  2. I hope this bloke was insured otherwise he has to pay a huuuge Bill.
    Also if he was using his premises as a backyard repair shop I wonder if any customer's bikes will be covered by his business.
    Something tells me he will be filing for bankruptcy.

  3. That would have to be Sunshine MotorCycle Engineering :facepalm:
    Heard only a few things about it, but by those accounts a reputable business that does some great things with engine based performance mods, and custom made bikes. Glad the guy got out relatively OK, and thoughts to him for the loss of his home.

  5. the blokes name is simon,he is a really top bloke,i have delt with him in the last 6years.
    i must admit he had alot of junk in his house and garden,so that must have all caught on fire.
    he doesnt have insurance so he is in trouble

  8. Being a nice bloke won't help him if he doesn't have insurance for the bikes he was working on :-/
