January 2013

The magazine synthesizes our activities, comments and opinions and focuses in large part on legislation that has emanated from the European Union that will have a significant impact on motorcycling throughout Europe and particularly, here in Northern Ireland.

As a Northern Ireland based (not for profit) company, we thought it made sense to include articles about our activities here locally. The organisation of first aid courses for riders, Crash cards for bikers are just some of the activities that we’ve promoted and set up for the benefit of the Northern Ireland motorcycling community.  We also carried out an in depth study of motorcycle fatalities here in Northern Ireland in collaboration with Forensic Science NI, to understand more about why crashes happen in the first place.  The study gave us the opportunity of attending International Conferences such as the ESAR Conference in Hannover and the IFZ (INTERMOT) conference in Cologne during the latter part of 2012.

In our magazine, readers will find out about the generosity of bikers in this part of the world and the money that they have raised for charities.

We hope in this first issue to give people a flavour of what professional motorcycle lobbying is all about and what motorcyclists do to help each other and (we hope) to explain to the uninitiated about why motorcycling is such an important part of the lives of millions of people.

Finally,a big thank you to all of those who have supported us over the last year.  We hope to see you on the road more often in 2013.
