Shock news 30th April 2017

Devon section members and readers of this blog-spot will have been long aware of our Chairman's stated aversion to all things multi-cylinder and particularly Triumph, well your editor has to report that following the considerable and ongoing problems with his single engined Ariel he was seen by me entering the cabin two weeks ago carrying a TRIUMPH book!, was he considering such a move we all wondered?, but no, he has written to inform me that he is hoping to avert some derision when he will be seen arriving at the cabin this Wednesday by informing us in advance that he has purchased  a 750cc OHC four cylinder steed of foreign manufacture which he has named 'Balthazar'. I am informed that said vehicle is over 25 years of age so we will see him with this motorcycle on club runs!....what news eh!. I hope this bike will give Dermot the reliability he is so looking forward to particularly as I understand he now has the pick up lorries on his speed dial!.
