i understand tax, but mot i thinks a bit silly, think of the dangerous bikes there could be?

i knwo they may not meet modern mot's so maybe do a different type of mot.

mot doesnt mean a vehicle is 100% road worthy
anything can happen when it leaves the testing station

it does seem a ridiculous ruling as every vehicle on the road should have a yearly check , this does include them bloody caravans that just seem to explode going down the motorway, what a effin mess they make.

Wow cooool... I'd have loved to have seen that, exploding caravan affraid

As for idiots who fly through dry stone walls coz they're too tight to buy new brake pads, hmmmm I'm all for Darwinian selection fofl

One one hand I can still remember some of the idiotic things people tried to scam their bikes through the MoT twist BUT I will never forget trying to explain that the rubbish brakes on my 1942 Hardly Ableson WLA 45" never worked even when it was new coz yanks can't build motorbikes. They'd never pass a modern weight/braking force test.
It's always been the arbitrary year for tax exemption I've taken issue with. All motorcycles should be exempt, accept Hardlys as they should be rated as trucks v funnyv funnyv funny
