FACTORY TOUR TIPS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - GREAT EXPERIENCES -

O Do your re­search

As most are de­mol­ished, find­ing the old factory sites is as much de­tec­tive work as rid­ing. Re­search thor­oughly on­line first as there’s a wealth of in­for­ma­tion and old pic­tures out there and plenty who have done it be­fore.

O Plan your ride

The best way to en­joy, and get the most out of, your ‘her­itage tour’ is to de­cide which places you want to visit and work out a prac­ti­cal route be­tween them. Not­ting­ham and Plum­stead in a day is push­ing it but you can cover six or more in the Birm­ing­ham area eas­ily.

O Tem­per your ex­pec­ta­tions

Let’s be hon­est: not much re­mains. But the bits that do are in­trigu­ing, re­veal­ing and in their own way quite mov­ing, too.
