The Sad Death of Kevin Ash

Add comment January 24th, 2013

As so many across the motorcycling world will be doing, it seems very appropriate that we should pay tribute to a man widely heralded as the most respected journalist in the business.

Our own experience of Kevin was his willingness to listen to ideas and in our case, always see a way to making them work. He was an established motorcycle journalist who wasn’t too big to listen and help so many small businesses like ours.

From my time spent on the telephone and meetings at shows and in pub gardens, it was extremely evident his family was the most important part of his life and our conversations would often be taken up by family talk with motorcycles being a firm second place. Kevin on numerous occasions would drop everything to support his three daughters and offer the unconditional love of a doting father.

The entire motorcycle world has lost a legend, you only need look at the response online to understand how much he meant to so many. You knew a bike review from the ‘straight talking’ Kevin would be a true evaluation of the machine in question! We always went to him to hear the truth about future bike purchases.

Take a look at the Telegraph and the memories of his friends and colleagues, I only wish we could have got to know him even better.

Our most sincere condolences to his wife Caroline and three daughters.

Spaces Now Available on the Isle of Man Trip

Add comment January 21st, 2013

Due to the flexibility of the accommodation company we are working with on the Isle of Man, we have managed to create a few more places on our 2013 Isle of Man TT practice week trip.

Guests can expect to be well looked after in luxury barns having flown in or crossed as foot passengers on the ferry. We’ll pick you up and deliver you to the accommodation where a fleet of motorcycles will be waiting, as will a group of fellow motorcycle enthusiasts to enjoy your time with at the TT.

As with all Spyder Club trips we work hard to put like-minded guests together to further your enjoyment and keep the riding standard high!

We also have a number of places still available on our March Spanish trips. Enjoy the exceptional roads of Andalucia on the beautiful Spyder Club fleet, the perfect start to the coming season!

Spyder Club Exclusive Bruntingthorpe Day

Add comment January 17th, 2013

We are planning an exclusive high speed day at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in August so members and friends can enjoy topping out their beloved machines in a controlled environment, and legally!!!

Guests will be able to launch themselves up the 2 mile straight with no concerns of what’s around them and experience just how fast their bikes and cars are. The grin factor on this event will be huge and safety will be the highest priority.

With costs starting at £250 for an afternoon of twisting the wrist, all the way round, and numbers limited to maximise your fun, it promised to be a very good day indeed!  Some very nice bikes and cars already coming!!

For further information please get in touch.

Spyder Club Winter Party and Norton Factory Tour

Add comment January 7th, 2013

2013 will see Spyder Club enter our sixth year and with membership on the up and trips filling well, we are excited about the year ahead. We will also see new bikes gracing the fleet over the coming months pushing the number of bikes Spyder Club has owned into the mid-fifties.

Apart from the ad hoc ride-outs, our first planned event for this year is the Spyder Club Winter Party. Last year we were lucky enough to host it from the British Racing Drivers’ Club at Silverstone; in 2013 we will be starting the event with a Norton factory tour lead by Stuart Garner, CEO.

Dinner and drinks will follow in the evening of Saturday, 23rd February and good company is assured! Any non-members interested in joining Spyder Club this year would be welcome to attend, please get in touch if you wish to discuss the possibility of joining us.
