more visits - castrol/crescent/colchester/maclaren?

well being the HM Plant tour was great day out, would anyone else be up for doing more tours/visits like this?

Crescent Suzuki are im Southampton (about 70miles south from Croydon) though not sure if its a factory like HM

Castrol Honda are based about 50miles soutn from Croydon also - Camberley/Guildford way and apparently you can blend your own oil sample lol

Colchester Kawasaki are in Essex but i think they are more of a shop rather than a factory

Also have the Maclaren F1 team near Castrol too

Thoughts guys? Can email around if theres enough interest

ok i've looked

Castrol are in Swindon and is only really oil based as opposed to bikes ... most of which they have a video tour on there!

Mclaren are in Brooklands ...

Birdy MSS Kawasaki lives round the corner from me, I'll givechim a ring and see if I can get a tour, not sure what bikes he will have in though lol might even score some coke :lmao:
I'll also have a chat with Stuart Easton, Cal Crutchlow and Guy Martin and see if they can sort anything
