Renowned international photographer and trials rider, Don Morley has taken over as the next Honorary President of The Association Of Pioneer Motorcyclists (APMC).
Ken Blake who is the APMC’s immediate past Hon President and now the new Chairman welcomed Don to his new post at a special investiture meeting of the Association.
Don is the 49th Honorary President in the Associations’ 70 year history, and most of his predecessors have either been former TT racing or motorcycle industry greats, so it is regarded as being a wonderful personal honour.
Morley spoke to Trial Guru: “I still have no clue as to how or why I was chosen although I have been a APMC committee member in the past. The APMC is in fact a life membership association open to anyone who has held a motorcycle licence for fifty years or more, but is in fact stuffed full of former competitive riders like ourselves”.
