Guess what? Bikes are now registered and insured! Yaay! Valerie at Riders was spot on with her forms and instructions, and even the DVLA in Wimbledon remarked how efficient the pack was she had given me. So many thanks that woman - excellent work! Just waiting for the rego docs now and then we'll be on the road.
Failed on the frogspawn front though - old pond lady up the road is away for the weekend, so the niece will have to wait.
