So long, Eurocrats!
When the UK manages to extricate itself from the Euro world and its legislative excesses we, as consumers, can also reject its meddling in our motorcycles. Motorcycles can return to being basic, fun transport.
Unhampered by bulky exhaust systems, our bikes won’t sound like hairdryers. No compulsory ABS, which will make them cheaper, and might give a generation a chance to ride a bike with skill and feeling. No air bags, no stabilisers, no inflatable suits, unless we want them. Simplify and add lightness as they said in the old days. Robert Garnham, email
