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 ...

    Rejecting a new bike..

    Where do you stand legally if you reject a brand new motorcycle after riding it for a while.For example, my understanding is that under the sale of goods act, the goods must be fit for purpose and if they are not you are within your rights to return them.In this case, I have had a brand new motorcycle with an intermittent cut out. Clearly I must ride it to see if the fault is fixed, and I had some usage out of it before refusing, BUT, in my mind the goods were faulty from the start. As such, can the manufacturer ...

    KTM corrosion warranty issues

    I need some advice on my best approach. I bought a new KTM last September. I rode it until end November (3800 miles) then garaged up until March. When I took it out in March I washed it after a week and lots of paint came off the exhaust, it was badly rusted. I complained to the dealer and they agreed it would be covered under warranty. I noticed some other rust over the next few weeks on the rear spring and luggage racks. The dealer has just told me that KTM ...

    Turkey to UK

    I have a Ducati which is registered in Dubai, my insurer here RSA does not offer cover outside the GCC. I am planning to fly my bike to Turkey and then travel across Greece, Italy, Switzerland, France & the UK. If I buy insurance at the Turkish border will it cover me all the way back to Scotland? I have tried to insure the vehicle via the UK but the insurers are telling me they cannot as the bike is registered in the UAE. Does anyone know the best way to go about this?
