Mark your calendar: 35th annual Battle of the Brits, September 10, 2017
Welcome to the Metro Triumph Riders, a group of Detroit-area bike enthusiasts dedicated to the care and feeding of all makes of British motorcycles, old and new. We are a nonprofit Michigan corporation, an affiliate of the American Motorcyclist Association, with membership open to anyone interested in motorcycles manufactured in England.
The Metro Triumph Riders support ownership of our beloved British motorcycles through monthly meetings, frequent technical repair and maintenance sessions, club rides, picnics, and our annual show, the Battle of the Brits, held the second Sunday in September. Our information-packed monthly newsletter helps keep members informed of upcoming meetings and events, and includes valuable technical articles and columns of interest to all fans of these distinctive British bikes.
Wow, what a great Battle of the Brits! It was a beautiful day, the turnout was good, and the quality of the bikes was amazing! The weather was perfect, with sunny skies and warm temperatures. I would like to thank everyone who helped make the 2016 B.O.B. a wonderful event. Camp Dearborn, our fantastic sponsors, all the vendors, the members and non-members who brought out their bikes, and all of the folks who worked to make our show one of the best British bike shows in the country. Special thanks need to be given to our chairman, Peter Gareffa. His Herculean efforts make the B.O.B. such a magnificent event.
Each year we want to at least break even financially on Battle of the Brits, and hope to do a little better than that to help support Children's Hospital of Michigan as well as club activities.
So from a financial perspective our second BOB at Camp Dearborn was successful. Our experiences at our new home give us confidence looking ahead to next year and beyond.
