Newsletter of the Mighty South London Triumph Owners Motorcycle Club


Hi folks!


I hope you all had a happy Christmas and a good start into the New Year.


So far 2006 has been a year of a lot of work and long hours in the office (yes, I do have a daytime job). In view of this I had to restrict the format of this TT issue to the absolute minimum. Apologies for that.


I understand that some guys are once again planning to go to Namur / Belgium for the local festival. This will be a trip for modern bikes and more of a ‘get there in your own time’ thing rather than an organised trip.


Please contact Kelvin or Peter G. for details.


Up-Coming Events:


28’Jan’06 – 05’Feb’06

MCN Show @ Alexandra Palace


28’Jan’06, Autojumble

Kempton Park Autojumble for those of you looking for that exhaust pipe in mint condition, some new cables, new light bulbs or just a little bit of entertainment.


04’Feb’06, Club Party

MSL are having a party!

A nice opportunity to bring your better half, friends & family and introduce them to the people you spend your Tuesday evenings with. Grub will be free and there will also be a disco.

Has anybody got a suggestion for February?
