It is under a load of blankets hidden away at the back of my garage... I thought about it today as this year it will be MOT and tax free... I will pull it out for a quick clean and a check over.... If I was to fit a battery it would be good to go again. It was last used in 2018 at the LC club Welsh rally. Unfortunately the bike no longer belongs to the club....

The bike is tucked away in my garage and last week I sent the v5 to DVLA to make it tax and MOT exempt. Its now road legal and ready to go. I have it on my insurance as well so I may take it out this year. Unfortunately the bike has no club insurance and the club no longer owns the bike. I will upload a photo later when I pull it out for a polish.
