If you don't mind having a Q plate you can register it like a farm vehicle and you won't need MOT or insurance

You sure ? Only if the vehicle is more than (I think ) 35 years old , can you run without mot or road tax, still has to be insured. Q plates were for vehicles that had been written off, then put back on the road, or if age couldn't be determined ?

Farm vehicles can only run a very short distance from the registered farm without being totally legal.

No, the DVLA have introduced this scheme to reduce the amount of unregistered vehicles, you can even get a reg plate for a horse box. I've done a couple of my trials bikes so that they are included on my insurance

Can you give us a link to the relevant DVLA page? I can't imagine there would be an official way of running without insurance on the public highway.  I know they brought in a way of registering a vehicle that was not going to be used on the public highway, in order to combat theft.

No, sorry to mislead - you can register the bike without fuss, but if you want to use it on the road it will have to be MOT'd and insured. As a way of getting a number it is very easy and then upgrading to road use after
