Performance Bikes (UK) - - The Garage -

‘The sink and tiles came out of a skip and I plumbed it in my­self. Hav­ing a sink in your garage is es­sen­tial as it stops you get­ting dirty hands all over the house and an­noy­ing the wife by turn­ing all the bath tow­els black!’ it is from a Honda dealer as you can’t buy them. It cel­e­brates 20 years of the Blade and I ab­so­lutely love it. You can find re­ally good quirky things on eBay if you search hard. I missed out on a gen­uine Honda il­lu­mi­nated sign the other week.

John signed it and marked the 130mph lap speed as that was the model of bike he set it on.
