1) What famous make of motorcycle was Lawrence of Arabia riding when he was killed in Dorset in 1936?
Most of us are a bit bored and desperate to get out on our motorcycles.
But we thought, if we can't ride them, lets think about them. So here is a little quiz we've put together to give you a motorcycling related activity to do for an hour, perhaps on a Monday evening when you'd normally be at the Club meeting.
Sixty questions related to motorcycling. 1 hour. No cheating (no Google!)!
When you are done, send your answers to us at StevenageAndDMCC@gmail.com and we'll let you know how you got on.
There are no prizes but if we think you've done it without cheating, you might get a mention at this year's annual Dinner Dance, where we will be celebrating our 60th year as a motorcycle Club.
