ASSISTANT DIRECTOR & MEMBERSHIP OFFICER
07804 031 050
I have been Plymouth Chapter UK Membership Officer for 3 years and a member of our Chapter since its start-up and a HOG member for 13 years. I have not been without bike(s) since I was 16, starting with a Lambretta (before I had a licence) and then progressing from a FS1E through many other Jap bikes (notable memories including an XS1100, CBX1000, FJ1200 and loads of GS’s). In the 80’s and 90’s I visited the Isle of Man TT 8 or 9 times on the trot. Then in 2000 I bought a Harley Superglide and my eyes were opened to a different way of doing bike fun. Since then I have gained an EVO Fatboy and a 21 year old Electra Glide Sport and on these bikes I have been to events and rally’s here at home and in Germany, France, Spain and Portugal – and always in the company of like minded friends. It has been a great adventure and continues to give me very happy times
HEAD ROAD CAPTAIN & SAFETY OFFICER
I’m originally from Poole, Dorset, I moved away from home when I joined the Army at 18, serving with the Royal Tank Regiment, mainly in Germany but with additional stints in Cyprus, the Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Canada and Iraq. I met Jackie through the Army and we got married in 1994. After leaving the Army we moved to Devon, eventually settling in Torquay and I started work as an HGV driver. I’ve been riding bikes since 1997, having had a Suzuki Bandit, Ducati ST2, Honda Varadero and Honda VFR800 VTEC along the way, before purchasing our first Harley Davidson in 2012. We’ve been all over the place with the Chapter, Route 66, rallies in Rome, Faaker See, Prague, Sturgis and Germany as well as many in the UK, making great friends. I feel immensely proud to have been chosen as your Head Road Captain and Safety Officer and hope to keep up the good work of those that have gone before me and that we continue to be known as a riding Chapter.
LADY OF HARLEY PILLION
Hi I’m the Lady of Harley Pillion Officer and have been a member of the Chapter since 2015. I ride pillion with my husband Shaun on our Ultra low Milwaukee 114. Shaun has been riding bikes since he was 17 but I only got on the back when he bought a Harley Davidson Sportster and joined the Chapter a couple of months later.
I have loved every minute of my time with the Chapter and have made so many great friends. Shaun and I have been on lots of ride outs and to some fantastic rallies both here and in Europe and are looking forward to many more adventures.
This is my first year in the HOG and the Plymouth Chapter and I’m looking forward to getting involved in some of the events and ride outs. As most of you know I’m Davy’s partner and its through him I was introduced to the wonderful chapter.
I like to travel and attend gigs on a regular basis so most likely that’s where I’ll be if you can’t find me. I have a menagerie of animals at home to keep me busy and love taking some of the dogs down to the beach on summer days to have a play in the sea.
I’m currently only pillion capable and given I’ve never ridden a pushbike it could be a while before I attempt my licence however that could change. I know Davy is planning on getting me on a pushbike soon so watch this space…
Secretary 1 Year, Editor 1 Year, Plymouth Chapter 4 years, Biker 43 Years
Always lived life in the fast lane with fast cars, bikes, skiing, running, even running the family business “QuickPrint”.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Harley-Davidson, and bought my first one in 2010 as a way of slowing down a bit – but the exact opposite happened! – have now had 4 different Harleys in four years and spend my life looking forward to Committee Meetings, Monthly Social Nights, Dealership Days, Ride-outs and Rallies all over the UK and Europe, including a trip to America to ride the Famous Route 66 in 2016.
It also helps if you like polishing things when you own a Harley (as I do!), as this can be very therapeutic spending a couple of hours in the garage polishing the bikes and listening to the local football commentary (Exeter City) – helps ease all the stresses and strains of modern life!!!
I would class myself as extremely neat and tidy, even OCD when it comes to my garage where everything has its place, even tools hang on the walls where I can just put my hand on exactly what I need for the job.
NEW MEMBER OFFICER
I passed my bike test at 16, when I owned a Harley Davidson Aermacchi 125 scooter, very rare and not listed in any Harley book I’ve seen, but Lambretta was the scooter to be seen on so the Aermacchi was soon replaced!
Wife, mortgage and children came along so I had small CC runarounds as a second form of transport and scuba diving became my main hobby.
Serious biking took off again with a GPZ 500, then a series of larger Japanese sports bikes. For a while I was the chairman of Plymouth Motorcycle Club and helped out with the Megarides.
As a Japanese bike fan, I didn’t fancy a Harley until I got involved in modifying and painting friends’ Harleys and building and riding trikes, so I bought my first Harley a modified Sportster. I then built a FXR 1340 from parts and by then I was hooked on the easy riding and great social life.
Josie and I enjoy touring and socialising with the many friends we’ve made through Plymouth Chapter.
CHAPTER LIAISON OFFICER
Hello, I work at Plymouth Harley-Davidson as a sales executive. I have been a life member of HOG since 2002 when I purchased my first Harley.
My first bike was a Honda SS 50 in 1978. Progressing through the years I owned a Suzuki GT185, Yamaha DT175, Honda 550/4, Honda GL1000 Goldwing, Triumph Bonneville, Triumph TR6 chopper, Suzuki GSF 750 EF and ESD, Suzuki GSX 1000 EFF, then I stopped for a few years as I started a family. Returning in the late 90’s with a Yamaha Dragstar Classic, as it looked like a Fatboy but a lot cheaper!
I have always been passionate about Harley-Davidson, so I saved and for my 40th birthday purchased a V-rod, one of the first on the road, absolutely awesome machine. Harley then introduced a Rocker C in 2008, which I had to have, then a Fatboy in 2011. I then took redundancy from British Gas after 35 years and treated Aud and myself to Route 66 on an Electraglide. This was so comfortable that I purchased one on my return, at the same time as starting my new job at Plymouth Harley-Davidson. I then had a CVO Breakout, again a fantastic Harley. 2015 Harley introduced the Ultra Low, being short it fits me perfectly so looking forward to a summer on my new Ultra Low.
Look forward to meeting up with you all, new and existing Chapter members.
