Have you just treated yourself to that great bike – new or used – that you’ve been lusting after for months? British bikers are ignoring downturn paranoia and flooding into dealers to take advantage of the keen prices and tempting deals now on offer.

Steve Rogers, managing director of Raceways Motorcycles in Fleetwood, Lancs, says: ““In January we were three bikes short of selling double what we did last January – 39 bikes or £148,000 of stock, and we’re not a big dealer”.

The confident mood is one that’s repeated across the country as buyers take advantage of plunging mortgage repayments, cheap manufacturer finance and favourable exchange rates.

So if you’ve joined the rush to buy a bike, tell us about it and send a photo.
