Every so often we are reminded of the inherent good natured cameraderie found between bikers. And when the shared love of motorbikes brings a whole family together, beautiful things can happen.
This heartwarming video shows how two brothers steal their dad’s beaten up Norton Commando, fix it up without his knowledge, and give it back to him for Christmas. Just as well their dad didn’t start an insurance claim, or there may have been some explaining to do.
If you fancy doing this, don’t forget the classic bike insurance.
In history, many weird and wonderful things have happened. We put man on the moon, won 2 world wars and invented the ASBO, but only now has something happened to challenge the greatness of the above mentioned………………one of us has only gone and got bloody married!!!!!!!
Saturday 12th July – saw Tim and Linda tie the knot in sunny old Kings Lynn.Tim and his new wife Linda have been together for 4 years and it was about bloomin time she tied him down!
For those of you who don’t know, Tim joined us in February 2008 on the quotes department.He now holds the title of being the only bloke on quotes who is married! As a biker himself, it seemed only too perfect to be assigned to this department until of course he came onto the floor and was positioned next to ME!!…unlucky!
The day was filled with happiness and joy…blah blah blah……then came the reception. Tim decided to invite some of his work colleagues, here’s what happened!
All at bikesure wish Linda and Tim a happy life together……good luck Linda!
Now before you all go off on one as to why a guy who works for the dam best bike insurance company in the world has posted a section on cars……..allow me to explain!
As you may well know or may not care, I have been attending numerous motorcycle shows around the UK as part of Bikesure. These have proven to be a success and the feedback has been incredibly positive.
Following on from this the lovely team in marketing then asked me if I would be willing to attend the French Car show at Rockingham. This is an annual show that Adrian Flux are proud to sponsor and as the title suggests, its for owners of French cars. Now you may be thinking that the show was full of “chavs”, loud music, fast driving and beer…..and you would probably be right…….but there was something else…….something I think any hot blooded male would appreciate and one of the main reasons I said yes to the show……………
Not only are these the girls we take to a number of our shows, including the BMF in Peterborough ( see below ) but they actually work for the company in every day jobs, so as you can imagine getting up for work everyday can be a real pain!!
In between me mopping up every ones drawl and picking up their jaws, I was part of a team offering quotes out to the public. I did unfortunately find myself forgetting where I was and asking questions like ” so its a quote on your Peugeot 206, do you have any motorcycle no claims bonus? ” Needless to say I looked a bit of a d**k.
But enough of me talking, I know what you really want to see so I will entertain the masses:
Proof that I was actually doing some work at the show
And finally……check out my pink t-shirt/hat combo……awesome I know!
As part of our relationship with the Suzuki Owners Club, the Bikesure boys and girls will now be accompanying members of the SOC to various bike shows around the country providing motorcycle insurance quotes and info from the Suzuki Owners Club stand.
The first show was the Classic Mechanics at Stafford Showground, and our man Grant was on hand alternately working hard and chatting to the laydees.
I must say that the SOC staff look just the ticket in their new shirts too.
You can look at Grant’s pics at our Flickr. There are lots of classic Suzuki motorbikes, and not a few of the attractive women that Grant tried to charm.
