This looks really good. We will take a look nearer the time.

Off topic I know but are motorcycles exempt from the London congestion tax?

Thanks.  I've driven a car a couple of times in London.  Doubt I'll ever get lucky enough to ride a Trophy there.

In the past I have rdden into London lots and no congestion charge (I think it is because they use forward cameras not because of lack of congestion caused) and always found a parking spot in a motorcycle bay.  I was pleasantly surprised the other day in Reading with big motorbike only bays and only me parked in it and you could use the bus lanes.  London said at one point they were going to trial motor bikes in bus lanes but I am not sure if they ever did.
