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 As­so­ci­a­tion’s 70-year his­tory, and most of his pre­de­ces­sors have been ei­ther for­mer TT rac­ing or mo­tor­cy­cle in­dus­try greats so it is re­garded as be­ing a won­der­ful per­sonal hon­our.

Mor­ley spoke of his new po­si­tion: “I still have no clue as to how or why I was cho­sen, al­though I have been an 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.”

Don Mor­ley has achieved much in his ca­reer as a sports and world pho­to­graphic cor­re­spon­dent and is very well re­spected in the in­dus­try. Don Mor­ley is seen here on the right ac­cept­ing his in­vesti­ture.
