Hinckley Triumph Owners Club
The Hinckley Triumph Owners Club (HTOC) is exactly what is sounds – a members club for owners of Triumph motorcycles made during the Hinckley era, that is, since 1991.
The HTOC was founded in 2014 and is run entirely by volunteers on a completely non-profit basis.
We have been rapidly growing ever since with over 10000 followers on our Facebook pages and over 1400 full members, spread all over the world. We have branches in Germany, Austria, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. Within the UK, the club is divided into 16 regions but this is just for ease of communications and to keep things local.
As with everything these days we have a comprehensive website and Facebook pages (both a main page and region specific pages). Region 14 is dedicated to the North East of England and the regional contacts are Andy Hammill and John Bamber (who you can reach via the region 14 page), although you’re free to join as many of the regions’ pages as you like.
There is always a bit of craic on the various pages, where you can share a joke, photos, get advice and recommendations or even learn something you may have missed about Triumph. We also have a Facebook page dedicated to the buying and selling of anything bike related.
In addition to joining the Facebook pages, we do offer full membership for those who want to take advantage of the many additional benefits that are available. Full lifetime membership is only £20, although you can, if you wish, pay £10 each year to support clubs funds and get your ‘year patch’. In return, we offer monthly meetings (held on the 1st Thursday of each month, at the Frog and Ferret in Spennymoor), we also run day rides around the region, which are held both on Saturdays and Sundays to give everyone a chance of attending. Nationally, the club arranges weekend get-togethers, which are open to all members. This year, these include:
The Trumpet in Ledbury, 1-3 June
Squires Café, Sherburn-in-Elmet, 20-22 July
The Plough in Lower Beeding, 25-27 August
There is also a full range of quality merchandise available. Details of this and full details and tickets for all of the events can be found on the website.
We’re very informal and really just a group of like-minded people who enjoy riding and prattling on about their bikes. I know I sound biased but it is worth having a look at the Facebook page and website to see what we’re about. There’s no pressure and we hope to see you soon.

The owner's clubs are supported by Triumph Newcastle, but they are proud to be promoted entirely independently and without prejudice.
