Being located where it is, it has brilliant access and apparently has excellent parking facilities.  I shall have to pop down there sometime soon and have a nose round 😀

Here’s an online copy of their latest catalogue, just in case you fancy a nose.. (well, Christmas is just round the corner!!!)

Oh and talking of Christmas, they even do a Christmas Wish List you can print off and give to those closest to you 😀

More Bikes From Motorcycle Live 2010

December 8, 2010

As ya know one of the GREAT things about Motorcycle Live is being able to sit on bikes and try them out for size so I did!!!!!!

Here I am on the Ninja 😀

As you can see I was able to totally flat foot on both sides when sitting on it.  I found it felt quite slim as well!  All well and good when you’re only 5′ 3″ tall!!!

Next up is me on the CBR600.  Sat on this one I was only able to get the balls of both feet on the floor which quite surprised me considering how I felt on the Fireblade!

Here I am on the Fireblade 😀  I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I could get both feet flat on the floor on the Blade.  I wasn’t expecting it to be as small as it is, gawd knows how big blokes manage to ride it comfortable. I felt like it fitted me like a glove!

After the Urban Tiger colour scheme I personally think the HRC colours are the next best.  I just loved that bike and after riding my ’95 Fireblade it felt so tiny.  I may just have to look out for one ina  few years time 😀

The photo which makes me giggle the most is the next one!  I’m only little ( 5′ 3″!!!) and have said for almost 2 years that I’d love a crosser of some sort but being as little as I am I reckon I’ll have a few issues!  Yer I know that riding crossers off road is different than riding on the street but you still have to stop sometime without falling over, and therein lies my problem.  The crossers I saw at the show seemed to have seat heights that were mostly about the level of my waist 😦

Until we found this one 😀

Finally one I can fit on!!! 😀

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live 2010 – Day 4

December 1, 2010

Day 4 a the show see’s MCN featuring bike customisation..  I’ll quite freely admit to being dissapointed with this particular segment (although I’m horribly biased 😉 ) as the hard work carried out in the sheds and garages around the country to build the bikes in the Custom Xtreme stand weren’t even shown.  Only a few shots of some of the bikes on the Carole Nash ‘Britains Got Biking Talent’ were seen (Nice one Steve! owner of the MT01 fighter), and even then, only for a few seconds at the beginning of the segment.

BOO HISS!!!!!!

To me customisation is all about getting out in your shed or garage and making things BY HAND and not buying factory made bits to change the look of your Harley!!!!  Sheesh!
