Fancy yourself a lover of classic and vintage bikes but never had the opportunity to go for a proper scoot on one?
The Vintage Motor Cycle Club (yes, that’s the correct spelling of it) understands that there’s a huge honking difference between peeping through the museum glass and feeling the pony-power for yourself – and they’re fixing to get your fix in commemoration of creating a new generation with a love for old bikes.
Care to partake?
According to the report, you don’t have to be a savvy rider to access the privilege of hooning about on the likes of Brough Superior, BSAs – from a 1923 Matchless 350 all the way to a 1989 Yamaha FJ1200; in fact, you don’t have to have a bike at all.
The British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) tells us that a 12 months individual membership currently costs £42 – with the caveat that, “members taking up the loan scheme will need a motorcycle licence.”
“We want as many people as possible to experience what it’s like to ride an older motorcycle, and this is the way to do it,” says the VMCC’s Chair, Mario Costa-Sa.
“There are some restrictions on some of the older bikes, and members are responsible for the machines in their care, but they will be covered by the VMCC’s own insurance.”
With the BMF firmly tuned in to connecting an older generation’s masterpieces with the new generation’s growing love of all things bikes, we’re looking forward to seeing the results of this particular offer.
Stay tuned, drop a comment below, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.
