    So today was the end of an era. I sold my kia van. I bought it in 2016 and it was very cheap and cheerful , the body work had more hits than Elvis. The rego was due next week so up it went on gumtree last night as unregistered project . I received a call this morning from a buyer , we talked about it and he agreed to take it if I could drop it off . Phil offered to follow me up and bring me home, I had a lightbulb moment , I was like I have a van. I will just load my bike in the back and ride it home

    So 70 mins drove to his place , then a 50 min ride home on the zxr

    Thanks Kia , I estimate I picked up over 250 bikes in our time together. One last pic for old times sake , I stopped on the way home for a kebab and the zxr pic was pretty cool.

    I should pick up my newish Toyota van next week

    That's something I'd forget and wonder where the loose bolts came from, then have to put things apart to do it again.. and then twice more for whatever else I forgot...

    My newish / 2nd band van arrived last night , turns out is a super long wheel base hiace which is a huge bonus . We are taking guesses as to how many bodies / bikes we can fit in there

    Also looking at some ideas to jazz it up a bit

    Yeah, I'm NOT volunteering to help sand the finish for a chrome mirror-finish. You're on your own there.

    As for how many bikes you can fit, anything less than 6 and you can take the van back! ;-P
    A mate got a Sprinter, ex-police command centre, you can stand upright and probably fit 4 bikes across and 3 long! You could nearly put a mezzanine floor in!
