How good do gloves need to be in France?
A new regulation in France requiring bikers to wear protective gloves came into force on November 20, 2016. Do the gloves have to be Ce-marked? Dick Howland, email
Answered by Chris Dabbs, MCN In theory, yes – see the French Government site (http://bit.ly/2hlrjco) which states there is now an ‘obligation to wear gloves for the drivers and passengers of motorcycles.’ But I think it is mainly aimed at moped and scooter-riding commuters rather than riders of big bikes.
