Members may be aware that N.W. London branch member Chris North was seriously injured in Sweden a couple of months ago. He suffered a high spinal fracture among other injuries and still needs breathing support. (See NW London report in your latest Nacelle)
Chris has been an active member of TOMCC for a very long time and I have enjoyed bumping into him at rallies and meetings since we were both young men.
His wife Sue had to borrow £14 000 to transport him back to this country. A friend has started a crowd funding effort to help with the cost. The JUST GIVING page showed the total just over £4000 when I donated but that is still a long way short of the amount borrowed By Sue to get Chris home.

RIP Percy Tait 1929 - 2019
It saddens me to announce that Percy Tait died on Sunday 17th November, aged 90, apparently from a stroke.
Percy was a Triumph development test rider for many years, covering huge mileages on new designs from the first Bonneville to the Trident and even the Tina.
Whilst riding for Triumph Percy stood on the podium at both TT and GP races. He is one of only 14 riders to have ever had a podium finish in a GP at the age of 40 years or more. Rossi recently joined this select group.
After the early 1970s hiatus at Triumph with the sit in Percy went to Suzuki as a development rider and racer with some success. Later he set up a Suzuki car dealership. The other string to his bow was as a sheep farmer and he was well known in rare breeds circles breeding and showing with some success.
