There's a newish white BMW coupe that lives in the next village with number plate 33 EG
I saw him the other day being followed by his wife in a black Range Rover with plate EG 33 :D

Seen at Felthorpe Norfolk last night at Jaguar owner's club open display - a well restored Ford Capri 3.0 in yellow with registration POP 111R - and it was a popular attraction......

SA10 - I have seen this one a few times over the past decade or so. Sometimes I wonder if I should fit something similar to my little wee 20 year old Honda 125 - just to let the uninitiated know that I ride it because I want to, not because I have to :wink: . But, it is not really my sort of "thing" so will probably just let the dividends continue to come in instead. I admit, it is not a bad plate though.

SOLD: 1978 SE6a Auto.
1997 Ducati 900SS - Last carb. model.
1960 BSA Bantam D7 - more "fun" than the Ducati.
1998 Honda CG125 - great in slow traffic.
1981 Suzuki SB200 2-stroke twin - undergoing rebuild.
