MAG have just revealed that during a recent meeting their political dept had with government officials, it came to light that the government are looking at the possibility of introducing anti-tampering laws, along similar lines to some other European countries. No details yet or any reason given. But we all know how some parts of Europe are very restrictive when it comes to modifying or customising motorbikes, for example Germany. I can't think what might have brought this on except it could have something to do with complaints about noisy exhausts, but that's just me speculating. If that is the reason then it would be easier for the government to bring in a blanket ban on ALL mods, rather than mess about being specific and then trying to deal with loopholes further down the line. All you non-MAG members out there will be pleased to know that MAG are taking up the issue and investigating on your behalf. No, no, you don't have to thank me for handing over my (paltry) £27 membership fee, so it can be used to fund the fight against idiotic bureaucrats and their daft rules. However, should this type of regulation be introduced because MAG couldn't muster the support needed to prevent it, then I hope non-MAG members don't complain when after-market exhausts, shocks and whatever else can't be fitted to their bikes. If we don't stand up for ourselves no-one is going to do it for us!
