39 of the 40 bikes in our collection have now had their first rides in 2017. Only the Pannonia still to go - but this has just returned from the painter, so first ride in June.

Taking the Vanquish into the DVSA testing station in Watford today (photo taken inside the building).
After 2 hours of thorough testing we got the happy news that on first attempt we had succeeded. The Vanquish now has technical approval to be on UK roads. Congratulati...

Our Vanquish V8 motorcycle got its first public outing in front of a good crowd in surprisingly nice weather at the 2WheelsMiklos open day. The 7 litre motor made its presence felt - notwithstanding the baffling & Super Trapps installed in advance of Wednesday's SVA te...
