There aren't any around Coventry. Ride up to Lichfield then pick up the 515 to Buxton from there head to glossop and then to Ashton under Lyne then you'll be within spitting distance of the emporium. The place where Maz resides. This is the best thing you could do for your Buell by far. It won't be only me that will tell you this. A satnav would help. But arrange it right and you could ride home the same day . It's a good ride there and back

Looks like I will be visiting the Emporium. Thanks. I can't stop giggling when I ride it, brings the youth back to the surface, with renewed attitude :)
