Trip report: David Silver Honda Museum

Jeff, Bri & I had a couple of days away to Leiston, Suffolk to visit David Silver Honda Museum.

Jeff needed to pick up some spares for his CB750 restoration project, and we all fancied a trip to the museum.

Went up on Thursday - a fair old trip - Denmead to Leiston! Got checked in to our hotel and went out for some beers & a great curry!

Next morning after a hearty breakfast at the really nice Tiffins cafe, we went to David Silver's. Honda spares dealer par excellence! Also fantastic collection of Honda motorcycles (on two floors) from the 1940s onwards. Everything from kids scooters, through engines for bicycles to GoldWings & CBXs! I was fascinated by the collection of monkey bikes - they have loads! Unsurprisingly they have a CG125 - my 1st bike (1983, still love & miss that bike!)

After finishing there, we popped over to have a gander at the Sizewell reactors. Then a trip back down to Denmead - wait for it - on the Friday before a Bank Holiday! Amazingly the traffic back in our direction was relatively light, but was horrible in the other direction especially on the A12.

So, if you are a bike fan, and especially if you're Honda nut - a trip to Suffolk is highly recommended!
