While safe riding and the proper equipment can make a huge difference in the outcome of any accident, having good insurance coverage is always the next line of protection."
Collections & Photo Albums
No Room In The Shed - A quote from the website: "Anybody who has motorcycles or any hobby which needs a workshop will have said at one time or another 'it's no good I've got to get a bigger shed'. I remember as kids, my mates and I searching for old cycle parts and building bicycles together in the backyard or the corner of a shed if it was raining. The same holds true nowadays that the shed, however big it is, is never big enough..."

In Search of The Ultimate Two Wheel Classic - A quote from the website: "In the near future "In Search of The Ultimate Classic Motorcycle" will be a television show where host Alan Masters will team up with fellow motorcycle lovers across the country in search of rare bikes hiding in collections, barns or garages.
