Test ride minor damage resulting in highly unreasonable claim

Recently I took a test ride on a bike I am interested in. While out on the test I stopped to take a pic of the bike and not being used to its side stand I dropped it from a standstill causing the plastic hand guard to brake, a few minor dents in a sheet metal exhaust guard, the brake lever and the pillion foot-peg. Please see enclosed pictures.Back at the dealer I agreed to mention on the form that was filled in all the bits that showed even the slightest sign as the chap there said, what it appeared ...

Dealer sold me a Cat C bike!

18 months ago I bought a Suzuki Bandit from Jordans Bikes of Leeds. I have now found out that it has been a Category C insurance claim. Should the dealer have informed me of this situation?

Licence advice

I've been riding for 17 years. Mostly London. I'm sick and tired of CBT'S. My 125cc gets me from A2B quicker and most often cheaper than any other form of transport. I have no intentions of buying anything bigger than a 125cc. My problem is the pillion.I don't see why I should pay 600 quid, just to have a pillion on my 125cc. A 19 year old can benefit with a licence to ride on motorways 2up on a Ducati.I will benefit by giving the wife a lift to the tube station.I lose a lot more than 600 quid with time off work.Is there anyone else in this ...

bike tracker worth it?

Have bought a lovely bike and was considering a tracker. Its the kind of bike that isnt going to be had by kids as it if quite an effort to steal it. locks, chains, disk locks and so forth. A quick google has shown that informing the police of the location of the bike and most likely thieves incurs a %XA3150 charge for them to retrieve it. I pay something called council tax and seeing as though they havent recovered any of the 3 bikes i have had nicked previously or found the scallywags i feel that doing the hard ...

Exhaust length?

Have seen a bike i want, but the end of the Alfa 4into1 exhaust is about 2 inches short of the centre of the rear wheel. I'm sure that back in the 80's, the law required the exhaust to be at or further than the wheel centre....or is that not so now?

Confused on licence

I passed my full motorcycle test on a 125cc bike in May 2012 and consequently was looking forward to being able to ride a larger, unrestricted bike from this month.However, on checking my entitlement on the DVLA web site, my A entitlement shows up as 'provisional'. Whereas my car licence (passed the text back in 1995) shows up as a full licence.What's going on here? Please tell me I'm not going to have to take the test again! DVLA website is b**** all use as it only tells me what I'd need to do if I hadn't passed the test ...
