Registering Bike IOM/UK


I live in the Isle of Man, but Im planning on moving back to the mainland once my house has sold. Ive just bought a bike from a UK dealer and would like to know if I will be ok to register it in my name, but at my friends address in the UK until I move over? This will save me having to re-register it in the IOM and then re-reging it once again back to its original reg number when I move. I will obviously change my insurance address once I move over.

Im concerned that my insurance & registration documents will have temporarily have differing adresses. How do I stand on this legally?
