    Just checked last year’s policy with Bennetts – a much more practical approach!!
    “must be kept in a locked garage between the hours of 10:00pm and 06:00am at the policy holders address or another address which has been specifically agreed with us.

    Hi Vincent,
    I gave them a ring and they have confirmed that the bike has to be taxed. Their insurance policies do not cover SORN bikes!!
    Also, while I was flicking through the docs, I noticed that there wasn’t the usual “theft from garage” clause stating that if a theft occurred from the property between e.g. 22:00 & 06:00 and the policy holder…[Read more]

    It doesn’t make sense?
    Surely the risk to them has been lowered if the bike isn’t going to leave the garage.
    It would make sense if they said you are only insured for theft from your registered garage.
    It’s my 1st year with MCE. So it’s a bit worrying to hear you’ve had such a bad experience with them.
    To be fair, I was impressed that they replied…[Read more]

    • I would ring and question them on this Steve…as you say the bike is sorn you cannot use it so less risk to them…I think you have had a reply from the tea boy.. there are vast amounts of cars and bikes that people only use during the summer and they are all insured for fire and theft and sorned until they are used

  • I read on another forum that quite a few motorcycle owners, particularly multi bike owners had put their bikes as SORN.

    I was considering “SORNing” my bikes.
    I was reluctant as I always thought that the bike insurance was only valid if the bike was taxed and had a current MOT.
    When Boris announced, “All cars, vans and motorcycles will be exempted…[Read more]

    Hi James.
    I’m a big fan of mousses and wouldn’t be without them.
    I’d suggest keeping to about 50 – 55mph and I reckon you’ll be fine.
    better for your bike as well.
