Yes and a reminder that most of us may as well SORN our bikes now as I doubt we will be on them in April.... Unless yours is essential transport of course.

Not bothering to sorn, my three are all sub 250 so low tax. The scooter will be used for the vital food shopping and pharmacy run. Leaving gloves and crash helmet on for protection :idea:

Mine’s still Sorn as of last October. Not that I’m totally a fair weather rider these days, just been spending the last few winters down in southern Spain. Counting my lucky stars that we decided to return home in order to spend Christmas here this time.

My Royal Enfield Himalayan is still taxed and under three years old(no mot) as it has panniers and can be pressed into service going out for food. My CZ 175 is historic tax class so no tax and MOT required.

For the first time ever I sorned my bike at the end of Nov thinking I'd tax it for March, but I'm leaving it sorned for now I bet we won't get the all clear till August at the earliest? Only long run was to be Kinlochleven for pre65 trial but of course that's gone now.
I've to start again now buying & fitting all the bits I had on the previous cb500x!!! :D

Won't bother, it's only £7 a month or so. I'll use it for some essential shopping at some point no doubt, useful to have it ready to go just in case something happens to the car etc....

Using mine daily , making the most of the quiet roads. Still plenty of idiots about though.

I've not bothered, it may save me £22.50 but I never bother with some in winter either.
On a related note the 50% increase a year or so ago was a bit annoying.
