Joined TOMCC in 1981 and have been on the committee since 1988, serving as secretary, treasurer, scribe and now chairman. I have a 1980 T140ES and a BSA Royal Star on the road and have restored my old faithful Bonnie which I bought in 1980.

David Malam  – Club Treasurer – Events Coordinator

I have owned a Triumph T140v since I was 17, in 2018 I decided to get my first modern Triumph, a T100 Black, which  I have now exchanged for a 2020 T120 Black, which is my current ride, along side my 1973 T140v.

I have been a member of Wirral TOMCC since 2012, taking up the position of treasurer in 2017.

Mike Bartlett – Club Secretary

Joined the club in 2004 and took on the role of secretary in 2013.

I still have the Bonneville Triton I originally built up in 1971. I also have a Hurricane and a collection of Hinckley machines, why not.

Peter Griffiths – Club Scribe

I bought my first Triumph in 1971 and still have three at the moment, not the original one though. Got a 78 Meriden and two Hinckley’s, 04 Sprint on sorn and an 11 Tiger that is in use a lot.

Been a member of the club for many years off and on, about 30 I think but worked abroad for many years so may have skipped a few years.

I got my first bike, a BSA C15, in 1972 and have never been without a bike since then.

I’ve been a member of the club for a little over 5 years now and since retiring on new years Day 2021 I have been able to attend most of the club runs throughout the last year.

Carl Shepherd – Club Member

I’ve been riding for 41 years. Started with fizzy. Now on bike no 78. Ride all year, commuting and holiday. European trip each year for the last 20 years. Had about 10 triumphs, have 3 now. Tridents and tiger sport.

Rick Malley – Club Member

I was a keen biker from my teens until my 40s when work & family commitments meant that I had to sell up & take a break. In May 2019 I retired & within a month had bought my current ride, a shiny 2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1600, & joined the Wirral TOMCC.

Keith Minshull – Club Member

I join the club in Dec 2018 after buying my first Triumph (2016 Tiger Sport). I’m swapping that for a brand new Tiger Sport tomorrow! I’m 50, from Ellesmere Port and for work I manage a team for Veolia that deal with chemical & environmental emergencies. I’m hoping to add a modern classic Triumph to my toy box in 2021.

Gary Darch  – Club Member

I first joined the TOMCC in 1982, when I bought my first T140 and met up with the WTOMCC sometime around then when they met in the Mersey Arms by Victoria Dock in Birkenhead. I had been an active member for a number of years and been heavily involved in establishing the annual summer show.

I have owned many Triumphs over the years which included many T140 Bonnies. I now have a stable of a number of Triumphs which includes an original T160 from 1975 with 12000 miles on the clock. I have owned this bike for 25 years and has been to the Manx a number of times over the years. To me, a bike is a bike and I have and still do own and ride many different bikes from different manufactures. I will always be a proud member of the WTOMCC no matter what.

Paul Ashes – Club Member

Joined the Branch about 20 years ago owning various Triumphs along the way.
Bought my Tiger xrt 800 new this year just in time for LockDown.
Can’t wait for our Rallies and Camping Events to restart so we can gather around the Campfire and have a good old catch up.

Neil Town – Club Member

Malcolm D Jones – Club Member

Speed Triple 955i I’ve been riding bikes since I was 17, all Japanese, so when I went semi-retired in 2019, I thought it was about time to try a Triumph, so I opted for a Speed Triple, and joined the club. I’ve known a few of the members for quite a few years.

Terry Radford – Club Member

I am a mot tester/mechanic who had a bike since I was 17 all different Triumph, AJS 350, Honda Goldwing, and various other Hondas, Yamaha and Suzuki, worked on bikes and cars I may be able to arrange a service day where I work once this lockdown ends if there is any interest, would be a weekend thing.

Mark Rowlands – Club Member

My Triumph T120R . Back in 2014 at the annual Bike show at the Thatch, I was lucky enough to win the best Triumph on the show and Bill Smith presented the trophy. There are photos on the website of my lucky day. Sadly got none on my phone. Let’s hope that next year we can hold another show.

Dave Ellis – Club Member

My first big bike was a Triumph T150 which I acquired around 1980, after dabbling with a T140 with a Weslake 8 valve head I went down the Japanese super bike route until the early 2000’s since then I’ve only had Triumphs, currently I own a Triumph T140, T150 and a Tiger 800xc.

I only joined the club in 2021.

Pete Leneghan – Club Member

I’ve been riding since 1982 motocross and then from 1991 on the road . I’m currently on my 3rd triumph and this one is staying. I’ve been a member of the club for two years and look forward to spending more time out in the road with them.

Dave Levene  Club Member

I got my first bike when I was 16, a Suzuki TS50ER, but that only lasted 6 months until it was written off when some numpty in a Mini drove into the back of me. Undeterred I’ve carried on riding since, I had various bikes, Japanese 250 and 200s when I was a teenager, then a Harley Sportster, followed by a Triumph Tiger and then a Sprint.

When we had our first child I sold the solos and bought an old BMW K100 sidecar outfit which did me for a few years in different incarnations until I got my first Rocket 3 in 2006 and put my sidecar on it. I joined the TOMCC at this point.

I’m on my second Rocket 3 now, still with sidecar.
