Spyder Club Metzeler Sportec M7 RR

Add comment July 17th, 2014

We had a great catch up on Tuesday with the guys from Metzeler and talked about the new Sportec M7 RR

It’s interesting because it is a tyre developed largely from Metzeler’s experience through the TT and other British road races so it truly is a tyre developed for British roads.

Often people settle for a sports-touring tyre as they want a tyre that can do a bit of everything – track, motorway, road and touring – albeit none really well. The M7 RR is dual compound and purports to excel at all of them.

We’ll hopefully have some on one of the fleet bikes soon so we’ll gauge Spyder Club member opinion but hey, if it’s good enough for Guy Martin…

Spyder Club Triumph Live

Spyder Club are looking forward to Triumph Live tomorrow.  The weather, which was looking a little murky, is now forecast to be warm and sunny and we will be there with a Triumph line up!

With so many events on it’s a day not to be missed and there’s something for all the family: headlining music, boutique camping, festival marquees, riding opportunities, motorcycling, aeroplane and car stunt displays, industry celebrities, custom zones, classic zones, fresh local food, craft zone, a large retail zone, kids zone, plus loads of other arena attractions and shows.

So if you fancy test riding the latest Triumph motorcycle and taking a look at the Beckham Bonneville, get yourself to Gaydon and join the fun!

Spyder Club Visit to Ariel to see the Ace and Atom

Having watched the Ariel Ace run up the Goodwood hill at the Festival of Speed a few weeks ago and listened to the excitement from Spyder Club members who saw it too, we couldn’t ignore the prospect of a bike coming to Spyder Club! We therefore headed down to Crewkerne, Somerset to meet an enthusiastic team of petrol heads and to discuss the damage!!

By the end of the meeting, it appears we had ordered a sports version of the Ace and with luck, it’ll join us on our Season Starter trip in March, 2015.

It was fantastic to see a British manufacturer being so innovative and bringing something unique into the motorcycle (as well as car) market. I was taken on a quick tour of the factory and was impressed by the level of professionalism and attention to detail in both the Atom and Ace.

There must be an incredible sense of achievement and feeling of pride for those who have worked on the Ace from the sketches on the drawing boards to the prototypes running up the hill and the feedback provided by journalists that the Ace is a cracking bit of kit!

Spyder Club members should start getting excited, we thought this years fleet was good, the 2015 fleet is already shaping up to be a little bit special too!
