The Team

Spa are a co­op­er­a­tive. Five own­ers who all love bikes, new and re­stored…


Nick Chesh ire, Sales Ex­pe­ri­ence: 17 years

Favourite route into Wales: the A417 from Glouces­ter to Leomin­ster, with a stop at the open-air Dom’s Bike Stop Café – tasty break­fasts and de­li­cious burg­ers.

Mick Pot­ter, Servicing Ex­pe­ri­ence: 39 years

Favourite lo­cal road: the B4077 be­tween Chel­tenham and Stow-on-the­wold: fields, curves, forests and straights

on my TDM900 or my ’70s Du­cati 250.

Paul Am­bridge, After­sales Ex­pe­ri­ence: 11 years

Best place in Europe to ride: it must be North­ern Spain, where the weather’s warm, the roads are clean, grippy and de­void of

hol­i­day traf­fic.

Rob Pem­ber­ton, Servicing Ex­pe­ri­ence: 30 years

Dream bike build: a Yamaha TZ750 Racer, but I’m busy fet­tling my 20 other

bikes, in­clud­ing a TZR250 2MA, RD250/350 Spe­cial and a TX750.

War­ren Wicks, Parts Ex­pe­ri­ence: 24 years

Type of rider: I like my sports­bikes. I’ve owned var­i­ous GSX˜RS and a 2001 Fire­blade, but my favourite has to be my black GSX˜R1000 K6. Love the midrange.
