Committee Member Biographies
Linz Foody: After riding pillion with my husband for a good six years, I passed my bike test in 2006, and bought my first bike – Ernie (yes, I name my bikes), an er6n – in early 2007. Ernie was my trusty steed on many a trip round Scotland and mainland Europe and to and from rallies till I felt the need for something physically bigger and with more power. Ernie was replaced in 2012 with Bert, my magnificent Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport who, in turn, was replaced in June 2016 by Wilf, who is Bert’s identical twin. I’ve been a MAG member since 2000 and an active member of Hudds MAG since 2010 when I took on the role of Dealer Liaison. I became Vice Rep in 2012, and have been Rep since 2014. I marshal at the 3 Yorkshire MAG rallies (Into The Valley, Farmyard Party and Yorkshire Pudding), usually on the gate, so if you’ve been I will have welcomed you in, and if you’ve not been to any of the rallies yet, do come along and say hello!
Glennys Holland: I started being into bikes 34 years ago (eek!) I started off on a Yamaha YB100 then, having passed my test just before my 18th birthday, I swapped it for a Kawasaki KH 250. Then, after an accident I didn’t get another bike for a few years until I felt the need to be back on two wheels. I had an ER5 and I now have Virgil my Yamaha XV 535, which is ideal for my 5ft 1 ½” ness – yes the ½” is important. I joined MAG with my other half 3 years ago and am in my 2nd year as Treasurer at Hudds MAG. You will usually see me selling raffle tickets and helping you part with your pennies wherever possible.
David Denton: Bio to follow …
Andy Foody: Razzing round from about the age of 12 years during my Irish summer holidays on this little beaut of a Honda you see pictured was my introduction to powered two wheelers. Then, onto off roaders, I was a relative latecomer to tarmac. I was always exposed to bikes owned by my friends but never felt the “urge”.
I passed my test “because I could” with little intention of getting a bike. Very quickly, I got lured in and splashed out on a black 600 Bandit, from there I moved on to a 955i Tiger and then the persuasive powers of Moto Guzzi slapped me about the face. I am now on my 5th Guzzi and currently own two! It is important that bikers have a representation in Parliament and at a local level to look after our rights to ride which is why I joined MAG. I enjoy my annual fortnight’s holiday riding round foreign climes, I marshal at Yorkshire MAG events and generally enjoy all things motorcycling. Think on and join MAG – Freedom isn’t Free.
