    I suppose it is because this has got me so stressed out :mad: that this is the third time I have started this thread. I seem to have lost the others :dunno:.

    OK so I've got this scooter for my daughter but she doesn't turn 17 until October and as it's a 125 she can't insure it until then, well not without paying a ridiculous sum. I'd thought of insuring it in my name for a couple of months and then cancelling the policy, but that seems like a waste...
