We are also monitoring motorcycle issues and involved at Government Departmental level and lobbying in the background, setting the ground work, for the future.
It’s not rocket science, poor road design and maintenance can contribute to motorcycle crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
All Northern Irish motorcyclists have the right to clean roads!
You can report a road fault to the Roads Services through their website.
The result is a very slippery and invisible surface of which the motorcyclist has no warning and it almost inevitably results in the rider and machine parting company, often with serious consequences for the rider.

Elections for the Northern Ireland Assembly and Councils took place on Thursday 5th May 2011.
Our focus was on Road Safety – other vehicle drivers – the Roads Infrastructure (which should not make roads a dangerous place for motorcyclists) – the influence from EU legislation and the European Commission.
Our main message was and still is that the motorcycle community in general is looking after itself and is involved, aware and are taking responsibility for its own safety.
The next elections due are the European Parliamentary elections which are expected to be held in 2014.
Sammy who is also a member of the Associate Parliamentary Group for Motorcycling has submitted an Early Day Motion (EDM) to the House of Commons.
