Legal leg to stand on?

I bought a TDM850 from a bike shop (though sold without warrenty according to receipt)less than 2 weeks ago and whilst riding home from work tonight the engine blew. Do I have a "legal leg" to stand on as the bike now clearly appears to have been faulty and I don't expect to buy a bike which will not function any longer after less than 2weeks of normal use?

Legal to ride 125cc in UK on NI Driving license?

Hi, I live in Northern Ireland and am learning to ride on a Driving (Car) license - its legal over here to buy a 125, insure as learner put L plates up and ride with no CBT test (there isnt one). IF I went on a weekend to Scotland would my NI license still allow me to ride a 125 without a CBT? As a tourist not a resident obviously.

Free/Automatic legal Cover

If your insurance company includes so-called "free" legal cover do you have to accept the solicitors they nominate or can you still choose your own? I only ask because I specifically told my insurer that I wanted to be able to choose my own legal representative if necessary so didn't really want the free legal cover. He said to take the free cover anyway as it did not mean I had to use their nominated solicitor. Is he correct or am I being hoodwinked as there is no record other than a telephone conversation.

Legal to ride with no license on a farm lane?

I'd like to know if it's legal to ride a small bike on farm tracks when you don't yet have a license or CBT. I recently attempted to get my CBT, but after a morning in the yard doing slow-speed maneuvers I came off the bike into the back of a car when going onto the roads for the first time. I'm 30 and effectively have no driving or riding experience at all. I had a handfull of lessons in a car when I was 17, and that's it. So before going back to complete the CBT I thought I should ...

Filtering - a legal opinion

The following opinion on filtering law has been supplied by Claims specialist Thomas Lawton.   Filtering - How it differs from an 'Overtake'.Contrary to the belief of some motorists, filtering is entirely legal in the UK, providing that it is done safely. Once traffic speeds are high enough to suggest that the traffic is no longer queuing, your manoeuvre may then be regarded as a dangerous overtake.Where is it illegal to filter?As with any manoeuvre, you must not cause danger or force other vehicles to alter course ...
