You will have seen that I had my Daughters 125cc bike for sale. This was all part of an evil plan to get her off of two wheels and onto four (who is a hypocrite ?)  :shy:

Anyway, the plan was laced with a hefty dose of blackmail and this is her new ride.

Very nice indeed.

But,

You're not going to get a very big bike in that...
Say something like a small 125cc may fit  :stirpot:

Why? Both the Dragonlady and I drive Vivaro Vans as our daily transport  :shrug:  Other than a Multi-Storey, they park anywhere a Car does

Nice...  :thumb:
Agree with you regarding every day use as the wheel base size is similar to an average 4x4,  Some 4x4s are even bigger. When I finally grow up I would love to own a converted VW transporter surf van .

I've never understood the VW following, they go for ridiculous money with ridiculous mileage.

I agree with you Fat rat about the VW  following. Little rat's van is very nice.

There may be one or two in the larger towns and cities, but as I work in Central London I generally avoid those places.

I have a LWB VW T4 surf bus as my only 4 wheeler, no real issue with it as a daily drive either... though I have installed rear view cameras (2off).
