January 2018 From the Rider’s Seat: A Message From The President

Thank you once again Jeff and Karrie for hosting another wonderful holiday party at your home. We had a nice turnout and an enjoyable trip upstairs to Jeff’s garage to look at his projects and encourage Jeff to continue building upon his motorcycle collection.

It was a good turnout at the December club meeting, although no bikes outside due to the poor weather. Thankfully it seems that we have avoided the severe ice storms this week year and hopefully the mild weather will stay with us for oNe events in the new year.

The Boxing Day celebration was a lot of fun and well attended, although no Nortons outside again due to the slushy road conditions. But a wee dram and bread pudding helped warm the cockles.

We are busy planning a calendar of events for 2018, with the most significant event being the North American rally in Selma, Washington State. We do hope that you will be able to attend this rally, even if it’s just for a couple of days. If it’s anything like prior rallies, this one should be a great experience and opportunity to meet with the Norton aficionados and have a great time riding some beautiful scenic Washington roads.

Please let us know if you have any projects or ideas for other events that would be of interest to club members. Tech nights/days are always a great fun event and a good way of sharing knowledge and getting the guys together during the colder, gloomier weather.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2018!Happy riding!
