter nights and would encourage anyone who hasn't been to local branch to get themselves down there.
