Park in the road at the back of the museum or in the car park, currently free (13 Jan 20). But as most places it is closed at the ...

Re: SORN your bikes

SORN'd 2 bikes but leaving 1 road ready, thinking about SORNing my car as the wife's is low emission taxfree so no point in SORNing.

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Well done, AV8 then down the Fosse, surprised the Monkey did not disappear in some of the puddles. At least it is easy to foot if required, must have a go on my ST90, but will wait until it is a bit drier.
