I've not posted for ages, I've been a touch busy with other bikes/hobbies/diy and life. I've also not ridden my XR for some time due to pain in my right foot as I found kicking it over was far from comfortable, even with an enduro boot on.
Today I go the results from the doctor...

Just a quickie about the legalities of riding a 125 to Spain and back (via ferry ports to Santander). I have a full lisence (restricted for another 4 months) and cant afford to upgrade yet. There's bog all wrong with Baby V, so intend to ride her from Dover to Portsmouth and then from...
If I changed my Alp for a 125 for a few years, would my insurance No Claims Bonus be maintained?
