SORNing bikes for winter could void insurance

Motorcyclists storing their bike for winter could be unwittingly invalidating their insurance if they declare it off road to the DVLA. MCN reader Alan Charlton, 64, was told his underwriter would no longer insure his Kawasaki ZZR1400 after he completed a Statutory Off-Road Notification.

If the bike is in a locked garage and is all nice and secure then laid up cover is not really worth it.

Then again, most laid up policys also dont cost very much either but then general bike insurance is not a hugh amount anyway ( i work for a broker).

This is also the same for cars as well as bikes, so yes indeed check your policys people, or as my first comment suggests, lock it up, lock it down, cancel your policy and save some cash until the sun come back, if it comes back

What a load of BS. Just because you have declared it SORN does not mean you don't intend to use it in the very near future. I do it with my car, and will be doing it again at the end of the month. I've never had any problems.

why bother?

if you're tax is £65, then 3 months is only £16.25, just leave it taxed and then if there's a few nice days in the winter you can still go for a play.
