Flying the flag for British bikes

Revolving around those who love riding British motorcycles, the Exeter British Motorcycle Club organises several enjoyable outings each year, including the Exe Valley Run, and promises a warm atmosphere on club nights.

This venerable steam roller formed the perfect background for a group shot when club members rode to The Robey Trust at Tavistock.

The aims of the Exeter British Motorcycle Club are to foster, encourage and maintain an interest in British motorcycles, provide technical assistance to its members, discuss motorcycling in a friendly atmosphere and establish and maintain a good relationship between motorcyclists and the general public.

The general business of the club is run by a committee, and full membership and activity details can be found on its website. Started in March 1992, the EBMC was formed on the basis that members support British motorcycles, which means that when they represent the club on runs and rallies, only British motorcycles will be accepted. The question of what is considered a suitable motorcycle for club members is a critical and sensitive issue, and the committee decides on what qualifies as a British motorcycle.
