Great question however no one really knows .... my take is ... crash out with no deal and its tariffs on all UK goods leaving the UK. Leave with deal then its business as usual for a period of time.

Assume it'll be same as importing something from outside EU, like US or Japan, shouldn't be that much hassle. Having said that I think I'll try and get sorted before it happens

There would have to be a cut off point. I would say that anything in the UK registered pre brexit would be treated the same as now, as EU taxes are already paid. Anything post brexit will be the same as importing from anywhere else outside the EU.

dunno about that, i reckon the shower of cunts we have will tax it straightaway just to maximise the tax take, im tempted to get something now before the cost goes mental.

I think so too, but I also think they'll slap an emissions directive onto it as well. must be current emissions compliant - like the way all new cages must be euro6 etc .. they could specify it should be the same for all imports, exception for classics and the like. Bikes are euro 4 right now ?

Yup, makes sense but id say the japs will hardly make special bikes for the brits, most likely will be identical to all europe.

Commonly misunderstood, the Y2K issue would have been a disaster if it was ignored and not fixed, by those of us who worked 7 days a week at the end of the 90's to re-code the 12-bit field to a 4 byte container on crucial systems, (you're welcome).
What wasn't going on at the time, was a bunch of numpties, handbagging each other and arguing on how to fix the problem a month before all the chaos actually kicked off. Brexit on the other hand.........

Thank you :smileee:
What I meant was nobody outside the inner circle really knew what was going on(computers were still a mystery to most ordinary folk at that time)but it didn't stop "experts" from coming on the radio fore-telling doom,with planes falling from the sky,fridges going into melt-down and toasters rising up like some kind of budget terminator re-make.I just wish the brits would get on with it cos I for one am sick to the back teeth of hearing about the whole thing.At the end of the day we're all going to get screwed either way.
