Default MOT Around Bedford?

Can anyone recommend any garage in the Bedford area (and anywhere relatively close) where they won't mind the loud music notes from my exhaust.

My local garage in Flitwick already made it clear that my bike would probably fail.

I've tried buying a baffle on evilBay but it didn't fit......the exhaust hasn't got a brand so can't find the right baffle.

Cheers!

Took it to the local garage in the end and they offered to swap the exhaust with the original one if i still had it..........thankfully, the previous owner gave me the standard exhaust.

MOT done and dusted!

Bedford Bike and Car on Kingfisher Wharf behind the Esso Station on London Rd have done bikes for me in the past. They have a more relaxed attitude to exhausts as they aren't really a safety item. They are as hot as any other garage for things like brakes, steering, tyres and lights etc.
