I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

Paper work sent off to the DVLA, should be interesting to see how long it takes.

I found out you don't have to insure it first to apply for a V5 . Not sure when this changed.

Things are moving in the right direction , The DVLA want the bike inspected and i have arranged this for Friday the 30th. Still waiting for the fork seals from Crooks, going to give them a call today and cancel the order.

We updated the registration section a couple of months ago to reflect the changes. It is still required in Northern Ireland. I would always recommend having it insured in any case. 

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki S3 400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

The V5 arrived only took seven weeks from the date I sent off the stuff to the DVLA. Got my number plate made up at the local MC shop and have been riding it a lot to iron out a few issues. Still have one that is bugging me.

The bike starts up and runs except for the top of the rev range up to 6K rpm no issues what so ever, but the last bit it just dies, ive tried changing the needle position but this makes it worse, cleaned and cleaned the carb out.
