British Motor Bike Owners

British Motor Bike Owners

BRIMBO is a club for local bikers interested in riding their bikes and socialising.  Founded as a group for keeping British bikes on the road, the club now welcomes members with all makes and ages of bikes, although many of the shows we attend favour older marques.

Membership is open to all, with no restriction on type age or nationality of bike, though a lot of members have a strong interest in British and classic bikes. Newcomers are always welcome and a year's subscription, if you decide to join, is just £12 a year. Renewals are due in January. Subscription for members who join in the last 3 months of the year will also cover for the subsequent year. Join us now »


2020 Joining/renewal form

A committee meeting is held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 2.30pm Nov - March and 11am April - Oct.  Everyone is welcome and the committee is made up of all members who attend on the day. Face to face committee meetings are currently on hold due to Covid restrictions.

If you have any articles or photographs for publishing in the next newsletter, please submit these to the Newsletter Editor by the 20th of the month.



BRIMBO monthly meetings are held at Billingford Horseshoes, IP21 4HL on the A143 Harleston Road, close to the Norfolk/Suffolk border and about 5 miles East of Diss.

Meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month, when the bi-monthly newsletter is distributed.

Norfolk Blood Bikes Talk 5th Feb 2020

We had a very interesting talk from Jon Doran of Norfolk Blood Bikes explaining the work that the group does and the complex organisation needed in the background to keep things running and to get riders and products to where they need to be. He also provided details of two Triumphs they are currently selling:


Triumph No 1: 

Triumph No 2:






Thank you to everyone who came to the Lopham meet. It's really appreciated that people supported our local event. We had over 400 bikes on the day, helped by some dry weather. Norfolk Blood Bikes had a good day with plenty of visitors to their stand. We had a good number of autojumble stalls and many people were able to find their elusive parts, even a couple of motorcycles were sold.  Trophies were handed out to some very deserving winners. There was plenty of food with some delicious ice creams from Mike's van to finish off. We were be able to donate £500 to the Norfolk Blood Bikes from the proceeds of the day, presented to Fleet Manager Jon Doran at the club meeting on Wednesday 7th August.
