Video: Knee dragging to head dragging
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 24 January 2014 15:41

You've heard of 'getting your knee down' when cornering, but have you ever heard of getting your head down?

Aside from unintentional helmet to concrete accidents, I didn't think so, which is what makes this video so awesome. It shows two guys riding around a track doing some pretty impressive cornering and the lead rider decides to lean so far that his helmet grazes the tarmac – insane riders and insane viewing! Watch the video by clicking 'read more'.

Vehicle tax will no longer be transferable between owners
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 17 January 2014 17:07

Vehicle tax will no longer carry over to the next owner from October 2014.

As the DVLA plan to introduce a paperless vehicle tax they have also revealed vehicle tax will not carry over to new owners if the vehicle is sold.

The DVLA will be scrapping the paper tax disc in October 2014 and along with the move to axe the 93 year old proof of vehicle tax, any remaining months of tax leftover will no longer be able to carry on to the new owner like it currently can. If you sell a vehicle you will be able to get a refund on the remaining full months, but if you're buying then you could be in a bit of a pickle.
