    These days if you want to change the engine number on your V5, DVLA require proof of purchase of the engine, or an engineers report from the garage that did the job (what a load of ballsocks). As the owner of several (ahem) spare engines I phoned them to ask what you're supposed to do if you...

    In Edinburgh recently there has been a rash of ne'er-do-wells—children, dammit—stealing motorbikes, joyriding with scant regard for anyone or anything, and then burning them to the ground. It seems no-one is safe, particularly in the affected areas. But this report in the Evening News has...
