Whats everyone's thinking on this ?
To export it there or use it on the road there?
I think this is a fishing trip
Difficult to carry rods safely on a sorned bike ?
You can take a sorned bike anywhere but on the UK roads
Think, exporting any sorned vehicle even temporarily is illegal ?
You can take whatever you want to Europe.....but you can't use it on public roads.
Perfectly correct for any vehicle
Is it an electric bike......
From the Gov website: 'Your vehicle must stay in the UK for your SORN to be valid. Find out what you need to do if you’re taking a vehicle out of the UK.'
Not sure how they police it, but them's the rules.
I think the same
Not worth the chance of fines or having the bike confiscated!
I was just looking for this link and you posted it. Not worth the risk is it
Not sure why you'd want to but I'm sure it'd be easy enough to do.
That does not mean it wouldn't be breaking any rules (which I guess is the question).
You'd need insurance to ride it on a public road and I don't think you could get that.
@bigtree Now you have the answers , what you gonna do ?
No expert on this at all but I assume you can't have MOT, road tax or Insurance on such a bike ? So surely that means it can't be used on ANY public roads no matter what the country.
A friend here has an old Honda race bike that he rides only at race circuits around Europe whilst on vacations, he takes it on a trailer there. He has insurance but i think that's more for himself and perhaps 3rd party liability.
I will be getting road tax tomorrow, I’m sure there are plenty people that don’t have road tax in the expat community but I will be legal. Just thought I would have a wee fishing expedition.
I have, by accident, taken a bike ( Honda Blackbird )that is sorn'd out of the country on a round trip of Europe inc France, Austria , Germany, Italy, Hungary and Croatia.I had it on a trailer on the back of the motorhome...Used it in every country too !
I thought I had taxed it before we left but had taxed one of the other Blackbirds instead
Never stopped, never checked..... Plod are too busy nowadays to check such things... Especially when they ( like most of us ) consider the rules the DVLA and DVSA make up are bloody stupid and pointless!!
It is MOT’d and insured plus it has just had a new back tyre fitted that I will scrub in somewhere warmer than here next week.
To be used abroad it needs to fully comply with UK law so MOT, tax and insurance.
Insurance will not pay out if these conditions are not met.
Bit of a discrepancy there.
It's not illegal to take abroad but SORN is not valid outside the UK which simply means it isn't taxed.
