Joined Sep 11 2011
Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club UK & Ireland
I was a Police Officer in West Midlands Police during the 1970s, then left for pastures new before eventually joining the Prison Service at HM Prison Birmingham (Winson Green) in 1987.
I worked at HMP Birmingham for 15 years before transferring to HMP Hewell Grange open prison (now part of HMP Hewell) in Redditch, Worcestershire. I retired from the Prison Service on 30th September 2012..
I have owned a wide selection of bikes since I started riding in 1968 at the age of 15 (yes, I know it was illegal). Some of the bikes include a 1968 BSA Bantam D14/4, a hand built (not by me)Norton Dominator 99 Cafe Racer, a selection of Lambretta scooters, a CZ250 (don't ask why!), Kawasaki Z650 F4 and GPz900R, a couple of Honda 250N Superdreams and a GL1000 Gold Wing. More recently I owned a Harley XLH1200 Sportster for more than 16 years. My current stable consists of a 2002 Honda ST1100 Pan European and a 2000 Harley FXDX Super Glide Sport.
I joined my local chapter of the Blue Knights, England XI in 2009 and became a member of England II in 2013.
The Blue Knights law Enforcement Motorcycle Club Invite all motorcyclists to take part in a Charity Ride on Sunday 8th July 2018 In Kent to support My Shining Star Charity. Blue Knights England II LEMC has this year chosen My Shining Star as our Charity for the next year. The Charity raises funds for the families of those Children who have been diagnosed with Cancer. On average it costs a family £600 a month to live and when you consider one or both parents may have to give up work that?s a huge amount of money. In the past year My Shining Star have given over £50.000 worth of grants to families.
We have arranged a Ride on the 8th July of around 140 miles across Kent to raise much needed funds. We welcome all motorcyclists, both serving officers and friends and families, as long as you ride a motorcycle.
