    What do we reckon, is it worth SORN'ing bikes if you can't use them?

    I did my new Guzzi, for a year, then a week later I'm not allowed to ride it. Should I SORN it and get a refund?

    WWJD?

    You lose a month's tax when you SORN it of course. Against that you're likely to lose 3 months for the lockdown - whether it goes on longer than that is anybody's guess. For bikes I don't know if it's worth while, especially if you've only got one. For other vehicles with more expensive tax, maybe. I'll probably SORN my van.

    Incidentally FYI all MoTs due after 30/3/20 are being extended by 6 months.

    I'll SORN mine when the law requires it. I don't pay tax on them anyway. If I did, I'd SORN them now.

    If you did it now surely you'd be refunded for April's VED?

    It's £6.50 a month for a bike over 600cc, less than that for a smaller bike. Hardly worth it, unless you have a collection to rival Jay Leno's

    Cost me £91 last week... I've ridden the bike twice. Might as well have 80ish quid sat in my account for the next three (or more) months.

    At work we have SORN'ed all but 2 of the DAS bikes as they will be sitting about for at least 3 months but kept 2 going "just in case". As we can still do CBT for key workers we have kept the little bikes running

    Every £1 is important to me and there is no point in my giving them away when its no hardship to keep them. Should have done it with the F8R months ago tbh...

    I've scapped my old Corsa... insurance was due for renewal a couple of days ago at 500UKP and tax from 1 April, plus the parking permit was also about to run out. That's saved me almost 900UKP. Both bikes are also SORNed now.
