My 600 is now officially ulez exempt and de-coked to boot ;)


Took a ride up the A1 to the newest entrant in Ulez testing.   
The owner Gary was very pleasant and informative.

He's kept the pricing the same as Riverside


He is very informative we had quite a long chat.
and a coffee :)  the bike is in full view through the window and there's a monitor in the waiting area showing the info.

Oh and the retest £75 stays that price even if you decide to leave and later return to have work done (or do work yourself).

I had the choice of stand outside or sit on a balcony looking at a canal when i had my bike done in the East End. The canal wasn't such an unpleasant option though.  :lol

midden, couple of questions for you, how much did it cost? and what did they do to your bike to make it pass?   They are advertising now. ULEZ Testing UK.

I see Kahn is now proposing extending the scrappage scheme for 'hard working families' defined as those who claim child benefit.  it's £1000 to scrap a motorbike.  I'm probably going to send my Fazer on it's way via this route, might be an option for others.

Presumably there's no limit on the number of bikes you can scrap?


So buying up loads of rubbish at £500 a go could turn into a nice little earner  :)

I'll assume your being humerous, there will be a limit per person and per househould.

You have to be on benefits, the bike has to have been registered in your name for, irc, 6 months, and you can only scrap one.

From my experience, all the scrappers want is the frame and logbook, some may want crankcases too. I stripped mine down (ER5) and sold off the bits, added another £600 to what I got off the scrappers, all for a bike which I would have been lucky to get £600 quid for. Paid for my Fazer.

ULEZ - I feel sorry for the people this is hitting, it really is an unfair tax. The other day that it would appear that Khan has exempted certain religious minorities from the ULEZ charge when they are on their way to a place of worship. I couldn't believe it, but a little research later and it appears that this is the case!


Having done a bit more research, I discovered that there are nearly 4 million Muslims in this country and only 3.4 million motorcyclists!


So, who's in the foccing minority?

Hi Mr.Red,
Only just noticed your post. Your thou should be ok if you pay for a CoC, which was around £70 in my case, as that bikes NOX figure is well below TfL’s threshold of 0.15. I think the big Fazer is 0.09, but then again only worth it if you’re a regular at the Ace for example.

I would be extremely surprised if you get the full £1000 if at all. Whats the model/year/mileage of the fazer..?

Got my 1994 Triumph Speed Triple through the ULEZ emission test today at Deptford. Doubt if they did anything as only took 10 minutes and didn’t see it tested, but all good just £175 lighter, although no pass no fee.

Yep, carb model. My pals 1200 HD Sportster got through as well. Give them a call, ask for Ian if he’s there, say what bike you’ve got and what are the chances of it passing. More than likely he’ll tell you over the phone.
