Don't know if any of you have seen this yet, my dad found it in one of the classic bike mags.
A petition has been set up to try and get the historic vehicle classification for free road tax changed to a rolling 25 years.
While it doesn't affect any TDM's yet it's only 4 years off!!

Probably, but I signed it anyway. I was out on an IAM ride on Saturday, first one with the FZ and they were all 09 and 11's. When we stopped for a coffee, everyone came over to admire my 26 year old bike.

My wee car was made in 1976, and the tax is probably more than it's worth! Won't happen, though
