It's a sad, sad day, so it is. I got a nasty letter from the Government telling me that, shock horror, my Triumph Tiger Cub, aka Cubbie (they didn't say the aka...bit) is not showing on the vehicle insurance database. My options were to purchase some insurance for it ASAP or SORN it. Or I would be fined! Well I didn't fancy the fine and seeing as I've just had to tax the car, and last month saw me shucking out tax and insurance for the snow-busting-4x4 (which, incidentally, is a bit redundant in these bizarre March weather conditions; 18degrees C here today), I opted for the free option, to SORN my beloved little Cubbie. And that came just after I'd told Ex-Pressy Bill that Cubbie would soon be out on the roads for a spin in this lovely Scottish sunshine.
I feel a little ashamed but all the time and effort I'm putting into The Cub Mag at the moment means I don't have much free time to actually ride my bikes. And besides, it's better to spread the cost of these things, don't want all the motoring bills landing on the door mat in the winter.
Talking of The Cub Mag....issue one is looking good, just waiting for the Editor to write her few bits then it'll ready for a proper proof read. Still a little bit of room if anyone wants to pop an advert in the first issue - preferably something Cub related - know of a good Cub parts supplier? Someone you can recommend? Let me know. gbc AT thecubmag.com
