Jon "Dino" Sore (Webmaster/Online Registration)
Hi, my name is Jon Sore although everybody knows me as Dino (pronounced deano!). I work and live in London with my clan. As a family, we enjoy bikes and the biking community as two out of three of my children also own and ride bikes. I joined the RBLR in 2008 and this will be my eleventh year running the AMRR although I have now taken a step back from the frontline and passed the UK organisation over to Si.
I was a serving member of the Armed Forces having received the Queen's shilling for the best part of 38 years, having been 'press ganged' in 1980!. I have seen active service in the Falklands, the Gulf and Northern Ireland over the years but due to a serious motorcycle accident in 2007, I have been confined to a desk job! I ride a Bandit 1200S and also own a Marauder 800, Zypher 750, CBR 600 and Jawa 350 classic.
I offered my assistance to Bob and Norman for the first AMRR (formerly known as AWC2009) and somehow won the title of 'The Third Wheel'!
I have many reasons for wanting to take part in this ride; primarely to express my gratitude and give remembrance to all those that paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy today. I also like to think that I'm riding as a representative for the majority of decent people in this country to show our American cousins along with our Canadian and New Zealand brothers & sisters that we continue to remember and that we do care about those that have fallen in pursuit of freedom. Last but not least, I use this ride to remember and pay respect to our own troops and those of all our allies past and present that have, and continue, to lay down their lives.
