insurance

I see people asking about getting a reasonable insurance quote for their bikes - some are paying silly money. I just insured my 2008 Harley 1200 Nightster (UK registered) for 93 euros, including breakdown, with AXA. I'm happy with that. :D

french registering a 1976 suzuki kettle

We had a couple of thunder and lightning storms at night, but virtually no rain. Temps around 37 /38 last week, a bit lower this week - quite pleasant really, although I've been working in the garage a lot and that can be a bit much.

french registering a 1976 suzuki kettle

We have been there Corny, last year, where I fell for the red 1940 Ford. Most of the rods I've seen at this show and the bigger stuff like Allasac are either british plated or were registered as standard vehicles when they either were standard or in the old days when FFVE were a bit more lax.
