Doing miles

For those of you that missed it, we made a little video in 2013 highlighting some of our best trips so far in my Manx buggy. Roads traveled include the UK, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany. Don’t be afraid to put some miles on yours..

Buggy ready for MOT

Results at Last..

After many years of persevering all the hard work finally paid off, I set myself a dead-line earlier in the year and managed to get the buggy back on the road again. It passed its first MOT in 8 years first time and the only advisories were related to the headlamp aim, I forgot the…
