SORN'd mine at end of Nov as tax was due and since I now only ride for fun not commuting thought it was not worth it for the odd couple of days I might have got out.
Do you still insure it over that SORN'd period? Our road tax here is €88 and it really isn't worth it to SORN the bike for little savings. Not enough return to lose the bike for me, I love a good winter's ride. I'll not purposely go out when there is ice of course but there are so many lovely crisp sunny winter's days they are hard to give up.

Yep still insured - needs to be for the fire & theft / damage element.
Whilst working I kept a commuter bike (DL650) going all year. Used it daily unless there was snow on the ground (and even then used sometimes) but now retired I don't have the need to and the amount of salt on the roads I just thought why bother?
