Friday (10/02/12) we had a call from a client in London asking for a quote, to collect in Harehills Leeds from VOSA at 15.00hrs, after a bit of haggling on the price, we got the job, but their was a small clause, we had to pay for the application form there and then, we were made aware of this, and the cost would be £4. 
 So we set off and arrived 14.20hrs, we went in the building, to collect the application form and hand over the £4, but what we didnt realise, the cost was £3 per application form and their was 5, so £15 total.  So after a couple of calls, we arranged to pay this, and be reimbursed the amount in cash on arrival.
 So we collected the application forms and secured them in our heavy duty secure bags with plastic tamperproof seal, we then collected the signatures and left our top copy with VOSA.
We set off from VOSA Harehills Leeds at 1510hrs to arrive at J6 off the M1 ( Watford) at 18.05pm thats 2hrs 55mins from Leeds to London with one toilet stop, some traffic with roadworks that doesnt progress any further forward, not bad going, no car could do that.
Temperatures dropped to around -5 and boy was it cold on the bike, I was greeted, and after a cuppa, chat and a warm I set off back to Sheffield which took 2hrs and 45 mins and temperatures were down to -6, and travelling at 80mph it must have been a winchill factor of around -30, that testing my clothes to the extreme, the only parts of my body that were cold if not numb were my hands, face, feet, and belly?, the Akito clothing is really good, but not sure why my belly was cold to touch, but I really love this Job, it gives me satisfaction.
Anyway, we have gained another satisfied London Client, who will in the future come back to use Gas Motorcycle Couriers of Leeds, Sheffield, Wakefield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Worksop and Chesterfield.
