MAG ride tomorrow, Sunday 25th September

Postby MarkB » 24 Sep 2011 11:27

I'm not normally one for protests or demonstrations (I've never been on one in my life) but MAG are organising a series of rides tomorrow (Sunday 25th September) around the country to protest about some horrendous potential EU legislation that will have serious implications for motorcyclists.

So I'll be firing up the Sport and heading off for South Mimms.

Cheers, Mark. Rebel without a waistline.

I shall be staying at home or going for a ride by myself on account of how I think we already have an image problem and enough people hating us without deliberately annoying them/ holding them up.... :(

That was actually my own reaction when I first heard about the demo, but I just felt I had to do something this time. It was a very good-natured and well-organised event: an impressive turn-out of all types of bikes, scooters and trikes; quite a number of shiny Harleys, various ratty bobbers and things, a couple of 70s Guzzis, an original Ducati 900ss and plenty of modern bikes, utilitarian and sporty. Hair colour was predominantly grey. The police were helpful and friendly, everyone behaved, people waved from bridges and the M25 was just the same as it always is on a Sunday afternoon. The disruption from a big race meeting at Brands Hatch, Silverstone or Donington is much worse. I'm glad I went.

Cheers, Mark.
