Carole Nash cover me third party only on any bike I'm licenced to ride, which is any bike, no matter what capacity or insurance grouping.
You must have told some porkies to get away with that.
Don't forget that the other bike must also be insured by its owner to be fully road legal.
You'd be legally insured to ride it, in other words if there was an accident the third party would get paid out. But if the bike itself is not insured then it can't legally be on the road.
It doesn't say that in my policy anywhere.
Ah, hence producing insurance for tax disk. I see.
So, if there is a law being broken, who is breaking it?
I guess the registered owner is breaking the law by allowing an unisured vehicle to be on the road.
Does your insurance policy cover riding other bikes?
This is the bit i would like clarifying. Granted, the owners losses would not be covered in the event of an accident, but that is their risk.Let's say you are insured on bike X and then buy a new bike, bike Y, and transfer your insurance across onto that.If what has been said is true, how can you legally offer a potential buyer a test ride on bike Y, assuming of course it is still taxed and MOTed?
