heres what we are all up against over here bodgie

there was a mass motorway ride in the uk last september 25th,it was on a sunday so disruption was at a minimum but it showed the goverment what was possible by way of protest if it were to be planned on a week day.

everybody from the entire biking community met at there local service stations and rode for a couple of junctions at 40mph across all 3 lanes slowing the motorway network to a crawl, locally to me where i joined in there must have been at least a thousand bikes times that nationally equals 10s of thousands guess what it hardly made local news never mind national press,....... was it blocked by the goverment??
heres a list of the new laws currently being proposed by the EU
LOOK AT 1,6,7,and 8
reading between the lines it says to me that stock factory spec bikes are all that could be ridden
take number 7 no bikes over 7yrs old in urban areas thats kangaroo s**t ive got no chance then mines 42 yrs old, pointless keeping a bike as a orniment Mad Mad

all these could be in force by jan 2013

1.The Anti tampering Regulation: Specifically Article 18 which wants to stop all modifications to complete power train, from airbox to controlling the rear tyre profile.

2.Compulsory ABS. If we can’t stop this, we must get a switch so that we have an option in difficult conditions where ABS doesn’t function well.

3.Automatic headlights on- passing the blame for poor observation on to us.

4.OBD. On Board Diagnostics so that easy roadside checks can be made of our emissions and so that constant readouts of engine performance can be obtained. Expensive, complicated and with the threat, rather like a tacho, of identifying past riding style…

5.RMI. Repair and Maintenance Information. Rather than keeping it hidden and available for huge expense, there is a chance that manufacturers will be forced to provide ECU codes etc for a fee. What that fee is remains to be seen.

6.The very worrying article 52: “If systems, components or seperate technical units on a list in a delegated act to this regulation, have a dual use, for vehicles intended exclusively for racing on roads and for vehicles intended for use on public roads, they may not be sold or offered for sale to consumers” So if your K&N filter can fit a CBR race bike and a CBR road bike, the best way to police that, is to make it illegal to sell the filter in Europe.The Delegated Acts are the most scary thing, as they are the lists and details drawn up by the unelected and we won’t get to see what they are including until after the Regulation has been passed!

7.In solidarity with the French we need to be drawing attention to their recent government proposal to ban all bikes over 7 years old from an urban area and to make the wearing of day-glo/ reflective clothing compulsory.

8.Full sleeve day-glo clothing for riders and passengers has been proposed in the Irish Parliament too.


9.All these issues lead to the same thing, that we must take the blame for the incompetence of other road users. And while the emergency stop has been removed as a compulsory element of the UK car driving test, we are jumping through hoops with ill-judged UK interpretations of EU licencing directives.

10.Another EU licencing Directive is on its way (3DLD) to step the bike licencing system still further and the DfT and DSA still haven’t sorted the consultation process, even though it is meant to be in law by now and enacted January 2013.
