There's a website www.askmid.com that will show you if the vehicle is insured or not. It doesn't tell you anything else, but it lets you know someone still loves it.

As a matter of interest - if a registration does not appear on the national insurers' database, then there is a very real probability that the vehicle is not insured, or more unlikely, there is an admin problem with the reg number such as the letter M being confused with N when you quoted it over the phone to a call handler in India.

In any case, if a reg doesn't appear on the national databse, there is a very real chance plod will take the vehicle off you and leave you standing by the road side - any time of the day.

Oh thats just ducky... you mean if I were in GB someone could walk past my bike, get the reg number and the DVLA would just hand him my name (and address)?

I think you have to 'have a legitimate reason' e.g. you own a private car park and you need the address to send a parking fine to. That said, knowing how crap DVLA are, anyone can probably write in and they'll send them the details - providing they haven't lost them in the first place.
Back on thread, aircooled68's current 850 is just as sminky as his original one yeahyeahyeah.gif

2002 TDM900 in glorious yellow, MRA Vario screen, Scottoiler, HEL Brakelines, Givi Luggage, TomTom Rider, Fender Extender, Datatool System 4 Alarm, Michelin PR3 tyres, Eastern Beaver 3-way fusebox & relay, Powerlet socket, Oxford Premium Adventure Heated Grips.
2012 Honda Crosstourer VFR1200X. Hyperspeed tourer, the TDM is now relegated to winter hack and back-up bike!

1990 XTZ750 in black, standard apart from Micron silencer. Mechanical restoration complete, cosmetic restoration next on the agenda..
