DSC_4715 (Small)Meet the author: John Moffat has maintained an interest in all forms of motorcycle sport since his formative years and is an acknowledged authority, particularly in the sport of motorcycle trials. An official observer at trial events from the age of seven, he was however interested in all motorcycle sport and the people who not only competed, but were involved in organising events. In 1974, John began his own competitive trials career on a 250cc Bultaco Sherpa and has maintained a particular affinity to that marque of machine ever since, even although he has owned a variety of trials machines over the years. An accomplished commentator and interviewer at motorcycle shows and events, his knowledge of the sport is somewhat encyclopaedic, but he openly admits that it’s impossible to know everything about the sport. Married to Jean, with two trials riding sons, David and Steven, he is a former director and chairman of the Scottish ACU trials committee. Moffat is equally happy being in the thick of organising, as well as riding trials motorcycles when time allows. Coming from a motorcycle sporting background, his late father T. Arnott Moffat being SACU Secretary for 32 years, John is indeed privileged to have many of Scottish, British and World class competitors, importers and personalities, past and present in his telephone directory, there are few he has not struck up a friendship with over the years.
