This privacy notice describes how we collect and use personal information about you during and after your relationship with us, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data protection principles
We will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal information we hold about you must be:
The kind of information we hold about you
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). There are “special categories” of more sensitive personal data which require a higher level of protection.

Change of purpose

If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers including finance providers. We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We may transfer your personal information outside the EU. If we do, you can expect a similar degree of protection in respect of your personal information.
Why might you share my personal information with third parties?
We will share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.
How secure is my information with third-party service providers?

We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
What about other third parties?
We may share your personal information with other third parties. We may also need to share your personal information with a regulator or to otherwise comply with the law.
We have put in place measures to protect the security of your information. Details of these measures are available upon request. Third parties will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long will you use my information for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you are no longer a client of the company we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our privacy standard.
Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below). Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. Request the transfer of your personal information to another party. If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact our data privacy manager in writing.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Right to withdraw consent
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact our data privacy manager. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
Data protection manager
We have appointed a data privacy manager to oversee compliance with this privacy notice. If you have any questions about this privacy notice or how we handle your personal information, please contact the data privacy manager. You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues.

We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time, and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.

For Harley Davidson the V-ROD was a bit of a revolution, in conjunction with Porsche the engine was developed with liquid cooling and overhead cams, what this produced was a Harley engine with respectable BHP figures. This modern package makes for a cruiser which doesn’t struggle to brake, accelerate or handle but it hasn’t lost its roots the seat is still low, the bars are far away and the pegs are far forward which never lets you forget its still a Harley.
For 2008 the Honda Fireblade under went a serious upgrade the first since 2004. The 1000c inline four still has its rev-happy characteristics, stable chassis and handling that we have all come to love with the blade. The power delivery is utterly smooth which makes it a very good first “big bike” for those looking to upgrade from the 600cc super sports but don’t forget to take advantage of that fully adjustable suspension and have It set up by a professional.
The 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R is five out of five; for its generation it was one of the fastest production bikes as well as being ludicrously fast, it’s usability is much better than its predecessor wether on the track or road you never feel under whelmed from this serious models.
For the K3/K4 series Suzuki reduced the weight of the GSXR 1000 and made it more compact which always makes a good bike better. At the turn off your wrist as your watch the rev gauge raise to 4,000 rpm thats where the magic happens, and the GSXR 1000 loves to pull all the way to the redline. Its actually surprisingly comfortable too for those wanting to do a few more tourer miles on a competent super sports bike.
For its 20th Anniversary Honda released a facelift off the successful Fireblade. This series featured Showa big piston front forks, revised ECU and fuelling, new dash and facelift. The suspension mods make the blade feel that much more composed under braking and increase the feel off the bike keeping the blade feeling up to date.
The Kawasaki ZZR1400 is not only the fastest, most powerful motorcycle you could buy in 2006, but happens to be an extremely capable all-round machine too. Limited to 186mph (300kmh) the Kawasaki ZZR1400 will do it with a gear to spare. Capable of commuting, two up sporty touring, track days, drag racing, posing – almost anything is possible on the big Kawasaki ZZR1400 - just don’t try taking it dirt riding.
The go anywhere BMW, the well known R1200GS Adventure! The adventure model over the standard features a 33 litre tank, a boxer engine packed with torque, shaft drive for smoothness, ultimately this creates a class leading package in the adventure market.
Take Triumph’s superb Sprint ST and make it more adept at touring and also pillion friendly and what do you end up with? A Triumph Sprint GT. Sounds easy enough but in practice Triumph had to revise the Sprint’s chassis in a major way. So with a longer swingarm and steel subframe the GT becomes uber-stable when decked out with 117 litres of luggage, a pillion and 20 litres of juice. It goes further than that, though. Lower seat height, a wider, more comfortable pillion seat, built in grab rails on the topbox mounts and revised footpeg positions… and more. It is comfy for pillion and rider – good enough for Triumph’s claimed 200 miles between fuel stops – the engine is flexible and grunty, steering is agile but stable and it can carry a week’s worth of clothing with ease.
