Would you buy a motorcycle from this guy? Er well YES….I have, many many times.

I first met these 2 brothers some 30 years ago. At the time I was a poor college student with a lovely Honda CB750 K6 and they were my local Honda dealers, so I popped in to fit a GB plate before setting off with a group of friends to France for a holiday. We got chatting about France and bikes, and Dave got his 750 F1 and came with us!. The rest, as they say, is history…..

They are now Yamaha and Suzuki dealers and one of the best in the UK with a wonderful new premises (which was previously a Vauxhall car dealership), and they sell a great range of clothing as well as new and used bikes and spares. I travelled over with my trusty Vito van from Roma recently to return my MT-09 and collect a lovely new blue Yamaha Super Tenere 1200, so I took a few snaps and here they are. They also have an amazing collection of historic Honda motorcycles (about 45 bikes) and Dave is always happy to show them.

The team is led by Martin (the large fellow) and his main men are Brian and Mike plus the brilliant workshop team of Chuck, Nige, Quiet Darrel and the new kid Ashley. Little Steve is just out of nappies and starting to learn (not much) and new kid on the block David has just about learned to switch on the PC…..give him time. Oh and I almost forgot Richard the Spare part. Easily done.
