I was going to make a similar observation, but decided it would only be pi**ing in the wind as are so many of these grey /unexplained areas of trying to do the right thing regarding trials bike. Last time around I had a right pop at the broker guy about exactly your situation above..its to do with the make and model being "on the register" hence my query regarding homologation and a previous Question/rant about this. As you and I know there are specialist insurers available , however I would have thought it in the interest of our sport in general not least the manufacturers /inporters (not to dare mention govorning /representative bodies) to do all they can to facilitate trials both on and off road.

Insurance brokers are at he forefront of modern culture (but not in front of civil servants, solicitors, managment consultants,better stop at that else I'll upset everybody!); they expect to live the good life and make damm sure of it by asking for "money for old rope".. we can only blame ourselves for letting them get away with it.
