  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Hello MA folks. I've just registered for this site, and am still finding my way around.

    Over the past few years I've been looking for my Mini, but my vision has been clouded by the passion of motorcycles, and as a result I have a garage full of them.

    Early this year I had a heart attack, and subsequent surgery. The big bikes were just to heavy anymore and I started looking in earnest for my car, and low, there she was, the same value as my Harley.

    The trade went down, and here I am, looking for wise ways to spend my hard earned money on really cool mods. Because it's what I do..

    I'm looking forward to chatting with Ya'll

    Cheers!

    Welcome Badger...

    The MINI is the closest thing to a motorcycle.... You just won't fall over when you come to a stop light...:D

    Welcome! My story somewhat mirrors yours...

    Motorcycles have been my passion for some time. But I recently replaced a couple with a mini for my wife and I. Hope you will enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine.

    Let the modding begin!
