Can anyone advise on what to do about VAT on an import..

I have located a bike in the UK, 2008, but with only 1500 miles on it...

VRT about Ä130, but if I have to pay VAT, that's gonna be 4-figures!

Apart from trying to rack up 2000 miles in less than a month...what are the options?

» Portimao track event 29th to 31st March
Mar 13, 2019 - 11:55 AM - by gtabc
A group of us are attending a No Limits track event in Portimao on 29th to 31st March. Due to unforeseen circumstances one of our group of 20 is unable to attend and is keen to find a replacement. We are looking for someone who can hold their own in the Advanced group who would be interested in joining us for this event. The cost including 3 days on track and 4 nights accommodation is Ä 1100 (Excluding flights). The catch however is that whoever is interested needs to be ready to go as loading of the bikes is this Saturday 16th March in the Swords area in Dublin. If you are keen and are able commit immediately then please PM me so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

» Insuring another person on my bike
Mar 12, 2019 - 5:35 PM - by sub zero
How's it going lads.

Just wanted to ask a quick question about insurance and putting someone else on your policy.

My brother is coming home from the UK for a few days but has no way of getting around so I said I'd try put him on my bike policy. I rang CN last week just to see if it was possible and they raised no red flags and told me how much it would cost. Fast forward to this evening and rang the fuckers to pay the charge and now they tell me they won't cover him - that he has to be resident here for 6 months of the year!

My question is - is there any of the other insurers that would allow this or do they all have the same attitude?

Thanks

» CBF 600 - Installing a charger/heated grips?
Mar 09, 2019 - 6:50 PM - by SandR
Hi everyone,

I just ordered a USB charger for my 600SA (PC43) and I'm looking for instructions on how to install it.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01MSK7ZAV/

Heated grips installation instructions would do as well, I presume it's the same thing essentially. I need it to get power when the ignition switch (red) is in the "run position" and the key is in the ignition position too. Can someone please point me to a web site or docs that explains it?

Thank you.

» MotoGP Qatar: Friday practice times and results
Mar 08, 2019 - 12:00 PM - by Admin
Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has marmalised the Qatar outright lap record in second practice today, scorching to a 1’53.380 to top the combined day one timesheets.

Marquez went three-tenths under Johann Zarco’s existing circuit best using a medium front/soft rear combination and opened a near half-second lead over Movistar Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales in second place with Jack Miller in third on a 1’53.908.

It was bad news for Valentino Rossi, however, who went from fastest man in free practice two to only 17th in the second session and could miss out on qualifying one if laptimes are slowed by the heat in the third session tomorrow.

Danilo Petrucci mixed it at the top of the sheets again, taking his factory GP19... [Read More]

» Johnson re-unites with Lee Hardy Racing for North West 200
Mar 07, 2019 - 5:20 PM - by Admin
Lincolnshire’s Gary Johnson will re-team with Lee Hardy Racing for the 2019 Fonacab North West 200.

The 38 year old will compete in the Superbike and Superstock races at Portrush on a pair of ZX-10RR Kawasakis in the livery of Hardy’s RAF Regular and Reserves Racing squad.

He will also campaign his own 675cc Triumph in the Supersport events. Johnson has been making intensive plans to hit the ground running at this year’s NW200.

“While my race bikes are being built I’ve bought my own practice bike, a MSS Performance/Reactive Parts prepared ZX-10RR, so that I can go testing and take in some early endurance races plus the first Thundersport and National Superstock rounds,” said Johnson.
