Cheers for that link. Only about 7 mile from me and I've never heard of it. Gonna have a ride up for a look see now.

Whereabouts in N'land are ya Gremlin? Pointless recommending somewhere in Berwick if you're 100 mile away in Haltwhistle. As lowrider said N'land's a hell of a size.

Went up yesterday (got fekkin soaked). Place just opened on Monday and they reckon they've been chocka all week despite only advertising on Facebook and gumtree. Seemed canny enough lads. Probs motoX biased if owt. They couldn't help me as it happened but sent me up the road to Roosters and said to mention their name for discount which was nice.. It's only about 8 mile from N'land border. Depends where OP lives if it's any use?

Ah,i live in Yetlington which is also near Rothbury.
Best bet is to pop into the biker cafe in Rothbury on any sunny weekend and chat to the lads that get in and around there.
You should get a good cross section of people and advice

This place has a reputation for being genuine, never used them myself, but helped my daughter out with her 125 when I was away!

I also always find roosters ok to deal with, for tyres I always go to hunters, on the hill.
