    Rubberscrubber, how many miles has your 1150 done? If it's getting near 100'000miles it may need a bit of TLC but that's probably all except for consumables and final drives.

    I've had to SORN my S10. I banjoed my foot and haven't been able to get a bike boot on so the MOT lapsed. Over 25,000 miles now, no significant issues.
