TR3OC Landmark Challenge

The theme for our first Landmark Challenge is traditional distance markers, eg. Milestones. The idea is to get you out and about on your bike. There is no excuse because they are everywhere! All you have to do is take a picture of your triple with each Landmark, and submit your entry to the judging panel before the deadline. There is no limit, the winner is the one who enters the most pictures.

If you’d like to share your pictures and ride outs with other members, there is a Forum category dedicated to the Landmark Challenge here.

The criteria for the challenge:

Any traditional mile/kilometre marker

  • All pictures must include a pushrod Triple engined bike
  • Pictures can be submitted in electronic or hard format
  • Please include the location in the name of any digital photos
  • Write location on back of hard copies of photographs

This is open to all members, including international

Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places

Closing date- 31st October 2015

Frank Perris

Frank PerrisFrank Perris
The club recently received the sad news of the death of Frank Perris. Frank wasn’t directly connected with BSA/Triumph triples, in fact he ran the team of one the closest domestic competitors – the Norton F750 and Production racers that provided close competition.

Frank had been a successful club, national and international racer, typically riding Manx Nortons amongst a variety of British bikes of the era, but he is perhaps best known for his successful works rides for Suzuki in the 1960’s.

Many of the Norton team managed by Frank also rode triples (Mick Grant and Dave Croxford to name two), and perhaps inevitably, Frank was re-united with them at Beezumph rallies, where he was a regular attendee for many years.

The TR3OC send their condolences to his family and friends.
