Welcome to the Pan-Clan
The Honda Pan-European Owners Club, the UK club for the Pan-European (ST1100 and ST1300) motorcycles.

ST1300 Urgent News

Following a near-catastrophic accident, a number of Pan-Clan members report a serious problem with their ST1300's. It relates to the centre clamp underneath the bike where the exhausts meet.

For one member, this was so rotted that it collapsed as he was riding, the rear tyre then hit the clamp as it fell causing a blow-out. Others have checked theirs and found that the clamp has come away in their hands. see picture.

Replacement clamps are relatively cheap, and a lot better than the possible alternative.

 

Update:

Having just had my ST1300 MoT'd, I got a report that the clamps on the silencers were splitting (not the central one that gave the problem above). Having checked all three clamps I have now obtained a set of the 3 clamps required (2 large, one smaller), in stainless steel, from ebay. Cost, including the £1 premium for 1st class delivery (=next day for me) was £17! I was quoted almost £120 by the garage doing the MoT to just replace the 2!!

Scotland's motorcycle safety inititive.

Launching on 17th April 2014 is a marketing campaign aimed at Scottish motorcycle riders. Supported by the Scottish Government and in conjunction with Road Safety Scotland and Police Scotland, this is an inititive to make riding on Scottish roads safer and even more enjoyable.

Although this is a Scottish inititive, many riders from the UK and the continent come to enjoy the roads and scenery of Scotland, and so the Pan-Clan are pleased to support this important campaign.

The Pan European Owners Club ("Pan-Clan")

Established 1993

The Pan European Owners Club ("Pan-Clan") is a UK wide club for owners of the Honda Pan-European models. These are currently the ST-1100 and ST-1300, but we are ever hopeful that Honda are about to launch a replacement model.

The Club is UK wide, but the country is divided into more manageable areas, which can be seen listed in the top left of this page. To see which area you might be in, visit this interactive map.

Each Area has an Area Rep who is responsible for informing all the members in their area about National and Local events that are taking place.

All Areas will have a schedule of ride-outs for each year. You can contact your nearest Area Rep to arrange a "Try before you Buy" where you will be made very welcome to attend one of the area events, and one of their regular meetings too.

Around this page you will see information about the various National Events we organise for the Pan-Clan members (sorry, these are strictly Pan-Clan members only). Elsewhere on the site is the information about how you can join the Pan-Clan. There is also information about the bi-Monthly magazine (PANtasia) which is sent to all members.

If you are not sure which area you might be in, check out the map on the Areas page. As a member of the Pan-Clan you can attend any area meeting, the assignment to an Area Rep is purely so you don't get forgotten! If you live near the border of one of our areas, it might be more appropriate and quicker to visit the adjoining areas meetings. You'll be very welcome wherever you attend.

Other National Events

NEWS Run 2014

The NEWS Run is a National Event open to all members of the Pan-Clan. It is a one day meeting at a location of national interest. Each year one of the areas will opt to organise the NEWS event., and so it moves around the UK. The location for the 2014 event is the National Tramway Museum, Nr Matlock in Derbyshire.


Tickler

Now available on the Tickler page is a link to a short video of the 2011 Tickler to Le Mont Dore, France

The Pan-European is a great bike for touring, and as its name implies, it loves the open roads of Europe. Whilst many Pan-Clan riders have experienced the delights of touring on mainland Europe, many find the idea quite daunting.

If you are one of those, or just fancy a short break in Europe with a group of like minded bikers read on ...


Challenge 2014

There is a lot of enjoyment in going out for a ride on the Pan. But how much more fun is there if you are using it for a bit more than getting from A to B.

The annual Challenge event is a social weekend that includes a 'treasure hunt' on the Saturday. For more details about this event see the Challenge page.


Social Events

Social Events are organised at both a National and Local level. These can range from mid-summer evening runs to some local meeting place; a couple of games of 10-pin bowling; an informal party-night; theatre trips; boat trips. Members will receive information in the National club magazine PANtasia or from their area rep.


International Pan Gathering for 2014

Each year somewhere in Europe is the International Pan Gathering. The event has been held in UK, Austria, Holland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ireland and Norway. The 2013 event was held in France.

This event is open to ALL Pan-European riders, and you don't have to be a member of a club to attend.

In 2014 the event will be held in the resort of Meiringen/Haslital, in the centre of Switzerland. It runs from Wednesday, September 3rd, until Sunday, September 7th, 2014. For more details of the 2014 event, and to book, visit the 2014 Pan Gathering site.
