  1. Damp Garage or Open Car Port?

    Africa Twin
    Hi there, Well its winter again here in northern Germany. Bloody freezing and damp.

The bike gets a coating of moisture in the...

    Dates & prices out now , usual high entrance & car parking charges & this year they've returned to charging extra for the motor X displays in separated hall. I was going to give it a go this year but not wanting to prebook it works out quite expensive buying tickets on the door. Ian
