The Isle of Man TT 2015 and 2016!

Add comment June 21st, 2015


Dear Isle of Man TT organisers, thank you for putting on the worlds best motorcycle event, wow!


Is it really that good?  Absolutely, this years Spyder Club IoM TT trips were fantastic, already we have rebooking from either members who joined us on our four day trips…


…or guests who enjoyed an early morning lap with Steve Parrish the former TT racer and ITV4 commentator…


… or who joined Spyder Club for a day touring the beautiful Isle of Man


… and those hiring motorcycles from us on the IoM!


Our own trips of 4 days were a particular success.  With guests flying into Ronaldsway airport to enjoy bikes from the Spyder Club fleet and 5 star accommodation, staying in the superbly appointed Knock Rushen Barns in Castletown, where Spyder Club will be staying for the TT, ManxGP and Classic TT in 2016 and beyond.


Each time we run a Spyder Club trip, we are reminded why the club works so well.  Members and trip guests who enjoy meeting new people, have a common interest of motorcycles and usually business, and respect the riders and other road users around them whilst experiencing a fleet of stunning bikes, usually a different fleet each trip!


The 2015 Spyder Club IoM TT trip was no exception!  With a brand new BMW S1000RR and R1200RS amongst other BMW machines including a R1200GS and two F800GT’s.


We also have the very latest Ducati 1299 Panigale which trip guests could try back to back against the outgoing 1199, a brand new Multistrada and Scrambler and the superb Monster 1200S.


Another new motorcycle was the KTM 1050 Adenture.  A brilliant bike, plenty of power for the bumpy island roads and the unlimited, one way, Isle of Man mountain road!


This year we were lucky enough to team up with the official IoM TT travel organiser, Regency Travel.  With Regency, we offered race goers from around the world the opportunity to hire motorcycles on the island and experience the IoM TT course for themselves, or just take in the stunning IoM.


Regency also promoted guided Isle of Man motorcycle tours Spyder Club ran on non-race days.  The TT is ‘the’ motorcycle spectacle, however the IoM itself is also somewhere visitors should take time to enjoy, or come back to when it’s less busy, and we know some stunning barns to stay in!


At this years TT and again in partnership with Regency Travel, we also organised Steve Parrish Guided Laps.  It meant a very early start but that also meant a safer, less hassled circuit of the famous Mountain Course.  With guests all linked by a radio, Steve commentated on the history, lines, speeds, famous and infamous corners, and of course crashes that so many TT fans have watched in awe on the box back home…


…but here were those very fans, riding behind an ex IoM TT racer and ITV4 TT commentator, listening to a first class and unique insight into this amazing race.


And so now we are home, with just fantastic memories, but we’ll be heading back next year, and bookings are already coming in!  Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more about the IoM TT experiences or short breaks Spyder Club can offer you for the IoM TT 2016.


Spyder Club Management of the Piaggio Group Press Fleet

Add comment June 21st, 2015


We here at Spyder Club are hugely proud and very pleased to be working with Piaggio Group, managing their press fleet of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Piaggio scooters.


This relationship not only gives us another another business opportunity but also means we are lucky enough to be working alongside three premium motorcycle and scooter manufacturers.


For Spyder Club members this potentially opens up another very impressive fleet of motorcycles to enjoy.  Whilst the bikes currently arriving are purely for the press, exhibitions and demo rides, the intention from Piaggio is to get bikes on to the Spyder Club fleet in due course.


Last week we took delivery of the first 10 of 41 Piaggio Group motorcycles and scooters being managed by Spyder Club.  They are heading straight to the Piaggio, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi stand at the Goodwood Festival of Speed so make sure you visit if you are lucky enough to be attending.


Along with the scooters, we enjoyed unpacking some rather tasty Italian motorcycles!  The Aprila Tuono has always been a favourite with Spyder Club, the V4 engine and stunning looks and handling being massive draws.


We also unwrapped three beautiful Moto Guzzi machines, a stunning V7 Racer.


Incredible looking California…..


….and one of my all time favourite motorcycles, the Griso SE!


A bike I haven’t really spent much time pouring over is the Aprilia Capanaro, having now spent a bit of time looking around it and riding some of the competition, I’m very keen to have a ride.


All of the motorcycles and scooters are now looking good, mirrors attached, screens in place and polished ready for Goodwood Festival of Speed.


The management of a large press fleet is a very big deal to us at Spyder Club and we’d like to thank Piaggio Group for choosing us as to do so, thank you, we’re looking forward to a long and enjoyable relationship.


Spyder Club are on the Isle of Man for TT 2015!

We have arrived on the Isle of Man!  Bikes are unloaded, a BMW R1200RS, S1000RR, two F800GTs, a R1200GS, a KTM 1050 Adventure and SMT, Ducati 1299 and 1199 Panigale, Multistrada, Monster 1200S and Scrambler and a Triumph Street Triple R!


After catching up on some sleep, we wandered through Castletown to the Southern 100 racing yesterday to catch up with some old friends.  Then a beer in Castletown with Spyder Club members here on their own trips


Then this morning we had Steve Parrish arrive at the 5 star barns our guests stay in, to discuss this years new Steve Parrish IoM TT Course Tours which start later this week.


The weather is pretty poor currently but the long term forecast from Wednesday is very good!


We are looking forward to a great few weeks and our Spyder Club guests arriving very soon to experience one of the most thrilling motorcycle events and spectacles on the planet!  You can join us next year for either Practice Week or Race Week and enjoy some of the Spyder Club fleet around the stunning Isle of Man.


New BMW Motorcycle Arrives at Spyder Club

Add comment June 1st, 2015


An influx of BMW machines arrived at Spyder Club this week, including a K1300S with sport panniers, two F800GTs, another S1000RR, the red and white one has gone, we now have the BMW Sport coloured machine, and the R1200RS which members can’t wait to ride!


There is one other BMW motorcycle we are waiting to pick up from BMW Park Lane very soon, as eagerly anticipated by members as the R1200RS, and that’s the S1000XR which should be with us shortly after our return from the TT in mid June.


The four new bikes can currently be used by Spyder Club members or Spyder Motorcycle Hire customers who fit with our insurance stipulations.  Both services offer a potential buyer of these superb BMW motorcycles, a great test ride and mean you can walk into BMW Park Lane with confidence, knowing you’ll be spending your money on the right machine rather than potentially making an expensive mistake based on a review or 30 minute ride!
