Thank you,After the Budget and the economic forecast I found some good news for UK members
(Well it may be old hat) but
Rather than rumour and whispers "from a man who knew a man who spoke to a taker driver"
Finally a petrol company has come clean and given us a source of ethanol free petrol in writing

Very interesting. The mud is starting to clear a bit.HERE IT IS!!
a definitive guide to 'substantial change' and the 40 year MOT and at first glance it seems a perfectly reasonable stance and BIG Ed can keep his disc brakes (I think)
There is of course as always small print:
Further arrangements for motorcycles may be introduced, including if core testing standards are considered further internationally
Can someone explain this in a post brexit environment?
Ah Bruce, of course, you are right (a fact I was reminded every time I had to explain rim movement and taper roller bearings to the MOT man) but I cant issue a piece of paper that is recognized by bureaucracy however worthless in reality it is.I understand wanting to avoid the 'contributing factor, mechanical condition' issue, but I think you would be a better judge of a Vin's roadworthiness than any MOT inspector.
Update: just before Xmas I received all my supporting documents back but no V5c so just after Christmas I rang and was told send them all back so I did. Today I receive a letter asking for supporting documents and also -you guessed it a copy of my V5c still with the old information.I sent off my V5c with supporting letters from BMW (that cost an arm and a leg) and a motorcycle shop to say the engine in my Difazio was not the one in the logbook they sent the letters back saying 'please fill in the V5C correctly where indicated' of course the V5c was not in the envelope. 1st phone call 'Oh we send it seperately wait a week' next phone call 'we still have it ring after xmas'. Again I copied the V5c before sending it ,sent it recorded delivery and kept a diary with names and times of my calls. But who do I complain to? and these are our servants we pay for....
