Motorcycle recovery/transport.

As some of you may know lads I’m a van courier myself. I won’t need to tell most of ye that a*** fell out of the courier industry a long time ago and now it’s getting to the stage of basically working for free.

After a chat with Chopper and a couple of others I’ve found that there seems to be a bit of a lack of dedicated motorcycle transport around these days.

I’m debating packing in the courier craic and professionally fitting out my van to transport two bikes at once including proper hydrolic loading ramps etc for the oul heavy cruisers.

Is there much demand for a dedicated transport service to and from your home to major bike shops or roadside recovery? I would.also be open to supplying a UK collection service subject to demand. Do most of ye have your own van or access to one?

Opinions please lads…
