I first met these 2 brothers some 30 years ago. At the time I was a poor college student with an almost new and lovely Honda CB750 K6, they were my local Honda dealers so I popped in to purchase a GB sticker before setting off with a group of college 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 Premier dealers and one of the best in the UK with a wonderful new premises (which was previously a 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 Mark, Brian and Mike plus the brilliant workshop team of Chuck, Nige, Quiet Darrel and the new snotty nosed kid Ashley. Little Steve Cole is just out of nappies and starting to learn (not much) and new kid on the block IT David has just about learned to switch on the PC…..give him time. Oh and I almost forgot Richard the Spare part. Easily done.
