Default No you cant modifie your bike, FUCK!

No longer a distant threat its now here.
I have a trike and i keep my bike on the road by virtue of carrying out my own servicing and repairs. To have this work done by others will price me off the road.


16-03-11 Compulsory ABS and Anti-Modification proposals from the European Union:
A series of measures that threaten riders’ freedom to make informed choices, potentially putting riders in harms way and threatening the right to free-movement, have been proposed by the European Commission (the body of appointed civil servants that shapes motorcycle policy). A committee of elected Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) is currently considering these proposals and has already started toconsider recommendations in advance of a critical vote on 4th May 2011.

Nasty..but I don't think they will be able to back date it..so bikes made before the date of the new law should remain exempt..

Mind you I thought they would never ban smoking..so what do I know..

I have just written to my MEP, Brian Simpson, who also happens to be the Chairman of the Transport and Tourism committee, expressing my views on the matter. It doesn't take long to email your MEP, if enough of us cause a fuss we are more likely to get something done about this as we did when we beat the leg protectors proposals from our own government. I'm not going to let it lie and if you pride yourself on your ability as a mechanic I humbly suggest you do the same.
