I know you have asked Jon in the past.
PPK 345 is currently tax for road use according to DVLA online vehicle search.
The bike / registration has been spotted in the Kent / Sussex area over the last few years but who owns it I don't know as no member lists is on their current membership.

Hello Paul,
I'm the current owner of PPK 345. Like most of our machines, it's been a solo m/cycle for many years now.
What would you like to know?
can you drop me an email to research998@voc.uk.com please?
We've been wondering who the owner was for a while, as the last member to notify us was back in 2009.
