  1. Transalp XL650 V4 2004 HISS question

    Transalp Technical Specs
    Hi all, just bought the above, insurers are asking me which version of HISS I have, and I don't have a clue, neither does the internet by the look of it! Any ideas how to find out so I can get it insured? Many thanks and I am guessing this will be the first of many questions...

    I have a bike, taxed and tested, but now no longer insured. My understanding is that I should now SORN it. Is this correct? The bike is genuinely off the road and locked up safe and sound for a couple of months.
  12. Texting drivers refused insurance

    Seems that finally the insurance industry is taking mobile phone abuse at the wheel seriously - Texting drivers refused insurance. Fair punishment I reckon. Using your phone whilst driving is stupid and dangerous. However, I do foresee an increase in uninsured drivers over this. 100% free...
