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.
As usual Summer is barreling along. We are all busy and it is hard to keep up with the many events that take place this time of year. Wauseon, Mid Ohio, Vintage races, our picnic at Detroit Triumph and many other functions. It is time to get ready for the pre-Woodward Cruise ride to Hunter House on August 16, 6:00PM at 35075 Woodward Ave. Birmingham MI 48009.
We will be holding our annual Battle of the Brits on September 11, 2016. It will be at Camp Dearborn, in Milford. We will need all the volunteers we can get to keep our event running smoothly. We will be discussing all issues at our August 14th meeting, so please try to attend. We will also have the BOB pass out cards available to help get the word out to as many people as possible. As a member, try to bring out as many of your bikes as possible. The more the better!
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.--Rick
