Hi Paul,

keep them coming Paul. Anyway, he's been feeling a bit sick this week as he thought he owed DVLA duty on the 550. I'll let him tell you.

I would suggest that you were to go forth and multiply, but fortunately, I'm a nice chap. So you'll just have to get on with it...... :roll: :lol:

Not poor, but certainly smarter than a suvner from mercia.

There is also the bike that has had a lot of money spent on it and looks good but has been put together by someone whose Engineering skills are maybe not as good as they think, think of the bikes you have bought that look good and when you look close they are death traps.

I'm afraid I can't go with any this, if you're not legally required to have an MOT then the Insurance Company will need to clearly state otherwise. MOT or not wouldn't prove if a vehicle was roadworthy or not at the time of an accident.

The vehicle (of any type) has to be MOT'd when declaring MOT exemption, so it should be roadworthy at that time. Someone mentioned to me yesterday that Carol Nash insurance insured vehicles have to be MOT'd to claim for theft.

Not quite accurate, I believe they do a policy for insuring bikes that are just “projects” or shed bound. It is only fire & theft but that’s all you need.
