15% Discount for ACU Members at Bike Stop
Few clothing and accessory outlets can boast such fantastic surroundings and welcoming staff as Bike Stop in Old Town Stevenage. Established for over 30 years, the seven well-stocked showrooms are elegantly accommodated in a Grade II-listed building on the High Street. It’s like a real-life Tardis, so much bigger than it looks from the outside – just take a look at www.bikestop.co.uk/showroom and see Dougie Lampkin taking a tour through all of it, upstairs as well on his bike. The Bike Stop team prides itself on the fact that they’re all bikers, and none of the team of trained sales staff are on commission, so their only motivation is to ensure you leave with the right products and advice. If you’re interested in Dainese’s new airbag range, D Air Racing the new D-Air Street system, you’ve come to the right place. Bike Stop’s reputation and expertise mean that it is the UK’s number one D-Air dealer, selling more than anyone else. As the oldest and longest serving Dainese store they have one of the largest stocks of Dainese stock in the UK plus they also stock everything from Arai, AGV and Shoei helmets to the RST range plus Daytona and Sidi boots and gloves from Dainese, Knox and Rukka. Then theres soft and hard luggage from Kriega and Givi. They also offer a full made to measure service, repairs and tailoring including logos for suits!
They have recently been one of the first shops of its type in the country to be approved by the Trading Standards with their “Buy with confidence” scheme and have just been awarded “Gold Merchant” by Feefo the 100% independent web survey company for all their on line sales.
If you’re planning on stocking up, there’s free parking right outside the showroom, and if you’re a bit parched on arrival a free cup of Lavazza coffee and a homemade cake will no doubt perk you up before you lose yourself in the seven showrooms, totalling over 3000 square feet of display space.
Specifically for the ACU, Bike Stop will offer 15% to ACU licence holders BUT only the actual holder. You must just have a valid ACU Licence and share with us the member/licence number and expiry date.
Specialist Breakdown Assistance specifically created for ACU members
MotoRescue is a breakdown and recovery service for motorcycle enthusiasts where simply missing a race competition is not an option. In the event that your vehicle breaks down en route to a race event that you are competing in MotoRescue will get your vehicle and your passengers to the event and home again if a repair cannot be carried out whilst you are your race meeting. The scheme was developed by Autohome Assistance, a motor club that celebrated 40 years of service this year, in conjunction with the ACU.
This breakdown scheme is available for cars, vans, 7.5 ton vehicles and trailers. For every membership MotoRescue makes a donation to the ACU Benevolent Fund. This scheme is also offered at discounted rates to all ACU members. When the race is on you will always see the chequered flag with MotoRescue. Autohome MotoRescue are proud major sponsors of the ACU Motocross venue - Milton Park Northamptonshire.

Personal Transponder Deal for Riders and Clubs/Centre
The ACU Board of Directors have been working closely with HS Sports and MYLAPS Sports Timing to provide a suitable package deal for both riders and centres/clubs. HS Sports and MYLAPS can offer the regular MX transponder at the price of £212.50 + vat or there is the option of the new MX Flex Transponder.
The new MX Flex Transponder is a MYLAPS transponder which is subscription based, after paying for the initial purchase and activation at £73 + vat for the first 12 months. At the end of the twelve months period the transponder will need to be reactivate for a further 12 months, connect it to the MYLAPS website and pay a yearly subscription fee of 53euros approx.
HS Sports have also produced two different packages for the clubs, centres and promoters to run the system. The packages include all the equipment required to run the system. The ACU Board of Directors are conscious that some Centres/Clubs may have difficulty in funding the overall cost of a transponder system and therefore on the provision of an appropriate application for funding, the Board will consider on a case by case basis the possibility of an interest free loan or a favourable low rate percentage loan tailored to the needs of the Organisner.
Any Centres/Clubs wishing to apply for funding should contact Gary Thompson at the ACU and anybody wishing to purchase the system or transponder should contact HS Sports on 01260 275708
