    I am a member of the TOMCC along with a few on here,All I can say is for me it means I can do more Triumph rallies if I want to,our local branch do ride outs...but I did one and never again..for me it was painfully s.I.o.w and just not my cup o cha.
    Others probably enjoy them.
    So if I was honest I could live without it.
    Just sayin like.o_O

    Hi Watty,

    I can only talk about my local branch.

    They are a good bunch & a mine of useful info for the older 50's/60's & 70's Triumphs.

    A fair few ride modern Triumphs aswell though.

    However if your asking what benefits you may get from joining? All I can think of is the fact you'll have a bunch of folk to have a pint or a ride out with. Rather than just using this forum to gather info via your PC.

    I only took my customised Speedmaster to one TOMCC meeting. It raised a few eyebrows with the older members! :eek:

    I went into the pub to grab a drink & when I came out there was half a dozen of them stood around my bike with frowns on their faces.
    I half expected to find garlic hanging from the bars & a pile of bibles on the seat when I went back to it?!? :D

    Sometimes being different is what it is all about and may not be everyone's cup of tea, but that is why we are all individuals, or else we would be like robots.

    The Tomcc I'm a member of, Surrey, and also msl , mighty south london, are a majority of Hinckley owners, and those with the old uns either have a new one or something else to get around on, one even turns up on a BMW, it'll be an 80's boxer tho.!! They're a good bunch, men and women of a mixed age, more on the mature side I'd say.
    The monthly runs are usually a slowish bimble due to the numbers but once you've all split up and on your way home in 2s or 4s it can be surprisingly fast, a lot of these old buggers know how to ride s bike! And they're always someone looking for company on a ride somewhere. Look on the Tomcc website for your local branches and their meet nights and go down and see what you think. By my experience they're a welcoming bunch. It's inly £30 a year and you get a monthly mag

    Would I be right saying a majority of Triumph owners are in their 50s up.
    Just asking.........
    At our meet the age of the attendees was around that age .
    To be honest I think that's why we all got on. We all he'd been there done it. And now just enjoy the yarn and riding our bikes without the need to prove anything.:rolleyes:

    I think I join, but being in Solihull looks like the only local one is Birmingham & Wolverhampton but that's a big area to cover and nit sure there would be many good country side runs that way? Any advice appreciated.:)

    no
    20 quid a year aint a lot. Insurance can be cheaper if you're in an owners club. All the branches run events. If your branch isn't doing what you like doing, run your own event and for sure you'll get participants.
    Stands to reason you can't keep all the people happy all the time so don't expect all the members to be your best new friend.
    Better to have a go yourself than wait for someone else to organise your life for you?

    Cheers Curly! :)

    It's up for sale on Fleabay at the minute. No joy so far though. Everyone that likes it can't afford it? Everyone that can afford it doesn't like it? :confused:
    I just keep being offered daft px's?

    I sent a link to my local Triumph dealer to try to get a heads up on why it hasn't sold?

    AMAZINGLY!... They said the price is spot on & they'd have it up for over £7,000.
    They said I just need to find a buyer that likes it as much as I do?
