..........and after that save up for a lockup/garage facility. Nothing eats motorcycles more than being left outside for long periods - (although in sunny Brighton that might not be such an issue so long as yer no on the seafront :D

Also extra space to store bicycles :D :D

+1 for GT85. Essentially WD40 does the same job but breaks down more quickly. Oxford Rain covers are good as they've got ventilation holes and made of a breathable fabric.

Looking for garage space in Mid Sussex area keep most of two wheeled collection at parents :-(

LIDL do bike covers too, but they come apart at the seams if you let them get hammered by the wind.

Insurance quotes do seem very hit amd miss at the moment. Have you tried MCE Insurance? They were loads cheaper anyone else for my scooter.

MCE = £320 (FC)
Devitt is the cheapest so far at £205 and thats with no extra legal/breakdown/helmet/leathers cover.

i can get a quote down to £192 but thats with a £500 voluntary excess.....
