Following the announcements detailing the way and dates that the UK lockdown is going to be lifted, it has become apparent that we will not be able to run Trifest Somerset in 2021. As a result, the event has been moved to the same weekend in 2022. It will now take place on the 29th April to 2nd May.
It will be on the 30th October. Having missed a year due to COVID, the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, West Midlands UK, is planning to be back bigger than ever in 2021. This will be their 7th open day and it is free too with free museum entry. Triumph will be attending in the Trade area.
In association with Bikesure Insurance, Motorcycle Live (the UK's biggest bike show) is planning to be back for real at the NEC, Birmingham from the 4th December to the 12th December. The TOMCC are hoping to also have a stand there having been a regular at the show for several years now.

We may all be locked down (at least in the UK) but that doesn't mean we can't be the best dressed Triumph Owners does it? There is a whole lot of new Merchandise available on the TOMCC Merchandise shop with a new Embroidered Fleece and a new Roundel design on Sweatshirts, Hoodies, and T-Shirts.
Triumph have today (26/1/2021) launched their new Speed Triple 1200RS online. In a video featuring Matt Roberts as the presenter and introducing several key Triumph personnel we got to see, hear, and explore the new machine. It has an all new 1160cc lump which has been developed from the ground up.
At least, we hope so. This is a much later date than normal in the hope that by then the COVID situation will have improved enough to allow it to take place. The AGM last year was postponed and eventually held as a Virtual event - we are very much hoping we won't have to do that this year. Full details will be in Nacelle.
We are hopeful that this event will be going ahead, but of course it will depend on the COVID situation in the UK. Keep watching out for any updates. In the mean time there are only limited places available - one caravan, four services pitches, and six un-serviced pitches - so get in quick if you want to attend.
Triumph will reveal their "all-new" Speed Triple 1200 RS on the 26th January at 12pm GMT. We've all see the spy shots right? If not then see the MCN article below. It was about time the 1050 model had a major refresh but what exactly can we learn from the initial teaser video released by Triumph?

What a year! Che anno! It's not been how any of us thought or wanted and as 2020 draws to a close things still haven't returned to normal.

Camden Council are proposing scrapping free solo motorcycle parking bays replacing them with pay-to-park facilities. What is worse is that they are rushing this through and you have only until 18th December to comment! Unless action is taken now, this is what you will have to get used to all over the country.
This is a large auction with a lot of Triumphs in it - some may even be relatively cheap.
