Find owner based on reg number

After checking when my bike tax was due online a few years back , I decided to check my previous bikes.  It showed that the Yamaha XJR I used to own is SORN.  Having checked again recently it is showing the same.  Is there an easy way to trace the owner?  I sold it 9 years ago so it may have changed hands from the bloke I sold to but I haven't got any contact details anyway, just the reg. I've heard the DVLA may forward a letter on if a good reason is given.

it's possible to request the details from the DVLA for a fee (think it's around £5) but you have to have "Reasonable Cause" for the information, like someone's parked in front of your drive or you're concerned about fraud.

Details what they deem "reasonable cause" for release of data regarding a vehicle.

The alternative is to make nicey nice with someone who works at the DVLA - get it for free!
