A bit of bike history!

April 29, 2016

When I went to the garage for cleaning and polishing shoes, helmet and also the front fairings of the bikes, I decided to put the sticker of the UK Moto Guzzi club into Hugo’s tax disc holder. His last tax disc is from 2009, and he has been living in Sweden since 2010. And in Sweden we do not have tax discs.  Which also means that he is registered as a motorcycle, and not as a bicycle, as the UK-authorities insist on… Time for a change.

To my surprise, there was not only the latest tax disc in the holder, but the ones for quite some years back!

It is very interesting to see where he has been during the years, and he has been around for quite a bit:
1992 he was living in Cambridge, according to the stamp on the tax disk.
2002 he was living in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire.
2003 he moved South again, to Bulkington, Warwickshire, where he lived until 2007.
In 2008 he moved to Camblesforth, Selby, North Yorkshire, where he reportedly lived on a farm close to the big power plant.

Well, yes, and in March 2010 I imported him to Sweden 😀

I love it when one still learns more about a bike. After all these years ;-).
