Neil Prescott

Head Road Captain

I have been riding since the age of 17, passing my bike test several years before my car driving test, much to the annoyance of my parents. I have ridden with a few years off when children came along.

I have owned Japanese, German, British and a while back bought into the USA dream. There are several that stick in my mind; a silver Honda Super Dream that I had to sell in order to get a car; a BMW F650 that was indestructible and so easy to clean and a Triumph Thunderbird Sport that with sports pipes sounded like a Spitfire plane.

Having always dreamed of owning a Harley I regularly went to Riders and just happened to be in the shop when a Nightrain Softail was being unpacked and decided to make that leap. Having never kept a bike more than 2 or 3 years I owned that Nightrain for 7 years before owning a couple of road kings. My current bikes are Street Glide and an Iron 883.

After 2 years of the Nightrain I joined the Chapter and initially was a little wary of the whole patch and pin stuff; took the plunge attending ride outs, rallies and tour and have even picked up some pathes and pins along the way.

Without a doubt, after buying the Harley, the best thing that I have done is to join the Chapter. I have been lucky to travel with the Chapter all over England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, travelled to France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia and USA twice.

During my time in the chapter I have been a Road Marshal, Road Captain and was treasurer for 7 years until 2023 when I became the Head Road Captain. I have had a brilliant 15 years and am really keen to keep up the high standards of rides and destinations that I have been lucky to experience.

The best way to get to find out about the chapter is to join us on the rides and trips away. Have a look at the events in the calendar and I look forward to seeing you there.
