Tansha June 2020

The June issue has been written, collated, subbed and edited under the most extraordinary circumstances within living memory. The Covid19 virus has fundamentally changed the very fabric of our lives. Hopefully, by the time this issue reaches everyone the situation will have eased but these are unquestionably strange and worrying times. On the front of this Tansha are your new MAG cards. Please keep them safe and look at MAG’s website for exactly what your affiliated membership entitles you to. Oh, and please be aware the number on the MAG card IS NOT your VJMC membership number so please don’t quote it when making enquiries about VJMC services. With the current situation there’s a very obvious absence of events which, in turn, impacts upon copy available to run. Therefore, the committee has put pen to paper and bikes in camera to, hopefully, supply you all with some alternative reading material. If it does nothing else it will hopefully demonstrate that those that help run the club are similarly afflicted with this strange desire to own more old motorcycles that is reasonably unhealthy!

As we go to press the Annual Rally and AGM have been tentatively rescheduled for the Bank Holiday Weekend at the tail end of August. However, please note this date is not set in stone and, like pretty much everything else, subject to change and/or variation. We’re aiming for that date but obviously there are no guarantees. The August issue of Tansha will hopefully be able to clarify the situation but for up-to-the-minute news we’ll be making all and any announcements on the club website and Facebook pages nearer the time. Some members have been asking about the Ts & Cs of advertising within Tansha and apparently can’t find them(!) so as a one off we’ve brought them right to the front of the magazine, where, hopefully, they are more prominent. Our Opinions page has been somewhat underpopulated of late so if you have something on your mind relevant to the classic scene please tell us what makes you smile, winds you up, etc. This is ‘your’ page so please feel free to say something.
To end on a positive note in these rather glum times it’s heartwarming to hear that not every business within our particular world is shut. Unithread have been working flat out through the lockdown supplying thread inserts to companies making ventilators for our NHS. Well done to all involved! If you have a lockdown/Covid19 story that’s bike related why not tell our members in August’s issue.

Stay safe  everyone!  Steve Cooper ~ Tansha Editor
