Those twats at the EU are about to make a lot of new laws that will completely screw with our ability to wear what we want and fix/modify/adapt our bikes to our real world needs. Think compulsory day-glow and German style TUV laws. Other proposals on the table include things like compulsory ABS on all new bikes that will price smaller bikes out of the reach of those who usually buy such machines. Sep 25th is going to be a huge day of bike demos across the UK. If you ride a bike, get involved. Info at MAG - Homepage or in MCN. Basically, kick off will be 1pm (Thats 1300 to you lot) on 25 Sep (a Sunday) from a variety of locations around the UK. While you are looking at the MAG website, why not join? They fight for your rights and its not just about helmet laws any more!
